High End FET Mic
Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema microphone is the solid-state version of the CM50
Suprema. It comes with the very same spherical capsule as employed in the
successful CM50 Tube Mic.
Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema tube microphone is true to vintage using an
original Neumann style M50 spherical capsule. The Wunder Audio CM50 FET S has
an incredible lineage; its predecessor, the CM50 FET, has been used worldwide
in Decca trees for recording the soundtracks for many of the major motion
pictures produced today. The CM50 FET version is widely used by scoring
engineer Shawn Murphy and Tom Steel among others at most of the sound stages in
Los Angeles including; the Newman Scoring Stage 20th Century Fox, Sony Scoring
Stage, Culver City and other top scoring stages worldwide including Abbey road!
Main left-right usage of the CM50 FET include; Star Wars: Episode VII – The
Force Awakens, the Hobbit film series, Harry Potter and Marvel films. The new
CM50 FET Suprema is one step up from this already perfect mic.
CM50 FET S is the best available microphone for orchestral recordings because
it has a response that rises slightly and it becomes increasingly more
directional at higher frequencies when exposed to direct sound, but it remains
flat in a diffused sound field.
addition to being the perfect microphone for soundtrack recordings, the CM50
FET Suprema is definitely an important mic when recording drums and capturing
the room sound, giving the instrument volume and depth. Once you try this out
on drums, you will never want to record without it, as the drums sound flat
without the CM50 FET Suprema. “Simply one of the most wonderful sounding
room mics in the world. It is a must for huge drum sounds!”
CM50 FET S has a slanted grille to limit the effect of grille resonance on the
response. Because the grille is slanted and presents a continuously varying
profile to the capsule, there are fewer standing waves generated. This gives
the most natural sound obtainable my any microphone. Very pure and pleasantly
warm. The size of the grille forms a larger-volume enclosure giving the capsule
more breathing room and contributing to its openness.
every way the Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema grille is true to vintage and
identical to the original M50. It has been used as historical replacement parts
on the vintage M50s.
Audio CM50 FET Suprema incorporates an audiophile grade MOSFET circuit.
Sonically, the MOSFETs enhance low-level detail retrieval and provide a
startling improvement in low noise performance, adding a sense of purity on
vocals and strings thought to be impossible in transistor amplification. There
is also a sense of linearity that allows the microphone to maintain consistency
of clarity and tonal balance from low to high levels, so there is no more
confusion and congestion when the volume is pushed. The staging, depth
retrieval and the overall presentation takes on just the right balance of
airiness and bloom.
CM50 Suprema uses the same M9 capsule as the historic M50. Neumann went through
several materials for their diaphragm, starting with PVC which quickly became
too brittle, then went to aluminum which was difficult to tension correctly.
For a brief period nickel was used and finally the decision was to use Mylar,
as in the KM 83.
have successfully recreated the small pressure transducer, similar to the
capsule for the KM series microphones, embedded in the surface of a 40 mm
diameter Lucite sphere. By mounting the miniature capsule in the large Lucite
sphere all standing waves larger than 40 mm are eliminated thus canceling out
proximity effect. No other microphone set to Omni can achieve the naturalness
of the CM50 S sound. The inspiration is classic, the execution is cutting-edge.
optimized our passive components to achieve a true audiophile performance.
While high-fidelity equipment is usually referred to at the end of the chain in
recording, we feel that it is equally important all the way through; to be able
to listen to the best possible recording, you must be able to record that sound
with minimal amounts of noise and distortion and an accurate frequency. We’ve
enhanced to our true to vintage microphones by doubling the value of the
capacitors resulting in a lower corner frequency for a modern-vintage sound
where the spectrum opens up, adding emphasis to the sound staging and creates a
greater sense of air and transparency, without the impression of a diminished
mid and lower-end response. The outcome is a less grainy and a much more fluid
sound. The focus is tighter and sharper.
