    Product Description

    An advanced stereo version of the popular AR-51, the AR-70 is a tube condenser microphone, capable of X/Y, Mid-Side and dual mono recording configurations.

    Sonic Characteristic
    The AR-70 Stereo features a matched pair of large diaphragm dual sided TK51D capsules (the same newly implemented edge-terminated type 26.5 mm dual-membrane design) found in the AR-51), a New Old Stock ECC81 / 12AT7 vacuum tube (the same tube found in the AR-51), and a matched pair of European made custom wound T14/1 output transformers (the same transformers found in ELA M 250/251 and AR-51 microphones) all in a single, easy to setup system.

    Microphone Design
    The AR-70 Stereo includes one fixed cardioid capsule on the bottom, and on top, a capsule wired for remote multi-polar pattern capabilities. This allows the microphone to perform multiple stereo recording techniques, as well as a standard single channel monophonic recording, all in one package. In stereo mode, the AR-70 Stereo can be set up in a standard X/Y configuration, with each capsule orientated 90 degrees away from each other, resulting in a perfectly co-incidental pair. With the option of the multi-pattern functionality of the top capsule, the microphone can also be used in Mid-Side (M/S) technique, where the lower capsule is fixed in cardioid, and the upper capsule is rotated 90 degrees and set to the Figure 8 polar pattern.

    Each AR-70 Stereo microphone comes complete with M 970AR power supply, M 801 25’ dual-shielded TX-7 tube microphone cable, M701 elastic shockmount, a FC70 locking flight case and wooden microphone box.
