The TLM 193 is a large diaphragm microphone manufactured by Georg Neumann GmbH from 1993 until today. It was designed as an entry level high quality microphone with a fixed cardioid pattern. It has the classic Neumann’s shape (U 89) and employs the transformer-less technology that was introduced in 1983 with the TLM 170 microphone. The transducer is the same K 89 used in both the U 89 and TLM 170 microphones. This capsule, in its small head grille arrangement derived from the U 89 and the TLM 170, exhibits virtually no off-axis sound coloration and it was developed to combine the benefits of both large and small diaphragm transducers. The cardioid pattern is the same for all frequencies. The TLM 193 has a very low self noise of 10 dB-A and manages an impressive 140 max SPL for a real 130 dB dynamic range thanks to use of the transformer-less technology. The TLM 193 doesn’t feature any switches or controls, it is simple to use and it represents an alternative choice to the more recent TLM 103, when a natural sound tone is desired. The TLM 193 is an high quality choice for multi-miking orchestra recording, voice dubbing and speech, as well as for instrument miking when natural color-free sound is required.
