The standout qualities of the new CM7 Suprema passive electronics are their extraordinarily direct low-end responsiveness and wide high-end plateau. Combine this with an audiophile PSU and you’ll hear both the best qualities of a modern microphone and the legendary sound of a vintage microphone. The CM7 S is exceptional as a vocal mic as well it being an excellent choice for drums, acoustic guitars, and piano. The CM7 S is a serious pro-studio workhorse because it has a very nice top and bottom, and brings out a natural sound from any source.
Our Wunder Audio CM7 S Grille is true to vintage with three gauges of grill mesh at the head grille: an outer large mesh, an inner medium mesh, and a fine mesh that is sandwiched in between. The Wunder Audio Suprema Grille has acoustic interplay with the capsule, having the electronic properties of a Faraday cage. This proper vintage mesh gauge is not the readily available metric gauge and is vastly important for the legendary sound of a U47.
The diaphragm in our M7 capsule is stretched and glued to the rim, akin to how a snare drum head is stretched over a rim, and never screwed to the backplate.
We’ve put a modern upgrade to the original vintage NOS Telefunken EF14 tube to achieve the same specs as the VF14. Our NOS tubes were made in Berlin or Ulm Germany during the same production run as the original VF14’s.
We’ve optimized our passive components to achieve a true audiophile performance. While audiophile equipment is usually referred to at the end of the chain in recording, we feel that it is most important that the first link in the recording chain, the microphone, be the best attainable.
The transformer inside the CM7 Suprema is a historic recreation of the early transformers used in the exceedingly rare early “Large Badge” U47s. It contains the exact vintage Mu-Metal as these early Berlin U47 transformers and is wound to the original Braunbuch specifications using NOS (new old stock) laminations.
The new generation tube Microphone PSU is proprietary to Wunder Audio and is an upgrade from the vintage tube mic PSU’s used for the 1960’s era Neumann design. Our upgrade gets a clean and stable DC voltage to the mic and shields the influx of Wi-Fi and RF interference with 100 percent reliability.
Box and Carrying Case
Your Wunder Audio CM7 S is nestled in velvet and softly secured in place in a foam-lined quarter sawn oak box that is clasped and hinged. This box then is safely encased in a precision velvet-lined thick foam tweed case that also holds your PSU, your shock mount, and your cables. The tweed carrying case is a work of art in itself; it uses the same Fender tweed found in a vintage Fender guitar case which amplifies the vintage period of the vintage-style CM7 S microphone, and it is trimmed with top grain leather and fine stitching. The CM7 S case has a strong leather handle and combination lock to keep your mic secure. This case can be sold separately.
