The Voice Grabber Super Cardoid Boundary Microphone is perfect for applications such as recording meetings. Choirs, orchestras, theatrical performances, interviews, courtroom proceedings, & conferences.

The Voice Grabber microphone is compatible with the Martel DM246 Court room recording system, Marantz PMD661 recorders and any other brand of digital recorder that uses the 3 pin XLR cannon connector. 

The Voice Grabber has the same great pickup as the regular Conference microphones, but has an XLR plug for use with Marantz professional digital recorders. These are also used with the Federal Courtroom recorder DM-246. This version uses phantom power to power the microphone. Please make sure your recorder has phantom power available.

Definition: What is Phantom Power? "The digital recorder sends out voltage to the microphone, giving it the ability to pick up voice at a greater range. On the digital recorder there will often be a switch that says 48V on/off. If your recorder has this switch, then you can buy phantom powered microphones that do not use batteries. The main advantage is that you never need to change batteries on these types of microphones."

    This is the best conference microphone ever

    Posted by Molly S. on 30th Nov 2018

    I needed 2 microphones for my Marantz recorder. I love that these microphone does need batteries. I switch the 48v phantom power switch on the Marantz recorder and the microphones came alive. Wow, the pickup range is great.
