sE Electronics RNT overview

  • 1Description

Developed in close collaboration with pioneering designer Rupert Neve, the flagship sE Electronics RNT is a large-diaphragm, multi-pattern tube condenser microphone, which promises to bring the larger-than-life sounds of classic studio tube microphones into the modern age, capturing vocals and instruments with enhanced depth and sonic clarity.

The RNT microphone features a handcrafted, gold-sputtered, 1" true-condenser, dual-diaphragm capsule, individually tuned in the company's factory to deliver a natural sound. The first active stage includes a hand-selected, low-noise ECC82 tube housed within the microphone chassis and optimized for driving the mic's first custom-made Rupert Neve Designs output transformer. The microphone's all-metal construction provides efficient rejection of electrical interference and noise, and its high-quality finish offers protection against damage from normal use or aging.

The floor box (power supply) houses a second, custom-made Rupert Neve Designs output transformer, built around the same custom op-amps used in Rupert Neve Designs' flagship 5088 recording console, and known for its pristine transparency and large headroom. The box features a nine-position polar pattern switch, which enables you to choose between omnidirectional, cardioid, figure-8, or positions in-between to optimize the pickup of the desired sound source while controlling ambient sound and minimizing unwanted signal bleed.

The Microphone utilizes fully discrete, Class-A electronics throughout both of its active stages. It offers three switchable stages of active gain with 24 dB of extended dynamic range, ideal for recording delicate ambiences or close-miking loud instruments and voices. Two switchable, active low-cut filters at 40 and 80 Hz help reduce unwanted rumble or compensate for proximity effect.

The RNT includes an 8-pin cable to connect the mic to the floor box, a custom shockmount, a wooden microphone box, and a flight case.
