20" (50cm) Hypercardioid Gooseneck Microphone with Mounting Flange

With its new Discreet Acoustics Compact Series (DAC), AKG offers a cost efficient alternative for installations where a lean budget has top priority. This is why the DAC Series goosenecks come with only one flexible section, a rigid connection between gooseneck and capsule, and a 3-pin standard XLR connector for joining the gooseneck to the cable.

The Discreet Acoustics Compact Series offers a user-friendly system that fulfils its basic functions just perfectly. While an excellent price-performance ratio was achieved by focusing on essential features, no compromise was made with regard to the sound of the capsules.

Each of these capsules provides the outstanding, "legendary" AKG sound that enjoys worldwide popularity and accounts for the company's success. Acoustic excellence made in Austria by AKG!

You can choose between goosenecks 30 or 50 cm (12 or 20 in.) long, with either a cardioid or hypercardioid polar pattern, and a cardioid hanging module. For the tough requirements of everyday usage, the DAC Series features rugged all-metal parts and is designed as a true plug-and-play solution. Quick setup and takedown as well as permanent installations all are possible.

The new Discreet Acoustics Compact Series is the unique alternative for applications where budget, not modularity, is a major consideration. Moreover, the Compact Series can be combined with the Modular Series, so that modules with additional features can be used as well wherever they are actually needed.

The hypercardioid polar pattern with its narrow 95 pickup angle is suited best for situations where noise typically occurs from all sides (particularly in worship centers), where people talk into the microphone from a greater distance, or where several talkers are grouped side by side.

Two different lengths are available. The flexible joint ensures optimum alignment of the gooseneck to any talker position. Several options are available for installation, i.e., stand, tabletop installation, and lockable.
