The Neumann KM 183 Stereo Set consists of two KM 183 microphones, two stand mount swivels and two windscreens in a wooden box. The microphone has a frequency-independent omnidirectional polar pattern for both studio and stage applications. This non-modular, pressure condenser microphone provides a wide pickup angle and a flat frequency response in the diffuse field.

Expanded Neumann KM 183 stereo set Key Features:

Wide Range of Applications

The KM 183 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone with a frequency-independent omnidirectional polar pattern. It is ideal for both in-studio and on-stage use. Various applications like broadcasting, live applications, and recordings can use the KM 183 set with the included swivels and windscreens. It produces a transparent sound which is ideal for acoustic instruments such as piano, drums, percussion, acoustic guitar, brass, choir and other instruments where sonic authenticity is required. Its high SPL capability and low-frequency response further expand the field of possible applications.

Omnidirectional Condenser Capsule

The omnidirectional pickup pattern of the microphone is uniform and frequency-independent. As there is no distortion in the resulting sound, it becomes extremely useful in multi-microphone setups and stereo/surround imaging. When near the sound source, the microphone offers a treble boost of approximately 7 dB at 10 kHz and the pressure-transducer capsule is equalised for flat frequency response. This carefully designed microphone maintains the capsule’s sonic integrity and thus, suits well for applications where sonic authenticity is of utmost importance.

Output Stage

Due to the microphone’s low impedance output stage, it can transmit output signals over long cables, running up to a distance of 300 metres. The long-distance transmission of signals does not disrupt the sound quality and features no losses of distortion. The transformer-less circuitry ensures a balanced output and high-gain output signal. The wide frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz provides flexible use of the microphone for recording sessions. It can handle enormous sound pressure levels of up to 140 dB, without any distortion, and can be used for close-miking of various instruments.

Which all accessories are compatible with the kit?

Various accessories can be used with the kit such as a microphone cable, different types of mounts, a table stand, an auditorium hanger, a power supply, a pop screen and many more. Two accessories are already included in this stereo set – windscreens and swivel mounts. Long cables of up to a distance of 300 metres can be used to transmit lossless signals.

Can it be used for live applications?

The condenser microphones are ideally used for studio recordings, but the KM 183 is designed to cover all microphone uses such as broadcasting, live music reinforcements, and studio recordings.

How much does it weigh?

The microphone has a slim design and rugged construction for seamless on-stage use. It can capture voice and speech on stage and weighs only 80 grams.

Which all acoustic instruments is this microphone compatible with?

The transparent and natural sound reproduction enables you to use the microphone for acoustic instruments such as a piano, drums, percussion, choir, brass, acoustic guitar, strings and others where it is necessary to maintain the sonic integrity.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
