The CR-14 features a dual, low-mass ribbon element which enables a much better sensitivity rating than most single ribbon designs. It has a fast and accurate transient response, ultra-high 148 dB SPL capability and overall stunning realism. The figure-8 audio directionality pattern has extended sweet spots as compared to large diaphragm condenser mics and single ribbon designs.
The microphone also comes with a Custom Retro Shockmount, which is perfect for precisely positioning the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations. This isolation gives superior professional results.
The CR-14 is manufactured using the finest materials, which gives a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. It produces professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character. It has very low residual noise with no internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion, and it requires no power supply.
