The PT2-500 from True Systems is a single channel microphone preamp and DI module for use within most 500 series rack formats. The company's new Type-2 design gives this ultra-resolution preamp all the detail of their other models, but adds serious analog depth and warmth.

Microphone connectivity is available on the rack (not included), while the instrument DI and THRU connectors are available from the front panel. Switchable phantom power, an 85dB high-pass filter and polarity switch provide basic functionality to this high gain preamp.
