Discover the Power of PTM-10:
The Stereo Wireless IEM You Deserve
Retracing how the stand-out Phenyx Pro’s PTM-10 is acclaimed, this blog provides a comprehensive overview of this must-have wireless in-ear monitor. Now let’s explore its immersive monitoring experience and versatility to boss your monitor mix.
In our previous blog, we introduced Phenyx Pro's Mono Monitoring Series and dived into its new addition, the PTM-33 wireless mono IEM system. Today, we focus on the PTM-10, a flagship product that belongs to the Stereo Monitoring Series, well-respected for its advanced stereo monitoring capabilities.
PTM-10: Empower Immersive Stereo Monitoring
The PTM-10 IEM system incorporates the favored stereo mode for most musicians and stereo XLR inputs for superior sound transmission. Stereo audio has two audio signals designed for two separate audio channels, which creates a perception of space. Most headphones also use stereo as a default setup to deliver a more immersive listening experience, as does the PTM-10 in-ear monitoring system. It has Left and Right stereo inputs where you can input different audio sources and transmits the two audio signals separately to the bodypack receiver. You will be able to hear a fuller and more dynamic mix since all the elements from the two channels (Left and Right), instead of one, add more layers and details to the sound. As the PTM-10 recreates a more realistic sounding experience, it also allows you to pinpoint sound from different directions and better perceive sound space on stage. Another advantage of the stereo capability is that you can hear everything at an overall lower listening level. Having two audio signals can heighten the impression of depth and space to make music louder and more powerful.
Besides the ability to render a latency-free, crystal-clear, and 3D-like monitoring experience, this versatile device empowers you to meticulously adjust the volume limit, volume/mix level, EQ setting, and mono/stereo mode, which creates your own audio landscape. With its bodypack receiver, you have multiple customizable functions at your fingertips. In practice, you can freely adjust the limiter for ear and gear protection, switch between the mono and stereo mode depending on the venue, fine-tune the balance of your personal monitor mix by adjusting the left and right channel levels, and adjust the equalizer for your preference.
The remarkable PTM-10 system guarantees a mesmerizing performance to captivate your audience repeatedly, ideal for bands, gigs, stages, studios, and more.
Immersive monitoring experience. Discover the stellar monitoring landscape delivered by PTM-10, meticulously designed to capture even any subtle nuance in professional-grade stereo monitoring mode. With up to 93% sound separation and zero latency, the PTM-10 renders the immersive monitoring experience. The PAD switch on the transmitter enables input gain attenuation of up to 12dB, ensuring smooth and clear sound transmission while effectively preventing overloading and clipping of the preamplifier.
Impressive scalability and stability. Our analog wireless IEM system, PTM-10, offers 89 tunable frequencies within the 500MHz/900MHz UHF band, allowing for the simultaneous use of up to 10 systems (with each 500MHz and 900MHz band version supporting up to 5 transmitters). Effortlessly navigate through frequencies by pressing up and down buttons, and initiate IR sync for a swift, smooth connection. Then, enjoy its steady wireless transmission up to 160ft/50m with the long detachable antenna, free from interference and dropouts.
Professional monitor station. The transmitter integrates multiple professional designs. The front panel provides a 1/4” TRS mixed output with a volume knob for control, facilitating headphone connectivity for the main monitor or auxiliary input for the audio mixer. The rear panel is equipped with stereo XLR/6.35mm TRS inputs available for two signal sources. Thanks to those balanced jacks, the PTM-10 ensures professional connection and noise-free signal transmission. Also, you can conveniently select the desired operating channel, toggle between stereo and mono modes based on venue and preferences, and lock settings to prevent unintentional adjustments.
Functionality meets customization. The versatile bodypack is equipped with a separate power button and volume knob for independent control. Also, it empowers you to master your monitoring with an array of practical functions designed to customize your monitor mix.
* Stereo/mono selection: Utilize the FO function to choose between stereo and mono monitoring modes based on your environment or preferences. For instance, it's suggested to select the mono mode if your devices lack adequate audio channels. (*Note: Stereo mode is only active when both the transmitter and bodypack receivers are set to stereo. Check for the stereo indicators on the LCDs of both devices.)
* Balance adjustment: The BAL/FOC function enables you to modify left/right channel levels within 16 volume settings, enabling more flexibility to forge your monitor mix and wear earbuds into one or both ears. (*Note: The BAL function is available in stereo mode and the FOC function in mono mode.)
* Equalizer control: Fine-tune your monitor mix’s tone and pitch to your preference with the EQ function.
* Limiter (L1) function: Antennuate loud audio signals to safeguard your bodypack and ears from overloading and clipping that may lead to distortion.
* Lock (LO) function: Secure your settings with the lock feature to prevent unintentional adjustments.
