  • Q & A

    Will this unit works with the AT8666RPS mic stand switch with AT808G microphone?

    Ariel Jos

    Yes, the AT8801 will provide the necessary 11-52v of power for the AT8666RSP to operate.


    Will the at8801 singlw channel work with a at2020 or is there a different power supply that will work.


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes the AT8801 power supply will work with the AT2020 mic.


    How can I buy an 8801? I see a cart but no way to add anything.


    That product is not available through the online website yet. You may contact your state's Audio-Technica Representative for assistance. Additionally, you may contact your local Authorized Audio Technica Dealer for pricing and availability.


    I was planning to use the AT8801 with my AT2035 microphone but noticed that the residual output noise on the AT8801 is specified as -71dbv while the signal to noise ratio on the AT2035 is 82db. Will the AT8801 significantly degrade the noise performance of the AT2035? Thanks.


    The AT8801 will not degrade audio quality for the AT2035.


    If "phsntom power" means "auxiliary power", why invent a different name? Does the AT2020 have two leads, one to the power source, the other to the audio unit?


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Does this phantom power supply isolate the 48v from its output? Hello, I have an old microphone preamplifier that can be damaged if it is connected to a phantom power supply. thanks.


    Yes it does.


    can this device power the at4060 microphone


    Thank you for your inquiry. No it will not. The AT4060 has its own rack mounted power supply.


    AC adaptor I need to replace the AC adaptor for my 8801 (US version). Is it available separately? If not, what are its specs?
