Astonishing price and performance
The Imperative Audio Lucent represents an astonishing price/performance ratio employing a dual gold capsule configuration to provide a well-defined frequency response. The back-to-back capsules operate via a VPM (Voltage Phase Matrix) which maintains a predictable polar pattern throughout the frequency range. The 35mm capsules are pre-aged to ensure they maintain their tight tolerances for life not just for a few months. The Imperative Audio Lucent copes well with problems such as stage borne noise by including a 10dB pad and a low-frequency roll-off, which is great for you need to remove those low frequencies that aren’t part of what’s needed to be recorded, like mic stand rumble for example.
Internally the Lucent is manufactured with a pair of JFET preamps. The junction field-effect transistor preamps offer high input impedance with super low noise figures. This allows you to capture sound sources with the lowest noise platform and a wide overload margin. Resulting in the Lucent being able to perform without any comprise in any situation find yourself in.
