The M50 is a pressure-type microphone with non-directional characteristics. After its introduction in 1950, the outstanding characteristics of the Neumann M50 made it a standard for the recording of symphony orchestras. A pair of M50's were famously used on one of the very first commercially available stereo recordings: 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' by Richard Strauss, released by RCA in 1954. This performance by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Fritz Reiner is still available today, although instead of open-reel tape, you can now hear the brilliance of the Neumann M50 microphone in SACD format.
