The Electro-Voice RE200 is a cardioid, true condenser instrument microphone designed for the exacting acoustic reproduction of choirs, strings, percussion and brass instruments in live performance and sound recordings. The RE200 was designed for use in professional remote recordings, sound reinforcement systems, sound studios and motion picture/TV scoring stages.
The RE200's frequency response has a continuous presence rise to enhance the sound quality. The excellent transient response and smooth frequency response is gently lifted above 1,000 Hz, lending an open, transparent detail to the recorded sound.
The RE200's transducer is a true, external biased condenser element based on the RE2000 transducer design. (Most studio recording microphones are true condensers because they have greater sensitivity and stability than an electret element). The diaphragm is ultra thin, gold-laminated, environ-mentally stabilized and ultra low in mass. The electrode is a precision-cut single piece, ceramic disc layered with gold. The transducer is biased by an internal dc-to-dc converter to ensure that its sensitivity and performance is not dependent on phantom voltage. The RE200 transducer is cradled in an AcoustiDYM shock-mount system for mechanical isolation. The RE200's electronics are designed to operate from 12v DC to 52v DC phantom power.
The RE200 is small, light and rugged, making it ideal for a variety of applications without being obtrusive.
