Wunder Audio CM7 FET Suprema is a phantom powered version of the original U47.
The original goal with a phantom powered mic was to bypass the need for a tube
PSU. One shortcoming of the U47 FET was that the design technology of the
1960’s FET transistor was in its infancy and the end result was not always
Wunder Audio CM7 FET Suprema has improved this design with modern upgrade that
employs an ultra low noise single n-channel transistor with JFET technology
coupled with a Neve 1073 style mic pre transformer. The results are stunning
and the performance of this mic greatly surpasses the original, yielding better
low-lows and highs. This a workhorse studio mic for all sources, especially
vocals, making it reminiscent to a 1970’s era U87!
the exact replica of the original grille is one of the key aspects of achieving
the correct performance of this mic.
Wunder Audio CM7FET S Grille is true to vintage with three gauges of grill mesh
at the head grille: an outer large mesh, an inner medium mesh, and a fine mesh
that is sandwiched in between.
Wunder Audio Suprema Grille has acoustic interplay with the capsule, having the
electronic properties of a faraday cage. This proper vintage mesh gauge is not
the readily available metric gauge and is vastly important for the legendary
sound of a U47.
Wunder Audio CM7 FET Suprema K47 capsule includes a one-piece back plate dual
Membrane Capsule. The diaphragms are tuned individually and then matched
for equivalent response.
were several different versions of the original Neumann K47 capsule. The
earlier versions, circa 1960-66, had either brass or fiber diaphragm rings and
the later versions, 1966 onwards, were made with white plastic diaphragm rings,
which actually were better at isolating the diaphragm from the backplate
took this approach one step further with a modern upgrade by utilizing a white
porcelain ringed K47 in our capsule. Our porcelain has low permeability and
elasticity, considerable strength, hardness, resonance, and a high resistance
to chemical attack and thermal shock, improving on the white plastic rings used
on the original K47; which were prone to discoloring, becoming soaked with
impurities over the years and affected its electrical resistance thus creating
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 changing 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.
