Schoeps CMC 62H Omnidirectional Condenser Mic Stereo Set
The Schoeps CMC 62H Microphone Stereo Set is a complete omnidirectional microphone stereo set including two CMC amplifiers, two MK 2H omnidirectional capsules, pop screens, clamps and box.
CMC 6 Amplifier
The CMC 6 is designed for standard 48- and 12-Volt phantom powering. Its circuitry recognizes the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Its performance characteristics remain essentially the same either way; mainly, the difference is that the current drawn at 12 Volts is greater than at 48 Volts. However, the 12-Volt mode consumes less power and might be preferred for battery-powered recording.
The microphone amplifier is responsible for providing the necessary electric charge to the capsule, without which it would be unable to generate a signal. Since the capsule's output signal is very weak (Hi-Z), it must be amplified. In order for the microphone's output to cleanly reach the next stage in the signal chain, it must undergo balancing and impedance matching before transmission. The CMC 6 incorporates a balanced, direct-coupled class-A amplifier, yielding a low output impedance, high RF shielding, and minimal distortion.
- Flat frequency response
- Very low harmonic distortion and noise
- Works with 12V and 48V phantom power
- Balanced, low-impedance output
- High suppression of interference on the Microphone cable
- Excellent protection against high-frequency Radio interference with "RFI Shield"
- Frequency-independent impedance
- Signal transmission possible over very long cables
- Reliable operation even with weak phantom power
- Symmetrical, transformer- and capacitor-free output stage with a Cass A amplifier
- Above 20 kHz, the signal is attenuated for protection against interference in the ultrasonic range, e.g. through the ultrasonic autofocus of a film camera
MK 2H Capsule
The MK 2H, like the MK 2S, is ideal for natural-sounding pickup of instruments and orchestras in spaces with well-balanced reverberance. The choice between the two capsule types is essentially a matter of personal preference. At a given miking distance the MK 2H might be described as more ”balanced and round” sounding while the MK 2S would give a slight additional brilliance. However, one might also choose the MK 2H for slightly closer placement or the MK 2S for slightly more distant placement – and then these two capsule types would have very similar sound quality, with the main difference being the balance of direct to reverberant sound which is picked up.
The gold-plated ring reduces the size of the acoustic opening of the MK 2H. This results in an acoustic elevation above 6 kHz. The MK 2H is a capsule often described as balanced and round.
It features a mild high-frequency response elevation at 0°, which compensates high frequency losses caused by a slightly increased diffuse field amount at medium recording distance.
The Colette series was introduced back in 1973 and has since been made up of mutually compatible modules that are constantly being updated and supplemented. No other microphone system has been on the market for such a long time. The Colette series invented the modularity in microphone technology and is considered more than ever before to be the best small-diaphragm microphone system.
Microphones from the modular Colette series are comprised of a microphone capsule screwed onto an amplification unit. Any capsule can be combined with any amplifier. Active accessories can be inserted between capsule and amplifier if desired. The RC active extension tube in particular graces many high-profile events with its stylish appearance. Due to its modular nature, the Colette system offers a large variety of options, for a wide range of use cases.
