AKG MICROPHONES - Modular - Multipurpose

This collection of AKG modular condenser microphones includes the Blue Line series, based on the well known C451 system, with higher sensitivity, lower self-noise, and better phase and frequency response linearity. The ULS, Ultra Linear Series, however, offers four 'reference class' small condenser microphones and is intended primarily for studio and broadcast applications in which 'state-of-the-art performance is mandated'.

Blue Line series

With a bayonet coupling system compared to the sometimes awkward fine screw thread of the C451 series, the Blue Line system components can be 'assembled accurately and quickly even in the toughest field conditions'. Although primarily designed for studio and broadcast applications, thanks to the 'roadworthy and light-weight design' the microphones are also 'often found in heavy-duty use on stages worldwide'. All modules are coloured dark grey.

SE300 B - Pre-amplifier and Powering Module

This microphone body module is used with different condenser microphone heads to provide a wide variety of polar patterns. It has a switched bass roll-off/attenuator with three positions: Flat, 75Hz and 10db attenuation.

Output connector: 3-pin, male XLR. Phantom power: 9-52V DC. Dimensions: 146 x 19(length x diameter) mm. Weight: 25g without cable.

Included accessories: SA40 stand adapter.

CK91 Microphone Capsule - Cardioid

The CK91's flat frequency response and consistent cardioid polar pattern with good front-to-back rejection make it the 'ideal choice for critical live and studio broadcast applications where consistent suppression of off-axis sound is required'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa. Dimensions: 51 x 19(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W90 windshield.

C391 B

The CK91 capsule may be ordered together with an SE300 pre-amplifier as the C391 B microphone.

CK92 Microphone Capsule - Omnidirectional

This offers an 'exceptionally neutral presentation of a source in its ambient sound field, providing consistent results regardless of the distance between microphone and source'. Due to its non directional pickup, it is free of proximity effect and 'perfect for close-up miking of instruments, as well as for ambience recording'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa. Dimensions: 51 x 19(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W90 windshield.

CK93 Microphone Capsule - Hyper-cardioid

With a 'smooth and well-balanced frequency response' and a 'consistent hyper-cardioid polar pattern', this provides greater attenuation of off-axis sound and more direct sound. Thus it is the 'ideal choice for critical live and studio broadcast applications where consistent suppression of off-axis sound is required'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa. Dimensions: 59 x 19(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W90 windshield.

CK94 Microphone Capsule - Figure of Eight

This has a 'smooth and well-balanced frequency response' and it's figure-of-eight polar pattern picks up sound arriving from opposite directions and suppresses off-axis sounds. Thus it is the 'perfect tool for applications where sound sources face each other, as in broadcast-interview and roundtable situations'. It is also 'perfect as a side microphone in M/S stereo technique'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa. Dimensions: 59 x 19(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W90 windshield.

CK98 Microphone Capsule - Short Shotgun

Combining 'high sensitivity and controlled directivity', this offers 'excellent reach thanks to a very tight polar pattern and exceptionally low self noise'. Small in size and low in weight (80g approximately) the CK98 is 'ideal for boom applications'. The 'smooth, wide-band frequency response' makes it a 'superb choice for edge-of-stage and ceiling placement' in theatres.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 20mV/Pa. Dimensions: 260 x 19(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W98 windshield.

ULS Series

With the available cardioid, hyper-cardioid, omnidirectional, and highly directional shotgun capsules, the Ultra Linear Series offer an 'incredible flexible solution for speech, vocal, instrumental and ambient recordings'.

'Thanks to the ultra linear pre amp' the capsules have a 'vastly improved noise floor', permitting self noise performance 'in the range of 9 to 11dB-A'. Maximum sound pressure levels in the range of 144dB can be attained with 'no greater than 0.5% distortion', giving the capsules a 'new level of overall performance'. All modules are finished in matt black.

C480 B ULS Preamplifier and powering module

This microphone body module is used with different condenser microphone heads to provide a wide variety of polar patterns. It has an electronically balanced output specially designed to drive 'difficult loads like excessively long cables' without harming the signal quality. The C480 B offers a two-step, high-pass filter and two gain stages of either -10dB or +6dB.

Output connector: 3-pin, male XLR. Phantom power: 48V DC. Dimensions: 173 x 21(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: SA40 stand adapter.

CK61 ULS Microphone Capsule - Cardioid

With a 'ruler-flat' frequency response and an unmatchable consistent cardioid polar pattern', AKG tell us that this is 'the ideal choice for critical recording and live-sound applications where consistent suppression of off-axis sound is an important requirement'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 20mV/Pa. Dimensions: 27 x 21(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W32 windshield.

CK62 ULS Microphone Capsule - Omnidirectional

With a 'ruler-flat' frequency response and an omni directional polar pattern, this apparently is 'one of the most neutral small-diaphragm capsules ever' and a 'perfect choice for demanding applications such as classical-music recording'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 20mV/Pa. Dimensions: 27 x 21(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W32 windshield.

CK63 ULS Microphone Capsule - Hyper-cardioid

As well as a 'ruler-flat frequency response' this one has a 'consistent hyper-cardioid polar pattern' and provides 'unmatched' channel separation, 'exceptional' off-axis rejection and 'high gain before feedback'.

Response: 20Hz-20kHz. Sensitivity: 20mV/Pa. Dimensions: 27 x 21(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W32 windshield.

CK69 ULS Microphone Capsule - Shotgun

A unique two part shotgun capsule, which allows the microphone to be used for a wide range of applications. The full length tube will provide a versatile shotgun microphone for medium distance location work, or if half of the interference tube is removed the same microphone becomes a short shotgun for front of stage or ENG use.

Response: 20Hz-18kHz. Sensitivity: 27mV/Pa. Dimensions: 176 or 317 x 21(length x diameter) mm.

Included accessories: W32 windshield.
