Is the AT831b a mono mic?
« on: October 29, 2023, 06:36:14 PM »
Hello,

I'd like to confirm whether the AT831b is a monaural (mono) microphone. Additionally, I'd appreciate knowing if the microphone listed on the website [URL: https://soundprofessionals.com/product/AT831-SP/] is identical to the AT831b.

Best regards,

Pieter

Yes it's mono.

SP removes the factory termination. From the factory I'm almost positive that they are terminated in a mini XLR connector for use with the AT8521 power supply box.

Thank you for informing me.

I'm looking to purchase a mono mic at SP, either the AT831 or AT853, with the intention of plugging it directly to my Marantz PMD620 using the 5v PIP. Unfortunately, I currently don't have enough $$$ for a stereo pair.

My plan is to edit my mono recordings later in post-production to create a pseudo-stereo effect. With this in mind, should I order the mono version or the dual mono version?

Best regards,

Pieter

I would look around for a used pair of AT853s, which pop up in the yard sale here pretty frequently and which will make you much happier. What's your price limit?
