Soundman A3 Adapter

Power AdapterFor devices without an integrated power supply, adapter A3 is also used to power the microphone.

For best results, use thumann when using the A3 adapter on devices with line input.

When using the Mic input, the sensitivity increases. This is advantageous when recording quiet speech, acoustic instruments, etc.

The adapter A3 is inserted between the microphone and the device. After the recording has finished, you should disconnect the adapter from the microphone, otherwise the battery of the adapter will be consumed.

  • Allows operation of OKM microphones at the LINE input of a recorder
  • To improve the recording quality
  • For reducing distortion at high volume of the sound source to be recorded
  • For sound and level control

Solid preamplifier and feeding adapter

David D. 365, 25.02.2013
The Soundman A3 adapter serves as a link between the Tascam DR-100 MKII recorder and the Soundman OKM II studio microphone. Unfortunately, the Tascam does not offer a 12V sound supply at the jack microphone input, which is why this adapter was essential to continue using my OKM microphones.
The device looks a bit self-made, however, very high-quality components were used. The plug is, for example, gold-plated and the socket also snaps securely in place. The adapter is supplied with two Ladysize batteries (one as replacement). The battery charge can be checked by means of a switch.
A switch can be used to activate a -20dB attenuation, as well as a LowCut. This, in my opinion, is too high. It should be good and glad 250-300Hz, which I for the recording of language definitely too high. Therefore, this is not for me to use. A footfall filter around the 80Hz would have made in my opinion more sense. The switches lock well and an accidental changeover in operation I think is very unlikely.
The other values ??are fantastic. The device offers an excellent noise response, which is superimposed to inaudibility by the ambient atmosphere even at high input levels. Not to forget that the line input of the tascams worked well here. The recordings are crystal clear and rounded! I have also tested the adapter with a Sony ECM DS70p, which is also an electret condenser microphone, but unfortunately is dependent on phantom power and is therefore not compatible with the 12V Tonadersuppisung.

Conclusion: Due to the good pre-amplification and the fantastic noise behavior I consider the price appropriate. Only the LowCut filter and the product design could be reworked.

Fits well for my microphone!

12.04.2014
Even if the small part twice as much as my external sound card has tasted, I do not regret the purchase. So I can finally connect my Electret condenser microphone to the sound card, which I bought for it! The joke was that the microphone over Chinch got no phantom power. When you switch this adapter in between, the microphone gets again current and can develop through the sound card the optimal sound quality!
From the previous recordings I am thrilled. You do not notice the adapter.
