- transformerless output
- modern small membrane capsule
- modular system
- polar patterns: Hyper Cardioid
The condenser miniature microphone system SMS 2000 consists of microphone preamplifier and exchangable capsules with the polar patterns cardioid, hyper cardioid and omnidirectional. Accordingly, the microphones M 200, M 210 and M 270 are available. This allows universal application in professional recording and sound reinforcement.
The newly developed, transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer for a symmetrical output stage. The preamplifier is distinguished by its remarkably low intrinsic noise and output capabilities.
The module system adjusted to optimum reproduction properties allows a particularly clean and colourless sound reproduction. The direction of maximum sensitivity is axial. The studio microphone module system is equipped with a comprehensive range of accessories for widely varying methods of microphone mounting.
lt is possible to activate a 10 dB-preattenuation for handling very high sound pressure levels. A sensitivity reduction for low frequencies can be utilized to suppress the proximity effect. The two switches are sunk into the middle of the microphone.
The microphone are equipped with a standard 3-pin XLR connector fitting to a microphone cable, e.g. C 70. The operation voltage is provided by 48V phantom powering according to the international standards DIN 45 596 and IEC 268-15.
The studio microphone system is available in a satin nickel and black matt finish.
The pressure gradient transducer M 21 with the hyper cardioid polar pattern causes a strong "focussing" of sound in the front half-space and a suppression of crosstalk. The microphone capsule should be used for applications requiring special protection of front-impinging sound against surrounding noise.
