Best choice table microphone for SCM810

Date Updated: March 2, 2018 FAQ #498
Question:
I am installing a Shure SCM810 for a boardroom installation. Board room has 14-20 seats and I will use 16 mics. The speaker system will be ceiling based and my contractor has suggested using MX393 mics. Will these be the most suitable for this application or would a gooseneck type microphone be better? Can you confirm this mic selection or make appropriate suggestions for mic in same price range as MX393 that are compatible with SCM810?
Answer:


A gooseneck microphone, such as the MX400 series, will provide better sound than a boundary microphone, simply because the microphone will be closer to the talker's mouth.
The MX393 or the MX400 series will work with the SCM810.
