The sE Electronics RNT Tube Microphone - sE and RND's new offering
By Front End Audio on Feb 3rd 2018
Continuing their unique collaborative relationship, Rupert Neve Designs and sE Electronics have announced the newest edition to their RN Microphone line, the RNT. The sE Electronics RNT Tube Microphone is a High-End Class A Multi-Pattern Tube microphone, that is designed to “bring the larger-than- life sounds of classic studio microphones into the modern age with greater depth and clarity than ever before.”
Straight from sE Electronics:
“The sE Electronics RNT Tube Microphone utilizes fully discrete, Class-A electronics throughout both of its active stages. The first stage is tube-based, with a hand-selected, low-noise ECC82 tube within the microphone chassis, and implementing a custom-built Rupert Neve Designs output transformer. The second stage is within the floor box – which also controls polar pattern, filter and gain switching – and is built around the same custom op-amps used in Rupert Neve Designs’ flagship 5088 recording console, known worldwide for its unrivaled transparency and headroom. This second stage is also coupled with a second custom-made Rupert Neve Designs output transformer. “
With the success of the RNR1 Active Ribbon Microphone, and the RN17 Small Diaphragm Condenser, the RNT looks to be an exciting new addition to the microphone world.
