The Phanthera V impresses with the same qualities as the cardioid only counterpart, bringing along a dynamic and intense sound quality and highlighting the sonic elements of the source material in a subtle manner. Along with the cardioid directivity, it also allows to record in omni or bidirectional mode using a simple switch and thus adapting it to several recording situations. Using the omnidirectional characteristics, ambience along with soloists or even big orchestras are captured true-to-life since the sonic environment is also authentically reproduced.
For simultaneous stereo recording using a second microphone in XY or MS configuration bidirectional characteristics can be found. An additional switchable attenuator reduces the output level of the microphone by 10 dB, providing further valuable dynamic range where necessary. As a result the Phanthera V a versatile professional tool for pretty much every recording situation.
