Sanken Introduces New CO-100K Microphone

World's first 100 kHz recording microphone (September 22, 2005)

Sanken today introduced the new CO-100K super wide-range omni-directional microphone, the world's first 100kHz microphone designed specifically for professional hi-resolution recording. Applications include the recording of music with a wide dynamic range, especially acoustic instruments, as well as capturing a new world of detail in the recording of sound effects. It's compact size and unobtrusive appearance also makes it ideal for orchestral and other live recording environments.

Designed by Sanken in conjunction with NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories, the CO-100K is the ultimate microphone for extended dynamic range and heightened response. Because of the way in which analog to digital converters operate, the CO-100K takes advantage of the heightened frequency response of the new hi-resolution digital audio formats. The absence of brick wall filters in the conversion process eliminates certain noticeable artifacts and anomalies commonly generated within the standard audio bandwidth.

The benefits of working with a superb high-resolution omni-directional microphone are numerous. The CO-100K features very fast transients with an extremely smooth response curve, resulting in great clarity and unprecedented transparency. With the ability to capture sounds in the ultra-high frequency range, the microphone also produces very rich results in the low and mid-range of the audible frequency range.

See and hear the entire range of Sanken microphones designed for the studio, broadcast, and location recording for film and television in Booth #429.
