The Radial McBoost™ is a high performance microphone
signal booster designed to elevate the output of a typical dynamic microphone
for greater transient response and boost the signal of a low-output ribbon mic
to bring it up to a usable level for mixing consoles or preamps that may not
provide sufficient gain.
The 100% discrete class-A circuit design begins with a dual-transistor
J-FET circuit to produce up to 25dB of gain without introducing noise, color or
artifact. Each individual transistor is carefully measured and batch-sorted to
comply with the design specification to certify performance. As with all Radial™
products, the circuit board is then loaded into a 14-gauge, I-beam, reinforced
steel enclosure to prevent outside stress from torquing which otherwise could
lead to premature part failure. A book-end cover creates protective zones at
each end to safeguard the switches, potentiometer and connectors from the
rigours of the road.
Merely connect the McBoost in-line using standard 3-pin XLRs and activate
48V phantom to provide power. Select between three impedance settings to
optimize the response and then reduce low-frequency clutter with the 3-position
high-pass filter. The McBoost will elevate the output to produce added clarity,
excitement and extra drive for long cables whether you are in a recording
studio, on a live concert stage or in a broadcast center.
