XLR connector as all models ending neumann not the letter "i"
K47 capsule, transformer output, P48V.
neumann microphone located in the time between a U47 and TLM170,
Cash heavy pressure, SNR less efficient than a TLM 170 that it has no output transformer.
The sound is epai U47 FET, with a very pronounced proximity effect, a generous bass response, with very good depth perception and distance traveled by the wave, you feel the sound move, wander through a tom , a kick in the back of a guitar.
In the U47 fet microphone singing can be very convincing, however, attention to the distance, the timbral signature depends greatly restored, more than other brand models (U87, TLM170)
micro very "rock folk, blues, I love to many sources: bass drum, bass drum, double bass with a bow, some acoustic guitar softly played (since it is no longer supported, I prefer a ribbon) resumption guitar amp, bass amp, voice, sax, trombone, horn,
he needs a good pre amp that cash, beefy and not blowing too, so I like the 47 with the fet neve 1073 or crane song flamingo.
is a micro seriously impressive with a beautiful signature sound, a standart since the mid 70's, nothing to do with the current philosophies: (circuit without transformer, microphone body light and resonant, fragile) it's all here Conversely, it's solid, one for insurance to use a real tool, mine (the one pictured) dates from 1980 and works great, I do not know how sound a neumann present in 30 years !! already today ......................
