Radial launches single channel ProMS2 mic splitter

The Radial ProMS2 passive splitter features an Eclipse ET-MS10 transformer equipped with a mu-metal can to shield the circuit from outside electro-magnetic fields.

Radial Engineering has launched the Radial ProMS2 – a passive single channel mic splitter designed for PA, recording and broadcast applications. The engine inside is an Eclipse ET-MS10 transformer that exhibits less than 0.01% distortion at 20Hz. It’s equipped with a mu-metal can to shield the sensitive circuit from outside electro-magnetic fields, ensuring an artifact-free signal. ProMS2 features include microphone input with -30dB pad and 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 power should a condenser mic or active DI box be in use. The second is a transformer-isolated output that helps to eliminate the 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. Radial production manager Steve Hopia commented: “Radial has been building custom mic splitters and snakes for over 20 years. More recently, the Radial OX8 has gained notoriety as the mic splitter of choice with artists as diverse as Rush and U2 when recording live performances. We felt that it was time that we made a single channel version of the OX8 that could be used for general PA applications and installations where high performance is needed at a more affordable price point. The ProMS2 delivers in spades!”
