CAD Audio M179
Externally Biased Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone

OUR PART #  M179


Similar to CAD Audio's M177 except with an adjustable Polar Pattern, the M179 features a dual sided, externally biased capsule with a gold sputtered 1.1" diaphragm.  The M179 has a high speed, low noise operational amplifier head amp, coupled with a new discrete high efficiency power supply circuit.  This results in incredibly low noise, low distortion and fast transient response.  The M179 will even work with 24-volt phantom supplies.  The M179 also features a non-capacitive 20 dB pad switch and an 80 Hz high-pass filter.  Includes MZM5 shockmount.
