SNAMM06: AKG Launch Third Mic In Perception Range



AKG Acoustics’ Perception 100 and 200 microphones have built a strong following among musicians and engineers and AKG have now introduced the Perception 400 – a multi-pattern, large-diaphragm condenser microphonewhich they say is ideal for musicians and audio engineers for both studio and live sound applications.
The new Perception 400 encompasses selectable cardioid, omni and figure-eight pickup patterns with switchable 10dB pad, switchable bass cut filter, shock mount and metal case. It features two separate back-to-back, one-inch diameter vibrating surface capsules with gold-sputtered foil diaphragms. AKG tell us that the technologically-advanced, externally biased ‘true’ condenser capsules deliver greater performance consistency, especially in high temperature and humidity conditions. The Perception 400 features a full 20 – 20,000 Hz response, high 145 dB max SPL capability at less than 0.5% THD.
Mike Torlone, Market Development Manager for AKG Acoustics U.S. had this to say, “Perception 400’s genuine large-diaphragm capsules deliver the classic warm, yet present sound that has been the performance hallmark of AKG studio microphones for nearly 60 years. The addition of the Perception 400 means that we now have a ‘good, better and best’ option within the spectacular Perception product line. Each microphone in the Perception line provides unique features and performance, and addresses a segment of the market not previously targeted by AKG.�
The Perception 400 boasts a durable, modern precision-tooled zinc/aluminum alloy metal chassis with a stainless steel, dent-resistant grille screen to protect the capsules. Like the Perception 200, it comes in a metal-framed ‘sound tools’ carrying case with a screw-on, spider-type shock mount.
