CAD (Conneaut Audio Devices) Professional Microphones was initially formed in 1988 as the Pro Audio division of the company to design and manufacture microphones for the recording and live sound markets, segments not served by Astatic. Initially, CAD introduced a revolutionary servo circuit console and breakthrough processing products, then went on to develop a series of innovative and cost-effective high performance studio microphones. These included the highly acclaimed E100, E200 and E300 Equitek Series mics that literally defined the project studio revolution of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
More recent CAD developments include the updated versions of the affordable, high quality CAD drum microphone packs; the Stage4, Stage7, and Touring7 Premium. CAD Audio has also added the new U9 MiniMic to its already versatile line of USB microphones, two new studio headphones the MH310 studio monitor headphone and the DH100 drummer isolation headphones, and the E100S large diaphragm condenser mic, the quietest LDC mic available on the market today, an evolution of the company’s groundbreaking Equitek Series studio microphone.
