SE X1 SApr 04, 2017 - 09:06
Building upon the success of the popular SE X1 microphone, SE Electronics have decided to add a few refinements. Actually, it's more of a major upgrade. The release of the SE X1 S has seen a complete redesign of its predecessor's circuitry, offering superior performance - including the highest dynamic range and SPL handling capabilities in its class.
Utilizing a hand-crafted gold-sputtered large-diaphragm condenser capsule manufactured by sE in their own capsule room, plus the same robust all-metal chassis design as its predecessor, the X1 S now includes two low-cut filters (switchable between 80Hz and 160Hz) and two attenuation pads (-10dB or -20dB), as opposed to the X1’s single filter and pad options. The body’s finish has also been updated with the same new high-quality paint as sE’s latest X1 A, and the XLR connector is now gold-plated for loss-free, reliable, and long-lasting use.
Priced at £149 including VAT, the SE X1 S is a serious contender for that all important versatile studio microphone. Available NOW from Mediaspec.
