THE MOST SUPERB
SONIC DESIGN...
FOR THE MOST
ELITE VENUES
THE NEW STANDARD IN LIVE AUDIO
WHY?
Recent advances in the quality and sophistication of professional
live-sound systems have been nothing short of revolutionary.
Tours, clubs, broadcast events, corporate facilities and worship
venues sound better than ever, utilizing better system design
and better components in the audio chain.
That‘s why Audio-Technica has been partnering with industry
professionals on the front line of this revolution – the top touring
companies, award show designers, FOH and monitor
engineers, audio consultants and artists – to learn what it takes
to make the best-sounding, most reliable and consistent microphones for the live-sound industry.
We listened carefully. Then we applied this knowledge to
the creation of the Artist Elite™ line of high-performance microphones. Our ultimate design goal was this: Each model must
extend the performance of a sound system, not limit it.
The result is
THE NEW STANDARD IN LIVE AUDIO

The element assembly is sealed to the back cavity to ensure a consistent
and correctly-tuned resonant chamber, resulting in consistent microphone
sound characteristics.
The upper shock-mount assembly is made from machined stainless
steel, and provides a high-mass resonance-dampening mount between
the element/cavity and handle. Inside the assembly, rubber isolation
bushings help prevent handling noise from reaching the element and
back-cavity assemblies.
