The latest addition to TL Audio’s Ivory 2 Series is the 5000 Valve Condenser Microphone and Preamp, which starts shipping this September.

The microphone comes with its own matched power supply and preamp unit; boasts a 1-inch, dual gold diaphragm; and offers nine variable patterns, including omni, cardioid and figure-8, along with six intermediate stages. Both low-cut filter and 10dB pad switches are also provided on the microphone, and an elastic suspension mount and foam windshield are supplied as standard.

The 5000 microphone comes with TL Audio’s matching power supply and preamp, which allow users to benefit from a first-class, discrete mic preamp stage. The power supply’s output includes the heater and 200-volt DC supply for the microphone’s internal 12AT7 triode valve, while the preamp stage offers control of input and output gain, phase reverse and output level metering. The preamp provides a balanced line-level output on XLR, although this output can also be switched to bypass the preamp stage.

A separate monitor output is provided on 1/4-inch jack, and the optional DO-2 digital output card can be fitted, providing a 24-bit S/PDIF output switchable between 44.1 and 48 kHz, along with an external wordclock input. "Link In" and "Link Out" sockets on the preamp allow a stereo pair of mics to be set up and outputted digitally on a single DO-2 card.
