Denver-based professional audio dealer Listen Up has donated three Sennheiser MKH 800 variable-pattern condenser microphones to local public radio broadcaster KUVO 89.3 FM. They will be used on KUVO's regular live broadcasts from its performance studio, as well as remote locations.

"The reason we went with MKH 800s over a myriad potential possibilities was because we've had so much success with the first pair that we wanted to add more to our microphone locker," explained Mike Pappas, chief engineer at KUVO. "That now gives us five, allowing us to use all five for surround projects."

Pappas is a champion of the ultra-high-resolution Direct Stream Digital format and relies on the Sennheiser and Neumann microphones' reproduction and resolution almost exclusively when recording live jazz performances for broadcast and 5.1-channel Super Audio CD release. KUVO's microphone complement also includes pairs of Neumann U87ai, M147, TLM 103, KM 184 and multiple KMS 105 microphones, as well as Sennheiser MKH 20s, MKH 40s, MKH 70s and the newly added MKH 800s.

"When we sat down with KUVO," explained Listen Up VP Phil Murray, "one of the things they talked about was getting out and doing live broadcasts from a number of venues around town, so it gets us back into the heritage of our company. Most of the gear we provided will enable them to go out and do live broadcasts of national and local acts."
