The TLM 170 i condensor microphone is the first transformerless microphone of the Neumann fet 80 series.
The self-noise level of the microphone is significantly smaller compared to similar types (14 dB-A).
The TLM 170 i is able to handle sound pressure levels to 140 dB with minimal distortion. This represents a dynamic range of 126 dB.
Five directional characteristics can be selected : omni, wide cardoid, cardoid, hypercardoid and figure-8.
Excessive output levels, caused by high sound pressure levels, may be reduced by a 10 dB attenuation slide switch, while another switch rolls off frequencies below 100 HZ to eliminate low frequency interference.
The microphone may be operated from the usual 48 V Phantom Powering circuits but will perform identically when operated from a 24 V Phantom source as well, without the need for a switchover.
