Mono-Set CMC 6 MK 4 VXP
Common name: Schoeps Mono-Set CMC 6 MK 4 VXP
Production Status: In production
The Mono-Set CMC 6 MK 4 VXP is a microphone set containing one CMC 6 microphone amplifier, and an MK 4 VXP side-addressed cardioid capsule for very close speech pickup (under 10 cm). The MK 4 XP features and identical pickup pattern to the MK 4 but has a low-frequency response roll-off (-10 dB at 100 Hz). This is compensated by the proximity effect. It also exhibits a gentle high-frequency rise between 6 kHz and 15 kHz. It is ideal for close speech pickup, and public address systems. The CMC 6 microphone amplifier features a symmetrical, transformer-less, direct-coupled, capacitor-free Class A output stage with low impedance, distortion, and interference. It offers high suppression of interference on the microphone cable and excellent protection against high-frequency radio interference with Schoeps “RFI Shield”. Above 20 kHz, the signal is attenuated for protection against interference in the ultrasonic range. It is designed for standard 48 and 12 V phantom powering. Its circuitry recognises the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. It has a 20 Hz, 12 dB/oct. low-cut filter. Includes SG 20 stand clamp, B 5 D hollow foam windscreen, Schoeps velcro cable strap, and wooden box.
