Common name: Schoeps CMXY 4V
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The CMXY 4V is a compact and lightweight stereo microphone for XY recordings. It is a classic cardioid X/Y microphone. If the angle between capsules is set to 90°, a stereophonic recording angle of 180° 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.
