The Rycote ConnBox microphone cable connector boxes are designed to mount on the Rycote Modular Suspension. The Connbox acts as a transition connector and anchor point for the microphone tail(s) designed to isolate and eradicate cable-borne noise. Rigid and improperly dressed microphone cables often deny true microphone isolation, weighing the microphone down and causing noise from movement and vibration to reach the microphone.
The ConnBox simply connects between the microphone and input device. Since the ConnBox mounts to the bar of the Rycote Modular Suspension, the ultra-thin microphone cable tails are given the necessary slack needed to achieve true noise free isolation. The ConnBox features a hardwired output cable (XLR 3-pin, 5-pin or XLR 7-pin connection depending on model) and model specific input connectors.
- Three Input Connection
- The ConnBox DMS features a standard XLR-3F and Two Schoeps Lemo input connection cable tails. Designed to accommodate the Schoeps CMIT5U (or comparable length short shotgun), a Schoeps CCM8 L figure-8 and CCM4 L Cardioid (Lemo versions) microphones in an DMS (Double Mid-Side) Surround array. The addition of (2) Schoeps KMSC adapter clips simplifies the mounting of the CCM 8L and CCM 4L to the shotgun
- Standard XLR-7 Output
- A hardwired 7-pin XLR output cable connects to the microphone inputs. The ConnBox will pass phantom power to condenser microphones whenever necessary
- Mounts To Rycote Suspension Mount
- The ConnBox mounts directly onto the Rycote Suspension Mount, relieving cable tension that can cause noise or damage
