Palmer PAN 01 pro – Deluxe version of the PAN 01 – Product Review by Production Partner

PAN 01 pro is, as the name implies, a slightly improved version of the proven PAN 01, that we already tested in our 3/2013 issue. The passive DI-box is equipped with a higher quality and shielded transformer, resulting in reduced distortion especially at low frequencies.

Compared to the standard version, the housing is of even stronger build and the switches are also more solid. As an additional feature, the link output can also be used as a second input to mix a stereo signal in the DI-box to mono. Thanks to the fixed preattenuation of 20 dB, the PAN 01 pro is also well suited for high-impedance sources. For € 92, the small model from Palmer thus offers everything you need, and at the best quality.
