Neumann - who are famous for producing some of the best studio microphones bar none have just announced that they will be taking over the tracking/mixing end of monitor design and production for Klein and Hummel. (K&H presumably will continue to produce and brand their own mastering monitors like the 0300, 0400 and 0500 series.) Neumann and K&H have both been part of the Sennheiser group for a few years.

First will be a two way near field up date of the K&H110d. It's set to retail for 'less than 650 Euros' and is aimed at the upper end of the prosumer/home studio market. Anyone looking for near field's in this price range should probably check it out as the K&H 110 were good and Neumann say they have improved on it.

Neumann have also announced that they're manufacturing a new digital mic interface, the DMI8. This will connect 8 digital mics via AES42 to digital AES/EBU or ADAT. Upto 16 DMI8's can be daisy chained as well.

Thanks for the info Tony. The Neuman mics have always impressed me. Even some of the lower end mics they make sound better than many vendors top of the line product. They are usually a bit out of my project studio price range, but any time I go "in the studio" I always request their best Neuman. Some engineers don't like you to use on your guitar cab of course, but once you tell them you don't plan to play at full volume it's usually ok. I can't blame them though, the idea of baking a pricey mic with loud guitar cab would make me twitchy too.

Todd

NP Todd.

BTW - first pro recording studio I worked in way back we used to use Neumanns regularly to record electric guitar as the U87i seemed to work particularly well as a distance mic with them usually with a standard SM58 close to the speaker. The chief engineer used to tell us to use them as just leaving them sitting in the mic store was a waste of money. IME they're no where near as fragile as some people think cool.gif. First couple of radio broadcast stations I worked in all used Neumanns as well.

Very interesting news, especially about the mic interface. Wonder what will be price/performance. Neumann is standard for high end here also, we recorded vocals on one of them for our album and they sounded awesome.
