More realism or rather more character in the reproduction? Normally a question such as this implies a choice between two completely different microphones. This question is no problem for the VMA, it unites these two basic sound characters in one. Through simple switching, you can select between the very natural transparent sound of the VM1 or the markedly full character sound of the VMX, thus you actually have two different Brauner microphones in one single body enabling in essence the sound of a VM1 or a VMX.
In the development of the VMA, valuable feedback and input on the tonal qualities of the microphone from some of the world?s most highly regarded sound engineers was incorporated. The VMA thereby represents the essence of more than 10 years experience with our flagship model, the VM1. Paired with the possibility of switching to the VMX mode, the VMA is an outstanding achievement in tube microphone design. The adjustments of the directional characteristics, as in the VM1, are infinite and therefore enable superior flexibility.
The VMA marks a milestone in modern microphone technology.
