Radial Introduces the Radial ProMS2 Single Channel Mic Splitter

Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to introduce the Radial ProMS2 - a single channel mic splitter designed for PA, recording and broadcast applications.

According to Radial Production Manager Steve Hopia: "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!"

The Radial ProMS2 is completely passive and 100% discrete to ensure optimal signal flow. The engine inside is an Eclipse ET-MS10 transformer that is exceptionally linear from 20Hz to 20kHz while exhibiting less than 0.01% distortion at 20Hz. The Eclipse transformer is equipped with a mu-metal can that shields the sensitive circuit from outside electro-magnetic fields to ensure the signal is delivered without artifact.

Features include microphone input with -30dB pad to enable extra high level sources to be used without fear of 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 that is particularly adept at eliminating 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.

The ProMS2 is made in Canada using heavy duty 14 gauge steel and features an internal I-beam frame that is virtually impossible to torque. This ensures outside stress will not cause premature failure of the solder points that connect to the various components, connectors and switches. A unique book-end design creates protective zones around the connectors and switches to further prevent mishap on busy stages. 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.

The ProMS2 is now shipping.
