Avlex Superlux Pra-116B
Avlex Introduces Superlux Pra-116B Shotgun Microphone.
Avlex Corporation introduces the new Superlux PRA-116B shotgun microphone. Featuring a compact, lightweight form factor, and an included camera shoe shockmount adapter, Avlew says that the new PRA-116B is a cost effective solution for any SNG (satellite news gathering), ENG (electronic news gathering), broadcast, video, or film audio application.
The new PRA-116B is a highly directional electret condenser shotgun microphone that utilizes all-metal construction designed for the rigors of location sound. We're told that with its high directivity pickup characteristics and unidirectional polar pattern, this versatile microphone exhibits excellent off-axis rejection. Further, at 7.8 ounces, the microphone is light and delivers a flat and extended frequency response ranging from 50 Hz — 14 kHz.
With its integrated low frequency roll-off switch set at 80 Hz, 12 dB/octave, the new Superlux PRA-116B is designed to adapt to a wide ariety of sound sources—eliminating the chance for low end rumble that can occur from wind noise. This microphone is powered by a single 1.5V AA alkaline battery. The low power consumption characteristics provide 800 hours of use.
The PRA-116B is supplied with a mic clip, a camera shoe shockmount adapter, a wind screen, a carrying pouch, and a battery.
The new Superlux PRA-116B shotgun microphone carries an MSRP of $210.00. The microphone is available and shipping now.

There are some speakers with an 8-inch woofer that can manage the low end quite decently without setting you back more than 700€ (about $800). We haven't tested all of them, but you probably have had (or have) the chance to listen to most of them.
