Over 30 years of servicing ribbon mics taught AEA what users like, and they all like the big sound of the RCA 44. Preserving and reintroducing that sound became an AEA mission. The AEA R44 and A440s, robust, heavy, and expensive to manufacture, are now in daily use worldwide. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
How can AEA preserve and update that Big Ribbon sound in a more affordable package using new technologies?
The A840 uses the same big ribbon as the A440, is 5 pounds lighter, and less bulky. Due to its active JFET impedance buffer circuitry the new A840 is insensitive to lower preamp input impedances. The high output sensitivity reduces noise and allows long cable runs. This allows you to use your favorite tube preamp without compromising your classic ribbon sound. Designed for accent and solo work, its bass proximity effect is less pronounced and the upper 10 to 20 kHz octave is stronger than the A440.
Why do the AEA Big Ribbon mics sound so different when compared to other microphones?
Classic condenser diaphragms are radially stretched. They typically have sharp, narrow resonances in the 8 to 12 kHz range, the sound quality we refer to as “tizz”. AEA Big Ribbon mics use a long rectangular diaphragm clamped only at the ends and tensioned lightly with a fundamental resonance below 20 Hz. Less than 80 millionths of an inch thick, AEA's ultra low mass transducer has extended bass, excellent transient response and few resonances. It’s one of the most sensitive and accurate transducers possible. Many have commented that AEA mics record exactly what your ear hears. Excellent headroom and low distortion allow close micing with an A840 without sounding brittle. Additionally the smooth, non-resonant high end provides engineers considerable EQ flexibility.
