As previously mentioned, the RV85 comes with an integrated 6 metres of cable. This terminates at the connector end with a micro XLR connector. Simply connect this to the included micro XLR to standard XLR adaptor and you’re good go to go. As with most condenser microphones, the RV85 hanging condenser microphone requires phantom power. (Ordinarily, this will be provided from your mixer or audio interface). (Should you require a microphone that can be battery powered, consider the RV4 as an alternative). Also included is a steel hanger which makes positioning the microphone a little easier. Permanent installation or temporary – the choice is yours.
