The SCX25A is a true condenser microphone with an elegant design and a patented capsule suspension system. Uniquely shock mounted within an intricate machined brass ring, the SCX25A capsule is completely isolated from the mic body and the electronics. By successfully minimizing acoustic reflections and diffractions, SCX25A delivers a pure, open-air sound unlike any other microphone.
Delivering a smooth uniform frequency response from 20 Hz-20 kHz, the SCX25A will reproduce vocals and acoustic instruments with exceptional detail and realism. The SCX25A is very consistent when responding to incoming off-axis signals, exhibiting excellent phase coherence and minimal proximity effect.
By employing miniaturized low noise components, the preamp circuitry for the SCX25A is housed within a brass microphone body which is merely 4 inches long. The result is the smallest footprint of any large diaphragm microphone to date, allowing the SCX25A more convenience and freedom when it comes to mic placement. And because of the internal capsule suspension mounting system, the need for costly shock mounts is eliminated and set-up time is greatly simplified.
The SCX25A operates on phantom power of 48-52 Volts. Optimum results will be achieved by using the SCX25A with a high quality mic preamplifier and premium quality microphone cable
