  • Overview


    The U873R UniPoint hypercardioid condenser microphone offers smooth, accurate audio reproduction for handheld and fixed-mount applications. The microphone is equipped with A-T’s UniGuard® technology for unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference. It also features an 80 Hz UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of unwanted low-frequency ambient noise. The microphone’s special internal shock mounting eliminates virtually all handling and cable noise. Designed for distortion-free output even in intense sound fields, interchangeable elements (cardioid, hypercardioid and omnidirectional) permit selection of angle-of-acceptance from 100° to 360°.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. I assume that you mean the U873R. Yes, both microphones will work well for this application, although the AE5100 would pick up and sound much better.
