MicPort Pro from CEntrance is a 24-bit/96kHz broadcast quality USB mic preamp used by the BBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and voiceover professionals. MicPort Pro is your mic-to-computer audio interface, compatible with Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X 10.4 and above, and LINUX. MicPort Pro features 48V phantom power, a loud headphone output for zero latency monitoring, and aggregation that allows you to record in stereo with two MicPort Pro units. Even test & measurement guys love it with MicPort Pro's SMAART v.6 compatibility.

No batteries. No latency. No headaches. Just plug in and record.

Record Anytime, Anywhere!

At home or on the road, MicPort Pro's compact, USB-powered design offers maximum audio fidelity and minimal system configuration. Protected by a rugged chassis, MicPort Pro's Class A preamp and low-noise circuitry preserves high-quality audio.

The onboard headphone jack delivers zero-latency monitoring via direct circuit. Mic gain and headphone volume adjustment couldn't be easier with MicPort Pro's two conveniently located rotary controls.

MicPort Pro A/D and D/A Converters:

MicPort Pro uses high performance 24-bit A/D and D/A converters. The ADC has an Enhanced Dual Bit architecture with wide dynamic range. The DAC uses the newly developed Advanced Multi Bit architecture and achieves low noise and high jitter tolerance by use of SCF (switched capacitor filter) techniques.
