The Neumann TLM 103 has quickly become one of the biggest successes in Neumann’s history. Its pristine, clear sound is a modern update on the classic U87. The TLM 103 is a transformerless cardioid condenser microphone with a gentle presence boost for a stunningly direct sound with breathtaking definition and ultra low noise.

Neumann TLM 102 vs Neumann TLM 103 vs AKG C414


I have a small home studio and I am looking to purchase my first high end mic. It will be running directly into the preamps on my Apogee Duet interface. I will use it mainly for recording my Taylor GS5 and Vocals and will occasionally use it for piano as well. I have about 1000$ to spend and I am looking for the best mic.

Neumann TLM 103d


Wow, I had no idea until I saw this clip. Neumann TLM 103d ... add a starter kit (ad da converter, limiter and compressor) and S/PDIF or AES into your DAW. I didn't hear him talk about a mic preamp? Is this all combined into the mic?
I didn't realize there was a bottleneck that happened with analog/mics that was anything to be concerned about?

Using Neumann TLM 103 D (Solution-D) with Digi 002


Hi there!

Has any one tested Newmann's TLM 103 D (Solution-D) microphone with the Digi 002. Please let me know how you have tested/ set it up.

Please explain what are the options in connecting the Mic with Digi? and which one is best for quality. It looks like AES 42 receiver is required between the Mic & Mixer/Digi 002.

Compatable with PT HD/LE/MP V7.3 or higher

Neumann TLM-103 or RODE K2?


my price range is around $700-$800 and i am looking for either of these or any mic in this price range used. i run a small home studio right now in my home and i am looking to finally step into the world of owning a good large diaphragm mic for vocals. i use a KSM32 right now and i personally think its too multi-functional for really good vocals.
