Why the DA 87 sounds like the real thing.
In order to achieve the most faithful vintage
sound, the DA 87 uses the highest quality
materials throughout, including components from
Vishay, WIMA, Panasonic, and more.
Authentic output transformer.
Our all-new custom-wound DA-BV13 output
transformer was developed specifically for our DA
87. With a high nickel core and authentic 9.5:1
winding, the DA-BV13 delivers exceptional
bandwidth and low phase-shift.
Old is new again.
The original, vintage U87i is one of the most sought
after studio microphones of all time.
However, a used U87i can sell for over $4,000, often
in poor condition, and can be over 50 years old.
If you're after the sound of the original Neumann U87i
from the 60s and 70s, we think you'll absolutely love
the DA 87.
