While weighing in at under one pound, the SR-2N crams an inordinate amount of size into the sound of your tracks. Employing the same ribbon and toroidal output transformer as the company's flagship model SR-1A, the Stager SR-2N swaps out the large alnico magnets with a more contemporary neodymium motor, while simplifying the housing and mount to put heavyweight punch into a featherweight fighter.

Incredible low-frequency pickup and a neutral midrange set the stage for a very gentle high-frequency roll-off that's inherent to classic ribbons—but the SR-2N miraculously loses no transient detail and beautifully flatters percussive material and bright sound sources in a way that won't make you feel like you're missing anything by skipping the EQ.

Stick one up close on the smaller speaker of an old tube combo for tremendous low-end emphasis, back up a pair to capture drums with a three-dimensional quality or just leave it on a stand and point it at anything that makes sound. You'll be pleased by the results.
