Lewitt LCT 840 overview

  • 1Description

The LCT 840 Reference Class Tube Microphone from Lewitt is a premium class externally polarized microphone for vocals and miking instruments in the studio or on stage. Equipped with a precision-engineered 1.0" capsule, the LCT 840 delivers a classic vintage sound. This multi-purpose microphone offers versatility, letting you choose between five different polar patterns - cardioid, omnidirectional, figure 8, wide cardioid, and supercardioid. This unit has a low self-noise of 9 dB and rejection of off-axis sounds. The microphone's PSU power supply unit offers three levels of attenuation and three switchable high-pass filters, indicators and push buttons for noiseless handling. The microphone and the PSU unit are connected via an included 26' 11-pin XLR cable.

The LCT 840 is equipped with a plexiglass inspection window on the front of the body that fully exposes the illuminated tube. The inside window surface is coated with a highly conductive, yet transparent film preventing electromagnetic interference.

1.0" externally biased, gold-layered low-mass diaphragms combined with a dual triode tube ensures accurate transient response while providing smooth, warm and airy tube sound
Five consistent directional characteristics offer flexibility - cardioid, omnidirectional, figure 8, broad cardioid, and supercardioid
Dynamic range of 130 dB-A (Tube) and low self-noise of 9 dB-A for realism and distortion-free sonic depth
3-position switchable pre-attenuation pad (0, 10, and 20 dB) for handling high sound pressure levels and 3-position high-pass filter
Illuminated user interface and jog dials for easy handling even in dark environments
Noiseless push buttons for quick and easy attenuation and HPF selection
Unique features like clipping history and automatic attenuation provide error-free studio recording and ease of use
Solid die-cast metal body with an oversized tube inspection window specially coated for maximum protection against electromagnetic interference
Extra-large hexagonal ruthenium-galvanized steel mesh grille provides an open acoustic environment and prevents unwanted internal reflections
Corrosion-resistant gold-plated 11-pin XLR output connector
