Xvive Audio has announced the new P1, a compact phantom power supply for condenser microphones and other audio equipment requiring 48 or 12 volts to operate.
The P1 runs on an internal lithium battery and a full charge is stated to run a high-current condenser microphone for up to 40 hours. The company states that it takes between 2.5 to 3 hours to charge using a 5-volt USB power source. A row of LEDs on the front face of the power supply indicates how much charge is left.
The P1 has a lightweight metal housing that weighs far less than 1 pound ( 0.32 lbs). The onboard battery is intended to eliminate the possibility of ground loops in the signal. And, the unit can operate while connected to power.
The new P1 phantom power supply is available now from Xvive dealers and online retailers worldwide. Retail price is $49.99 USD.
