Aputure Introduces A. Lyra Digital Lavalier Mic with USB-C/Lightning Connector

Aputure have been killing it this year – from affordable monitors for DSLR and mirrorless shooters like the VS-5 high-res monitor and super-tiny, but powerful pocket LED lights like the AL-M9, the innovative Asian company is taking their audio game to a new level with the introduction of their third microphone – the Aputure A.Lyra. Aputure is billing their newest mic as their “first broadcast grade digital microphone”. The new A.Lyra features premium digital audio converter technology for a more organic and natural analog sound. The A.Lyra also supports 24 bit recording at up to 96 KHz sampling rate, in addition to the more common 44.1KHz and 48 KHz broadcast standard.

The unit is also equipped with a Lighting port, USB-C interface in addition to a 3.5mm headphone jack for real-time monitoring. The A.Lyra supports the iPhone 6, 6S, 6 Plus and the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and basically any iOS device with iOS 9.3.3 and and higher. Monitoring and audio adjustments can be done via various third party apps such as Apogee’s Metarecorder and Tape from Focusrite.
