On axis, its frequencey response is flat from 30Hz to 30Hz at 15cm; closer there is a little more bass, at ambient distances there is a little less. The SR77's impulse response is fast and smooth. It will handle quite hot signals. It has very low handling noise. The off-axis rejection is thorough and uncolored. For recording appplications, the superb sound quality and uncolored direcionality of the SR77 are invaluable.|
The SR77 offers superior performance for a wide variety of real worldd sources, especially guitar, sax, flute, drums and voice. Concert tapers seem to love the SR77.
