A brand new Audio Technica AT845RW white condenser boundary microphone, box is a little tatty as it’s been in our stores for a few years, microphone is brand new and unused
The AT845R is a wide-range condenser microphone with an omnidirectional polar pattern. It is designed for unobtrusive table, ceiling or panel-mounted applications for high-quality sound reinforcement, teleconferencing, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications. The AT847R is a similar microphone, with a unidirectional polar pattern. Positioning a properly designed miniature unidirectional microphone centrally on a large, flat, unobstructed surface yields several distinct advantages. The directivity factor is greatly increased over a comparable omnidirectional microphone, thus promoting enhanced gain before feedback and further suppressing ambient noise. Sensitivity is increased for improved signal-to-noise ratio. Phase distortion due to reflected sound energy from the boundary itself is eliminated. Both microphones require 9V to 52V DC phantom power for operation. The microphones are enclosed in a heavy-duty die-cast case and protected by two layers of heavy perforated steel. The low-profile housing has a low-reflectance black finish. The microphones are also available in white, as AT845RW and AT847RW. Isolators are included with each microphone for applications where mechanical isolation from the mounting surface is required.
Installation and Operation
Output is low impedance balanced. The balanced signal appears across Pins 2 and 3, while the ground (shield) connection is Pin 1. Output is phased so that positive acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pin 2 in accordance with industry convention. To mount these microphones in a ceiling or table top without the isolators, a 13⁄16″ diameter hole is required. To mount these microphones with the isolators, a 15⁄16″ hole is required. The isolators can be placed on either side of the hole for mechanical isolation from the mounting surface. The Audio-Technica round mark ( ) on the AT847 bezel indicates the “front” of the microphone. While a modern fixed-charge condenser microphone is not unduly sensitive to the environment, temperature extremes can be harmful. Exposure to high temperature can result in gradual and permanent reduction of the output level. Avoid leaving the microphone in the open sun or in areas where temperatures exceed 110° F (43° C) for long periods of time. Extremely high humidity should also be avoided.
