Hello from Australia. Congratulations on the quality of the information presented in the Microphone Forum section of the Crown web site. What is the maximum arc through which the LM-201 and LM-201L lectern mics may be swiveled? Also, I see from tip #7 that the assumed working distance from capsule to lips is 8 inches for this model. What is considered to be the closest distance at which a prudent user would work with this model?

Reply: Thanks, John. Below is a diagram that shows the range of motion of the LM-201 arm.The arm rotates +/- 15 degrees horizontally and 74 degrees vertically. The closest working distance would be about 3 inches; the sound gets progressively more bassy as you approach the mic. Also, breath pops are a problem with close miking. It's best to use the mic with its foam windscreen to reduce breath pops.
