Common name: Royer Labs SF-12A
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The Royer SF-12A active stereo coincident ribbon microphone is the only microphone of its kind available, combining high audio performance with outstanding stereo separation and imaging. It is a modern neodymium magnet ribbon design with no audible diffraction effects or cavity resonance. It has superb transient and HF response regardless of angle of incidence, and excellent magnetic screening due to its iron ingot case. The SF-12A ’s active electronics produce a low impedance output comparable in level to studio condenser microphones, while providing an optimum load to both ribbon elements at all times.
