sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Design Announce the RNT Large-Diaphragm Microphone

sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Design has introduced the RNT, a multi-pattern tube condenser microphone that becomes the flagship of the line.

The RNT is the third microphone in the collaboration between sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Designs, founded by the legendary audio designer, Rupert Neve.

“Much like the RNR1 Active Ribbon and RN17 Small-Diaphragm Condenser, the RNT is something truly special, developed over several years of careful listening and measurement by Rupert Neve,” said Siwei Zou of sE Electronics.


The partnership between sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Designs is an extension of the friendship between the two founders.

The tube microphone features “the very finest handcrafted capsule sE has ever developed,” nine switchable polar patterns, two custom Rupert Neve Designs output transformers, an ECC82 tube gain stage in the microphone and a second gain stage in the floor box using the same high-performance op-amps as those found in Rupert Neve Designs’ 5088 console.

It also features fully discrete class-A electronics throughout, three switchable gain levels and two switchable low-cut filters. The RNT ships standard with a high-end custom shock mount, a wooden microphone box and a flight case.


The RNT is priced at $3,499.
