Pre-orders exceed expectations as LEWITT begins shipping most affordable condensers yet
LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR arrive in stores following extremely positive early reviews and record global pre-orders
Vienna, Austria – May 2019… Following an unprecedented surge of pre-orders, LEWITT is proud to announce the arrival of the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR in stores worldwide. As the Austrian innovator’s most affordable microphones yet, the two models have been greeted with enthusiastic early reviews since their official unveiling at January’s NAMM Show.
Encompassing a broad range of small and large-diaphragm condenser and tube microphones, the award winning LEWITT LCT series is designed to offer a truly modern alternative to older, more traditional designs. Now, for the first time, the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR are making that same level of LEWITT quality available to home studio owners wanting to record acoustic instruments.
The LCT 040 MATCH is available as a single pencil mic as well as a stereo pair package, while the LCT 140 AIR brings new levels of adaptability to instrument recordings at every level.
Among the first end-users to test the new microphones was Martin Zöscher, better known as Zed Marty from the same-titled YouTube production channel. Having trailed the LCT 040 MATCH in a stereo set-up and the LCT 140 AIR on its own with an acoustic guitar, he described himself as “blown away by the full and richly detailed sound,” adding that the “price to quality ratio is unbeatable”.
Debuting at just $99, the LCT 040 MATCH boasts a stripped-back, ergonomic design. For maximum positioning flexibility even in the most restricted spaces, it features a durable and lightweight CNC'ed aluminum housing. Inside, the custom-designed capsule is optimised with instant transient response for the natural qualities of acoustic instruments, capturing every moment in crisp detail and pleasant high-end. The LCT 040 MATCH stereo pair is available for $189, benefitting from LEWITT’s flawless matching process which extensively analyses the microphones and couples those exhibiting identical behaviour – a degree of precision not normally available at this price point.
Available at $149, meanwhile, the new LCT 140 AIR sets a new standard for high quality, affordable audio. In addition to features including exceptional off-axis sound suppression, pre-attenuation and low-cut filter, the SOUND toggle allows users to switch between AIR and FLAT. While the former delivers an open, sparkling character, the latter provides a linear frequency response for highly realistic sonic images.
“We are delighted that the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR have been greeted with so much interest and excitement,” says Roman Perschon, founder and CEO of LEWITT. “We firmly believed that the time was right to bring our design ethos and technology to a much broader audience. I’m very happy to see that our customers agree! More people than ever before are now experiencing LEWITT, and I can’t wait to hear the results.”
