Highlights on display from Neumann include the U 87 Rhodium Edition microphone and the KH 80 DSP monitor loudspeaker in a new white version. For Sennheiser, the focus will be on its groundbreaking AMBEO 3D audio recording technologies, presenting the AMBEO VR microphone for producing 3D VR/AR audio and the renowned MKH 800 TWIN recording microphone for loudspeaker-reproduced 3D audio. The audio specialist will also host and participate in a series of demonstrations and panels on immersive audio.

Neumann U 87 Rhodium Edition
The U 87 Rhodium Edition was created to honor the 50th anniversary of the classic microphone’s release. Limited to only 500 units worldwide, this premium microphone is plated with rhodium, a material rarer than gold and more reflective than any other metal. Each of the meticulously crafted microphones is individually numbered with a certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Wolfgang Fraissinet, President, Neumann.Berlin.

The joint Sennheiser and Neumann booth will also showcase the full line of microphones and monitors for professional studios and home recording use. Neumann microphones on display will include the U 87 ai, U 47 FET, TLM 67, TLM 102, TLM 103, TLM 107, M 147 Tube, M 149 Tube, KM 184 A, and the KU 100 dummy head.

The MKH 800 TWIN features a dual-capsule design, which allows its pick-up pattern to be remotely controlled at the mixing desk or via a dedicated MKH 800 TWIN plug-in for DAWs, seamlessly allowing any intermediate characteristic. The free plug-in also allows easy management of multiple TWIN microphones for 3D audio recording.
