Award-Winning Midas Preamp

With decades of design experience paired with premium components, Midas preamps are revered for their ability to bring out subtle ambience, maintain spatial positioning and capture precise imaging. The 502 preamp builds on this legacy, yielding the organic warmth and depth millions of listeners recognize. Even low-level sources are reproduced with impressive clarity and realism. The 502's discrete transistors take transparency and low noise to the next level.

Modular 500 Series Design

Housed in a 500 series-compatible module, the 502 preamp integrates seamlessly into new or existing racks. Use it alongside equalizers, compressors and effects in a lunchbox or dedicated chassis.

High Input Levels Without Distortion

The 502 preamp's input stage handles up to +24dBu signal levels without a pad, allowing you to capture loud sources without distortion. Even when pushed hard, the 502 maintains its clear, smooth character courtesy of Midas' signature soft clipping. The preamp's robust design takes on a new dimension when driven into overload.

Twin Balanced Outputs

With independent main and auxiliary outputs, the 502 gives you flexibility in signal routing. Send the main out to your mix bus while using the aux out for recording or broadcast feeds. The electronically balanced outputs deliver pristine signal integrity even at long cable lengths. Put the 502's twin outputs to work driving multiple signal paths.
