The AEA R84 is quickly becoming a classic in the recording studio. Developed as a lighter alternative to the huge R44, the R84 provides the best of the 44 series in an affordable and easy to carry package.
The R84 series’ balanced and manageable proximity effect bolsters the low-end of vocals, drums, and brass, from just feet away. A ribbon mic as multi-purpose, lightweight, and maneuverable as the R84 is well-suited for both close-range and ambient mic applications.
The R84A (active version) retains the same sonic character of the R84 but offers an additional 12dB of output and a stable impedance that allows flexibility when recording quiet sources through any preamp.
