Mic arm riser combination
The mic arm riser combination hides the mic wire and improves its appearance. The mic wire is hidden for most of the length of the arm,
yet is easy to attach and is removable. The base provides an invisible
vertical wire channel through the riser, which is prewired to an XLR
female imbedded at the top (set-screw removable), and three feet of
pigtail extends from the base for the user to wire as needed. This
makes attaching a mic cord to the outside of the riser unnecessary. The
riser offers an overall height of 15 inches. This permits the riser to
be installed immediately behind most low-profile VGAs and most
near-field loudspeakers. The factory-installed riser mic wire exits
down through the countertop or through a side channel at the bottom, as
needed by the user.

new personnel safety standards. This product can be configured to
broadcast one or multiple signals.

Special edition stereo set
The nickel finish on this microphone resembles the silver outer housing of the original C 414 EB, which was produced between 1976 and
1986. Under the retro exterior, however, this computer-matched stereo
set consists of two C 414B-ULS, which is a large-diaphragm,
multi-pattern condenser mic. The mic uses a revamped version of the CK
