M 295 - Condenser Microphone
The microphones M 294 and M 295 extend the studio microphone System SMS 2000. The proved microphone capsules M 70 and M 94 form a unit with the modified microphone amplifier MV 200.
These microphones are designed for a universal application in professional recording and sound reinforcement and meet the requirements of modern technics.
The newly developed, transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer by a symmetrical output stage. The low intrinsic noise and a remarkably output capability emphasize the advantages of the microphone capsules M 94 and M 70. Microphone capsules with an extremly thin metal diaphragm are very impressive because of its brilliant sound transmission.
The direction of maximum sensitivity is axial. The studio microphones are equipped with a comprehensive range of accessories for widely varying methods of microphone mounting.
lt is possible to switch on a 10 dB-preattenuation for the handling of very high sound pressure levels. A reduction of the sensitivity factor for low frequencies can be utilized to suppress the proximity effect. The two switches are sunk placed in the middle of the amplifier.
At the lower end of the amplifier a 3-pin XLR connector is placed for the C 70 microphone cable. The power supply is provided by 48 V phantom powering, which is internationally standardized as P 48 in DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15.
The studio microphones are available with the finish matt black and satin nickel.
Both condenser microphone capsules operate as pressure gradient transducer. The converter elements contain nickel diaphragma with a thickness of less than 1 µm. The teflon-coated back electrodes serve to increase performance reliability.
The frequency response in the upper range is virtually linear, while in the Iower frequency band it features a slight roII-off to counteract the bass lift of dose speech (proximity effect). The microphone is thus ideally suitable for recordings in dose proximity to the sound source.
lt is recommendable at close-talking to use a close-speech screen and to switch on the bass rolI-off on the amplifier. In order to get a life-like recording on Iocation a wind screen should be utilized.
