Meet The WA-14:
Warm Audio has once again made a staple available for engineers of all budgets. The WA-14 is a faithful recreation of AKG’s 414. With a custom capsule, a Cinemag USA output transformer, and a fully discrete signal path, the WA-14 is an honest, well-researched recreation with all of the smooth highs, and rounded lows of the early AKGs. Polar patterns and output pads are included to match the original design, which provides flexibility, and the ability to capture any sound the way you want to.

Warm Audio has designed their original WA-12-B-60V dual-diaphragm capsule, with a 24k gold sputtered diaphragm, made to recreate and do justice to the 414’s original CK-12 capsule. It is all-brass and edge-terminated. It also has four-wire termination, which allows a figure of eight polar pattern. Created to match the richness and non-fatiguing sound of 414s, it is an impressive and accurate recreation which provides excellent sound on almost anything you put in front of it.
