Countryman Announces Phantom Power Supply

Countryman Associates has introduced a rugged portable Phantom Power Supply with flexible settings and high audio performance.

Countryman said the device offers flexible power options and selectable voltage settings. It can operate on one 9V battery, two 9V batteries for extended life or a 9V wall adapter.

Selectable 12V, 24V and 48V voltage output settings allow the Phantom Power Supply to extend battery life for microphones which don’t require 48V power.

Designed for use in the studio and on location, the Countryman design team made certain the unit can withstand adverse conditions typically encountered in live performance environments. The supply’s portable, compact form factor consists of a rugged die cast aluminum body and low-profile switches.

“Condenser microphones need rock solid power for maximum performance, particularly for low noise and high overload,” said Chris Countryman, president. "Many mixers and audio inputs provide no phantom power, questionable power or only provide it in switchable banks. We developed our Phantom Power Supply to deliver the cleanest power and the most options in the smallest possible size."

The new power supply is expected to be available in Q1, 2020.
