Neumann TLM 103 D Digital Condenser Microphone
Neumann TLM 103 D Digital Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser MicrophoneNeumann TLM 103 D Details
The Neumann TLM 103 D Microphone is the digital version of their TLM 103 mic. TLM stands for transformerless microphone. The Neumann TLM 103 D features the Neumann A/D converter to receive the output signal directly from the capsule. With a dynamic range exceeding that of the capsule, the converter permits optimal utilization of the mic capsule's qualities. This ensures that the capsule signal is made available to the recording system with a hitherto unknown transparency and without coloration,
If required, the DSP functions integrated into the microphone can be configured and controlled remotely via the DMI-2 digital microphone interface and the RCS remote control software. These functions include gain setting, a compressor/limter with an additional de-esser function, and a peak limiter. The digital concept proves particularly beneficial here. The peak limiter, which receives the output signal almost directly from the capsule, acts as an automatic "safety valve", permitting safe exploitation of the entire available dynamic range even in stressful recording situations. For the purpose of clear identification, information concerning the name of the manufacturer, model, serial number and installed software version is transmitted by the microphones to the connected receiver.
Neumann TLM 103 D microphones are equipped with a 3-pin XLR connector for bi-directional signal transmission conforming to the AES 42 standard. This signal includes the balanced digital microphone output signal, the phantom power supply, and a remote control data stream that also contains a signal for synchronizing the TLM 103 D microphone with a master clock.
Two versions of the Neumann TLM 103 D are available: Classic nickel, and black finish. All standard sampling frequencies are supported, from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz.
The Neumann TLM 103 D is an ideal large diaphragm microphone for all professional and semi-professional applications requiring the utmost in sound quality on a limited budget.
By utilizing the tried and true transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, the TLM 103 D features low self-noise and the highest sound pressure level transmission. The cardioid capsule, derived from the Neumann U 87 mic, is acoustically well-balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear.
