Good

12.09.2016
So first I would like to say that I am not a professional engineer. But have already made a pair of recordings (guitars, voices, balalaika, drums, bass). At home with Rode NTK Neumann KMS, AKG Groove pack, Sennheiser 421 (simply by x32 rack in Logic). In Studios Neumann TLM 103. Of course Shure SM 57 guitar.

Now I wanted to upgrade my sound and bought me UA LA 610 and here at Thomann Telefunken AR 51 (including Vovox cables).

To the micro. I must say sounds very good, makes bold particularly semi prof. Voices or women's voices that do not sing so loudly. You can change a lot of the sound by trying different positions and characteristics. For acoustic instruments, very good bass and brilliant highs. You do not have to spin much on the EQ. I like that very much! Noise is OK but not less than at Rode NTK.

Now I come to the point of criticism. PROCESSING IS BAD !!! And so badly that I almost sent it back. Works like cheap China stuff! Rode NTK is much better built, but costs four times less. With Neumann I would not even compare with even the cheapest of it! If not over 2000¤ then that would be ok but it is almost like an eaves after unpacking especially the spider, for this I would not even give 20¤. This really looked so that one would not want to connect, after the Otto something which looks so can not sound good. I had to really fight the first 30 min. But then connected and it really sounds much better than Rode and Neumann TLM 103. Together with LA 610 you can do a lot. It also has character and does not sound "Like All Others" (recorded with Neumann). And that's what I wanted!

I hope very much that the micro holds! Otherwise, I'm first satisfied.

Watch out! Sound perception is subjective.

Malfunction ?

Numan, 11.11.2016
Either this product is defective or the sound is very bad.

The sound is very clear, but the discoloration is extreme. Had also the other model by telephone, which is about 150 cheaper. World difference between the two.

I have tested this microphone with Focusrite Iso One Preamp and definitely no recommendation.
(Unless the product I got was broken?!)

Sorry that I had to rate it so badly however the AR-51 version is nothing compared to the other Telefunken microphones. (The others have received 5 stars from me)
