TRITON AUDIO Phantom Power Blocker Connector

 Ean: 0764804148503   |    PartNumber: PHANTOM BLOCKER   |   Asin: B01HYH0AZQ

TRITON AUDIO PHANTOM BLOCKER Overview

Triton Audio's Phantom Power Blocker Connector safeguards your equipment from phantom power while allowing signal to pass freely in both directions. Connect it to the cable which plugs into your gear to ensure that you won't be blowing up your beloved Dynaco pre.

Phantom power can be applied to either the male or the female side of Phantom Blocker's XLR connector and will not reach the opposing XLR connector, protecting devices like computer interfaces that are connected to mixers with phantom power engaged. Phantom Power Blocker also prevents shorts when connecting unbalanced TRS cables to XLRs.
