True Systems PT2-500D 500-Series Dynamic Microphone Preamp

The True Systems PT2-500D 500-Series Dynamic Microphone Preamp, optimized for dynamic and ribbon microphones, it also produces superior results with self-powered tube mics!

True Systems PT2-500D 500-Series Dynamic Microphone Preamp Details

While similar to the TEC Award-nominated True Systems PT2-500 500-Series Microphone Preamp, the True Systems PT2-500D 500-Series Dynamic Microphone Preamp provides more gain (76 dB versus 70 dB) and higher input impedance, along with a unique low-frequency adjust control. The LO-F Adjust is a 6-position switch that provides nuanced low-frequency contouring that can be particularly effective with vocals and bass DI applications. A discrete FET DI with In and Thru connections completes the package.

True Systems PT2-500D 500-Series Dynamic Microphone Preamp Features
