Audio-Technica has introduced its new ES931 six-inch condenser gooseneck microphone, available in multiple configurations to meet the varied needs of system integrators and their end users.
Broadly, there are three classifications under the ES931 umbrella: the ES931PM gooseneck microphone with standard AT8534 wall/ceiling plate power module; ATND931 Dante model with ATND8734 Dante wall/ceiling plate power module; and ES931/MIC basic model (microphone only).
Each of these iterations is available in one of three distinct polar patterns (cardioid, hypercardioid and MicroLine), with two color options (black and white), for a total of 18 different product models.
The AT8534 wall/ceiling plate power module allows the ES931PM to be installed in a standard, single-gang electrical box. The ATND8734 wall/ceiling plate power module with Dante network output permits installation of the ATND931 in a standard, 2-gang electrical box with direct connection to the Ethernet network via a CAT5e or better PoE cable. Intended for boardrooms, educational and government settings, teleconferencing, houses of worship and other installed applications, each ES931 iteration provides consistent sound quality in multi-microphone installations with other Audio-Technica ES microphones.
The ES931 offers off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback. Audio-Technica’s UniGuard RFI-shielding technology enables rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI) while the UniSteep 80 Hz low-cut filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation to minimize pickup of undesired ambient noise. The six-inch gooseneck presents a low profile design with a low-reflectance black or white finish for minimum visibility. The rugged small gooseneck retains virtually no “memory,” permitting quick and easy adjustment into the desired shape and position.
All configurations of the Audio-Technica ES931 six-inch gooseneck microphones are currently available.
