    Love my AT808G. No TalkBack on mixer? No problem. Workhorse!

    Been using my AT808G for several years now. Was disappointed when I got my new mixer that it didn't have TalkBack. Wasn't a problem.at a gig now and thought I'd share how much I like this thing.

    what is the longest distance this Microphone can be connected without affecting its quality. im looking to install several of these in a boardroom and want to know if over 100ft of cable will have any degradation on the sound. thank you

    Beef

    When using a balanced connection such as an XLR, you may run extremely long distances without loss and well over 100 feet will not be any issue.

    Does this mic require phantom power? Does the base require phantom power (Audio-Technica AT8615RS Desk Stand Mic Base w/Switch)?

    Doug

    Being a dynamic microphone, the AT808G does not require phantom power. The listed base does also not require external power to operate.

    ATUS_Specialist3

    Does the AT808G microphone require phantom power?

    Doug

    No, being a dynamic microphone, the AT808G does not require phantom power.

    Can I order a replacement windscreen

    Darrel

    Thank you for your inquiry. We do not make a windscreen for this microphone. You will need to check with a third party.

    Which mount would fit this microphone to be put onto a podium?

    Peyton

    You may use any XLR Mount to connect the AT808G microphone and include the AT8646QM and the AT8666 http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/windscreens_mounts/6ba32e1537573b0e/index.html http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/windscreens_mounts/8134a50c8caf8a51/index.html Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for additional assistance with this.

    can this microphone replace AT915QMRx mic? none

    sherwin

    Thank you for your inquiry. I'm afraid the AT808G will not be loud enough for you since it is a dynamic mic. A closer fit would be the U857Q.

    what does the switch on the side fothe gooseneck mic AT8570MLa do

    RayJ

    Thank you for your inquiry. The switch on the AT857Qmla is the roll off switch. The straight line means all frequencies are being passed. The bent line indicates that frequencies below 80 Hz are rolled off.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    What bases are compatible AT808G Specifically I am looking for a weighted base that can sit on the lecturn, the mic can be removed when not necessary, but when used it can move on the Lecturn to fit the speaker?

    Qwerty

    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT8666 is a nice base and will do all that you ask for.
