Comments about Audio-Technica AT8022 X/Y Stereo Microphone:
This mike is the best sounding mike in my oppinion for general ambiant recording and average home use. Pluss, you can also use it as a pro mike which is pretty cool. The quality of the sound is ausom. It's very clear, the stereo immage is very accurate. It's also nice and wide. The other thing I just love is that it addapts to what ever recorder you use it with. It's not noisy at all just about. If the recorder has a low flore, then that's what you'll get. It's also nice and light. The only thing that conserns me is that the XLR to 8 intch TRS cable seems to be a bit stringgy, flimzy, and weak. Pluss, in some situations, the 2 feet of it aren't enough saddly. You can very easily strech this cable too far and either pull it out, or make it too tight. So, I've baught an extention for it from Radio Shack. I would ask Audio-technica to consider extending the cable, and making a tougher cote. Other then that, this mike is just the best. I love it. If I were to compair it to it's older brothers, I'd say that it's like the AT8025. When I used it on my PC whith it's builtin sound card, it sounded just like the AT8025 sounds on a Mirantz PMD671. That was just way cool. I really love it. I can't weight to try it on anything Sound-devices, and running it on phantom power. That will be just so cool. in conclusion, it's well worth the money, you'll love it. I wish there was a mono mike to compliment it for when you want to record in mono.

Q:What are the operating temperatures for this mircophone?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The problem with cold is that a stiff diaphragm becomes noisy. Freezing the mic will not hurt it. HOWEVER, with freezing you automatically create HUMIDITY. No way around this. If using the mic in a freezing location, it should be expected to be noisier and have frequency response change (due to stiffness of diaphragm) and added noise due to moisture which messes with element capacitance. When the mic is removed from freezing the condition, it should be placed in a dry location – maybe box with desiccant bag.
