If there’s one thing that can upset an otherwise flawless performance, it’s poor monitoring. Bringing focus to your (or your band’s) performance is now something that is within grasp on even the tightest of budgets, with the entry-level, but high-quality Shure PSM 300 Stereo Personal Monitor System.
In the Box
Comprised of the SE215 Headphones, P3RA Wireless Stereo Bodypack Receiver, and the P3T Wireless Transmitter, the Shure PSM 300 Stereo Personal Monitor System brings high-quality audio monitoring to the masses.
Why Buy PSM?
PSM personal monitor systems have become so popular because of their mix quality and performance. This new addition to the range follows the same suit, with a combination of elements that provides clarity and precision of sound.
P3T Wireless Transmitter
The hub of the Shure PSM 300 Stereo Personal Monitor System, the P3T Wireless Transmitter is supplied with a rack mount and hardware kit, ¼ wave antenna, and a power supply. This unit offers single-channel stereo input, or two-channels for a mono set-up, which can then be sent up to 90 meters/300-feet to the receiver, so your performance never has to be restricted.
24-bit digital audio is ensured with Shure’s patented Audio Reference Companding technology keeping noise levels extremely low and artifacts at bay, whilst ensuring you don’t have to worry about a drop in monitoring signal.
At the rear of the P3T Wireless Transmitter, ¼” (6.3mm) TRS balanced inputs and loop outputs, along with the line/aux level switch give you all the connectivity options you should need for a variety of audio sources, or additional P3Ts.
This tough little half-rack also makes set-up and control easy, with front panel controls that include a one-touch sync button, a single input level knob, one-button Group and one-button Channel buttons, and an easy-to-read, high-contrast LCD screen with left/right audio output meters.
P3RA Wireless Stereo Bodypack Receiver
Designed for use with the Shure PSM 300 Stereo Personal Monitor System, P3RA is a wireless stereo bodypack receiver. Paired with the P3T Wireless Transmitter, the receiver offers 24-bit digital audio processing and a wireless signal that you can depend on, even at long range. Also harnessing the Audio Reference Companding, audio is clear and unsullied by unwanted noise.
This receiver excels at being easy to use, even for the absolute beginner. Just use the Scan button (nicely hidden behind a panel) to automatically search across a wide tuning bandwidth and allocate the cleanest available frequency.
This powerful receiver also allows you to alter your mix of two channels on the fly, with its built-in MixMode technology. You also have a high-contrast LCD menu on the receiver to access EQ and volume limiting.
Tough and compact, the P3RA is seriously reliable and easy to clip onto belts or straps. It also offers up to 7 hours of use from just two AA batteries, or you can even purchase a rechargeable battery (SB900), which charges within the unit itself. To get you started two AA batteries are included, in addition to a zippered bag.
SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones
Even the headphones included with the Shure PSM 300 Stereo Personal Monitor System are of the utmost quality, with the SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones. With a warm, detailed sound and 90% of background noise blocked out, these are the perfect headphones for this application.
Comfort is also important when choosing a pair of headphones that you need to wear throughout long performances. The Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones have you covered here also, with over the cable configuration keeping the wire out of the way and a selection of foam and silicone sleeves in different sizes, to suit all ears. They are also built to last; incorporating a durable, Kevlar reinforced cable.
