Golden Age Premier GA-800G High End Tube Microphone

The Golden Age Premier GA-800G is a high end tube microphone with a classic semiconductor active cooling system, designed around the original C800G microphone. 

The classic C800G is the only tube microphone in the world equipped with a semiconductor active cooling system that results in a higher signal-to-noise ratio compared to most other tube microphones. It has a very high-quality modern sound performance.

Even though its based on the original, the circuit board has been upgraded to a ROGERS ceramic circuit board that has superior insulation parameters and offers a more stable performance. The coupling and bypass capacitors has also been upgraded, resulting in a deeper and more exact low frequency performance and a more delicate and transparent high frequency reproduction.

The classic semiconductor active cooling and external cooling system from the C800G is also used in the GA-800G. This is to ensure that the GA-800G has the highest possible signal-to-noise ratio. The tube (a 6AU6) is mounted in an aluminium casing, with the semiconductor cooling chip being attached to the bottom of the case. The temperature of the tube in the GA-800G is the effectively kept down when the GA-800G is in it´s working state, the heat generated by the tube is actively dissipated. The heat that the tube generates is transferred to the reverse side of the semiconductor and transferred to the effective outer aluminium alloy heat sink at the rear of the microphone. This heat sink will then dissipate the heat from semiconductor cooling chip to the air surrounding the GA-800G.
