The CAD E60 is versatile, cost effective condenser microphone designed for vocal and instrument capturing in recording applications. The E60 incorporates an op-amp output stage, much like the output stage found in the Equitek series. Unlike the Equitek, the E60 is powered by +48V phantom power and does not require a battery to compensate for the power requirements of the op-amp. The cardioid capsule features a 4-position frequency contour switch with Flat, 40Hz, 80Hz and 120Hz settings. A 10dB Pad switch maximizes gain when capturing audio at close proximity. The E60's sonic performance and frequency response make it a solid, cost-effective solution for home and project studios.
