Q:Where can I find an omnidirectional element that will fit this microphone? Can you please direct me to some options? Thank you.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The Omni element for this microphone is the UE-O. You can check on the internet for this or check with an Audio-Technica dealer. You can check on the home page of our web site for a dealer near you.
Q:Our U873R has stopped working. I think there is a problem with the XLR connection. How can I open the mic to check the wiring to the connector?
A:Double check that you have Phantom Power being supplied for this mic. It is a condenser microphone and will require at least 11-52V DC to operate. This microphone also has the ability to have interchangeable elements: try unscrewing the metal grill (where you would speak into the microphone) and ensure that the element is securely fastened.
Q:Is the bottom of the mic an xlr output?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the end of the microphone has an XLR output. The cable is not permanently attached.
Q:Does this unit run on phantom power only? Or can it be run by a single AA battery as well?
A:Phantom power only.
Q:Would either the AE5100 or U837R be effective in choir applications-positioned approx 3-4 feet from group?
A: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.
