Question about LIN position on the U89
Author: Derek Reese
Date: 08/22/2017
Hello everyone.
I recently purchased two U89's from the 80's and 90's.
I am in love with these microphones:-)
My question is about the LIN position.
I understand the 80 and 160 filter and what it does.
But the LIN position in the manual said that it has a -6db ?
I don't know what that means because I have another switch that says -6db ?
I am quoting from the manual---

Setting the pre-attenuation
The switchable pre-attenuation increases the maximum signal level in order to avoid overload- ing when transmitting signals at extremely high sound pressure levels.
“LIN” or “–6 dB” can be selected by means of a switch on the back of the microphone.
When the “LIN” setting is used, a steep low-cut prevents the output transformer from being over- loaded by interference below the audio range.
What does LIN stand for ?
And what frequency curve does it have ?
Thank you so much, I am happy to finally be a part of the Neumann community,
Derek
