The nextel black KM 185 D NX Hypercardioid Digital Microphone with AES/EBU Output Stereo Pair from Neumann includes two hypercardioid, pressure condenser microphones with AES/EBU digital outputs and built-in A/D converters. The internal digital conversion and an AES/EBU 42 output standard allow remote software operation with the DMI-2 digital microphone interface, or direct connection to AES inputs on digital mixers, field recorders, etc.
The capsules, polar patterns and sonic characteristics are similar to the KM 185 analog model and is intended for live sound reinforcement and broadcast as well as recording applications. The hypercardioid polar pattern minimizes noise and off-axis audio signal. Vocals and instruments are captured without feedback, and ambiance. The KM 185 D features a non-reflective finish.
Note: Requires DMI-2 interface, AES/EBU or S/PDIF kit for direct connection to the digital inputs on portable recorders, mixers, computer interfaces, etc.
Hypercardioid Polar Pattern
The hypercardioid polar pattern offers greater attenuation at the off-axis sections of the microphone, resulting in a tighter pattern with even less noise caused by ambiance.
AES/EBU Digital Output
The KM 185 D features a 24-bit AES/EBU digital output stage and built-in A/D converter for direct connection to the AES/EBU inputs on field-recorders, digital mixers, or the Neumann DMI-2 direct remote control unit.
AES/EBU 42 Standard
The digital output complies with the current AES/EBU 42 standard, which allows remote powering and software remote control via the optional DMI-2 interface.
Compact Rugged Construction
The slim design and rugged construction allow easy microphone placement while remaining road worthy.
