Neumann Announces New Capsules for KM D Digital Mic Series

With the launch of three new capsule heads, six Neumann miniature microphones are now available with the choice of analog or digital output. Neumann has doubled the number of modular capsule head options for the KM D miniature digital series of microphones with the introduction of the new KK 131 (free field–equalized omnidirectional), KK 143 (wide cardioid) and KK 145 (cardioid with low frequency roll-off), which are all derived from the analog KM 100 and KM 180 Series.

The three new modular capsule heads join three existing options for the KM D microphone series, which locates proven Neumann A/D converter technology in the microphone immediately next to the capsule. Like these latest additions, the existing KK 183 (diffuse field-equalized omnidirectional), KK 184 (cardioid) and KK 185 (hypercardioid) capsule heads were also developed from the KM 100 and KM 180 series of miniature analog microphones. The KM 100 series AK capsule heads are not interchangeable with KM D series capsule heads.

All KM D series capsule heads are offered in a choice of classic nickel (ni) or new nextel black (nx) finishes and ship in a protective wooden box. U.S. retail price for each KM D series capsule head is $779.
