Vancouver BC (March 11, 2014)—Radial Engineering has released its ProMS2, a single channel mic splitter designed for PA, recording and broadcast applications.
Inspired by the Radial OX8, the unit is completely passive and 100 percent discrete. Inside, the ProMS2 sports an Eclipse ET-MS10 transformer that is reportedly linear from 20Hz to 20 kHz while exhibiting less than 0.01 percent distortion at 20 Hz. The Eclipse transformer is equipped with a mu-metal can that shields the circuit from outside electro-magnetic fields.
Features include microphone input with -30 dB pad to enable extra high level sources to be used without saturating the transformer. There are three outputs: The first is a direct-coupled output that is normally connected to the main FOH PA system mixer and provides a return path for 48 volt phantom should a condenser mic or active DI box be in use. The second is a transformer-isolated output intended to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. The third is a direct output with a ground lift switch. This auxiliary output can be used to feed the stage monitors, recording system or remote broadcast truck.
The ProMS2 is made in Canada using heavy duty 14 gauge steel and features an internal I-beam frame. The outer shell may be removed to mount inside the J-Clamp to attach the ProMS2 to a podium or several may be ganged together and mounted in the J-Rak for multi-channel installations.
