Common name: CAD Audio M177
Using the latest computer modelling tools has resulted in a microphone that features the best of old world and new world technology at affordable cost. The M177 features a single pattern version of the original Equitek E-300 capsule. An externally biased capsule, it has a gold sputtered 1.1 diaphragm. The M177 has a high speed, low noise operational amplifier head amp, coupled with a new discrete high efficiency power supply circuit. This results in incredibly low noise, low distortion and fast transient response. The M177 can be used with 24 to 48V phantom supplies.
