–18 to 57°C (0

to 135°F)

Storage

Temperature

–29 to 74°C

(–20 to 165°F)

Relative

0 to 95%

Power Requirements

11–52 V DC[4], 2.0 mA

Weight

[1] 1 Pa=94 dB SPL

[2] THD of microphone preamplifier

when applied input signal level

is equivalent to cartridge output at

specified SPL

[3] S/N ratio is the difference between

94 dB SPL and equivalent

SPL of self noise, A-weighted

[4] All specifications measured with

a 48 Vdc phantom power supply.

The microphone operates at lower

voltages, but with slightly decreased

headroom and sensitivity.
