Coverage area
A d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphone mounted in a DM6000 Microphone Base fits equally well on a table, lectern or
hung from the ceiling. This microphone solution delivers clean intelligible pick-up of speech / vocals and rejects background noise with
its supercardioid directionality. Low noise and a design with internal shockmount that highly dampens unwanted sounds from tables and
lecterns, secure a trouble-free installation. The cable can be looped to either the side or rear of the Microphone Base unit.
The solution consists of a d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphone with a MicroDot male connector at the end of the gooseneck
and a DM6000 Microphone Base unit with a MicroDot female connector as its input.
The solution is available in three different cable versions for easy integration.
MicroDot
This unbalanced version allows the use of an external adapter to XLR (DAD6001) or a wireless transmitter via the wide range of
DPA adapters.
Unterminated
Balanced output with free leads for easy adaption to Phoenix connectors widely used in the installation processors or input nodes.
XLR Balanced output directly to industry standard connector XLR-3M.
Available in black and white with gooseneck lengths of 16 cm (6 in), 28 cm (11 in), 43 cm (17 in); it is possible to accommodate any need
for sleek Scandinavian design and superior audio quality.
A locking ring secures the gooseneck to the base mount for protection and hidden mounting holes in the base make it possible to attach
the microphone to either a table, lectern or ceiling. It will cover most electrical backboxes as well.

Installation
The Microphone Base is unpacked and the cover released (Fig. 1) to adjust it to the desired position (three possible) and for access
to the mounting holes for permanently affixing to either a table, lectern or ceiling. The cover is released by gently inserting a flathead
screwdriver or similar tool in the three access point on the side of the unit (Fig. 2).
Remount the cover, attach the gooseneck microphone and screw it onto the Microphone Base (Fig. 3). Then slide down the locking ring
and screw it on. (Fig. 4).
