Audio-Technica announced the introduction of the AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone at the 117th AES Convention. Featuring an all-new proprietary design, the AT2020 is a rugged side-address condenser microphone offering the performance advantages of a high-quality studio microphone. Ideal for project/home studio applications, the AT2020 features a custom-engineered low-mass diaphragm, providing extended frequency response plus the ability to handle extremely high SPLs.
Designed to provide versatility, the AT2020 has a fixed cardioid polar pattern to allow isolation of the desired sound source. The mic features a flat, extended frequency response (20 -- 20,000 Hz), high SPL handling capability (144 dB), and a wide dynamic range (124 dB). Every aspect of the AT2020 has been tailored for a smooth, natural sound while ensuring maximum accuracy.
The AT2020 comes standard with a pivoting, threaded stand mount, which attaches securely for easy and precise placement. The microphone requires 48V phantom power that may be provided by a mixer/console or a separate, in-line source such as the Audio-Technica AT8801 single-channel and CP8506 four-channel phantom power supplies. Output from the AT2020 is via a low-impedance, 3-pin XLRM-type connector. In addition, the AT2020 measures 6.38" long, has a maximum body diameter of 2.05", weighs 12.1 oz., and comes with a soft protective carryingpouch.
The AT2020 will be available in December 2004 with an MSRP of $169.00.
