The Astatic 905R is a line-cardioid, quick-mount, miniature gooseneck condenser microphone designed for speech and vocal pick-up. The line-cardioid polar pattern (LocusTM technology) is engineered to attenuate unwanted sources outside of the +/- 45 degree acceptance angle while effectively "zeroing-in" on the desired speaker. Astatic's LocusTM technology provides a significant improvement over other line-cardioid microphones due to diaphragm size and low-noise electronics. The 905R is appropriate for applications such as boardrooms, courtrooms, house of worship and anywhere a gooseneck microphone with optimal distance pick-up is needed. LocusTM technology allows the installer to use the 905R in place of longer miniature-gooseneck microphones without sacrificing performance. It is the perfect solution for the user who prefers not to be distracted by an obtrusive transducer.
