This Schoeps kit consists of the high grade CMC 6U amplifier and an MK8 figure-8 (bidrectional) capsule. This setup is often used in combination with a CMC 6U and MK41 capsule combination in M/S stereo recording applications.

The CMC 6U amplifier is known for its flat frequency response and extremely low noise and distortion. The bidirectional characteristic of the pure pressure gradient transducer design of the MK8 capsule is impressively independent of frequency.
