  • The CMS-2 M-S stereo condenser microphone was designed primarily to record orchestras, choruses and choirs in theatres, concert halls and churches. Because of the “one point” physical presence of the microphone itself, the operator can obtain a very naturally mixed stereo sound with the use of the MB-2A matrix box. The light titanium matched diaphragms permit a wide frequency response and the ability to withstand high SPLs up to 145dB.

    The CMS-2 features a very flat frequency response 20Hz to 18kHZ and inaudible self-noise 16dB or less, which makes it well suited for high resolution recording. It also features an original Sanken Push-Pull type capsule design which gives it a 6dB higher sensitivity than similar sized conventional microphones.

    The CMS-2 stereo microphone has a high dynamic range of 129dB [maximum SPL = 145dB at 1% THD]. It has a one-micron thick titanium diaphragm that is pre-set for use with a 127° perspective controllable matrix box. In addition, the CMS-2 can work with any standard matrix box.
