Neumann KM100 and KA100

Is the LC3 the right cable for this? And can they still be purchased?

There are two types of Neumann LC3 cables terminating in different connectors on the mic body (amplifier) side - one is a lemo connector that mates with the KA100 adapter and the other one that screws directly on to the KM100 body.

I forget what nomenclature differentiates the two...

Search is our friend.

Might be your friend, not mine. I suck at searching. But thanks, that’s the info I was looking for.

So anyone still sell these cables?

Last time I checked, both versions of these cables could still be ordered from Sennheiser, but that was a couple of years ago.

Thanks! I’ll look into it.

I still haven't seen these for sale for a while.  I'd follow David's advice and call Sennheiser USA.  As far as I know B&H doesn't even sell the newer LC 3 KA anymore.  They would probably just special order it from Senny USA.

For what it is worth, the attached picture includes the TWO pieces that you need to construct a complete [older] active cable.  The part on the right is the KA 100 and attaches to the mic body and the part on the left is the LC 3 that attaches to the mic capsule.  Connect the two together with the Lemo connectors.

In a different generation of these accessories, the part that screws on to the amplifier/body (KA 100) was a solid piece with the Lemo socket built directly into it. I currently have a pair of those for sale in the Yard Sale, with a different photo from the one shown here; the photo here shows what was then called simply the LC 3 (= the capsule end of this arrangement plus the extension cable itself) with one of this type of KA 100.
