Description
 
The preamplifier born as the highest peak of present age amplifier.

LNP-2L is changed into ML original module specification from the product made by Burwen carried in LNP-2.

It is a three-step stream composition of phone amplifier, input amplifier, and output amplifier, one module per channel is hit against each stage, and the amplification part consists of a total of eight modules which added one module each to meter.

The input/output terminal by the contact button "LEMO connector" of a CAMAC system used for special destinations, such as medical equipment and a physics measuring instrument, is carried. Moreover, the canon type connector is carried in the Tape input/output and the Main out output, respectively.

The volume, the changeover switch, etc. feed goods of highest quality into the part of each part.
Meter is made in Weston and the switching of it is possible for VU and a peek with an exclusive module. Moreover, in HF+ position, a high region correction is carried out and power is demonstrated to a cassette sound recording etc.

The stream composition which separated the power-source part (PLS-153L) is adopted.

<Meter window>
Meter Meter monitors WESTON precision type and a regular sound-recording Output voltage.
As VU meter 0VU=0.775dB 0dBm
It is a switching possible to 0.387V-6dBm and 1.228V+4dBm.
As peek meter 0VU=2.449V +10dB
