The breakthrough CUW-180 is two exceptionally engineered cardioid condenser microphones combined in one compact body. Each of the two 180° capsules is independently adjustable with 15" detents. For stereo recording, such as common X-Y configurations, the precise alignment of both capsules maintains optimum on-axis response and phase coherence. The CUW-180 can also be used in interview situations between face-to-face participants, in a bi-directional figure 8 design, but with full independent control of each signal.
It is important to note that two microphone capsules in one body creates an ideal stereo configuration because the actual physical design takes into account the effect of the microphone body itself, as opposed to two separate microphones which are not physically designed to work adjacent to one another. The advanced physics employed in the operation of the CUW-180 utilizes extensive research conducted with NHK and furthers the Sanken legacy of incorporating new and innovative design concepts.
For stereo recording, such as common X-Y configurations, the position of both capsules maintains optimum on-axis response and phase coherence. For surround applications, two CUW-180 mics can capture 4 channels of Left, Right, Surround Left and Surround Right program simultaneously, with four independently adjustable signals.
