The KU5A substantially expands the scope of what is achievable with AEA ribbons. The AEA line of ribbon mics offers tools for any scenario, in studio or on stage. With our far-field, figure-of-8 ribbons, you can capture vast, expansive room sound. With the near-field and supercardioid ribbons, you can record detailed, direct sound from a source with less room sound and restrained proximity effect.
AEA’s far-field ribbons capture balanced, natural sound from as far as 20 feet away. From such a distance, they manage to retain outstanding low-end response and their proximity effect is considerable at close-range. R44 series, R88, and N8 microphones comprise AEA’s line of far-field mics and are highly effective when recording in large spaces or with large orchestral ensembles.
