Senal MC5-MS Overview

  • 1Description

The Senal MC5-MS is a dual-channel stereo condenser microphone offering a realistic, phase-accurate stereo image for accurate capture of dialog and environment sounds in ENG, interviews, documentaries, and various video production scenarios. Featuring two highly sensitive electret condenser elements arranged in an X/Y configuration, the MC5-MS is well suited for stereo and mono recording, and boasts a frequency response of 80 Hz to 20 kHz when used in stereo (or 70 Hz to 20 kHz in mono). Each microphone element outputs to a Neutrik 3-pin XLR connector, making it an ideal mate for XLR-equipped camcorders capable of providing 40 to 52 VDC phantom power.

The compact, shotgun-style body is designed to stay out of frame, even when mounted to a camera. Its rugged metal construction ensures durability while inhibiting RF interference, noise from vibrations, and problematic resonance. A fur windscreen is included for enhanced reduction of noise from wind and HVAC systems. At just 5.6 ounces, the MC5-MS serves as a significant upgrade from the microphones built into camcorders and cameras while adding minimal weight to your setup.

Accurate Stereo Audio Capture
The MC5-MS integrates dual unidirectional condenser elements arranged in an X/Y configuration for broad stereo imaging without phase discrepancies. Thanks to high sensitivity and wide frequency-response capabilities, the MC5-MS is optimal for recording dialog, sound effects, and ambient sounds.
Simple Mono Operation
When the MC5-MS is intended to supplement a primary microphone (e.g. a lavalier microphone is being routed to one of your camera's audio channels), unplug the right output of the MC5-MS to operate it in mono.
Compact and Camera-Friendly
Measuring just 5.4" long, the MC5-MS can sit atop a camera (mounts available separately) while remaining out of the shot. Since it weighs just 5.6 ounces, its presence is barely noticeable.
Ideal for Professional Camcorders
Any camcorder outfitted with dual XLR inputs and 40 to 52 VDC phantom power will provide proper hookup and power for the MC5-MS. Used in place of your camcorder's built-in microphone, the MC5-MS offers a notable improvement in sound quality.
XLR Connectivity and Phantom Powering
Thanks to its Neutrik XLR connectors, the MC5-MS delivers clean, reliable audio across balanced signal lines. Compatibility with 48V phantom power eliminates the need for batteries or external power supplies.
Rugged Metal Construction
Utilizing a metal body for reduction of RF interference, vibrations, and resonance, the MC5-MS provides improved audio quality while withstanding the rigors of location shooting.
