A Schoeps Colette-series condenser microphone normally consists of a CMC microphone amplifier plus one of the many available types of SCHOEPS Colette series microphone capsule, operating from a source of 12-Volt or 48-Volt phantom powering. However, such powering is not available when the microphone is used with a pocket transmitter, as is often the case in film and television production. In these situations, the Schoeps CMR microphone amplifier can be used.
The CMR allows any SCHOEPS ”Colette” series capsule (except the BLM 03 C active boundary layer capsule) to be used with pocket transmitters. As with electret microphones, only a very low supply current is required, yet the CMR offers low output impedance and good immunity to interference. The biggest benefit of all, however, is SCHOEPS' well-known sound quality, which this amplifier delivers fully.
The robust connecting cable is reinforced with Kevlar fibers. It remains flexible at low temperatures, and does not twist.
The CMR can be used with devices which provide 1 mA for a microphone at 4 Volts or higher.
- Specially designed for using SCHOEPS ”Colette” series microphone capsules with pocket transmitters
- Low power consumption: only about 1/20 to 1/48 that of a phantom-powered microphone
- Low-impedance, unbalanced output
