AKG this week introduced the comprehensive line of 99er microphones, designed for a broad swath of the fixed installation market. With nine different products in the, AKG officials say the 99ers include a solution for nearly any installed sound application, including conferencing, paging, surveillance, on-stage use and recording.
AKG says the new line, which consists of the CGN99, CHM99, CBL99, CK99 and the DGN99, incorporates components from classic AKG products, such as the capsule of the C542 BL boundary layer microphone and the acoustical components of the discreet gooseneck range. All of the microphones are equipped with RF shielding to meet the demands of electromagnetic compatibility in everyday installations.
"The 99er line is a unique range of high-class but affordable and easily specified microphones for the installed sound market," said Mario Siokola, product manager for the 99ers, in a statenebt. "The mix of superior acoustics, RF shielding and extraordinarily rugged mechanical design makes the 99ers easy to install and reliable in use."
The condenser gooseneck range includes the CGN99 C/S, CGN99 C/L, CGN99 H/S and CGN99 H/L, which provide both cardioid or hypercardioid polar patterns and can come on a short or long gooseneck stand. The range is ideal for conferencing systems, lecterns, podiums, and altars.
Also included in the 99er range is the CHM99 hanging microphone on a 10-meter twist-free cable. Available in either black or white, the CHM99 is an ideal microphone for teleconferencing applications, theaters, or as a choir microphone in a house of worship.
The CBL99 is a compact boundary layer microphone using technology from high-end studio mics, according to the company. It has a high sensitivity and a wide frequency range, and is optimized for use as a low-profile desktop microphone in conference situations, as well as in choir or instrument applications.
Rounding out the 99ers are the CK99, a small lavalier microphone with a cardiod pickup pattern that makes it a feedback resistant-robust solution for speeches and house of worship applications, and the DGN99; a rugged, versatile microphone designed for all paging purposes, such as in a shopping mall or for transportation applications. The DGN99 is also available on a desk stand with a PTT switch as the DST 99 S.
