Ocean Way Audio Displays the RM1 Ribbon Mic

Ocean Way Audio  will be featuring the new RM1 Ribbon Mic at AES 139th International Convention in NYC. This Bidirectional Ribbon Microphone, designed by Cliff Henricksen, Director of New Technology, is receiving acclaim from recording artists nationwide. It is among the first models introduced under the brand name “Cliff Mics,” brought to market through Ocean Way Audio’s growing dealer network.

The mic features the greatest magnetic force ever available in a Ribbon Mic. The super-quiet 48V phantom first stage preamp has been designed with all discrete audiophile circuitry. The output level is comparable to the quietest condenser mics, and the high-intensity NeO-powered magnet super-circuit delivers 6dB more level. Unlike most ribbon mics, the RM1 works with any modern preamp equipped with phantom power drawing about 8mA (4mA per side).

Allen Sides, OWA founder and CEO, comments, “The RM1 is a completely unique Ribbon Mic, with amazing performance like no other. The secret is Cliff’s unique design that optimizes the physical structure around the ribbon. We invite you to listen at our AES booth, #337.”

Rick Plushner, OWA President, adds, “The addition of Cliff Mics is part of our strategic business plan to develop proprietary Ocean Way-branded products in other categories that will help ensure the long-term expansion of the Ocean Way Audio brand.”
