sE Electronics have teamed up with Rupert Neve to offer the RNR1, an extremely high-performance active ribbon microphone, and the first product in the sE Rupert Neve Signature Series. The RNR1 offers natural reproduction of source material, and uses a custom circuit design to deliver a frequency response of 20 Hz to 25 kHz.
The mic has a sleek black design, and offers a figure 8 polar pattern, allowing it to clearly pick up sounds on either side of the mic body. A low-end rolloff switch reduces the effects of low-frequency noises. The mic has a standard 3-pin XLR connector, and operates via 48V phantom power. A shock mount and flight case are included.

The RNR1 has a frequency response approximately 3 times wider than competing ribbon mics, giving it a performance similar to a condenser mic
Natural Sound Reproduction
A custom circuit design allows the mic to capture and output high frequencies in exceptional detail. Hand-wound transformers provide large amounts of headroom and extremely low noise levels
Figure 8 Polar Pattern
The mic's figure 8 polar pattern lets it effectively capture sound from either side of the mic body
LF Rolloff Switch
The LF rolloff switch reduces the effects of low-frequency noises, and also reduces proximity effect
The mic accepts 48V phantom power via the standard XLR connector
