The HORCH RM3 Mark 2 is a large diaphragm microphone in the tradition of the classic Viennese tube microphones of the 1950s and 60s. It features a specially designed large-diaphragm capsule with an integrated shockmount and integrated pop protection. The RM3 Mark 2 is particularly suitable for women's voices and instruments due to its transparent resolution even in high positions and at high sound pressure. True to the HORCH principle "Proven Optimization", the new HORCH RM3 Mark 2 was developed with several improvements compared to the previous model.
New in RM3 Mark 2 are the following features:
The vocal mode offers a special kidney characteristic with an even more pronounced close-up effect compared to the kidney characteristic in the linear mode, thereby helping to sing the desired "larger-than-life" sound. This function is configurable within the microphone via jumper.
The HORCH Impedance Converter converts the output impedance of the microphone capsule and increases the sensitivity and linearity together with the following tube amplifier, without missing the popular "HORCH tube sound". The tube amplifier operates without any frequency response by means of feedback. For lovers of pure tube switching, HORCH provides the Pure Tube Mode , which takes the HORCH-HIC out of the signal flow. The HORCH RM3 then operates as a pure tube microphone, unlike the predecessor model. This function is configurable within the microphone via jumper. The RM3 Mark 2 is 100% identical to the predecessor RM3 in this mode
The set includes the HORCH RM3 Mark 2 microphone, the HORCH standard power supply NT1206 and the cable with swivel joint
Power supply NT1206 The HORCH NT1206 power supply supplies the necessary voltages for the operation of the HORCH tubular strain gauge RM3 Mark 2. The directional characteristic can be varied on the front between ball, kidney and eight-note characteristics.
The HORCH NT1206 is designed in a purely analog circuit technology. It has a very tube-protecting current regulation and an HF-filtering of the anode voltage.
The microphone is connected via a classic 7-pin multipin jack. The connection to a microphone preamplifier is via the 3-pin XLR output.
