The CSS-50 is an affordable, easy to operate and flexible microphone designed for use in broadcasting and feature films requiring stereo and surround sound. The CSS-50 clearly captures stereo center-targeted sound with moderate ambient noise. To achieve this, Sanken developed the three-capsule CSS-50 to capture the center sound like a normal shotgun with the addition of two mic capsules for variable stereo imaging
Thanks to original thin square capsule design, 3-caps.ules can be installed in a short acoustic tube, maintaining basic shotgun performance equivalent to the CSS-5 in a compact body. High-performance electret condenser capsules deliver a wide frequency response, and high sensitivity. Choose between sharp mono directivity, directional stereo, or a wide 140º pattern all with consistent sound characteristics.
