|Hi Don, (Why did you have to wait for yours to be available? What did you use the mixing feature for?) I bought my Model 150 new, circa 1981. The mixing feature was important to me also, because I had a vision of having two turntables and recording realtime collections of tracks... |

|Hello Steve et al|
I bought the MXR System Preamp II to replace a dying Phase Linear 4000. The PL 4000 could fade from one input to another, so the MXR was the logic (and only) replacement I found. I had to wait for it to be available, and it was worth the wait. I use the MXR pretty much daily, works great even after all these years. It's the best piece of hi-fi I ever had.

|Hi Don, Thanks so much for your message. Can you share with us, how you came to own the MXR? Which model? |

|way cool to hear others appreciating this fine preamp. My M-150 needs it's switches cleaned, but other than that it has preformed to my every expectation. I love it, don't know what could replace it. I haven't seen anything comparable. Don |

It is very interesting that you think yours might be different from the one pictured here. The models 140 and 150 were virtually identical. I am not aware of any other preamp models that MXR made. If there is another, I would very much like to find out about it. Could you send a pic? You can contact me at: [see homepage ABOUT]. Thank you for posting.

|I have a MXR preamp and graphic equalizer that I bought new from the old Stereo Cost Cutters (SCC) mail order store in approximately 1985. At the same time I bought two Marantz MA-5 monoblock amplifiers and a Marantz 2130 tuner. I believe SCC could not get any Marantz preamps as closeouts, and so they sold the MXR for those who wanted to buy a whole system. My unit is smaller and simpler looking than the one pictured here. It has no tone controls, but does have external processing loops where the graphic equalizer is easily added. I no longer use this unit on a daily basis, but it is in my garage in like new condition. I am sure I will find a use for it someday. |
