The M 295 extends 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 applications in professional recording and sound reinforcement and meet the requirements of modern technics.
The newly developed, transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer for a symmetrical output stage. Its intrinsic noise and remarkably output capability emphasize the advantages of the microphone capsules M 70 and M 94. Microphone capsules with an extremly thin metal diaphragm enable brilliant sound transmission.
The direction of maximum sensitivity is axial. The studio microphones are equipped with a wide range of accessories for many microphone mounting methods.
lt is possible to activate a 10 dB-attenuator pad for handling very high sound pressure levels. A sensitivity reduction for low frequencies can be utilized to suppress the proximity effect. The two switches are into the middle of the preamplifiers.
The microphone is equipped with a standard 3-pin XLR connector fitting to a microphone cable, e.g. C70. The operation voltage is provided by 48 V phantom powering, according to the international standards DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15.
They are available in a satin nickel or a black matt finish.
Both condenser microphone capsules are pressure gradient transducer. The converter elements contain a nickel diaphragm with a thickness of less than 1 µm. The back-plate electrodes are Teflon-coated to increase operational reliability.
M295 The frequency response in the upper range is nearly 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 suited for recordings in close proximity to the sound source.
lt is recommended to use a popscreen and to switch on the microphone bass rolI-off for closerange applications.A windscreen can be utilized to enhance life-like recording.
