SD website states it's 1.13 lb not 1.3 lb

Its cheaper and lighter than the mixpre with digital out and more detailed metering too.
Still hope you can join 2 of these together.

Reading this looks as if it uses not only the same preamp as the 7 series recorders but also uses the same A/D converters as them!! So I guess if you run this with an MT your recording will be the same as running a 7 series recorder but a cheaper and lighter option.

if you run this with an MT your recording will be the same as running a 7 series recorder but a cheaper and lighter option.
Don't forget you still need to factor in the Tekkeon USB battery. And external powering to the MT depending on the condition of the internal battery.

Looks like there are retailers taking pre-orders for $549:

The description from the website states:

To interconnect with sound systems big and small, the USBPre 2 includes numerous output connection types, including balanced mic- or line-level on XLR, unbalanced consumer line-level on RCA, S/PDIF coaxial (RCA) and optical (Toslink).

The photo doesn't show the S/PDF coaxial (RCA) out -  but the manual shows it:

http://www.sounddevices.com/download/guides/USBPre2_en.pdf

You can also use it with the Microtrack II

It's 0.5kg (Mixpre is 1.2kg)..Less than half the weight of a mixpre and also have digital optical/coaxial out.

Also it looks as if it runs on 5V USB power. Very interesting.

There is the one picture not posted....its the side with the usb...you will clearly see the coax....I tried to attach it but it won't, you have to go to the website to see it............its there....  OOK

Yeah...I know Church Audio does a really stealthy 5V external battery for recorders

http://cgi.ebay.com/MICROPHONE-BATTERY-BOX-STEALTH-R09-LS-10-MICROTRACK-MD-/250648957070?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item3a5bd7908e

I don't think that's it. Looks like a standard 9v battery box for mics.

I scratched my head trying to figure out what you were talking about for a minute....then I realized you have to click on the pic of the USB jack to see that side. D'oh!

This may be the pre the mt2 has been waiting for, half the price of a V3.   Looks like it wll be a nice pre for the R9hr and PCM-10's of the world as well.  However you still can't beat the little boxes for value. 

I love how technology marches on and offers the tapers new and better products..

Haven't tried any of these. Depending on your needs, go for the bigger models that have been used more by the community.

Generic 4xAA battery bay, fill it with your own NiHM cells, from $4 + cost of batteries: http://www.batteryspace.com/batteryholderaax4withusbinterfaceconnectorandbeltcliponoffpowerswitch-rohscompliant.aspx
Lenmar PPUMINI, 650mAh, $6: http://www.dadadeals.com/products/Lenmar-PPUMINI%252dP-PowerPort-Mini-Anywhere-Universal-Charger-%28Pink%29.html
Macally JBOXMINI, 1100mAh, $11: http://www.provantage.com/macally-jboxmini~7MGMA06T.htm
Macally JBOX (IP-A481), 3400mAh, $17: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170494701024
Lenmar Powerport (PPU2100B), 2400mAh, $21: http://www.iunitek.com/iunitek/index.cfm?fuseaction=shop.dspSpecs&part=2245603
Or the whole range of Tekkeon offerings:
Tekkeon MP1800, 4000mAh, $28: http://www.ecost.com/detail.aspx?edp=41290606&source=EWBBASE&cm_mmc=CSE-_-google-_-ewbbase-_-Office&CAWELAID=367057023

By the look of it, the Macally Jbox on Ebay is a nice deal at the moment!
