Sony C800GPAC Tube Microphone Package Features

  • The Ultimate in Sound Quality: The use of a rigorously selected vacuum tube gives the C-800G microphone its superb sonic quality, particularly at high frequencies and with exceptionally low noise levels. With a wide dynamic range and the 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 microphone is particularly suitable for critical vocal recording in recording studios and film and video postproduction houses, where sound clarity and nuance are essential.
  • High Sensitivity: With a high sensitivity of -28dB/Pa, the C-800G microphone can capture subtle nuances at high frequencies with low noise levels and minimum distortion.
  • Advanced Cooling System: The C-800G is the first microphone in the world to incorporate a built-in thermoelectric cooling system employing a semiconductor device, heat pipe and heat sink, which greatly contribute to the low noise and low distortion characteristics.
  • Noise Elimination Construction: The C-800G microphone incorporates a two-part aluminum body that effectively helps to prevent acoustic vibration from reaching the microphone capsule, resulting in clarity of reproduction.
  • Selectable Directivity: The C-800G provides electronically selectable directivity, either omnidirectional or uni-directional, for maximum flexibility and control over pickup angle.
  • Optional AC Power Supply Unit: The AC-MC800G AC Power Supply Unit is available as an optional accessory to the C-800G microphone.
