Hey lsd2525, it's been a bit since you posted abut this, but did you ever figure out the at8505 power modules?  I just got a couple and tried them with u853 mics and didn't get any signal aside from popping when I changed the switch position (while using phantom power).  I have other AT power modules I can compare pin voltage against but thought I'd see if you had the easy answer first.  Thanks.

No, I pretty much threw them in a box and forgot about them. I should probably pull them out and have another go

I am also hoping for some more details on the AT8505.

Saturday, I bought a pair of AT853s on ebay and they come with a pair of AT8505s.  The price was remarkable and I had to pull the trigger.  I noticed that the connectors off the mics are probably mini XLR.  Those power supplies look huge though, just too big really.

Wondering:
1.  Can I ditch the AT8505s for a set of AT8531s?  Anyone familiar with this method?  They are the original AT853 model.
2.  Can I use AT8538s instead?

Fingers crossed they are subcard caps.  Wouldn't care if they were cards though, the set was $55.
With mini XLR they would be a great choice to do a 4.7k mod.
I figure it was a win in some category yet to be seen pending arrival.

I use the AT8531 all the time. All you need is a 2x female XLR>1/8 cable. And yes, if unmolested the connectors off the mics is mini XLR

Thanks for the info.
I figured as much.
Those AT8505s look a lot bigger than their replacement AT8538s.

Another question on the AT853.

If I buy a set with standard XLR connections, can those be modified for the 4.7k mod?
My assumption would be "yes" based on the mini-XLR termination's allowance for modification.

Thanks for any info.

You only need the mod if you are running 2-wire (wired to a 3.5mm plug). Yes, the XLRs can be modded if you want, but a lot of people suggest getting a 2xFXLR > M Stereo 3.5mm adapter and wiring the mod into the adapter. That way you have both setups.
