Pure Neumann sound in the digital domain, for use with AES/EBU or AES 42. The signal is converted directly at the capsule. Difficult questions concerning the optimal preamp and A/D converter for a Neumann mic are thus a thing of the past.

Its 15 different remotely controlled directional characteristics and numerous additional features permit the D-01 to be optimally adapted to almost any recording situation. These comprehensive features demonstrate what can be achieved with digital microphone technology. The D-01 has a newly developed capsule, and is valued by users particularly for its hitherto unknown transparency and fidelity to detail.
