The ITEC MicAmp 4 is a universal, compact, professional quality mixer/pre-amplifier with 4 audio inputs and one
audio output. All inputs are balanced and have high-grade input amplifiers. The Neutrik combo connectors allow
for easy connection of XLR or jack plugs to each input.
Input sensitivity can be switched (Mic/Line/Git), allowing for connection of all common microphones, instruments
and feed devices. A phantom power of 12V (or 24V if a 24V power unit is used) can be switched on/off for each
channel using a jumper in the device. The jack input is always phantom power-free.
The MicAmp 4 has a potentiometer for separate volume control for each input and a master control. The audio output is balanced and can be adjusted to Mic or Line level. This ensures that the MicAmp 4 can be easily connected
to Line inputs and available microphone inputs of existing systems.
The MicAmp 4 is perfect as a small mixer for choirs and music groups, as an input extension for existing audio
systems, as a mixer for multiple auxiliary devices, level booster, balancing amplifier, and much more.
Its high audio quality, easy handling and robust, fine metal housing distinguish the MicAmp from all other common
products on the market. Its use, ideally in combination with other ITEC components, is a guaranteed success.

Connecting microphones:
Connect top-quality electret capacitor microphones and balanced, dynamic microphones with an XLR plug.
Select the Mic input amplification (30db) Connect unbalanced, dynamic microphones and microphones with an
integrated battery using a jack plug.
Connecting guitars:
Use a jack plug to connect guitars (electric guitars or acoustic guitars with a pick-up) Select the Git input
amplification (15dB). If you require more volume, you can switch to Mic. If you wish to use the XLR connection for
that, switch off the phantom power.
Connecting Line-level devices:
Connect auxiliary devices, e.g. CD or USB players, or instruments, e.g. keyboards, using a jack plug. Select the
Keyb input amplification (0db) If you wish to use the XLR connection for that, turn off the phantom power.
The audio output:
The output level of the device can be set to Line or Mic (-30dB) using a screwdriver. Ideally, the audio output is
connected to the balanced input of the amplifier or an existing audio system using an XLR cable. Any phantom
power existing on these inputs is disconnected and thus rendered ineffective.
If you wish to create a transition from the balanced XLR output to a balanced plug (e.g. cinch or jack), please use
pin1 of the XLR connector as the ground and pin2 as the signal. Pin3 of the XLR plug remains unswitched in this
case.
