Anaheim, CA (January 12, 2015)—The M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone—Telefunken Elektroakustik's first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser mic—will be debuted at NAMM.
Sporting a unique proprietary circuit topology, the microphone features components hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces in an effort to provide an ultra-clean Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20Hz to 50KHz.
The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.
Designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6X capsule systems as the ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone, the M60 FET is intended for both acoustic and percussive sources. The TK60 cardioid, TK61 omnidirectional and TK62 hypercardioid capsules are offered individually or in complete sets, as well as matched pairs of M60 FET amplifiers and capsule sets for stereo recording capabilities. The M60 FET is now shipping.
