The Astatic 40118 Portable Desk Base is designed to conveniently mount the Astatic 800 and 900 series gooseneck microphones, or any third party miniature gooseneck microphone with a standard 3-pin XLR connection. The portable design enables quick and easy setup on podiums, desk tops and more.
A membrane switch features a status LED and provides Push-To-Talk and Push-To-Mute modes. A rubber shock-resistant base minimizes noise caused by shock and vibration. The 3-pin XLR female input and 7' (2.13m) XLR male output cable make installation quick and easy.
The large soft touch button on this model lets you quickly and easily switch between the four different operational modes. Select your modes by using the DIP switches on the underside of the base. The bottom features CAD's special energy absorbing shock mount compound to reduce vibration noise. There are also two keyholes for permanent mounting.
The rugged four conductor, two shielded seven foot cable is terminated with a professional 3-pin male XLR connector so you are sure to get balanced audio. The LED light makes your life just a little bit easier by illuminating only when the microphone is active, so even in low light situations you know when you're live.
