Sony C-800G Features
The Ultimate in Sound Quality
The use of a rigorously selected vacuum tube gives the C800G microphone its superb sonic quality, particularly at high frequencies and with exceptionally low noise levels.With a wide dynamic range and the ability to resolve subtle sound detail, the sonic quality is expressed as rich, natural and sensitive with an outstanding response to fast transients.
Critical Vocal Recordings
The C-800G microphone is particularly suitable for critical vocal recording in recording studios and film and video postproduction houses, where sound clarity and nuance are essential.
With a high sensitivity of -28dB/Pa, the C-800G microphone can capture subtle nuances at high frequencies with low noise levels and minimum distortion.
Advanced Cooling System
The C-800G is the first microphone in the world to incorporate a built-in thermoelectric cooling system employing a semiconductor device, heat pipe and heat sink, which greatly contribute to the low noise and low distortion characteristics.
Noise Elimination Construction
The C-800G microphone incorporates a two-part aluminum body that effectively helps to prevent acoustic vibration from reaching the microphone capsule, resulting in clarity of reproduction.
The C-800G provides electronically selectable directivity, either omnidirectional or uni-directional, for maximum flexibility and control over pickup angle.
