Neutral sounds different, but not always better
z6k, 08.03.2012
I have been using the Superlux R102 ribbon microphone for almost a year, in the living room as well as in the studio. I especially like the full, velvety sound. Absolutely no noise, no hum.

The slightly dampened heights are not noticeable at all because of the precision in the middle range. From the low to the high mids, the ribbon microphone offers very fine drawing, which is not comparable with other microfontypes and is not available. The micro is easy to handle with smaller volume fluctuations, although it also sensitively reacts and communicates spatial depth.

For rock and blues-oriented music it is almost a general purpose weapon: I used it both directly in front of the guitar amp as well as support micro. In the field of vocals, it also lends a less attractive voice (like mine) to a charming sound. Also harp and percussion takes the micro clean (although we did in the studio the harp but then with a large membrane capacitor, because of the highs).

Some care must be taken to the alignment. With the clear eight-note characteristic, the sound changes when the source is not centered. In addition, what is happening on the opposite side is important, because every sound event is recorded. But you can also use it in connection with another micro usable MS stereo recordings, even in live use! But this is already at the limit of what the micro can afford.

The equipment with massive cable and functional holder in the plastic case offers everything necessary for the application. However, the bracket does not contain any attenuation, which must then make the impact sound filter on the mixing console.

By the way: To prevent the microphone from tilting from the holder, the knurled nut must be unscrewed on the XLR socket, the micro inserted into the holder and then attached with the knurled nut to the holder. But is no effort. The power supply via phantom power - very easy.

It is right, what should apply to Ribbon Mikes: Neutral sounds different. Neutral is not always better.

Good binding microphone for guitarencecording
Michael559, 21.11.2009
Features: With its ribbon, the Superlux R102 records very detail-accurate and thus original instruments. Thanks to the integrated electronics, it also creates an output level that can be used to work well. Also the included cable with angle plug and last not least the case made of hard plastic are useful features.

Sound: As already described above, results in instrumental recordings are very authentic, especially if the instruments have a more central sound (eg guitars). The included measurement protocol shows which frequencies the microcomputer transmits: At 5000Hz the curve is already downwards and it ends at approx. 15000Hz. This means that the micro is not suitable for high, brilliant sounds, but for example for nylons strings or rockboards, or as a micro, which should support only these frequencies.

Processing: Very good
