What are the advantages of Avisoft-UltraSoundGate 116Unb over other USB ultrasound microphones?

  • The class-compliant USB audio device can be used with either the full-featured Avisoft-RECORDER USG/USGH software on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 or other third-party recording software that can handle class-compliant USB audio devices.
  • The included CM16/CMPA microphone provides lower noise (better signal-to-noise ratio) at higher ultrasonic frequencies, a flatter on-axis frequency response and will fully recover after getting wet (electret microphones found in other USB microphones may be damaged permanently after exposure to moisture).
  • It’s XLR-5 microphone input socket allows to use up to over 200 meter long extension cables and supports also other analog (electret) ultrasound microphones.
  • Supports a number of different sample rates ranging from 48 to 384 kHz, which can help work around potential compatibility issues on different third-party software applications.
  • Rugged design with a large and reliable USB type B connector
  • Despite of its low power requirements (100 mA drawn from the USB port), the USG 116Unb base unit can still be combined with all UltraSoundGate accessories such as the 1/4″ Mic Power Module or the Charge Amplifier.
