Following on the success of the M2600 console, the mkII adds a meter bridge, switchable -10dBv or +4dBm signal levels for Tape In and Group/Direct Outs, increased trim control range, refined EQ and an improved power supply. The MU-2600 optional meter bridge is available for the 16, 24 and 32 channel versions of this new board.

Tascam has taken care of some of the dilemmas engineers encounter with lesser featured project studio consoles. Each eight channel block of the mkII has a -10dbv/+4dBm master switch so you can "mix and match" tape sources or synthesizer inputs to your needs. Also instead of "padding" down a hot +4dB input, the trim control has been increased by 2 dB. This greatly improves the signal-to-noise ratio. All the Tape In and Group/Direct Out jacks are 1/4" TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) so you can plug and play instantly.

Other nice things: mute switches in the monitor, full four-band EQ with new op amps accessible in the monitor path, beefier power supply for increased dynamic range, improved talkback and Control Room sections and new color-coded knobs with two-tone push switches.

The M2600 mkII sells for $3,199 in the 16-channels version with the meter bridge an additional $895. For more about it, you can contact: Tascam at 7733 Telegraph Road, Montebello, CA 90640, Call them at 213-726-0303 or WEB to: www.tascam.com
