The Telinga Stereo MK3 omnidirectional microphone - the latest version of the famous industry standard Telinga Stereo DAT microphone.

Telinga Sweden introduced the first commercially available parabolic microphone in stereo 1986 already, with the concept of recording the focus of the parabolic dish in mono and presenting the ambience in stereo.

Photo 1. The Telinga Stereo MK3 microphone has 8 microphone elements, located in 2 pairs (L/R) separated by a 4,5" plate. The mono signal from the parabolic dish will affect all the microphones equally while the ambience will be recorded in stereo. This proven and unique Telinga concept gives you a natural recording with very low noise that also withstands very high SPL (Sound Pressure Level). The result is a rich sound with very little distortion for an omni microphone.

Photo 2. Pair the Stereo MK3 microphone with your choice of handle and dish, either the PRO-X for Plug-In-Power 3,5 mm minjack or PRO-9 handle +48V XLR (coming soon) for a complete ready to record system. When a new version of the microphone, handle or dish is available you can upgrade or purchase these parts separately, thus you do not have to buy a new complete model or bring several parabolas when recording. 

Photo 3&4. You may easily fold the Telinga V2 Dish and pack your complete Telinga system (handle, microphone, and dish) in the Telinga Soft Case with some padding in between. The complete assembly of a Telinga system is done within minutes without any complicated instructions.
