PSC Press Train Overview

The Press Train from PSC is a compact, one-input and twelve-output passive audio distribution box designed to deliver multiple audio feeds for press conferences. The single XLR input accepts a standard +4 dBm balanced line-level signal and outputs twelve, transformer-isolated microphone-level outputs. The unit is built to survive its intended use and is housed in a waterproof Pelican 1120 case for ease of shipping.

All the outputs have isolated grounds to eliminate ground loops. The input transformer is custom wound, mu-metal-shielded, and its high input impedance ensures that up to eight Press Trains can be connected to any professional 600Ω balanced line without excessive line loading or distortion. Using the two line-level loop-through connectors can yield up to ninety-six separate, transformer-isolated, microphone-level outputs from a single line-level source.

Up to three-hundred outputs can be created using the company's Press Bridge and twenty-four Press Trains, without loss of sound quality. Interconnection of additional PSC Press Trains is accomplished using standard microphone cables.

question

Do I need to plug this in for it to work?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is a great little unit very affective. I pluged my mic and all other input audio into a mixer output from the mixer to the Press Train. Media all plug into the press train (cameras, audio recorders, etc.) and all recording devices receive crisp sound. You definately need a mixer into the mix to have the unit work. No power required for the Press Train.

question

Can you plug xlr directly from microphone to input to distribute?
Asked by: Dan O.
No , This unit requires a line level input. You must send off a line output on a mixer. outputs to press are mic level.
