The Josephson C725 is a hybrid large-diaphragm condenser microphone using vacuum tube and solid state circuitries and the dual-diaphragm capsule originally used in the C700 and C716 microphones.
The Josephson C725 offers five switchable directional patterns controlled by a unique selector designed to optimise the signal path and change sensitivity.
The head grille uses Josephson’s patented aluminium foam which offers physical and electrical protection. The ultra-fine highly open mesh offers protection from external contamination. This design provides minimal and randomised internal reflections, ensuring a clean and detailed pickup.
The internal circuit uses a cascade topology with a low-noise FET for voltage gain section and a pentode vacuum tube for the current gain stage. This combination provides the benefits of low-noise of the FET along with the dynamic characteristics of vacuum tube. This is followed by a custom nickel-core transformer with independent windings for output and gain control.
The C725 is powered by a PS725 power supply which can be used on 100V and 240V operations and gives control of the 5 direction patterns. The selector signal/dynamics characteristics offer a choice between the warmth characteristic of vacuum tube microphones to a reduced sensitivity with a more neutral tone and higher headroom.
The C725 comes with a 3m long large Tuchel 12-contact connector which can be extended up to 50meters. It ships in a rugged, Pelican fitted carrying case with the dedicated power supply, line cord and protection sleeve.
