Whirlwind PRESSMITE overview

  • 1Description

The Whirlwind PRESSMITE is a professional, compact active press feed box with the capacity of distributing 12 clean mic level signals and two line level signals, and featuring high isolation between outputs. It provides 60 dB of gain adjustment on input, which accepts mic or line level signals.

The PRESSMITE features a built-in headphone amp, and is powered by a pair of standard 9V batteries that typically provide more than eight hours of continuous operation. A Battery OK LED is provided for monitoring. In mic input mode, 18V phantom power is available, and the three-segment LED headroom display enables quick level adjustment.

The PRESSMITE is a rugged, useful tool designed to withstand the rigors and hectic environment of press conferences and other public broadcast events.

    Whirlwind PRESSMITE reviews

    PRESSMITE Active Press Box with 1 Mic/Line in to 12 Mic/2 Line Out is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and does the job The price for this item may scare you a little at first, but we have found it to be a worthy investment. If you're looking for a mult-box, then you obviously have need for one; and you'll likely have need for one in the future. Get this one. If you just need something for a one-time event, rent one or come up with a different solution. But, if you're on the fence, like we were for about two years, just get it and it will make life so much easier. The battery compartment is weird and seems like the weakest part of this product. You'll have to use a little screwdriver to pop the battery case open. Also, I would suggest a case for the whole unit too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A press box that works! I have been using press boxes from different manufacturers for years and they all seem to have one problem or another. Sometimes the isolated outputs are not as isolated as they should be and one bad XLR cable introduces buzz and hum to the whole system. Other times the passive boxes just don't output a usable level. The Whirlwind PRESSMITE, however, seems to work perfectly. It comes with both a power supply and battery power options so it can be used everywhere. It has a switchable line/mic input and can provide phantom power. It is also the first one I have used that has a headphone out so you can check the output during setup. I have only used it a few times since I purchased the unit but it will be my go-to box for the foreseeable future. The one downside is that it only has two line outputs. I would like a few more but it is not really a big deal given that I more often use the mic levels anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything As Advertised We use this in an 1100 seat venue as our media feed. The Pressmite does everything it should: provides clean signal to whatever is plugged into it. We have been using one for about five years now and no one has ever complained.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Very Good Quality Having a Active model like this Whirlwind PressMite takes the guess work out of it as this one takes Mic or Line in & is adjustable .... I'm glad I didn't go cheap on this !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mult box on the go! Very portable and doesn't require power (2 9V batteries will work) so it goes everywhere. Easy to use, convenient headphone jack on the front. Second one I have bought.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well would by another Very nice piece of equipment. My techs love it and we are looking to purchase another in the near future. We wish that they had one with 16 channels.
