The E3A-CM system is a compact “plug and play” system for manual use (requires operator to start and stop recordings). This system can be further configured to the needs of a variety of applications and users. 

Compact E3A

Great for Field Work

  • Highly Portable
  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Powered by a lithium ion rechargable battery pack; 10 hours of field use

Our E3A systems utilize a "stereo pair" of CZMs, which allow the user to identify sounds coming from the left or right.   This configuration produces a high resolution ambient stereo recording, within a 360 degree radial.

It has thus become the microphone of choice for recording avian species, amphibians, mammals and any other sort of environmental sounds. Recordings are digital and may be:

  • Monitored during recording by the use of the headphones
  • Downloaded to a computer system for further manipulation, analysis, chart & graphic display, or other applicable use

E3A-CM System includes:

  • Two CZM microphones (180 degree configuration stereo pair), equipped with cloth covers and aluminum dual mic mount crossbar
  • Marantz PMD 661 professional compact digital field recorder
  • Calibrated tone generator to provide a reference tone for recordings
  • Studio quality headphones
  • Professional tripod (with built-in head & quick release)
  • All required cables & connectors
  • Instruction manual & 1 year parts and labour warranty
  • Custom backpack
  • Waterproof & breakproof hardcase (Storm IM2050) which houses the recorder and other electronics
