TELEFUNKEN has unveiled its AR-51 large-diaphragm, tube condenser microphone. Streeting at $1,695, the AR-51 is designed in the tradition of the classic mics of the past, utilizing the same circuit design as the classic TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251E. The new R-F-T AR-51 utilizes “only premium components,” explains the company, including a vintage New Old Stock (NOS) tube, tested for noise and microphonics, as in the ELA M 251E.
The AR-51 also features a globally sourced power supply. The circuit board has been designed for current handling, permitting the amplifier to have full access to the necessary “power on demand.”
