Yes. I have one of these mics supplied with my new Uher 4000 Report L reel-to-reel tape recorder beloved of the BBC and many other brodcasting companies. I saw a whole cabinet of these recorders in the control room of Radio Bucharest in 1992! Further information for this microphone

BTW - someone removed the original DIN plug and I would dearly like to know which coloured wire goes to which pin! Radiomuseum says which pin is which but not which colour of the mic cable. The Circuit Diagram of the Recorder shows: Pin1 n/c:Pin2 Gnd:Pin3 live/Signal:Pin4 Remote Control socket:Pin5 Gnd. The colours are: White:Brown:Dark Green:Light Green and Yellow:Screen. Could you look in your DIN plug and advise? Michael

Just got a UHER M514 and stumbled across this post. If you're still looking for an answer, white is pin4, yellow is pin 2, blue is pin 5 and red is pin 3, then you have the shield and nothing on pin 1.
I'm myself trying to figure how to adapt it to XLR...

Uher M 514 > 517 pin connexion

Uher M 514 to 517

Pin1 n/c:nothing
Pin2 Ground : yellow + cold signal = colorless
Pin3 hot Signal : red
Pin4 Remote Control socket : white
Pin5 Remote Control socket : blue

M = Musik = Music (more bass response)
S = Sprache = Speech (cut the bass response)

514>516 : mechanical (open a rear hole for music / close a rear hole = cut the bass response - for speaking ;
70 Hz to 14 kHz.
optically, the capsule is the same from 514 to 516.
no vibration isolation

517 : idem , but electronically, with a capacitor ;
80 Hz to 15 kHz,
0.28 mV,
600 ohm
vibrations isolated by elastic mount

hope this help
