Hi I would like to use this product in Australia. I know it has a battery option but what do I need to use on Australian power? Can I get this accessory from B&H?Thanks very much
Asked by: Anonymous
If your mic preamp has Phantom Power, the county's voltage (110 or 220V AC) does not matter. Phantom Pwr. is the same (typically 48VDC)

Could this be used as a conference microphone on a table top, if you secured it to some sort of base? How far away will it pick up voices with clarity?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not recommended. It is designed for on-talent use within 3-10 inches of the subject's mouth.A boundary type microphone is a better way to go: The Audio-Technica U841A is an omnidirectional boundary microphone designed for highly intelligible sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and conferencing in surface-mount applications. The microphone's omnidirectional polar pattern is capable of accurately reproducing audio at 360 degrees. The surface mounted U841A features a polarized condenser element that reproduces audio with crisp detail and pristine fidelity. UniGuard RFI-shielding protects against radio frequency interference. The microphone is powered via phantom or 1.5V AA battery power, an external in-line phantom power supply is included. The U841A is an excellent choice for capturing conferences, meetings, broadcasts, performances, ambiance and more.

question

What is the approximate time a AA alkaline Duracell can power the mic? Is there an advantage/disadvantage to using battery vs. phantom (other than battery drain). I'm trying to avoid the phantom's extra draw from a Tascam field recorder's lithium-ions.
Asked by: Anonymous
Battery drain on the device supplying the phantom power would be the main reason to consider using AA battery in the lavalier. With the AT899 you should easily get 12 hours continuous use with AA battery power, longer if the mic is disconnected when not in use. Phantom power generally decreases record time in a battery powered recorder by 50% or more in some cases.

How would you compare this AT899 lav with what I've heard to be the "industry standard"- the Sony ECM-77b lav mic? (for an indoor, talking head recording) Thanks so much for answering it really helps!
Asked by: X
Both the AT899 and ECM-77B are omnidirectional condenser style lavalier mics that operate using either phantom or battery power. The AT899 has a frequency response range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz and dynamic range of 108 dB when used with phantom power or 86 dB when powered by a battery, while the ECM-77B, which has a frequency response range of 40 Hz to 20 kHz and 90 dB. Both mics have a signal-to-noise ratio of 64 dB. The ECM-77B has a maximum input level of 120 dB while the AT899 can handle up 138 dB when used with phantom power or 116 dB when powered by a battery. The AT899 also has a switch on the power module that allows you to select between a flat response or low roll-off at 80 Hz using the built-in high-pass filter. Both are very popular microphones that are 44capable of delivering high-quality audio recordings.
