The DMS Matrix MDMS U offers a complete 5.0 surround signal directly and is part of the Schoeps WSR-DMS surround system. It is a small, sturdy box containing high-quality transformers which form a passive decoder matrix. The microphone signals are converted directly into the 5.0 surround signals L/R/C/LS/RS. An additional switch enables a second setting, which is a four-channel L/R/LS/RS setup without the Center channel. Phantom powering is needed for only three of the outputs.

The matrix parameters are designed such that the resulting 5 (or 4) virtual microphones are optimally arranged and undesirable artifacts avoided. Both settings offer well-designed properties. The settings have been designed and evaluated in extensive field tests for ambience recording, live TV shows, theater and music recording. In general, the unedited channels from the DMS decoder offer the best possible solution.


  • minimal channel overlap (crosstalk)
  • optimal virtual microphone balance in all directions (supercardioid patterns)
  • well-balanced 360┬░ localization
  • optimal 360┬░ overall level constancy
  • minimal back-lobe pickup (< -11dB)
