The engineering of this particular piece of cutting-edge audio technology asked for a forward-thinking approach towards capsule and circuit design. As a result, a way of experiencing sound at infinite depth and absolute precision came to life; its name, the LCT 540 Subzero. Get involved with tone and sound in ways unheard and bring your recordings to perfection by capturing all the fine-grained characteristics that constitute each moment of your performance.

Unique Self-Noise Architecture
To see how good human hearing is in a purely technical way, look at the threshold of hearing. Human hearing is less sensitive towards low and very high frequencies and most sensitive around 2 – 5 kHz. Comparing the hearing threshold to the self-noise values of the LCT 540 Subzero, you can clearly see that Lewitt microphone is always below the threshold of hearing. The entire frequency spectrum is important, here, because looking at a microphone's self-noise as a single value just isn't detailed enough when discussing high-end sound transducers.

Why is Low Self-Noise Important?
When you climb a mountain, and the weather is clear, your reward is a fantastic view. If it is partly cloudy or foggy, the payoff is profoundly reduced. The same goes for recording. Some peaks stick out of the noise floor (fog), but if you remove as much noise as possible, you will be rewarded with details that were buried before. This microphone can pick up the subtlest details in vocals or instruments, an almost inaudible whispering can be pushed up and sound crystal clear. Many noise issues only reveal themselves in post-production. Once you start compressing the signals a previously inaudible noise floor can appear; not with the LCT 540 Subzero.

Infinite Depth - Absolute Precision
The LCT 540 Subzero captures every sound source with absolute precision - because it is built with absolute precision; not even the tiniest detail of your recorded source will get lost. To guarantee its ultra-resolution sound and first-class sonic imaging, the 3 μm gold-sputtered, 1" Mylar diaphragm undergoes a series of strict quality control tests.
