Kansas City, MO – December 2008 … Avlex Corporation, the name audio professionals turn to for world-class wireless technology and microphones, proudly introduces the new Superlux PRA-116B shotgun microphone. Featuring exceptional sound quality, a compact, lightweight form factor, and an included camera shoe shockmount adapter, the new PRA-116B is a cost effective solution for any SNG (satellite news gathering), ENG (electronic news gathering), broadcast, video, or film audio application.
Featuring Superlux’ legendary attention to detail, the new PRA-116B is a highly directional electret condenser shotgun microphone that utilizes all-metal construction designed for the rigors of location sound. With its high directivity pickup characteristics and unidirectional polar pattern, this versatile microphone exhibits excellent off-axis rejection. Further, at 7.8 ounces, the microphone is incredibly light and delivers a flat and extended frequency response ranging from 50 Hz – 14 kHz for pristine, natural sounding audio.
With its integrated low frequency roll-off switch set at 80 Hz, 12 dB/octave, the new Superlux PRA-116B makes it easy to adapt the microphone to a wide variety of sound sources—eliminating the chance for low end rumble that can occur from wind noise. Adding still greater versatility, this microphone is powered by a single 1.5V AA alkaline battery. The low power consumption characteristics provide a whopping 800 hours of use.
Of equal significance, the new PRA-116B represents exceptional value for the location sound professional. The PRA-116B is supplied with a mic clip, a camera shoe shockmount adapter, a wind screen, a carrying pouch, and a battery.
Jack Nead, national sales manager for Avlex Corporation, commented on the new Superlux PRA-116B shotgun microphone. “The new PRA-116B is a great sounding, incredibly light and compact microphone that is ideal for the varied applications of today’s location sound professional. With a pressure gradient element and its highly directional pickup characteristics, this microphone does a terrific job of capturing the desired audio source while minimizing surrounding noise and other unwanted sources. Battery life is exceptional and with everything the audio professional needs to integrate the microphone with other production equipment—including the shockmount—I’m absolutely convinced the new PRA-116B makes for a highly competitive package.”
The new Superlux PRA-116B shotgun microphone carries an MSRP of $210.00. The microphone is available and shipping now.
