sE Electronics has announced two new products: the DM1 DYNAMITE, a slim, high-performance inline preamp that provides a consistent +28dB of gain for dynamic or passive ribbon microphones; and the sE7, a new affordable small-diaphragm condenser microphone that is also available as a Matched Stereo Pair. Here’s what they have to say about each…
The DM1 DYNAMITE is an active inline preamp intended to be inserted between a dynamic or passive ribbon microphone and a microphone preamplifier. The DM1 provides +28dB of discrete class-A gain, and offers nearly half the noise, significantly lower output impedance, and much more consistent gain than any other inline mic preamp on the market, thanks to its specially-selected high-grade components and dedicated output buffer amplifier. According to sE, “The DM1 DYNAMITE is the perfect way to boost the signal from a passive mic for studio, podcasting, or on-stage use. It also reduces the microphone’s output impedance to minimize the likelihood of interference, drive long cable runs, and provide significantly improved level in your signal path - without adding noise or coloration.”
The sE7 is a high-quality back-electret small-diaphragm condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio and live applications with acoustic guitars, pianos, drums, and more. “With an optimized acoustic design, discrete class-A circuitry, versatile attenuation and low-cut switches and a transformerless output, it delivers clear, natural sound quality at all frequencies for any instrument, without suffering from ‘fizzy’ highs or lack of low-frequency punch.” An sE7 Matched Stereo Pair is also available, with microphones individually matched at the factory to provide the best possible stereo imaging.
Pricing and Availability:
The DM1 is now available worldwide with an MSRP of $129 USD. The sE7 (MSRP $129) and sE7 Stereo Pair (MSRP $259 USD) are also available now. The sE7 includes a mic clip, thread adapter and wind screen, while the sE7 Stereo Pair includes two of each.
