Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

The MTP 540 DM is Lewitt’s flagship dynamic vocal microphone, intended for applications in the studio, on stage, or in the broadcast industry. It has a fixed Cardioid pickup pattern.

The mic’s frequency response is nominally flat from 100Hz to 1kHz, with a smooth +5dB presence peak at 3–4kHz. The high-frequency response drops rapidly above 15kHz.

Lewitt Audio MTP 540 DMThe dynamic (moving-coil) capsule is elastically shockmounted within the body, to reduce handling noise.

The mic uses an output transformer.

Two versions of the microphone are available:

  • MTP 540 DM - no switch
  • MTP 540 DMs - Includes on/off switch on mic body

Lewitt Audio MTP 540 DMsBoth versions are packaged identically: the mics ship in a padded cardboard box, with a mic clip (Lewitt p/n MTP 40 MCs) and a leather storage pouch (p/n DTP 40 Lb).

The 540 DM and DMs are covered by a 5-year warranty.

The Lewitt Audio MTP 540 DM is also known as: MTP 540 DMS.

The mic was released in 2010.
