Not many churches have their own FM classical music station and Internet stream. St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, a historic and cultural centerpiece of the city, does have its own station, Radio Stephansdom. Much of the programming for the station originates live from the cathedral.
To get that programming on the air or recorded, the cathedral’s audio engineers have turned often to Austrian microphone manufacturer AKG. according to the manufacturer In the cathedral’s mic cabinet are C414TLII, C414 ULS, C414XLS, C451B, C460B, CK47, CK61ULS, CK62DF, CK62ULS, CK63ULS, GN30 and SE300B mics from AKG, along with many AKG capsules and wireless microphone systems.
Martin Macheiner, technical director for Radio Stephensdom, is quoted by AKG praising the mics for their warmth and cleanliness, “particularly for the strings.” He added that the AKG mics “provide the highest quality of broadcast.”
