TRUE Systems announces the introduction of the pT2-­500D Precision Dynamic Preamp in the API™ 500 series module format. The pT2-500D preamp is optimized for dynamic and ribbon microphones, and also produces superior results with self-­powered tube microphones. While similar to True Systems's TEC-nominated pT2-­500, it provides a unique low frequency adjust control, higher input impedance and more gain (76dB).

The six-position low frequency contouring knob allows you to tailor the response for  applications like vocals and bass DI use.  As with the original pT2-500, the In and Thru connections include a discrete FET DI as well.
