The C480 B Combo is a combination of C480 B pre-amp and the CK61 ULS capsule. It offers excellent audio quality and maximum flexibility. The electronic circuitry of the C480 B comes with a transformerless output stage and assures completely linear transfer characteristics across the entire frequency range, while achieving self-noise figures close to the theoretical minimum.

The CK61 capsule is characterized by a ruler-flat frequency response and an unmatchable consistent cardioid polar pattern. It is the ideal choice for critical recording and live-sound applications where consistent suppression of off-axis sound is an important requirement. The CK61 ULS is widely used in broadcast and recording studios as well as on stages worldwide.
