The Crown Audio SASS-P MKII Microphone is a stereo PZM microphone designed for classic ensemble, concerts, electronic news gathering, crowd ambiance, theater and sound effect recording. The microphone's dual capsule design features two Pressure Zone Microphones with human-head-sized spacing between them creating well focused stereo imaging without a "gap" in the middle spectrum. A foam barrier baffle located between the capsules maintain accurate focus and limits phase cancellation when switched to mono.

The SASS can be powered using 9 Volt batteries, as well as 12-48V phantom power. The SASS offers a wide frequency response of 20Hz to 18kHz and a sonic character best described as smooth and warm with emphasis on high frequencies providing an "airy" quality on output.
