Telefunken Elektroakustik ELA-M 270 – No Longer Available

Large diaphragm stereo microphone
MFR# ELA M 270

Product Description

One of the rarest microphones made by the original Telefunken GmbH was the stereo Telefunken ELA M 270. Serial number 101 was discovered in the early 1980's in Europe and brought to the shores of America where it lived in Ocean Way Studios for many years as the crowned jewel in their world famous microphone collection.

Telefunken Elektroakustik obtained this extraordinary piece of recording technology in order to recreate the design and offer it to the recording industry. Today, the original ELA M 270 resides at Blackbird studios in Nashville, but thanks to Telefunken Elektroakustik, you can have your very own.

Essentially a stereo version of the ELA M 251E, the ELA M 270 is available on a very limited, custom ordered basis, for the most discriminating of audio recordists.

The ELA M 251E is widely revered as a benchmark of hi-fidelity recording technology, and our ELA M 270 offers the same exceptional sonic performance in a stereo package. Perfectly suited for XY, M/S, or Blumlein techniques. Each capsule of the ELA M 270 offers selectable cardioid, bidirectional, or omni polar patterns.

Each Telefunken ELA M 270 stereo microphone is made to order. Exact custom matching of each component and capsules assures optimal stereo performance. Plus, utilizing either output of the microphone yields the same exceptional results as our Telefunken ELA M 251E.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
