  • AEA launch the Phantom-Powered Big Ribbon A440

    December 13 2008
    The New AEA A440
    The quietest ribbon microphone ever produced. Finally, a high performance phantom-powered Big Ribbon™

    AEA is proud to announce the A440, the quietest ribbon microphone ever produced. The A440 owes this to its stunningly hot output created by its phantom-powered Big Ribbon™ A440 yielding a signal-to-noise ratio of 88dB (A), combined with all the warmth of a classic ribbon. Inspired by AEA’s forty years of experience with ribbon mics, particularly 44s, this mic has the greatest useable dynamic range of any ribbon microphone.

    At the low frequency end the A440 delivers bass with effortless authority. It has a flat frequency response and holds an accurate figure-eight polar pattern down to 20 Hz. The A440 has a smooth and articulate midrange, and at the high end, transients are quick and detailed without hard edges.
