Thanks for keeping these important points in mind when ordering:

  • IMPORTANT EU VAT NOTE: From July 1st 2021, Paypal will add the relevant VAT amount at checkout, it depends on the DESTINATION country. As before, no VAT (EU sale tax) is due for customers located outside of the EU, or with a valid EU VAT N.
  • IMPORTANT BREXIT NOTE: we currently cannot process orders under 150 of declared value going into the UK.
  • IMPORTANT: Paypal decided (March 2020) that fees would not be refunded when a payment is returned/refunded to the buyer. So make sure you will not have buyer remorse if you don't want to lose around 4% on your refund... we have no power over this and cannot pay you back the Paypal fee when refunding your payment. Thanks.

Studio Condenser Microphones and Preamps:

  • Line Audio CM4:

    Small size sub-cardioid condenser microphone. The CM4 follows and replaces the recently discontinued CM3.

    Our opinion: Successor of the CM3 and still one of the most neutral microphones on the market. A must have.

    • Comparison (audio files) on Gearslutz between the CM3 and CM4: Click here
    • Full CM4 thread on Gearslutz: Click here
    • This little microphone has a natural, detailed and balanced response. Perfect for natural reproduction of acoustical instruments such as members of the bowed and plucked string-families, grand piano, brass, percussion, overhead choir and voice -with a minimum of colouration. The linear off axis performance is beneficial with large sound sources and for stereo recording, preserving sound character at an angle.
    • The CM4 is tough enough to handle drums with full depth and punch, drum overhead clearly and crisp without strain. It also handles amplified instruments well.
    • It's suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a pricetag at the hobbyist level.
    • Its very small size (about the same as a normal XLR plug) makes it easy to place, without being in the way. Its size and black colour makes it close to invisible on stage.
    • During manufacturing each capsule is measured, selected, and modified by us to close tolerances. Out of range capsules are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuitry, results in a response with a unique flatness. These are quality microphones made for demanding situations.
    • Windshield and holder/clip included (as shown).
    • Hand-Made in Sweden.
    • Specifications:

  • Line Audio Omni1:

    Small size Omnidirectional condenser microphone. Replaces the well known previous incarnation, absolutely identical technically, but renamed for legal reasons.


    Our opinion: Like the CM3, the Omni1 is extremely neutral and unique in its price range. Perfect for location recording, Classical music and also in the recording studio. Free Field/Linear response.

    • This omnidirectional microphone has a natural, detailed and balanced response.
    • Perfect for natural reproduction of acoustical instruments such as members of the bowed and plucked string-families, grand piano, brass, drum overhead, percussion, overhead choir and voice -with a minimum of colouration.
    • The response is very smooth and flat, with fine off axis performance.
    • It's suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a pricetag at the hobbyist level. The small size (about the same as a normal XLR plug) makes it easy to place, without being in the way. Its size and black colour makes it close to invisible on stage.
    • During manufacturing each capsule is measured, selected and trimmed by us to close tolerances. Out of range capsules are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuitry, results in a response with a unique flatness. These are quality microphones made for demanding situations.
    • Windshield and holder/clip included (as shown).
    • Hand-Made in Sweden.

  • Line Audio 2MP:

    2 channel / standalone Microphone Pre-amplifier.

    Our opinion: Very quiet, clean and uncoloured mic preamp offering a linearity not found in other units in its price range.

    • Based on carefully designed circuitry that ensures uncoloured and detailed audio offering higly transparent audio gain.
    • The design is DC-coupled throughout, except for the matched plastic film input capacitors and is based on a low noise, discrete, class A, matched transistor differential pair input stage, followed by low noise, low distorion O/P-amplifiers. Overall the signal path is short and audibly transparent.
    • The inputs are electronically balanced XLR microphone inputs with 48V phantom power, capable of delivering full phantomcurrent on ALL channels without the voltage "diving" or adding noise and hum. The XLR outputs are electronically balanced (with a slow DC-offset servo).
    • All XLR sockets are goldplated original Neutriks'.
    • To minimize noise and distortion and to ensure good gain-potentiometer performance the first stage has only two fixed gains with the gain-potentiometer is inserted at a later stage.
    • Hand-Made in Sweden.

  • Line Audio 8MP:

    8 channel / 1U Rack Mount Microphone Pre-amplifier.

    Our opinion: As the 2MP, but offering incredible value: 8 totally clean 60dB preamps in a 1U rack format.

    • Based on carefully designed circuitry that ensures uncoloured and detailed audio offering higly transparent audio gain.
    • The design is DC-coupled throughout, except for the matched plastic film input capacitors and is based on a low noise, discrete, class A, matched transistor differential pair input stage, followed by low noise, low distorion O/P-amplifiers.
