The RNT is the third microphone in the collaboration between sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Designs, founded by legendary audio designer Rupert Neve. ‘Much like the RNR1 Active Ribbon and RN17 Small-Diaphragm Condenser, the RNT is something truly special, developed over several years of careful listening and measurement by Rupert Neve, Siwei Zou, and the engineering teams from both companies,’ says an sE representative. ‘The partnership an extension of the great friendship between the two founders. This elegantly different tube microphone design was one of the first concepts they originally discussed long ago – and after many years in development, we are exceptionally proud to see it brought to life.’

The new flagship tube microphone features ‘the very finest handcrafted capsule sE has ever developed’, nine switchable polar patterns, two custom Rupert Neve Designs output transformers, an ECC82 tube gain stage in the microphone, and a second gain stage in the floor box using the same high-performance op-amps as those found in Rupert Neve Designs’ 5088 console. It also features fully discrete class-A electronics throughout, three switchable gain levels, and two switchable low-cut filters. The RNT ships standard with a high-end custom shock mount, a wooden microphone box, and a robust flightcase.

The RNT ships worldwide January 2018 with an MSRP of US$3,499/€3,499.
