Description

Each microphone is a unique product, requiring its necessary manufacturing time, and no compromise is allowed regarding the quality of all its components.

The architecture is assembled around a thin diaphragm capsule whose signal is pre-amplified by a selected NOS PHILIPS tube circuit and an output transformer chosen according to the electronics surrounding it.

Version 2 of the ADS products feature an upgrade of the internal circuits as well as of the external design. You will find details of the changes in the private customer login area.

The finish is handcrafted, with particular attention is given to each aspect of the manufacturing process to minimize any negative effect on the audio signal.

The system is assembled entirely by hand according to the principle of ‘in the air’ wiring, thus avoiding parasitic capacitive phenomena that affect the sound signal.

The EXIRE microphone gives a faithful and realistic musical transmission with great depth, presence and purity of sound with whistle-management, making it a microphone suitable for voice and acoustic instruments such as the piano, the guitar and string instruments among others.

When listened to, the highly-textured soundscape give a feeling of presence and richness of the timbres of the instrument which is truly exceptional.
