The TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251 amplifier circuit was originally built to satisfy the standardized requirements of the German and Austrian national broadcast systems after World War II. Featuring the AC701 tube, a small triode vacuum tube known for producing a very rich and opulent tone with exceptionally low self-noise and microphonics, the ELA M 251 has achieved legendary stature in the modern recording industry.
The new TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251 includes an edge terminated, dual backplate CK12 capsule capable of cardioid, omnidirectional, and biirectional polar patterns and a European made Haufe 14:1 ratio output transformer (the same design found in the AKG Acoustics GmbH C-12). Each reissue is 100% true in every detail to the original [the parts are interchangeable with the 50+ year old originals], and will deliver the same sonically opulent response that made the ELA M 251 one of the world’s most sought after recording tools.
