Audio-Technica U851RO

Audio-Technica introduced its new U851RO Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone. Company officials say the phantom-powered U851RO offers outstanding speech intelligibility and transparent sound quality for surface-mount applications, including high-quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, conferencing, and other demanding sound pickup situations.

The U851RO's small-diameter UniPoint capsule near the boundary eliminates phase distortion and delivers clear, high-output performance, A-T officials said. The unit is equipped with a PivotPoint rotating output connector, allowing the cable to exit from either the rear or the bottom of the microphone; a UniSteep filter, which provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to improve sound pickup without affecting voice quality; and UniGuard RFI-shielding technology, which offers rejection of radio frequency interference.

Self-contained electronics eliminate the need for an external power module. The mic accepts interchangeable condenser elements in cardioid and hypercardioid polar patterns.

The U851RO features a low-profile design with a low-reflectance black finish for minimum visibility, in addition to a heavy die-cast case and silicon foam bottom pads to help minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. The U851RO's low-profile element provides a uniform omnidirectional polar pattern with a 360-degree acceptance angle.

The U851RO Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone is currently available with a U.S. MSRP of $313.
