The output circuit is transformerless, using a 3-pin XLR connector.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eMICROLINEAR™ ribbon\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eInnovative MicroLinear™ ribbon imprint protects the dual ribbons from lateral flexing and distortion\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eactive ELECTRONICS\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePhantom-powered active electronics provide stable impedance and higher output for maximum compatibility with microphone preamplifiers\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAT8449aSV shock mount\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFor optimum insulation, the AT4080 comes with an AT8449aSV high quality Shock Mount.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e100% quality-controlled\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEach AT4080 is hand-assembled and indivudually inspected 100% to ensure perfect quality control every time.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eSPECIFICATIONS\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003ctable id=\"product-attribute-specs-table\" class=\"c-table c-table--spec js-expandable-table__table\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\" colspan=\"2\" class=\"o-specifications-group-title\"\u003eMicrophones\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eElement\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003eRibbon\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003ePolar Pattern\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003eFigure-of-eight\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eFrequency Response\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e20 - 18,000 Hz\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eOpen Circuit Sensitivity\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e-39 dB (11.2 mV) re 1V at 1 Pa\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eMaximum Input Sound Level\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e150 dB SPL, 1 kHz at 1% T.H.D.\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eNoise\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e22 dB SPL\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eDynamic Range\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e128 dB, 1 kHz at Max SPL\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eSignal-to-Noise Ratio\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e72 dB, 1 kHz at 1 Pa\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003ePhantom Power Requirements\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e48V DC, 3.0 mA typical\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eWeight\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e474g\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eDimensions\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e177.5 mm (6.99\") long, 53.4 mm (2.10\") maximum body diameter\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eOutput Connector\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003eIntegral 3-pin XLRM-type\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eAccessories Included\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003eAT8449aSV shock mount for 5\/8\"-27 threaded stands; microphone dust cover; protective carrying case\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cth scope=\"row\"\u003eAudio-Technica Case Style\u003c\/th\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003eR1\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e"}

AT4080

Bidirectional Active Ribbon Microphone
With the groundbreaking AT4080, Audio-Technica achieves the coveted ribbon microphone sound while solving the problems of fragility and low output that have historically plagued ribbon mics.

FEATURES

AT4080

the warm and natural sound of a classic ribbon microphone

With the groundbreaking AT4080, Audio-Technica achieves the coveted ribbon microphone sound while solving the problems of fragility and low output that have historically plagued ribbon mics. Delivering the warm, smooth sound of a classic ribbon microphone, Audio-Technica's handcrafted AT4080 Active Ribbon Microphone offers a robust build for long-lasting, reliable performance and higher output for maximum compatibility with microphone preamplifiers. Equally at home in recording studios and in live-sound settings, the microphone features Audio-Technica's innovative MicroLinear™ ribbon imprint, which protects the dual ribbons from lateral flexing and distortion. With 18 patents pending, Audio-Technica's innovatibe ribbon transducer advances the evolution of ribbon microphone design. Experience the difference.

  • Smooth, warm and natural high-fidelity sound for professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
  • Groundbreaking Audio-Technica ribbon design with 18 patents pending
  • Proprietary MicroLinear™ ribbon imprint for superior durability
  • Phantom-powered active electronics provide stable impedance and higher output for maximum compatibility with microphone preamplifiers
  • Extremely powerful N50 neodymium magnets for high output level
  • Custom AT8449aSV shock mount provides superior isolation
  • Handmade production – including ribbon corrugation, imprint and assembly - and 100% quality checked upon manufacture

“microlinear™ ribbon”

Folded, embossed and hand-assembled, the MicroLinear ™ ribbon is a patented process. The ribbon of the AT4080 and its junction plates are coated with a thin gold film which prevents corrosion without interfering with the mass or the resonant frequency of the ribbon, while conventional ribbon microphones use a sheet of pure aluminum, susceptible to corrosion by moisture in the air.

“capable of 150dB spl”

Unlike the techniques usually employed by microphone manufacturers, about 80% of the integrated ribbon in the AT4080 is vertically corrugated over the length of the microphone. Only the ends of the ribbon are corrugated horizontally, which provides a more rigid ribbon, thus avoiding the risks of distortion associated with a high sound pressure level (the AT4080 is capable of  150dB SPL, 1kHz 1% THD ).

“active ELECTRONICS”

While the use of phantom power was excluded for previous ribbon microphones, the AT4080 requires 48V phantom power for operation. Phantom power is not used for the bidirectional active ribbon microphone, but for its active electronics, providing a near equivalent level to the output of a condenser microphone. The extremely powerful N50 Neodymium magnets integrated into the AT4080 provide a high output level, and its stable impedance facilitate the integration of this microphone into all types of preamplifiers. The output circuit is transformerless, using a 3-pin XLR connector.

FREE DELIVERY

Harry Green Music World offers FREE door to door delivery to all main distribution points within South Africa for orders above R4000.00. A standard flat rate of R249.00 will be charged for orders below this.

DELIVERY TIME

Normal delivery time is 2-7 working days. We will always try and give you the best possible ETA on your order together with your Waybill Number. It remains your responsibility to give as much special information on the delivery and address as possible. In the events of natural disasters, strikes etc. that delays the process, we will notify you as soon as possible.

Sometimes you may receive your order in more than one delivery if you have purchased several items that consist of different brands. When it comes to guitars that have built in electronics, we always do the necessary checks beforehand (which takes a day) to ensure that you get a good working guitar. Any other items, including amps, speakers, drums etc. is not part of this pre-check system. It may also be required of the client to assemble his own piano with few simple screws. Alternatively we can arrange for a setup at an additional cost. Larger Piano's will need more man power which means we will include setup fees in our quotes always.

We deliver from Monday to Friday during our business hours, excluding public holidays. If you require an emergency delivery please contact us at 013 752 7725 and we will do our very best to accommodate you. This may require an additional delivery fee.
