The ultimate in sound quality
The use of a rigorously selected vacuum tube gives this microphone its superb sonic quality, particularly at high frequencies and with exceptionally low noise levels. With a wide dynamic range and ability to resolve subtle sound detail, the sonic quality is expressed as rich, natural and sensitive with an outstanding response to fast transients.
Critical vocal recordings
The C-800G is particularly suitable for critical vocal recording in recording studios and film and video post-production houses, where sound clarity and nuance are essential.
Noise elimination construction
The design incorporates a two-part body construction that effectively helps prevent acoustic vibration from reaching the microphone capsule, resulting in clarity of reproduction.
Advanced cooling system
The first microphone in the world to incorporate a built-in thermo-electric cooling system employing a semiconductor device, heat pipe and heat sink, which greatly contribute to the low noise and low distortion characteristics.
High sensitivity
With a high sensitivity of -32dB/Pa, this microphone can capture subtle nuances at high frequencies with low noise levels and minimum distortion.
Selectable directivity
The C-800G provides electronically selectable directivity, either omnidirectional or uni-directional, for maximum flexibility and control over pickup angle.
AC power supply unit
The AC-MC800G power supply unit is supplied as part of the C-800GPAC1 condenser microphone package.
