  • AKG SE-300B Power Supply

    The AKG SE-300B is a power supply and signal output stage for all AKG Blue Line series microphone capsules. The power supply is designed as the back-bone of the Blue Line series, allowing a variety of interchangeable capsules to be used as applications change.

    The SE-300B is a lightweight, rugged unit with an output stage that preserves the integrity of the audio signal while providing a very low noise floor and high output gain. A preattenuation switch provides extra headroom and eliminates distortion caused by overload when reproducing excessively loud signals. A low frequency roll-off switch reduces low frequency noise caused by wind, ambiance, bad grounds etc. The SE-300B is powered with an external 9 to 52 V phantom power source.

    Blue Line Series Power Supply
    The SE-300B is designed for use with all AKG Blue Line series microphone capsules.
    Transformerless Output Stage
    Quiet noise-free signal at high output gain are a result of the transformerless output circuitry Incorporated in the SE-300B.
    Pad Switch
    A preattenuation pad switch enhances head room and prevents overload caused by excessively loud signals.
    Low Frequency Roll-Off
    A low frequency roll-off switch removes low frequency rumble and noise caused by wind, ambiance, etc.

  • AKG CK93 Hypercardioid Microphone Capsule

    From the AKG Blue Line of modular microphone capsules, the AKG CK93 is a hyper-cardioid capsule with signal characteristics that allow the microphone to be used in a variety of applications. The miniature capsule features a flat wide frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz allowing smooth accurate signal reproduction without coloration. The hyper-cardioid polar pattern is most effective in providing a narrow pick up area at the direct sections of the capsule. The result attenuates audio at the off-axis sections of the capsule, minimizing noise and ambiance while reducing feedback caused by nearby monitors and speakers. The CK93 is powered with the AKG SE-300B power supply.

    Flat Frequency Response

AKG SE300 B reviews

Blue Line Series Hypercardioid Microphone Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bullet Proof, & maybe even Stupid Proof! I have owned 2 of these in 2 decades. The first one I sold to a friend who still uses it 20 years on for TV production. I should never have sold it. It's not as transparent (though it's self noise is way better than the Sennheiser K6 offerings) as more modern fare - but you are only going to notice that if you A/B it with a much more modern and expensive mic. And any other mic would have died years ago living on the end of a boom with little more than the supplied foam windshield as protection! It's a go to choice that works really well indoors, and I once recorded a cowboy whistling on horseback from over a 100 yards (a very quiet field and a great field mixer!). There's plenty of detail, and you don't have to baby it. I used a CK93 for feature films, broadcast television and field recording. Why only 4 stars? AKG used to sell an incredible range of accessories that eclipsed even Schoeps. Now they only sell a very limited set, and I'm disappointed by that - but don't let that stop you. If you need a mic that works almost all the time, get this. If you need more, get the shotgun capsule and the omni. Better yet, get a couple of everything and have a great stereo pair you will actually deploy in the field without wondering if it's rugged enough. Oh, and yeah, it sounds really nice.
