Gearank Recommendation

The sE Electronics DM1 was on our recommended list for Microphone Preamps from March 2021 until it was out-ranked by the Cloudlifter CL-1 in September 2022.


The sE Electronics DM1 Dynamite is an inline active mic preamp for dynamic and ribbon microphones.

Powered by your interface or mixer’s +48 volt phantom power, the DM1 Provides +28dB of clean gain independent of load.

High-grade FETs and transformerless design delivers transparent sound with a low noise floor.

For the price, The sE Electronics DM1 Dynamite brings a lot to the table especially for users that have dynamic mics but with interfaces that introduce too much noise when cranking the gain.
