The Neumann KM 184 D is a cardioid, pressure condenser microphone with an AES/EBU digital output and built-in A/D converter. Neumann continues to make strides in microphone technology with internal digital conversion and an AES/EBU 42 output standard. The included AES/EBU connection kit allows the microphone to be connected to the AES/EBU input of portable digital recorders, field mixers, etc.
The capsule, polar pattern and sonic characteristics are similar to the KM 184 analog model and is intended for live sound reinforcement and broadcast as well as recording applications. The cardioid polar pattern minimizes noise and off-axis audio signal. Vocals and instruments are captured without feedback, and ambiance. The KM 184D features a non-reflective finish.
- S/PDIF Connection Kit
The included S/PDIF connection kit allows the microphone to be connected to the S/PDIF input of portable digital recorders, field mixers, etc. The connection kit supports 24-bit digital audio at 44.1 kHz .
- AES/EBU Digital Output
The KM 184D 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.
- Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis noise and feedback.
- Compact Rugged Construction
The slim design and rugged construction allow easy microphone placement while remaining road worthy.
