Last year, sE Electronics released an updated and refined version of their best-selling condenser microphone sE2200. With the same look, features and specifications of the cardioid-only sE2200, the sE2300 adds a switch on its rear side to select between figure-8, cardioid, or omnidirectional polar patterns. Now the sE2300 is available in the USA and the rest of the world.
Main features of the condenser microphone sE2300
The sE2300 features a handcrafted true condenser capsule. Every capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned in sE Electronics' own factory in Shanghai. Low noise, consistent performance and high sensitivity is provided by state-of-the-art surface-mounted electronic components with extremely tight tolerances.
It also features three patterns, two attenuation pads and two low-cut filters. The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide variety of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments. Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, the two low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise. They also help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
It also features the same class-A discrete circuitry and robust output transformer as its cardioid sibling. This preserves the clarity and “larger than life” tonality beloved by thousands of customers worldwide, while adding both omnidirectional and figure-8 polar patterns in addition to the original cardioid pattern to dramatically increase its versatility. The all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
The condenser microphone sE2300 is now available through authorized sE Electronics distributors and dealers worldwide. The a street price will be $399.00 USD. It ships standard with the sE Isolation Pack quick-lock shock mount and adjustable metal pop filter.
