  • Overview

    Featuring a flush, tabletop-mount design, the AT8657/LED microphone socket allows for the easy use of any 21 mm gooseneck or button-style boundary microphone with a 3-pin XLRM-type output – including our ES945 and ES947 – in a variety of presentation environments.

    The socket’s logic out capability permits control of remote devices from a programmable capacitance switch, so users can easily trigger an external device (e.g., a camera or light) with the touch of a button – an extremely useful feature in conference and boardroom installations. The socket also features a lock switch that automatically locks the microphone in place upon insertion, holding it securely until switch is manually released by user.

    Additionally, an integral Red/Green LED ring is controllable from a logic-enabled device and is powered by the microphone’s phantom power, eliminating the need for an additional power source.

    Each socket comes with a pair of rubber isolation rings and a metal retainer ring (for use with gooseneck mics only) to dampen surface vibrations.

    I am buying this product again

    By 

    from Seoul, Korea

    Pros

    • Very nice clean look. Light is not too bright.

    Cons

    • Depth of the mount.

    Best Uses

      I really like this product and soon hope to be buyng them for another project. The only issue that I really had was that the table for the project had not been selected when I chose this microphone base with the gooseneck microphone. The table was too thick so it was dificult to mount. Other than that is was great. System has been up and running for almost two years with no issues.
