ISE 2017: DPA Microphones reveals sound dampening capsule15 February 2017
DPA Microphones exhibited the Microphone Base for the first time last week at ISE in conjunction with distributor Amptec.
The Microphone Base is designed for use with the d:screet SC4098 Podium Microphone, and can be placed on a table or podium, or attached to the ceiling or wall. It has an internal shock mount that highly dampens unwanted sounds from tables and lecterns for trouble-free installation. Available in black and white, it comes with either a MicroDot connector, an XLR connector, or unterminated leads for connections to Phoenix blocks.
The d:screet capsule is mounted on a sleek boom that, for the tabletop version, has a gooseneck at the top and the bottom, thus allowing users to position the mic exactly where they want it, says DPA. The ceiling version consists of a one-piece gooseneck. In both versions, the cable can exit to the side of, or beneath, the unit.
To make it easier for installers to choose the right microphone and base for their needs, DPA has assembled a range of kits, each containing a different connector solution. Customers can also buy the microphone base and microphone separately so that they can mix and match connectors, base colours and gooseneck lengths.
