CL5: The CL5 features a 12.7mm gold sputtered capsule with a 3-micron tensioned diagram working in concert with advanced head amp electronics to faithfully reproduce any sound source. The CL5 is a studio condenser in a handheld package. It handles a high SPL of up to 141dB. The CL5 is a pressure gradient, true condenser with cardioid pick-up pattern and extended linear frequency response that operates on 48V phantom power and comes with a dual stage windscreen and comes in a durable carry case. The CL5 is available in both a nickel and black finish.
BXX-CR, HTXP: The BXX-CR accessory kit consists of a black XX boot without the standard XXR coding ring and a clear ring XXCR instead. This saves assemblers time and money, as they do not have to replace the standard ring before assembling the clear ring. Neutrik's HTXP hand tool for its XX and PX series is the newest addition to the wide range of assembly tools now offered by the company. The HTXP can either tighten the XX boot or the bushing for the new PX plug series.
