This Dizengoff MD118 Microphone looks great and functions perfectly.
The Dizengoff MD118 is a transformer-coupled large diaphragm FET microphone that combines the spirit of classic German microphones of the 1960’s and 1970’s with modern technology. MD stands for 'modified diaphragm.' The MD118 makes use of a modified 26mm cardioid pattern capsule for excellent frequency response, and pairs it with a classic German inspired FET circuit. In many cases, the MD118 exhibits better frequency and transient response than microphones with larger 34mm capsules, and its size, dimension, and tonal response mirrors microphones that are 4 or 5 times its price.
The MD118's off-axis behavior is excellent. In situations where low frequency response needs to be curbed, positioning the microphone about 45 degrees off-axis is a great way to achieve this while still maintaining a solid audio image. In addition, the MD118 makes use of an output transformer style found in high end Japanese hi-fi designs of the late 1990's. It gives the MD118 a quality that’s clear and revealing, yet it has a richness, weight, and unique nuance.
