Avlex Corporation is pleased to announce the new Superlux E522/B X/Y Stereo Field Recording Microphone. Designed for use in broadcast and other professional field recording applications as a convenient solution for capturing live performances in stereo, the Superlux E522/B features a closely matched pair of capsules in an X/Y configuration, an integrated switchable low cut filter, external On/Off switch, the ability to operate on either battery or Phantom power, and dual unbalanced outputs that makes this microphone an excellent choice for use with professional or consumer grade A/V equipment.

The new Superlux E522/B excels as a stereo field recording microphone. Featuring two closely matched fixed-charge, back plate, permanently polarized condenser capsules with an X/Y stereo polar pattern, the new E522/B captures live performances with stunning realism and broad spatial impact—enabling the listener to fully appreciate the placement of the various voices or instruments throughout the stereo field. Coupled with a 30 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response and a maximum SPL rating of 126 dB (1 kHz @ 1% THD), the Superlux E522/B is well suited for capturing large wind ensembles, amplified instruments, and other high SPL sound sources without overloading the microphone's sensitive electronics.

Versatility is one of the E522/B's key attributes. This exceptional microphone features a compact form factor that makes it an outstanding choice for use in camera mount applications. With two unbalanced outputs and the ability to connect via its included cables offering a 3.5 mm stereo plug or twin 3.5 mm mono plugs (with quarter-inch phone plug adapters), the Superlux E522/B is adept at integrating with a wide range of professional or consumer grade A/V products—including cameras, DAT recorders, plus a wide range of hard disk, MiniDisc, or flash memory recorders.

For still greater flexibility in the field, the new Superlux E522/B offers users the ability to power the microphone using either a single 1.5V AA battery or Phantom power. Further, with its integrated On/Off switch, users needn't worry about draining the battery unnecessarily. To assist engineers in capturing the clearest, most natural sounding performances, the E522/B also incorporates a low cut filter switch (defined at 150 Hz, 6 dB/octave), which can be particularly useful when recording bass predominant source material. With a signal-to-noise ratio of 70 dB (1 kHz @ 1 Pa) and a dynamic range of 102 dB (1 kHz @ maximum SPL), the Superlux E522/B is engineered to capture all the realism of the original performance.

Jack Nead, national sales manager for Avlex Corporation (exclusive US distributor of Superlux products), commented on the new Superlux E522/B X/Y Stereo Field Recording Microphone, "The new E522/B offers a comprehensive feature set and delivers clear, natural sounding results in a wide variety of audio and video applications. With its diminutive size and the ability to connect to a broad range of equipment, this new stereo microphone is ideally suited for many different recording tasks."

The new Superlux E522/B X/Y Stereo Field Recording Microphone includes a 3-meter stereo cable, a microphone clamp, and a protective pouch. Optional accessories include the S-50 wind screen and the HM-40C camera mount. The new Superlux E522/B carries a MSRP of $100. The microphone is expected to be available Q2 of 2007.
