OVERVIEW

The ultimate vocal performance instrument.

The AE5400 is intended for use in professional applications where remote power is available. It requires 11V to 52V DC phantom power, which may be provided by a mixer or console, or by a separate, in-line source such as the Audio-Technica AT8801 single-channel or CP8506 four-channel phantom power supplies.

Output from the microphone's XLRM-type connector is low impedance (Lo-Z) balanced. The signal appears across Pins 2 and 3; Pin 1 is ground (shield). Output phase is "Pin 2 hot" - positive acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pin 2. To avoid phase cancellation and poor sound, all mic cables must be wired consistently: Pin 1-to-Pin 1, etc.

When using the AE5400 in settings with a stage monitor speaker, the speaker should be located 180 off axis (at rear of the microphone). This placement, in conjunction with the microphone's uniform cardioid pickup pattern, will virtually eliminate the possibility of undesired audio feedback.

An integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The roll-off position reduces the microphone's sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. It also reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically-coupled vibrations. Avoid leaving the microphone in the open sun or in areas where temperatures exceed 110 F (43 C) for extended periods. Extremely high humidity should also be avoided.

FEATURES
  • Large-diaphragm element and true condenser design
  • Superior anti-shock engineering ensures minimal handling noise
  • Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
  • Integral 80Hz HPF switch and 10dB pad
  • Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear
