Lewitt LCT 640 Review
When you add them all up, the LCT 640 shares many of the features of a famous microphone called the AKG C414. Besides the designer’s background as an AKG employee, we’re looking at another compact, solid-state, large-capsule condenser with multiple pickup patterns, multiple HPF frequencies and pad switching.
More significantly, though, the 640 dealt impressively with everything we threw at it – exactly what we’d expect from a C414. Without ever sounding hyped, the 640 captured detailed, natural-sounding recordings with a true sense of refinement.
There is an interesting parallel between Chinese mics and Japanese guitars. The term ‘Japanese guitar’ was often used pejoratively, but by the late 70s many players had realised that Japanese guitars were often just as good – if not superior – to their big-name counterparts. It has become apparent that the same is happening with Chinese-made mics. The Lewitt LCT 640 is obviously designed to meet the big boys head-on – and frankly, they’d better watch out. MTM
