      Comments about Audio-Technica CP8201 In-Line Transformer:

      A must-have for anyone that must take a quality Lo-Z mic to a regular 1/4" Hi-Z input on a mixer or other pre-amp. If you carry your own gear to allow your small amp to be mic'd at venues, one of these should be in the back "just in case" without question. Being able to turn down the gain at the mixer end (getting 40-45% of the signal headroom back on the knob) ends up being a quieter/clearer signal as well. Too inexpensive not to have one.

            Converts a low ohm mic (in my case 300 ohms) for use where a high ohm mic is expected (in my case a Casio keyboard) works perfect. Also converts XLR to guitar style 1/4" input for less than the cost of a conversion cable.

              This is a great heavy duty plug at a great price. I've paid almost triple this for a lower quality plug before that just failed on me, glad I found this one. Feels solid when plugged in, I use it from the output of an API mic pre into my ECHO soundcard and it works great!

                It perfectly Matched my low impedance mics to a high impedance mixer/amp. No noise, no loss of highs or lows. I am very satisfied, I will purchase more.

                  Ever go to a church or a gig and a P.A. head go out or one of your Low-Z inputs quits and you have a High-Z next to it and one of these adapters.? Its OK if you have a replacement head, unless, yours was for Low Impediance mic cords and the spare is 1/4" inputs (High Impediance). These inline transformers(adapters) can save the day. They fit great and in emergencies, they can help save the show. I've been there and done that!!, and its not fun!! This is a quick fix item that works. Its worth its weight in gold if you have even a Low-Z go out on your head, many have a High-Z input right beside them. This adapter might be the difference in a good show and a bad show. Cheap security for a musician or sound man who wants to be ready for anything.

                      Used for a wedding gig. I Mic'd my classical guitar with an SM57 and a Fishman Loudbox mini... Sounded superb.

                        I use this lite weight, self contained, simple plug in unit to plug my low imp. headset mic (or any other low imp. mic) into older (60's tech.)boards that have only hi imp.(1/4")inputs... (local Eagles,Elks lodges & taverns; Yep, they're still out there... :)
                        Works like a charm... Used 'em for decades.
                        I also have the opposite transformer, to plug different types of older recording mics into modern boards.
