Northridge, CA (July 2, 2010)–AKG has debuted its line of 99er microphones, with nine different products in the line that provide nine different applications for installed sound.
The new line–which consists of the CGN99, CHM99, CBL99, CK99 and the DGN99–incorporates components from other AKG products, such as the capsule of the C542 BL boundary layer microphone and the acoustical components of the discrete gooseneck range. All of the microphones are equipped with RF shielding to meet the demands of electromagnetic compatibility in everyday installations. The family consists of nine microphones for conferencing, paging, surveillance, onstage use and recording.
“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. “The mix of superior acoustics, RF shielding and extraordinarily rugged mechanical design makes the 99ers easy to install and absolutely 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. Also included in the 99er range is the CHM99 hanging microphone on a 10 m twist-free cable. Available in either black or white, the CHM99 is targeted for teleconferencing applications, theaters or as a choir microphone in a house of worship.
Also included in the 99er range is the CBL99, a compact boundary layer microphone using technology from high-end studio mics for use as a low-profile desktop microphone in conference situations as well as choir or instrument applications.
Rounding out the 99ers is the CK99, a small lavalier microphone with a cardioid pickup pattern, and the DGN99, a microphone designed for 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.
