The Solaris large-diaphragm, multi-pattern, studio condenser microphone delivers the best-sounding Class-A solid-state electronics available at any price. Like the rest of the award-winning M-Audio microphone line, Solaris is designed in the USA and hand-assembled in limited quantities. Vintage design principles merge with incredibly tight state-of-the-art manufacturing standards to yield no more than +/- 1 dB of variation from published curves across the entire 20 Hz-20 kHz frequency range. The industry’s thinnest evaporated-gold diaphragm mounted in a solid brass capsule delivers exceptional sensitivity and warmth. Multi-pattern architecture provides flexibility that makes it ideal for just about any recording situation including vocals, guitar, piano, drums and live events. It’s like having three mics in one.Features: Multi-pattern condenser design > ideal for vocals, guitar, piano and live recordings Class A FET electronics > extremely clean sound 3-micron, 1.1 evaporated
