The microphones KMS 104 D and KMS 105 D are the transition of the well-established KMS 104/105 analog microphones into the digital domain. Based on the AES42 standard, these microphones are an ideal choice for live and on-stage applications.

They provide all of the features of their analog counterparts. Additionally, they offer the advantages of the digital circuit technology, such as extended dynamic range, a more robust operation (EMC safe) and the avoidance of clipping as a result of the integrated peak limiter/ compressor.

  • Neumann sound on stage
  • Excellent transparency for vocals/speech
  • Cardioid polar pattern with excellent feedback rejection
  • Without off-axis coloration
  • Effective pop shielding without any side effects
  • Set includes stand clamp
  • The legendary Neumann sound in the digital realm. Pure Neumann capsule sound.
  • The satisfaction of recording the uncolored original, with no "bottlenecks" between the capsule and the recording system.
  • The guarantee of having one of the best A/D converters available.
  • Anti-clipping processing ensures handling safety, and reduces stress.
  • Reduced time requirements and personnel costs, particularly due to faster post production processing.
  • Lower investment costs, since separate A/D converters and preamps are no longer needed. This also means space and weight savings (e.g. in the OB van).
