Product Overview The sE Rupert Neve RNR1 - The World's First HF Active Ribbon Mic

For many decades ribbon mics have been used by engineers for their extremely natural sounding reproduction of source material.
The nature of their performance differs greatly from condenser mics, which by comparison sound very 'up front' and lack the harmonic depth of a good ribbon.

Even at the high end of the market, the customary roll-off of almost all the top end frequencies has always been a major drawback.
The frustration with all ribbons is - depending on the model - little or no performance past 7-10KHz, which is why condenser mics dominate the recording market.

The traditional appeal of the condenser then has been the assumption of consistent frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHz.
Traditionally engineers using ribbons, however expensive, have had to accept their significant limitations or have had to augment the recording with a condenser mic to capture the high frequency absent from the ribbon output.
The sE RNR1 is the world's first ribbon microphone that offers the same consistency of frequency response; from 20Hz right up to 25kHz whilst retaining the fullness and warmth you've come to love about ribbon mics.

Such compromises have meant that ribbons have never been very widely accepted or used as a first choice for recording
