Audio-Technica Launches Affordable USB Studio Condenser Mic at Winter NAMM


Leeds 01-17-2008 Audio-Technica is launching the AT2020 USB, an affordable, large diaphragm, studio condenser microphone featuring USB connectivity, at the Winter NAMM show, in Anaheim CA.

Designed for direct to computer-based recording, the AT2020 USB cardioid condenser microphone is ideal for use with all popular desktop recording software. Equipped with a USB digital output, the Mac and Windows compatible AT2020 USB offers studio quality articulation and intelligibility in recording acoustic signal sources with desktop recording systems. With low self-noise and an extended frequency response, Audio-Technica’s state-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure that the AT2020 USB offers the company’s renowned standards of performance, build quality and reliability.

Based on the acclaimed AT2020, featuring a custom-engineered low-mass diaphragm, the AT2020 USB is a rugged side-address condenser microphone. It represents exceptional value for money, in offering the performance advantages of a high-quality studio microphone with a USB interface.

The AT2020 USB has a fixed cardioid polar pattern for isolation of the intended signal source from unwanted ambient noise. The microphone’s response provides both high resolution signal accuracy and a smooth, natural sound. Phantom power for the cardioid capsule is drawn from the USB. The microphone is supplied with a tripod desk stand, stand mount, USB cable and soft protective carrying pouch.

The AT2020 USB will be available in the UK from March 2008 with a RRP of £99.95 inc. VAT.
