Low THD P48 Dual Channel Phantom Power Supply
Sound-Link are now the UK distributor for the new True Phantom® power supply unit.
Committed to Perfection
True Phantom® is the only real update on the now standard Phantom powering method, the advantages are easily heard and will work with all Phantom powered microphones.  Literally “a breath of fresh air”.
True Phantom® does not affect the frequency response of the microphone but lowers the microphone’s
THD significantly, as well as improving the headroom and lowering the noise floor.

For powering condenser microphones, the IEC 61938 Phantom Power supply has been the standard for 50 years.  Although being proven technology, there are several disadvantages.  The microphone signal, for instance, is not completely available to the microphone pre-amplifier.  To the microphone’s circuit, the 6.8kΩ resistor presents a load, this causes distortion and reduces the available signal level.  Also, with the IEC 61938 Phantom Power implementation, isolation from the rest of the preamp or mixer circuit is not complete, this can negatively affect noise performance.

True Phantom® uses patented technology which overcomes these problems.  By replacing the 6.8kΩ resistors with current sources, distortion is reduced - especially the (unpleasant) 3rd and 5th harmonics.  Also, headroom is improved and the noise floor is lowered.  True Phantom® still complies with the P48 standard.
We will have True Phantom® on our stand at SoundPRO

New Håkan Pop Killer versions

The new Håkan Pop Killers announced earlier in the year are now in stock and shipping.
The three new versions are: the 1" Gooseneck version to fit larger microphone stands with a diameter of up to 1" (25mm) - the INV-7HG-V version is designed for use when the suspension is verticle and is the perfect option for use with the Microtech Gefell UMT 70S and MT 71S microphones (or any microphone side-address microphone with a diameter between 19mm and 25mm) - the INV-7HG-H version is designed for use when the suspension is horizontal and is the ideal option for use with small diaphragm condenser microphones such as the Microtech Gefell M 300.  But this version can be used with virtually any microphone that will fit the Rycote INV-7HG III.
We will have these on the stand at SoundPRO
All Pop Killers are the same price and all 9 versions are normally ex-stock UK.
