Neumann TLM103 Cardiod Condenser Microphone

Item: NNTLM103

Neumann TLM103 in nickel finish.

The Neumann TLM 103 is the 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 features exceptionally low self-noise and the highest sound pressure level transmission. The capsule, derived from that used in the U 87, has a cardioid pattern, is acoustically well-balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear.

Delivery includes an SG 1 metal swivel mount and a wooden jeweler's box.

Due to the universal cardioid pattern, extremely low self-noise level, and its price, the TLM 103 is perfect for all applications from home recording to professional broadcasting as well as commercial recording studios.

The TLM 103 is equipped with a Neumann K103 large diaphragm capsule which is derived from Neumann's K87 capsule, well known from the U67 AND U87 microphones. Because of ts cardioid polar pattern which is used in most recording situations – the attenuation of unwanted rear sound has been optimized. Off-axis sounds are rendered naturally while isolation is increased. This also leads to a high feedback suppression when the microphone is used in live situations or where loudspeaker playback is a factor.

The capsule has a flat frequency response up to about 5 kHz, and above that, a wide flat 4 dB presence boost. The large wire mesh headgrille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. These characteristics are achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects allowing the Neumann TLM 103 to reproduce the finest details of music and speech without coloration.

As it is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 138 dB without distortion, the TLM 103 provides a dynamic range of 131 dB (A-weighted). The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. 

The frequency range reaches below 20 Hz and thus even very low bass signals are reproduced without coloration. Due to this low frequency extension, the TLM 103 is more sensitive to structure borne interference and wind noise. For such cases, the optional elastic suspension EA 1 and the windscreen WS 87 are available as accessories and a pop screens is recommended.
