Neumann 008522 (008-522, 008/522, 00-85-22, 008 522) (KM-183-stereo set, KM/183/stereo set, KM183stereo set) KM 183 stereo set Omnidirectional Digital Microphone (Nickel) 

The Neumann KM183 Stereo Set is a matched, stereo pair of KM 183 omni-directional microphones in nickel, two Stand mount swivels SG 21/17 mt, two windscreens WNS 100 and a robust wooden storage box. The KM 183 has a slender shape and advanced transmission characteristics that make it especially suitable for a very wide range of tasks in the radio and television sector, as well as recording applications.

The KM 183 microphone is the successor of the well proven KM 83, which has been used since the seventies worldwide with great success. The KM 183 is an omni-directional pressure transducer with a boost of approximately 7 dB at 10 kHz in the free field. In the diffuse sound field it has a flat frequency response. Transformerless circuitry and balanced output result in high output gain with a very low noise floor and no colouration to the output signal.

The microphone operates without any problems, even if the input of following equipment happens to be unbalanced, for example as in some DAT/CF recorders. The output of the KM 183, as in all Neumann microphones, is balanced and phantom (48V) powered. The KM 183 mt stereo set is ideal for X,Y (with cardioid mic and baffle plate) stereo miking, ambiance miking or spot miking instruments such as piano, wind instruments organ and choir.
