Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned. Starting with the capsule, codenamed the HF6, it is an example of RÿDE's fusion of artistic design approaches and manufacturing techniques. It features a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise. It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass reproduction. The transducer itself is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote's Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then married to high-grade electronics that provide the lowest noise level of any studio microphone available. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise.
