sE Announces DM1 DYNAMITE Inline Preamp and SDC
New at this year’s AES Show in New York City, sE Electronics 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, an affordable small-diaphragm condenser microphone that is also available as a matched stereo pair.
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 minimise 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 optimised 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.
