Neumann's new TLM 49 not quite killer value

Neumann USA has finally introduced the new 49 large-diaphragm cardioid studio microphone modelled on the classic Neumann M 49 and M 50 microphones of the '50s. The TLM 49 is being claimed to combine "Neumann's esteemed engineering and precision manufacturing to produce an innovative transformerless microphone that is optimised for that very special, warm, Neumann vocal sound".

The retro look, Neumann's proven transformerless circuitry technology, claimed low self-noise, high-gain levels, and promise of a great sound are expected to make the TLM 49 yet another hit, though with an MSRP of US$1,699.99, it's gonna have many home recordists weeping in dismay! More
