Description

Lewitt's LCT 550 is the first and only large-diaphragm studio microphone ever to achieve 0 dB (A) self-noise. This makes it possible to capture even extremely weak signals with great precision and detail. The Austrian-developed LCT 550 sets new standards in terms of more than just self-noise; a dynamic range of 140 dB, three pre-attenuation levels (0 dB, -6 dB and -12 dB), a clipping history and an auto-attenuation mode. Thanks to highly precise calibration of the capsule and the electronics, the manufacturing tolerances have been minimized, this means that any two microphones from this series, set identically, will always form a matched pair at +/- 0 dB!

Features:

  • A perfect match – highly precise calibration of capsule and electronics means that any two microphones from this series will always form a matched pair at +/- 0 dB
  • Precise transient response thanks to the 3-micron-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, 1-inch Mylar diaphragm
  • Extraordinary sensitive: capture even extremely weak signals with great precision and detail
  • Cardioid polar pattern for effective rear sound rejection
  • 0 dB (A) self-noise from electronics and circuitry
  • 140 dB dynamic range Max. SPL of 155 dB (A)
  • Immune to electromagnetic interference thanks to transformerless preamplifier circuitry
  • Illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling in dark environments
  • Noiseless pushbuttons for attenuation and low-cut selection
  • Automatic Attenuation and Clipping History mode
  • Rugged zinc die-cast body
  • Internal shock mount for maximum reduction of structure borne noise
  • Corrosion-resistant gold-plated 3-pin XLR output connector
