    • Take control of your microphone — remotely

The Perception flagship mic
In 2005 AKG has launched the completely first Perception models — a completely new series of microphones showing mythical AKG Sound & Quality at an outstanding price level. The Perception820 Tube delivers genuine tube sound quality, raising the bar in its class of value-packed tube microphones. This microphone delivers genuine tube sound quality thanks to the dual one-inch large diaphragm capsule and the sophisticated ECC 83 dual-triode circuitry. You can't beat a real-tube design for classic sound and smoothness. Put the Perception 820 Tube on a vocalist and you'll know what you've been missing; put it on an instrument and you'll love the natural sound you get.

Take control of your microphone — remotely
The Perception 820 Tube includes an elegant remote control unit that lets you select from nine different pickup patterns; it also controls the selectable bass-cut filter and the attenuation pad. Moreover, a ground lift switch prevents unwanted hum if necessary. This kind of versatility makes the Perception 820 Tube an ideal addition to your microphone locker.
