The Music Engineering and Technology Alliance has announced certification of the KM D series microphones, designed and manufactured by Neumann, a METAlliance Pro Partner.

The alliance is working closely with manufacturers to evaluate, recognize, and certify products which meet the call for quality in the recording arts and science.

“This is a great honor for us,” stated Robb Blumenreder, Neumann/Sennheiser Team Mgr. “The KM D Series of Solution-D microphones represents a milestone achievement in microphone technology for us at Neumann. This certification by the METAlliance certainly validates all of the hard work we put into this product.”

George Massenburg remarked, “Quiet and transparent, the KM D is one of the ‘fastest’ mics I’ve ever heard.” Al Schmitt added, “I love this mic - everything sounds so crisp and clean. I wish I had ten of them.” Chuck Ainlay stated, “Listening to this mic was a jaw dropping experience.”

The Neumann KM D microphones are the digital counterparts of the well-known, miniature microphones from the 180 Series. The microphones incorporate a patented Neumann A/D converter with a dynamic range that exceeds the capsule, thus enabling the converter to provide the audio recording system with a pure reproduction of the acoustic capsule. 

The KM D microphones are a part of the Solution-D family and have been developed in accordance with the AES standard for digital microphones (AES 42).
