Roswell Pro Audio Ships Delphos II Studio Microphone

Roswell Pro Audio has shipped the Delphos II microphone, a studio condenser that provides an un-hyped natural frequency response, high sensitivity and low self-noise.

Roswell said the new version of its microphone includes a figure-8 polar pattern and updated electronics designed to reduce ultrasonic noise. The mic features a new, larger body than the original Delphos, adorned in custom metallic blue paint.

The Delphos II uses a transformerless circuit; two switches providing a choice of cardioid, omni and figure 8 polar patterns, as well as a 10 dB pad. The mic has a frequency range of 20 Hz to 16 kHz. Its sensitivity is 40mV/Pa, with a self-noise level rated at 12 dBA.

The microphone’s circuit is built by hand using low-noise NOS transistors and audiophile capacitors. Each Delphos II is assembled in California, burned in and tested after manufacturing. The Delphos II ships in a custom, heavy-duty flight case with a proprietary Roswell cutaway shock mount.

The price of the Delphos II is $999.
