Panzer 500

The centerpiece of your studio gear.

Industry standard.

The IGS Panzer 500 is a 10-slot enclosure for 500-series modules. It will allow you to configure your favourite set of tools for studio or field recording, as well as small home recording setup. It doesn't matter if you're going to fill it up with your favourite microphone preamps, EQs or compressors. You can even add 500-series D/A-A/D converters to your set! In each situation, the Panzer 500 will deliver an efficient power source for your gear, protection and comfort of using either modern or vintage modules!

Extended possibilities.

The Panzer 500 comes with the external power supply unit (PSU). That allows us to minimize the power supply noise leaking into the signal path of your studio gear, but also to use bigger power transformer and exceed the standard API 500-series specification in terms of the output current. The Panzer 500 will provide up to 420 mA per slot, so it can be used even with the most "hungry" tube units, like our LA500 and Tubecore500 compressors.
