    Designed and developed in England and beta-tested by top producers and artists, the Sontronics ARIA features a large, 1.07-inch, edge-terminated cardioid capsule that will reproduce all the finest details of any female or male vocal performance. And thanks to Sontronics' trademark smooth-high-frequency-rolloff, you'll end up with stunningly clear top end, smooth, warm mids and a juicy bottom end, especially when taking advantage of the proximity effect.
    On the accompanying power supply unit you'll find pad (0, -10dB) and filter (linear, 75Hz) switches to give you even more control. The Sontronics ARIA boasts a European 12AX7/ECC83 valve, which lends a character to your recordings that you would expect to find in a classic vintage valve mic costing many times more.
    Beta-tested by Oscar- and Grammy-winning producer Paul Epworth, Mercury award-winning singer/songwriter PJ Harvey and several Abbey Road engineers, the Sontronics ARIA is definitely a go-to vocal microphone that will give you professional, classic-sounding results on any voice wherever you are recording. It also sounds lovely on piano, acoustic guitar, cello and other instruments.
    Sontronics ARIA is supplied in a velvet-lined wooden box, which comes in an aluminium flightcase together with its elastic spider-style shockmount, a ring mount and the SPS-2 power supply plus connecting cable.
    Like all Sontronics mic, the ARIA valve mic for vocals is covered by Sontronics' LIFETIME WARRANTY and comes with free downloads of Toontrack's EZMix 2 Lite and EZdrummer Lite software.

Great, great sounding mic. I shan't wax lyrical because I would strongly encourage you to hear it for yourself. Was hoping to get a discount but no dice, in the end more than happy to pay close to ticket price because of the incredible VFM this thing represents.
