NOTE: Though shown together above, the KMS 105 D is NOT sold as a pair.  Each mic is available in either satin nickel (left) or matte black (right) finish.

Neumann's KMS 105 D is the transition of the well-established KMS 105 analog microphones into the digital domain.  Based on the AES42 standard, this microphone is an ideal choice for live and on-stage applications.

It provides all of the features of its analog counterpart.  Additionally, it offers the advantages of 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.

Use of one of the digital microphone interfaces together with the Remote Control Software (RCS) permits pre-programmed settings to be stored in the microphones.

Features:

  • Excellent transparency for vocals/speech
  • Cardioid/Supercardioid polar pattern with excellent feedback rejection
  • Without off-axis coloration
  • Effective pop shielding without any side effects
  • 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).
