u87Ai +20dB

i 've tested the an '72 u87i and a 2010 u87Ai and the new one was +20dB louder is this normal?

I've observed a 10dB difference between a few vintage ones and a couple of AIs so yes and no - I haven't seen 20dB but the AIs are definitely hotter.

Most likely the high demand for louder recording. Or, it’s hotter but capturing more detail. I’ll contact Neumann and ask.
