The Neumann TLM 193 is a large diaphragm microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. With this microphone Neumann continues its long tradition, and is offering high end technology at an affordable price for musicians and the home recording studio. The microphone uses a transformerless circuit, featuring extremely low self noise and large dynamic range.
The polar response is very linear over a wide incidence angle. Thus, even signals coming from the side are reproduced faithfully and without coloration. The exposed surface of the microphone capsule is at ground potential, making it immune to typical interference and contamination. The microphone is supplied with a swivel mount.
Its sonic purity and technical excellence make the TLM 193 a very easy to use microphone for many applications. Just point it at the source to capture its natural sonic beauty. The TLM 193 is a superb microphone for vocals and speech, especially dubbing and voice-over work, where it will capture the authentic voice character without “added flavours”. Of course, the TLM 193 may also be used for a great variety of instruments such as acoustic and electric guitar, drums and percussion, piano, and much more.
The TLM 193 is mainly designed for home, project, and broadcast studios but is also a very useful and versatile addition for larger setups. Its linear, uncolored sound image both on- and off-axis makes the TLM 193 an excellent spot mic in orchestral recordings e.g. for low strings, woodwinds and brass an. Due to its slightly smaller size and dark colour scheme, the TLM 193 is visually unobtrusive. is able to handle extreme sound pressure levels of up to 140 dB free from distortion artifact.
All exposed surfaces of the microphone capsule, including the diaphragms, are at ground potential. This technology makes them highly immune to electrical and atmospheric interference and contamination through microscopic dust particles.
