The low-profile Audio Technica AT8666RSP quick-mount desk stand base with user-programmable switch offers three settings: press on/press off, momentary on, and momentary off. The sturdy metal base is equipped with a 3-pin XLRF-type in, and an XLRM-type output connector. It is designed to fit any gooseneck microphone with an XLRM-type output.
The Audio Technica AT8666RSC is identical to the AT8666RSP with the exception that it has the added feature of an external contact closure enabling control of the switching via 5 pin XLR connection from a remote device. The AT8666RSC also requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation. The electronics in the desk stand take up to 30 seconds to stabilize after power is applied; during this start-up period, some sonic disturbances may be heard upon switching if the system is "live." The touch-sensitive on/off switch can be configured for touch-on/ touch-off, momentary on ("press to talk"), or momentary off ("press to mute"). Slide the switch marked "SW. FUNCTION" (located on the bottom of the unit) to the appropriate mode. The indicator LED and external contact closure follow the operation of the touch switch, when in the local mode. For applications that require the microphone to remain active or always "on", regardless of the touch switch setting, a "Local/Remote/LED Remote" control function is provided.
When the switch marked "CONTROL" (located on the bottom of the desk stand) is in the "Local" position, the touch switch controls the microphone's audio output, LED status and contact closure internally.
When the "CONTROL" switch is in the "Remote" position, the microphone's audio output remains active or "on" all the time. The touch switch controls only the LED and contact closure.
When the "CONTROL" switch is in the "LED remote" position, it allows remote control of the LED, for accurate depiction of the microphone's live status. The LED will remain "on" when driven logic high or open, and "off" when driven logic low or connected to ground. The microphone's audio output remains active or "on" all the time, and the contact closure follows the configuration of the touch switch.
