DPA to Showcase New 2000 Series Reference Microphone Capsules at 2012 NAMM Show

ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 20, 2012 — Building on the success of its flagship 4000 Series Reference Standard Microphones, DPA Microphones, the manufacturer of high level reference and headset microphones, is showcasing the new 2000 Series MMC2006 Omni and MMC2011 Cardioid microphone capsules at The 2012 NAMM Show (Booth 6996). Designed to bring the exceptional performance of the 4000 Series to a wider audience, the new 2000 Series incorporates the same capsule technology found in the company’s entire line of miniature microphones, but pairs it with the 4000 Series microphone bodies. The new modular series is offered at an attractive price point, allowing studios, sound companies and live performing groups the opportunity to own a high-level DPA product.

“We have taken our pioneer miniature condenser capsules and engineered them into two new capsules for our modular microphone system,” says Jarrod Renaud, Sales & Marketing for DPA Microphones, Inc. “These capsules offer outstanding performance and bring DPA’s sonic integrity within reach of every serious engineer, artist or studio owner. The MMC2006 and MMC2011 Twin Diaphragm capsules are interchangeable with our standard 4000 series capsules and microphone preamps, so a 2000 Series user can upgrade to the higher level 4000 Series capsules at a later date, if desired.”

Both the MMC2006 and MMC2011 encapsulate two opposite-facing 4060 omnidirectional miniature diaphragms to form a single-capsule, twin-diaphragm design, which reduces noise while enhancing sensitivity. The MMC2011 benefits from DPA’s interference tube design experience gained through its pioneering DPA 5100 Mobile 5.1 Surround Microphone. The interference tube technology ensures the integrity of the MMC2011 cardioid pattern.

The omnidirectional MMC2006 offers a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz with a soft roll-off below 50 Hz and typical 3 dB soft boost at 14 kHz, ± 2 dB. The cardioid MMC2011 capsule is a pressure gradient type with interference tube, offering an exceptionally flat frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz with a 3 dB soft boost at 12 kHz, ± 2 dB, at 30 cm. Both capsules can be used with DPA’s MMP-A Preamplifier, MMP-B Preamp with low cut and high boost functions and the MMP-C Compact Preamp.
