The mic’s power supply is fully regulated and excessively filtered. It includes numerous component upgrades unique to the Aztec: NOS tantalum resistors, a Swiss-made pattern control, and Roswell’s own electrolytic filter capacitors, which were specially designed for audio. Even the fuse and fuse holder are upgraded to gold-plated German-made parts.
The microphone benefits from relentless upgrading as well, incorporating an incredibly transparent NOS military-spec input capacitor and a copper-foil output capacitor made specifically for this microphone. Both the mic and PSU represent two years’ worth of R&D, during which countless components were auditioned, or in some cases, custom designed and manufactured.
