Sanken Chromatic Introduces New CU-51 Dual-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

| News, Sanken | July 20, 2016


A very special characteristic of the CU-51 is its ability to maintain uniform response in both on-axis and off-axis positions. The benefits of larger diaphragms are generally accepted, but previous designs typically exhibit limited high frequency response. Current methods to remedy that limitation also bring compromises, including a varying response with the off-axis angle.

The tone and response of the CU-51 remains consistent through changes in the axis angle while maintaining the benefits of a large capsule design.

The CU-51’s double capsule has one diaphragm that is optimised for low frequencies, while the other one captures the higher frequencies. To achieve this overall wide dynamic response, the capsules are individually positioned within the body of the microphone. The unique capsule mounting arrangement guarantees phase coherency between the two capsules in a meticulously engineered microphone that achieves totally transparent high-resolution results. The PPS (Polyphenylene) membranes are immune to the effects of humidity and temperature change, resulting in consistent response, regardless of the recording environment.

The CU-51’s frequency response is truly flat at 90 degrees, essential in maintaining sonic transparency. The microphone consistently delivers a high transient, natural and uncolored sound with vivid sonic imagery. The engineer is given the best possible natural sound for a wide variety of recording applications in music, and is especially suitable for vocals.
