AEA R92 Ribbon Microphone & TRP Preamp Bundle

The AEA R92 stereo bundle is a kit that contains two AEA R 92 professional ribbon microphones, a TRP Preamp, hard case and power supply. This microphone has a smooth high frequency response much like the R88 and R84 transducers while combined with it's casing it produced a beautiful unique tone you can only achieve with AEA microphones. Like all figure 8 microphones the R92 is subject to proximity effect allowing you to use this advantage to increase or decrease your your low frequencies as you move you microphone around getting you the perfect sound.

AEA has designed the R92 to have slightly different tones on the front and rear pickup lobes of the bidirectional microphone. The front lobe of the R92 is the "crisp" side, offering exceptionally clean and realistic high end detail. The rear lobe is the "smooth" side, which has a bit of classic ribbon high end roll-off reminiscent of the iconic 44 that can help to handle harsh transients in a very refined and flattering way. The bass reproduction of the R92 is very solid and extends to the lowest audible bass frequencies.

The AEA TRP is a one of a kind preamp was designed specifically for use with ribbon mics, moving coil, and tube mics and has 83db of clean gain and no dangerous phantom power. The Ribbon Pre is one of the only mic pres out there designed exclusively for ribbon mics. The TRP is an ultra fast, two channel, minimal-path JFET preamp designed collaboratively with Fred Forssell. This unit is designed to have one of the lowest noise floors available. Eliminating phantom power allows for advantages in minimal signal path circuitry and the elimination of electronics that induce noise.
