PPA - Phantom Power Adapter
The PPA2 from DACS is designed for connection of Soundman OKM binaural microphones to studio mixers and pre-amps with 48V Phantom power. It provides optimum voltage for the OKMs and balanced microphone level outputs. There is also an improvement in signal to noise, when compared to the A3 (around 2dB), and the headroom is slightly improved. The unit is housed in a box with a 3.5mm stereo jack for the microphones, and gold plated XLRs on the outputs. The unit requires no battery, but uses the mixer/pre-amp's 48V to power the circuitry that provides the bias voltage for the microphones. Everybody who wishes to make studio grade binaural recordings with the OKMs can benefit from this cost effective interfacing solution.
