Sanken CSS5 Stereo (Wide/Normal) Mono Switchable Shotgun
The Sanken CSS5 is the first shotgun microphone available with 3 switchable modes. The Sanken CSS5 has excellent rear rejection at 180° even with low frequencies. The Mono-Stereo compatibility of the CSS5 is also great with mono and the phantom center both having the same sound characteristics.
In the MONO mode, sharp directivity is maintained over a wide frequency range for the aimed frontal sound sources, using the combination of a second gradient microphone and a line microphone. It is significant that the CSS-5 picks up the chosen sound source very clearly even in a noisy ambient situation or in a long reverberation space.
In the NORMAL mode, the CSS-5 clearly picks up the targeted sound as well as extremely accurate stereo localization. STEREO angle is 120°.
The WIDE mode is designed for stereo recording of sound effects and environmental information where dialogue will be dubbed in at a later date. This mode allows a wider 140 degree stereo width.
In stereo recordings, the frequency response of the MONO summed output often exhibits interference, or comb filtering. This phenomenon is caused by phase differences between the Left and Right signals. This does not occur in single point recording
