Common name: Schoeps CMXY 41V
Production Status: In production
The CMXY 41V is a compact and lightweight stereo microphone for XY recordings. It features two side-addressed super-cardioid capsules that can be set between 0° and 180°. The CMXY provides improved spacial resolution as the channel correlation in the diffuse field is lower than with a cardioid X/Y microphone. If the angle between capsules is set to 90°, a stereophonic recording angle of 130° will result. The capsules always rotate equally and in opposite directions thanks to a mechanical arrangement in the base of the microphone. This helps setting up the microphone while maintaining the central axis fixed. Thanks to its slight high-frequency emphasis it is ideally suited to music recordings at medium distance and speech. It is ideal for music recordings and in conference situations, during discussion sessions, and as a stereophonic spot microphone. Includes AK SU/2U (XLR-5F to 2 × XLR-3M) cable and the SG 20 microphone clamp. The CMXY is also available with integrated table stand.
