Royer Labs SF-2

October 10, 2012

Active ribbon microphone
The SF-2 is a phantom-powered version of the original SF-1 ribbon microphone. It has an output level of -38dB, which enables the microphone to be used with a wide variety of mic preamplifiers, regardless of gain characteristics. The SF-2's electronics and custom-designed FET's deliver quiet operation with self-noise of lower than 18dB. The microphone's magnet/pole piece transducer structure provides a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbon element delivers excellent transient response. The microphone's off-axis coloration is negligible. These characteristics enable the microphone to deliver rich, full-range sound quality.
