Audio-Technica Releases Limited Edition AT2020

Audio-Technica releases limited edition AT2020V and AT2020USB+V cardioid condenser microphone with reflective silver finish.

Audio-Technica has released two limited-edition iterations of the acclaimed AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone featuring a reflective silver finish: the AT2020V (XLR model) and the AT2020USB+V (USB model). The striking silver finish reflects the creative force of its user, making these mics ideal for YouTubers, livestreamers and other content creators.

These rugged side-address condensers are equipped with low-mass diaphragms custom- engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. The mics’ cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source. All models in the AT2020 mic line – the price/performance standard in side-address studio condenser microphone technology – offer a wide dynamic range and handle high SPLs with ease. Both of the limited-edition V models come with AT8458a shock mounts to attenuate any noise, shock or vibration transmitted through a mic stand, boom, or mount.

The AT2020V is ideal for vocal pickup in home-studio applications and features an analogue XLR output for easy connection to a digital converter or mixer. The AT2020USB+V, perfect for podcasting, streaming, home studio recording and voiceover use, delivering the power to present a creative vision with the convenience of plug-and-play USB operation. The AT2020USB+V features a built-in high-output headphone amplifier with volume control that allows direct monitoring of the microphone signal with no delay. It also offers a mix control that blends microphone and pre-recorded audio. The microphone’s A/D converter (16-bit, 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate) ensures extremely articulate sound reproduction. A 3.1 m USB cable included.

The limited edition AT2020V and AT2020USB+V are currently available at £115/€129 for the AT2020V and £169/€189 for the AT2020USB+V.
