Neumann announced the winner of its Sound Engineering Contest 2003 at the company's recent 75th anniversary celebrations. The winner, Gabriel Schmitt of Porto Alegre, Brazil, was flown to Berlin and presented with the first prize: a chrome-plated M 149 Tube stereo set.

Neumann launched the Sound Engineering Contest in March as part of a variety of activities designed to celebrate the company's 75th anniversary. The 75-question multimedia contest, available on CD-ROM, was divided into six sections that focused on microphones, recording technology, instruments and music history. Contestants worldwide could choose the three sections in which they felt most confident.

Second and third prizes, a Jubilee Edition U 87 Ai stereo set with sequential serial numbers and a stereo set of the award-winning TLM 103 studio microphone, respectively, went, respectively, to Andreas Lassak and Christian Eller, both from Germany. Continuing the 75th anniversary theme, prizes including T-shirts, posters and a few surprises were awarded to the top 75 contestants. All participants were additionally entered into a drawing, with each of the three winners receiving an award-winning KMS 105 vocal mic.

Neumann has released an updated version of the quiz at; the contest is also available on the new Neumann product catalog CD-ROM.
