Popular among professional field audio engineers, the gray Schoeps CMC54S Set is a Colette Series modular microphone system featuring the CMC 5 preamplifier and MK 4S cardioid capsule for a high-quality alternative to shotgun microphones when recording dialog and sound effects indoors. The system is based on the modular CMC 5 preamplifier and MK series capsules, which are capable of wide, linear frequency response curves and superior audio quality. This system includes the CMC 5 preamplifier and a MK 4S capsule.
The CMC 5 preamplifier features Class-A transformerless electronics, resulting in a low noise floor and light weight. The high-impedance input signal of the modular capsules are accurately converted to low-impedance energy, allowing for long cable runs without noise and radio-frequency interference.
The MK 4S capsule is a Cardioid condenser capsule with a wide frequency range and high SPL handling. The cardioid capsule is effective in minimizing noise and ambient audio at the off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. The microphone system is optimized for crucial capturing of dialog and ambience for film, professional video, and professional audio applications.
