The M267 is part of a dynasty of Shure preamps which have been used in the USA & round the world for forty-odd years. They’re definitely not audiophile units, but utilitarian devices for small-scale PA & location recording uses. Their appeal for recording lies in the transformer inputs

The M267 has transformer-balanced inputs and outputs, low-cut filters on the inputs , a VU meter and a headphone output. It also has a built-in line up oscillator, switchable phantom power and three power sources (DC, battery or AC)

These are fantastic-sounding devices – I have many happy customers using them to crush room mics when recording drums & guitars!

“I have an M67 and an M267. Both are great color boxes and can make some really nice recordings”

“Whether being hardware or software, what’s your current go-to device to foul all kind of sound sources up beyond all repair?

“-Shure M267 microphone mixer. Has transformer love in and out.”

The M267 is in a small, portable steel case with XLR inputs & outputs on the rear and controls on the front. There's also a battery compartment on the underside and a preset pot to set the limiter threshold. That's about as inconvenient as it could be, so a good mod might be to lose the front-panel headphone pot and use it for limiter threshold

Front panel has 4 channel level controls & lo-cut switches. Filter frequency is 120 Hz approx and response is 10 db down at 50 Hz. Input 1 has an oscillator switch providing a 1 kHz tone for gain staging & alignment purposes

The front panel also has a power on / off switch, battery check momentary switch, limiter in / out switch and a headphone socket with headphone level control

Back panel has ins & outs plus mic / line switches for inputs and output. The mic level output allows the M267 to be daisy-chained with other mic mixers if required. There's a global phantom power on / off switch and phantom is 30 Volts. There are two terminal posts to connect an external DC power supply. Finally there is a VU meter sensitivity switch and a mix bus connector to link to another M267 or compatible device

Mains input is 220 Volts with a fixed 3-core cable with UK power plug. Power can also be supplied by three 9 Volt batteries in the battery compartment or by a DC source (27 V DC nominal)

Freestanding unit. Dimensions are 22 x 29 x 6
