The Whirlwind PB12 is a passive Pressbox microphone output expander, housed in a rugged steel case, for that company's PRESSPOWER2 and PRESSMITE active press box line outputs, or any other live press conference or forum application where a line level feed is available.

The PB12 distributes one line level input to multiple mic level outputs. Each output is transformer isolated, providing superior inter-channel isolation and ground lifting, to help eliminate noise problems, and Whirlwind's own TRSP-2 transformers are used throughout.

The PB12 is a professional product in a moderate price range, intended for broadcast and commercial conferencing applications.

        For a passive mult box? Can't ask for anything more. Good sound, simple to use, high quality connectors, solid construction that can put up with klutzy cameramen stepping on it and clumsy reporters spilling chai mocha lattes too.

          This press box works flawlessly. Had to get it in on short notice [...] Five lines to TV crews and four to recorders for print journalists. Worked great, will be using it whenever I need to give multiple feeds.

              Sturdy, very typical of Whirlwind products. Quiet, no cross talk between outputs. Replaced an aging battery powered Pressmite with this passive one - should last for years.
