The CMC 1 is a small Colette microphone amplifier, about one-third the length and 53% lighter than the CMC 6. It is compatible with all components of the Colette system and can be used in place of the CMC 6 without compromise, for all applications in which the size and weight of the microphone play a role. At Schoeps, "uncompromising miniaturization" means that the electrical characteristics of the CMC 1 are equal to, or even better than, those of the CMC 6.

A complete Colette-series microphone consists of an MK capsule and a CMC amplifer. All capsules and active accessories of the Colette system are compatible with the CMC 1. The CMC 1 works with standard 12-Volt or 48-Volt phantom powering. Power consumption is lower at 12 Volts--an advantage for battery-powered operation.


  • high maximum SPL: 135 dB-SPL with the MK 4 (0.5% THD or less)
  • very low current consumption: 2.0 mA at 48 Volts
  • operates on 48 V or 12 V phantom power, reliable operation even if powering is somewhat marginal
  • very high immunity from RF interference with the SCHOEPS RFI Shield, high immunity to cable-induced hum and other interference (field tested with Audio Limited A 10, etc.)
  • flat frequency response
  • very low distortion
  • constant output impedance across the audio frequency range
  • balanced, direct-coupled, class-A output circuit
  • output is filtered in the ultrasonic range to prevent interference, e.g. from camera autofocus

  • frequency range: 20 Hz-20 kHz
  • sensitivity: see corresponding capsule
  • maximum output voltage: 1,8 V (5 dbV) with 1kOhm load
  • maximum sound pressure level (THD < 0.5 %): 135 dB-SPL (P48) with MK 4 and 131 dB-SPL (P12) with MK 4
  • low cut filter: 20 Hz, 12dB/oct
  • output impedance: 50 Ohm +/1 Ohm (8 Hz-50 kHz)
  • minimum recommended load impedance: 1 kOhm
  • common mode rejection ratio (at 1 kHz): > 55 dB
  • maximum cable length: > 400m/1300 ft
  • Schoeps RFI Shield : yes
  • powering standard/valid range: P48/30-52 V and P12 / 11-13 V
  • current consumption: 2mA (P48) and 3 mA (P12)
  • output: Lemo, analog, 1 channel
  • length: 25.5 mm
  • diameter: 20 mm
  • weight: 28 g
  • surface finish: matte gray
