Prolight + Sound 2013: DPA has got the d:facto II11 April 2013
DPA Microphones has now broadened its range of products for the live stage with the launch of the new d:facto II Vocal Microphone at Prolight + Sound 2013.
As an addition to the DPA condenser microphone range, the d:facto II features a new wired DPA handle. It is able to provide singers and engineers with the added benefit of a state-of-the-art adapter system that allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems.
The new d:facto II offers DPA sound with popular existing wireless systems such as Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser.
In addition, the new microphone, which can be used for sound reinforcement and recording applications, offers plug-and-play features that allow it to reproduce natural sound, which reaches the extreme sound level handling of 160 dB. What’s more the mic is linear in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, while offering enhanced definition and accuracy. It also is said to set new standards with its robust three-stage pop protection grid that ensures the removal of unwanted noise.
Alongside the new d:facto II, DPA is also showing new solutions for its Reference Standard range of microphones, including a new and unobtrusive gooseneck cable that is available in several lengths. Furthermore, DPA will show the supercardioid d:vote 4099 instrument microphone mounted in an elegant gooseneck – suitable for capturing the sound of drums and other static instruments.
