Audio-Technica’s acclaimed 50 Series is an elite range of premium recording microphone currently comprising AT5040 vocal and AT5045 instrument mics. The company has now added the AT5047 a premier studio microphone featuring the same capsule as the AT5040 but with a transformer-coupled output and optimised electronics. It is equally at home capturing instruments or vocals.
Boasting an exceptionally wide dynamic range – the widest among all Audio-Technica microphones – the AT5047 captures the full, expressive character of a sound source, no matter how loud or how soft. And since it is equipped with a transformer-coupled output, it maintains a constant load output impedance, even when capturing sources at extreme SPL, resulting in a stable relationship between the mic and a mic preamp or console input.
Just like the AT5040, the AT5047 features four rectangular two-micron-thick diaphragms, which function together to provide a combined surface area twice that of a standard one-inch circular diaphragm. Discrete components have been carefully selected and optimised for maximum performance and compatibility with a wide array of microphone preamps and console inputs. Advanced internal shock mounting decouples the capsule from the microphone body, and the included advanced-design AT8480 shock mount provides superior isolation.
With an elegant, durable housing of aluminum and brass, each AT5047 is hand-assembled and inspected for 100% quality control. A custom hard-shell carrying case with die-cut foam compartments offers protection during storage and transport.
AT5047 will retail in Australia for $4,499. Audio-Technica is distributed by Technical Audio Group, 43-53 Bridge Road, STANMORE NSW 2048. Ph. (02) 9519 0900. email@example.com www.audio-technica.com.au
