ORLANDO, FL, JUNE 6, 2013 – DPA Microphones will feature the d:facto™ II Vocal Microphone at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 774). Perfect for any live performance, this latest addition to the d:facto line affords users unlimited possibilities for their performances. The mic’s state-of-the-art adapter system, which allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems, is regarded as a major game changer.
The d:facto II Vocal Microphone is DPA’s latest condenser microphone. It brings true studio sound to the live stage by offering an extraordinarily natural sound, superior gain before feedback and extreme SPL handling. The new d:facto II guarantees users will have legendary DPA sound, regardless of their existing wireless systems, including Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser. The d:facto II also provides improved audio performance, as it is superbly linear in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, while its impressive definition and accuracy reproduces a singer’s voice effortlessly.
“The launch of the d:facto II Vocal Microphone is a major step for DPA, as it means that we now have a microphone for every acoustic miking situation, whether you are amplifying or recording,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “We are extremely proud to have developed an ingenious adapter/preamp range that brings the true DPA sound out of a wireless system. The ones that are currently available deliver very limited power to handle the dynamic output from our high-end condenser capsules, so getting the sound quality we wanted was nearly impossible. We had to be creative and put a huge amount of work and thought into the electronic circuit of the adapter/preamp solution. We wanted to be completely true to the input of the vocalist, and with d:facto II we have reached this goal.”
Equally at home in sound reinforcement and recording applications, the d:facto II’s simple plug-and-play features allow it to reproduce an extraordinarily natural sound, which reaches the extreme sound level handling of 160 dB. As with all DPA mics, the d:facto II provides superior gain before feedback and a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone to remove unwanted noise. It also boasts exceptional isolation from handling noise as well as the ability to accommodate extreme sound levels.
DPA Microphone will also exhibit its other microphone lines, which are equally ideal for the live performance or installation markets. The company’s highly regarded Reference Standard Microphones, now known as d:dicate, have long delivered superb audio quality to musicians who want to use a microphone on a stand. For mobile instrument miking solutions, DPA offers the innovative d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones and its range of Miniature Microphones, which are ideal for those who prefer to have their microphone mounted on their instrument. Another solution that will be available at InfoComm is DPA’s lightweight, easy-to-wear d:fine™ Headset Microphone, which is seen increasingly more often at events where voice intelligibility is important.
DPA Microphones A/S is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high quality condenser microphones and microphone solutions for professional applications in studio, broadcast, theatre, video/film and sound reinforcement environments.
