A professional, flexible work-horse microphone for capturing stereo or mono signal, the Sanken CSS-5 is an industry favorite for television, film, concert recording, sound design and much more. The flexibility of the CSS-5 lies withing it's ability to capture in Normal (stereo), Mono and Wide (stereo) modes.

The accurate, transparent signal reproduction is based on an array of five new directional condenser elements, with new PPS (Poly-Phenylene-Sulfide) diaphragms to provide optimum humidity / temperature stability. The CSS-5 is equally responsive in the horizontal and vertical planes with high sensitivity, wide frequency response and excellent dynamic range. The CSS-5 is small and lightweight with switchable mono / stereo functions. The standard 19mm diameter permits use of a wide range of accessories developed for enhanced performance and field mobility.
