CAD Audio originally took shape as the Astatic Corporation in 1931, founded by C.M. Chorpening and F.H. Woodworth, two ham radio operators who needed a static-free microphone for their transmitters. They worked with local engineers to develop the company’s first crystal radio microphone, the model D-104.

Having overcome the problem of static – hence the company name “Astatic” – and improving the quality of radio transmitter microphones in general, Chorpening and Woodworth went on the incorporate in 1933 and develop a line of innovative crystal mics, phonograph pickups and recording heads.

Now known as Astatic Commercial Audio Products, the company has evolved into a successful manufacturer of commercial microphones for a wide variety of industrial applications. Astatic mics can be found in restaurants, airports, churches, schools, and boardrooms worldwide.

Today, Astatic has been re-branded as CAD Audio to combine the strength of their new technologies and expand their already unmatched offering of microphones for different applications while simplifying and streamlining sales, distribution and marketing efforts for the coming years.
