The CMXY 4V is a compact and versatile X/Y stereo microphone which is both elegant and very unobtrusive. Its mild high-frequency boost increases the intelligibility of speech and compensates for high-frequency losses typical of moderate recording distances. It is ideal for music recordings, TV and broadcast use, e.g. on a table for discussions, for presenters, boom operations or as a stereo spot microphone on a stand.

The side-by-side arrangement of capsules is somewhat unusual. But there can never be perfect three-dimensional coincidence between any two microphones, and the distance between center points of the capsules in a CMXY is only 21 mm. While this distance is in the horizontal plane, it is considerably less than the vertical distance between capsules in most other stereo microphones of professional quality. Thus the precision of stereo imaging and mono compatibility are fully in keeping with established professional requirements. The overall width of the two microphones combined is similar to (often less than) the diameter of a conventional stereo microphone’s capsule assembly. This is possible by using the smallest non-electret condenser microphones with balanced outputs, the CCM Compact Condenser Microphones.
