Neumann TLM 107
Presented by the TEC Foundation, the TEC Awards honor product innovation and sound production. The awards will be presented during the 2015 NAMM Show in January.
The nominations, based on product entries by audio manufacturers, were made by a panel of 130 professionals in numerous audio specialties. Products and projects released and in commercial use during the period of Sept. 1, 2013 to Aug. 31, 2014, were eligible.
The TLM 107 is a high-resolution sound transducer with reproduction characteristics that enable it to capture the original sound without coloration, ensuring design freedom in mixing and post-production. The double diaphragm capsule is inspired by one of Neumann''s the D-01.
All of the TLM 107s switching functions are managed through a wear-resistant navigation switch. The operating concept includes an illuminated pattern display in the chrome ring, with the Pad and Low Cut status LEDs positioned to the left and right. After 15 seconds, the display is turned off automatically.
The KH 120 D is designed for tracking, mixing and mastering. Utilizing acoustic and electronic simulation technologies, the KH 120 D ensures accurate sound reproduction. Equipped with an additional BNC input for AES/EBU or S/P-DIF formats (24-bit/192 kHz), the KH 120 D enables seamless digital workflow.
The KH 120 D also features digital delay for both analog and digital inputs, enabling the monitor to be used for demanding tasks requiring time alignment. With a maximum delay of over 400 ms, the KH 120 D is able to seamlessly address audio/video synchronization issues or manage time delay compensation.
