Microfoane de studio Neumann
M 150 Tube
A redesigned classic with state-of-the-art circuit technology and
correspondingly low self-noise. Like the legendary M 50, this tube
microphone is ideal for orchestral recording.
Since the 1950s, the Neumann M 50 has been heralded as the ideal
microphone for orchestral recording and string scoring. With its
phenomenal transient response and unique directional characteristic,
this classic mic has endeared many fans, both in the control room
and on the soundstage.
The new M 150 Tube takes many of the features from the original
M 50 and incorporates them in a very modern microphone. With low
self noise, a Titanium membrane and capsule, transformerless tube
amplifier and sophisticated power supply, the M 150 Tube is not
a reissue but an entirely new microphone in its own right.
Its special acoustic properties make this an ideal mic for most
A superb AB stereo pair for perfect balance of direct and reverberant
Decca tree, setup with three microphones
A highest quality spot (solo) mic
These are just some of the most common applications. We recommend
additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.
The Titanium diaphragm of the pressure capsule is 12 mm in diameter
and is exceedingly thin. Although Titanium has been known to have
unique and desirable characteristics for some time, it has, until
very recently, been very difficult to procure in the quality necessary
for use in a microphone of this type.
The headgrille is shaped just like that on the original M 50, as
requested by various top engineers in the recording industry. Due
to mounting the pressure capsule with the diaphragm flush to the
surface of a small (40 mm) sphere, the directional characteristic
of the M 150 Tube is entirely unique.
At the lowest frequencies, this system is a pure omnipressure transducer
with a perfectly circular polar pattern. However, in the mid- and
upper frequencies, the pickup pattern becomes more narrow. The M
150 Tube is an ideal microphone for any stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround
recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique.
The dynamic range of the M 150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction
of the full musical expression, without restraint.
With a low self noise of 15 dB-A, more gain can be used without
risk of adding noise to the final product. The transformerless output
circuit of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction
of small signals and low frequency information. Also, long cable
runs can be used with no loss of signal quality.
