The WCU250 is an electret condenser, uni-directional, professional microphone perfectly-suited for picking up audio from large groups such as choirs, orchestras, and musical ensembles. Because it can be ceiling-mounted and is compact in size, the WCU250 is very useful in minimizing visual distraction for the performers and the audience alike, and limits intrusion into the working space. The WCU250 utilizes a superior-quality, state-of-the-art transducer element and circuitry. It features a transformerless, direct-coupled design to ensure clear, transparent reproduction of even the most delicate transients at the highest output levels. The WCU250 cable is terminated by a mini-XLR (female). A mini-XLR to standard XLR adapter houses the pre-amplifier. Its specially-tailored wide, flat frequency response provides enhanced and full, rich reproduction of voice and music. The microphone requires an external 9V - 52V DC phantom power supply. The WCU250 comes in an inconspicuous, non-reflective matte black finish.
