The AR-70 is an advanced stereo version of the popular AR-51 tube condenser microphone, capable of X/Y, Mid-Side and dual mono recording configurations.

Sonic Characteristic
The AR-70 Stereo features a matched pair of large-diaphragm dual sided TK51D capsules found in the AR-51, a New Old Stock ECC81 / 12AT7 vacuum tube, and a matched pair of European made custom wound T14/1 output transformers all in a single, easy to setup system.

Microphone Design
The AR-70 Stereo includes one fixed cardioid capsule on the bottom, and on top, a capsule wired for remote multi-polar pattern capabilities. This allows the microphone to perform multiple stereo recording techniques, as well as a standard single channel monophonic recording, all in one package. In stereo mode, the AR-70 Stereo can be set up in a standard X/Y configuration, with each capsule orientated 90 degrees away from each other, resulting in a perfectly co-incidental pair. With the option of the multi-pattern functionality of the top capsule, the microphone can also be used in Mid-Side (M/S) technique, where the lower capsule is fixed in cardioid, and the upper capsule is rotated 90 degrees and set to the Figure 8 polar pattern.

Construction
The AR-70 Stereo's rotating steel head-grille mesh and brass base ring are finished in nickel plating, giving the microphone a unique look and vibe. The aluminum body tube is finished in a grey protective hard coat and is engraved with the microphone model name and serial number. An antique nickel-plated Telefunken diamond logo badge is featured on the front of the microphone. The power supply is also finished in a grey protective coating.
