DPA Microphones Brings Exceptional Sound Quality To The Live Sound And Touring Industries

At PLASA 2012 (Hall 1, Stand F38), DPA Microphones and its UK distributor Sound Network will showcase an outstanding range of high quality microphones that are ideally suited to the rigours and demands of the live sound and touring industries.
Christian Poulsen, DPA’s CEO, says: “We are excited to be exhibiting at the PLASA show this year with the UK being one of our key markets. With the new d:fine™ headset, d:facto™ vocal and d:vote™ instrument microphones, we are raising the bar for good sound in challenging environments, where DPA microphones have already set the standard for headset and miniature mics for many years. DPA’s long list of fantastic references within theatre, broadcast, lives and installation environments proves the unique combination of high sound quality and reliability.”
DPA will show its expanded d:fine™ series of headset microphones that recently won Live Design’s Sound Product of the Year Award. Offering impressive gain before feedback and very stable construction, the unobtrusive d:fine™ headset microphones are easy to fit and provide a discreet microphone solution. The range, which is renowned for its audio accuracy, is available in both directional and omnidirectional options and in single or dual-ear designs with a choice of three lengths of microphone booms.
DPA will also be showing its new d:facto™ hand-held vocal mic, which offers an exceptionally natural sound, high separation from nearby sound sources and extreme sound level handling. In common with all DPA mics, d:facto™ features superior gain-before-feedback and combines a supercardiod pattern with superb definition to give high separation and true sound color on stage. d:facto also features an inbuilt 3-step pop protection grid that allows the artist’s vocal performance to dominate by effectively removing unwanted noise.
PLASA visitors can win one of these ground-breaking microphones by getting their badge scanned at the DPA stand. One lucky visitor will be chosen at random and the winner will be announced after the show.
DPA will complete its PLASA 2012 line up with its popular range of d:vote™ 4099 instrument microphones. Perfect for PA amplification and live recording, d:vote™ 4099 instrument microphones are tiny, elegant products that are extremely rugged and durable. Capable of handling high sound pressure levels and offering superior gain-before-feedback, these microphones live up to DPA’s pedigree of breathtaking clarity and richness.
Versatility is key to the success of the d:vote range, which features a number of different clips suited to a wide variety of instruments. Each microphone incorporates a gooseneck to provide ultra-stable positioning and the mics can easily be unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. Recent enhancements to the shock mount provide even better absorption and d:vote™ instrument microphones now feature detachable cables available in 2.2mm (0.087 in) and 1.55mm (0.061 in) diameter versions from the end of the gooseneck. Further flexibility is available through an extension unit for the gooseneck supplied with the microphone, which lengthens its neck by 50%.
With their MicroDot connectors and the option of more than 35 DPA adapters, both d:fine™ headset microphones and d:vote™ instrument microphones are compatible with just about any wireless system. They can also be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via its supplied XLR connector.
PLASA 2012 takes place at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, from September 9th – 12th.
