Astatic 40118 overview

  • 1Description

The Astatic 40118 Portable Desk Base is designed to conveniently mount the Astatic 800 and 900 series gooseneck microphones, or any third party miniature gooseneck microphone with a standard 3-pin XLR connection. The portable design enables quick and easy setup on podiums, desk tops and more.

A membrane switch features a status LED and provides Push-To-Talk and Push-To-Mute modes. A rubber shock-resistant base minimizes noise caused by shock and vibration. The 3-pin XLR female input and 7' (2.13m) XLR male output cable make installation quick and easy.

Programmable Switch
The large soft touch button on this model lets you quickly and easily switch between the four different operational modes. Select your modes by using the DIP switches on the underside of the base.
Balanced Audio
The rugged four conductor, two shielded seven foot cable is terminated with a professional 3-pin male XLR connector so you are sure to get balanced audio.
LED Indicator
The LED light makes your life just a little bit easier by illuminating only when the microphone is active, so even in low light situations you know when you're live.
Versatile Operation
The 40118 Desk Mount is an ideal choice for the Astatic 800 and 900 series gooseneck mics, as well as third party microphones with 3-pin XLR type connections.
Shock Mounted
The bottom features CAD's special energy absorbing shock mount compound to reduce vibration noise. There are also two keyholes for permanent mounting.

    Astatic 40118 reviews

    40118 Portable Desk Base for Gooseneck Microphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desk base for microphone works great I'm a minister at a church. We have a powered mixer we were using with 2 wireless mics for sound reinforcement. I wanted to ditch the wireless mics for regular mics at the pulpit, altar, etc. I ordered three of these bases, along with 3 Audio Technica mics (PRO-49Q Quick-mount Gooseneck Microphone) and 3 - 50' cables - and they really work great. I found we can even use the wireless mics at the same time if needed. The bases are nice and heavy considering they are quite small and fully adjustable with the dip switches on the bottom. I'm a bit of a customizer and can't think of anything I would change with these. Or the mics for that matter they work great too.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not suitable for regular setup/strike Our conference center purchased 24 of these bases for use in our meeting spaces; events are set up, take place and then are taken down. The XLR cabling connections break frequently inside the plugs, causing mic outages and popping noise through the sound system. While suitable for permanent mounting, the thin wiring inside the cables does not stand up to even medium-frequency usage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the price! Installed these in a corporate board room enviroment. Quality is better than expected compared to more expensive models. Works well. nice setup options, power up on, power up off, push to talk, push to mute. Phantom power is required.
