  • Low self-noise and transformerless preamplifier circuitry

Cartridge Type
Permanently Biased Condenser

Frequency Response
20­ to 20,000 Hz

Directional Polar Pattern

Output Impedance
150 ohms (actual)

Attenuation Switch
0 dB or 15 dB attenuation

Phantom Power
48 Vdc +/- 4 Vdc (IEC­268­15/DIN 45 596), positive pins 2 and 3

Current Drain
5.2 mA typical at 48 Vdc

Common Mode Rejection
>50 dB, 20 Hz to 20 kHz

Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on output pin 2 relative to pin 3

24 mm (0.950 in.) diameter
162 mm (6.375 in.) long
195 grams (6.9 oz.)

Sensitivity (typical, at 1000 Hz; 1 Pa = 94 dB SPL)
-41 dBV/Pa

Self­noise (typical, equivalent SPL; A-weighted (IEC 651))
19 dB

Maximum SPL@ 1000 Hz
5000 ohms load (Attenuator on): 150 (165 dB)
2500 ohms load (Attenuator on): 144 (159) dB
1000 ohms load (Attenuator on): 139 (154 dB)

Signal to Noise Ratio**
75 dB

*20 Hz to 20 kHz; THD < 1%. THD of the microphone preamplifier when applied input signal is equivalent to the cartridge output at specified SPL.
**S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self-noise A-weighted.
