Royer SF-24

Ribbon Mic, Stereo, Phantom Pwrd, Small Elements (1.8-micron), Matte Black Finish


This phantom powered version of the popular SF-12 stereo ribbon microphone boasts the same high quality audio performance, outstanding stereo separation and imaging of its sibling while adding an innovative active electronics system.

The SF-24's output of -38 dB is a full 14 dB more sensitive than the SF-12, putting its sensitivity on par with that of phantom powered condenser microphones. Its unique electronics and custom designed FETs offer ultra-quiet operation, with self-noise of lower than 18 dB. It will work with virtually any mic or onboard preamp.

Like an SF-12, the SF-24 is actually two matched ribbon microphones placed one above the other in a coincident pair, each aimed 45 degrees from center in the classic Blumlein configuration. The magnet/pole piece structure of each ribbon transducer delivers a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbons produce superb transient response. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbons and off-axis coloration is negligible.

Its extension cable comes with a Y adapter that splits into separate 3-pin male XLR connectors for the upper and lower capsules of the microphone (when held vertically).
