Schoeps CMXY 4V overview

  • 1Description

The Schoeps CMXY 4V Stereo Microphone is elegant and unobtrusive. Its mild, high-frequency boost increases the intelligibility of speech and compensates for high-frequency losses typical of moderate recording distances. Thus, it is suitable for music recordings, TV and broadcast use, e.g., on a table for discussions, for presenters, boom operations, or as a stereo spot microphone on a stand.

The capsules are arranged side-by-side and the distance between center points of the capsules is only 0.8" (21.0 mm). While this distance is in the horizontal plane, it is considerably less than the vertical distance between capsules in most other stereo microphones of professional quality. Thus, the precision of stereo imaging and mono compatibility are fully in keeping with established professional requirements. The overall width of the 2 microphones combined is similar to the diameter of a conventional stereo microphone’s capsule assembly. This is possible by using the CCM Compact Condenser Microphones, which are the smallest non-electret condenser microphones with balances outputs.

Unlike conventional microphones which have one fixed and one rotatable capsule, the angle between the capsules of the CMXY 4V Microphone (and hence the recording angle, which is the range within which the sound sources should be placed) can be adjusted without affecting the main stereo axis. The capsules always rotate equally and in opposite directions by means of a gear arrangement in the base of the microphone. This greatly simplifies setting up the microphone.

The CMXY 4V Stereo Microphone has balanced outputs at an impedance of only 90Ω. This allows cable lengths of up to several hundred meters to be used without loss of sound quality, thereby reducing the risk of electromagnetic interference. This Ug version has an XLR-5M output connector and includes the AK SU/2U adapter cable with an XLR-5F to two XLR-3M connectors.
