Like their ancestors, the new Telefunken ELA M 250 and 251 from Telefunken Elektroakustik feature that same amplifier designed around the Telefunken AC701/k vacuum tube. Coupled with their newly manufactured CK-12 capsule [which is built from the original AKG Acoustics drawings] and the exact output transformer, custom made for us by the original manufacturer, and you have a microphone that is so amazing, you won't believe your ears.
The ELA M 250 and 251 still exhibit the same detail and presence as the ELA M 250E and 251E, yet they are slightly smoother sounding then their "E" version counterparts. This can be attributed to the AC701/k vacuum tube, which has a particularly pleasing musical quality. It has been stated by a couple of experts that the reason for this is the physical size of the tube. Since the tube is so small, it is possible to excite a lot of electrons very quickly, which contributes to the silky "top end" and slightly smoother midrange for which these microphones are known.
Both the ELA M 250 and 251 are available in very limited quantities, due to the rarity of the AC701/k tube.
