Neumann TLM 103 Applications Due to the universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, extremely low self-noise level, and finally, the price, the TLM 103 is predestined for all demanding applications from home recording to professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios.
Application Hints: The TLM 103 will serve you well as a universal cardioid mic for recording vocals, or as the announcer's mic for broadcasting/voice over. Due to minimal self-noise, it makes an excellent on-air mic for radio/broadcast, or for recording very low amplitude sources for radio drama, foley/sound effects, or sampling applications. In home recording and project studios, it's also useful as a spot mic on wind instruments, strings, percussion, guitar amps, and drum overhead. These are just some of the most common applications. Neumann recommends additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.
Fixed Cardioid Polar Pattern The TLM 103 is equipped with a large-diaphragm capsule with a cardioid pattern. By focusing on this pattern -- 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.
Based on the K 87 Capsule from the Legendary U 87 Microphones The TLM 103 is addressed from the front, marked with the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The K 103 large diaphragm capsule is based on the K 87, well known from the U 67 / U 87 microphones. 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 head grille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. These characteristics are achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects. Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response and reproduces the finest details of music and speech without coloration.
Extremely Low Self-Noise and 131 dB Dynamic Range With just 7 dB-A / 17.5 dB CCIR the self-noise level of the TLM 103 is so reduced that even the smallest signals are reproduced basically noise-free. 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, according to DIN/IEC 651. 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.
Neumann EA 4 Elastic Shock Mount Included The entire internal construction is elastically mounted to attenuate any structure borne noise that could interfere with the TLM 103's operation. Furthermore the capsule is set on an elastic mount. The frequency range reaches below 20 Hz and thus even very low bass signals are reproduced without coloration.
