PRODUCTS Soundelux U99 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone Soundelux USA, a division of Bock Audio, has introduced the U99 multi-pattern tube microphone, which is inspired by the Neumann U67. Hand-built by David Bock, the U99 features a K67 dual symmetrical backplate dual membrane capsule along with the signature “fat” switch featured on the U195 microphone and a new high frequency “boost-flat-cut” switch. The U99 is designed to have enough proximity effect to sound full, but not so much that it sounds “boomy.” This makes it a natural on vocals, acoustic instruments, and drums thanks to an onboard pad switch. Like all Soundelux USA mics, the U99 uses a “new old stock” tube and true linear high current power supply. The electronics circuit differs from the vintage 67 in its departure from non-removable frequency shaping components and the removal of gain controlling negative feedback. It also features a larger output transformer to increase the low frequency headroom.

Each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated Class D amplifier, delivering 80 W/50 W/50 W of power per monitor. The amp features a 96 kHz/24-bit signal path and selectable input sensitivity and the same standby mode as the original LYD speakers. Also, like the other LYD monitors, the three-way version features Bass Extension, allowing for a choice between the default setting or pushing towards maximum bass or maximum volume. Switching between these modes affects the low-end response by employing a tilt, but the linear frequency response and phase remain intact.
