sE Electronics/Rupert Neve RNT Tube Condenser Microphone

Tube microphone in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs bringing the larger-than-life sounds of classic studio microphones into the modern age
MFR# RNT-U

Product Description

The sE Electronics/Rupert Neve RNT Tube Microphone is the third in a series of collaborations between sE and Rupert Neve designs. The RNT provides fully discrete, Class-A electronics throughout both stages of the microphone and nine different polar patterns options including cardioid, figure eight, omni, bi-directional and everything in between.

The first stage, the tube-based path of the microphone, includes an ultra-low noise ECC82 tube in the microphone chassis as well as a custom built RND output transformer. The second stage is contained within the power supply and can be used to control the polar pattern, filter and gain switching. The op-amps used within the RNT are the same custom amp used in the flagship 5088 recording console, which has been known worldwide for its extremely high headroom and clarity. To provide the best signal path possible, a second custom RND output transformer has been implemented to this stage.

The large diaphragm condenser microphone is sE’s best design to date, all developed and constructed by hand in the sE factory. The mic includes all Class-A circuitry providing the maximum dynamic range and highest SPL possible while maintaining an ultra-low noise floor. With the option to engage a 12 dB pad or boost the overall input level by 12 dB, the RNT will surely handle any source you put in front of it. Two selectable high-pass filters allow you to remove the low-end rumble generated by the room, or to decrease the proximity effect or plosives of the performance.

Reliable operation is ensured by the sturdy all-metal design, robust construction, and high- quality manufacturing standards. A high-quality metal case is also included.

Tube richness, with a full low end. Thru the Rupert Meve preamp with silk on male vocals we got a bit gritty, but still smooth vintage character.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
