Are both the cardioid and fig. 8 capsule electret condensers? If so, does it really take 8ma of phantom power just to run the preamps in this mic?
Asked by: Ben
Yes, the Sanken CMS-50 microphone includes electret condenser capsules for its cardioid and figure 8 patterns. According to the manufacturer's specifications, the mic requires +48V ± 4V phantom power for operation and current consumption is 4 mA per channel.
