Quality Is A Permanent Task

LCT 240


With the LCT 240 2/3-inch diaphragm condenser microphone, LEWITT introduces a high precision multi-purpose tool that sets new benchmarks in terms of performance and ease of use. Designed for use in live performances as well as (home) studio recordings, the LCT 240 will leave a lasting impression with users expecting accurate and unaltered tracking of speech, vocals and instruments.

The LCT 240 is equipped with a high-performance back-electret capsule delivering a warm, distortion-free and natural sound. The very low self-noise and a wide dynamic range ensures a detailed sound reproduction in any setting. Like all models of the Authentica series, the LCT 240 also features a transformerless circuitry which makes it immune to electromagnetic interference.

Technological improvements such as automatic attenuation and clipping history, as well as an illuminated user interface and pushbuttons that allow for noiseless switching, make this sturdy all-rounder a highly convenient and reliable choice.


Features and Applications


  2/3-inch small-diaphragm capsule with ultra-thin externally biased, gold-layered low mass diaphragm for powerful and neutral sound reproduction
  Neutral frequency response for authentic sound onstage or in the studio
  Cardioid polar pattern for effective isolation of the main sound source
  Low self-noise and a total dynamic range of 130 dB provides an outstanding acoustic presence and powerful yet authentic sound
  3-position switchable pre-attenuation pad (0 dB, 10 dB, and 20 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels and 3-position high-pass filter
  Illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling even in dark environments
  Noiseless pushbuttons for quick and easy attenuation and high-pass filter selection
  Clipping history, automatic attenuation and key-lock provide error-free recording and unparalleled ease of use
  Rugged black all-metal construction for durable performance onstage and in the studio
  Extra-large hexagonal ruthenium-galvanized steel mesh grille provides an open acoustic environment and prevents unwanted internal reflections
  Immune to electromagnetic interference thanks to transformerless preamplifier circuitry
  Corrosion-resistant gold-plated 3-pin XLR output connector
  Comes in a cardboard box with foam layers; includes DTP 40 Mts shock mount, LCT 40 Wx windshield and DTP 40 Lb artificial leather bag
