New AEA R84A Microphon

23.03.2018
AEA has made it easier and more affordable to own the powerhouse active R84 ribbon mic. The new R84A is the phantom-powered version of the R84 ribbon mic, and it’s everything you’d expect from an active version of the legacy passive R84.
Previously known as the A840, the R84A is a must for artists or engineers who desire the classic R84 sound with an active 12dB boost that allows greater flexibility with various preamps.

Along with its new title, the R84A boasts a lower introductory price point for the next six months.

Key Features


• A custom transformer made in Germany, the same one in the NUVO series microphones and the active R44, the A440. This transformer provides the R84A 12dB more output than the passive R84.

• An active buffer board that gives the user the flexibility to pair it with any preamp.

• A lustrous 18-carat gold plated grille and thumb nuts.
