DPA adds 'CORE' amplifier technology to miniature mic capsules
New technology looks to minimise distortion as well as increase the dynamic range, or workable area, of the company's d:screet and d:fine lines of microphones.
DPA Microphones has launched CORE, a new amplifier technology that lives within its line of miniature lavalier and headset microphones.
Looking to minimise distortion as well as increase the dynamic range, or workable area, of its d:screet and d:fine lines of microphones, DPA developed this new amplifier to create an even clearer sound from the ‘highest of the highs’ to the ‘lowest of the lows.’
The dynamic range has been expanded in all ‘CORE’ miniature capsules, designed to give the microphones a more clear and open sound in the whole level range. For example, the dynamic range of the d:screet 4061 and the d:fine 4066 has been increased by 14 dB at 1% THD.
Located in the capsule of its miniature mics, ‘CORE’ is currently available in the d:screet 4060, d:screet 4061, d:fine 4066 and d:fine 4088 mics. Microphones purchased with the new technology will come in ‘CORE’ packaging and will have a blue label near the serial number on the cable to differentiate between these and the original versions. A discreet laser engraving has been incorporated at the microphone capsule as well. The remaining d:screet and d:fine microphones and full range of colour options will be available with ‘CORE’ technology in early 2018.
The new ‘CORE’ omnidirectional microphones will also provide water and moisture resistance through nano coating and hermetic sealing of the sensitive electronics.
“The new ‘CORE’ technology does not replace our existing beloved mics, but rather offers another choice to our worldwide customer base,” said DPA product manager René Mørch. “We want to give our users every option imaginable to capture the sound that they require during any type of production; live sound, theatre, film recording, etc.”
