1952 - The M 200 / M 201

In order to minimize the microphone's dimensions
the output transformer and some electric components
are placed outside the microphone in a black box
in line with the microphone's cable.
This results in one of the smallest microphones then available (length 140mm, diameter 23mm).

For the first time our capsules are threaded onto the amplifier part (instead of the bayonet coupling).

Left picture: The M 201 was also available with a two way capsule system, a smaller one with omni characteristic and a larger one with figure-eight pattern. By switching on or off the figure-eight one could choose the capsule over-all characteristic omni or cardioid.
