Apex188  Stereo USB Condenser

The Apex188 is a true stereo USB condenser microphone designed to direct connect to any USB 2.0 equipped computer or laptop. The two separate cardioid capsules used in the Apex188 are fixed at a 90-degree angle to each other, allowing a perfect X/Y axis stereo image from a single mic position.

Cardioid capsules are used in the Apex188 because cardioid polar patterns provide excellent noise rejection from the sides and back of the capsule, minimizing interference from off axis sources. The capsules are offset by 90 degrees, ensuring they deliver maximum separation and an extremely natural stereo imaging from one microphone source with a minimum of left to right phase interference.

The Apex188 offers the added convenience of an internal 24bit / 96kHz digital conversion direct to the USB2.0 output, making it the ideal microphone for software based recording solutions or Podcasting.

The Apex188 operates on any USB equipped PC or laptop running WindowsXP or later and Mac OS-X operating systems.
