Sanken CO-100K Condenser Microphone

An omni-directional ultra-wide range condenser microphone with a frequency response from 20Hz right up to 100kHz ! frequency response.

The CO-100K omni-directional condenser microphone is the world's first 100kHz mic designed for rofessional recording, notjust for measurement purposes. Designed by Sanken in conjunction with NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories, the CO-100K is the ultimate microphone for full spectrum high-frequency response in recording for SACD, DVD-A, and future hi-resolution formats. This mic will be of special interest to those working in high sample rate PCM or DSD recordings, and for sound effects.

  • 20Hz to 100kHz Microphone
  • For Professional Recording
  • Unique Diaphragm Design

100kHz microphones do exist in the field of acoustic measurement but the Sanken CO-100k is the first such device for use in theprofessional recording world. Designed in conjunction with the NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories, this microphone is Sanken's solution for those exceptional engineers who want to record a complete sonic picture from 20Hz to 100kHz.

Sanken has already carried out a number of test recordings with the CO-100k using specialist hardware that can preserve such a wide bandwidth. These tests amply demonstrate the exceptional signal-to-noise ratio and the stunning frequency response of this microphone, and we are confident that it will gain a very warm welcome from those in the fields of classical and acoustic instrument recording, and from specialists in sound effect work.

Within the conventional "audible frequency" band of 20Hz to 20kHz the performance is exemplary, with rich lows and a tasteful mid range - clearly different. But the CO-100k also gives us the opportunity to experience musical sounds far beyond that somewhat arbitrary upper frequency limit. This is a new step, a new adventure into the realms of musical detail and nuance that we have never been able to reach before.

Note : Within the frequency band 20kHz to 100kHz sound energy decreases dramatically and severely. Thus, to record this band accurately, the CO-100k has a peaking response from 20kHz to 70kHz on axis. Physics dictates that though the microphone is an omni design it will have increased directivity at higher frequencies.

Includes: Microphones, and vinyl case.
