DPA Microphones’ d:facto II Vocal Mic Makes Its Rental Debut

ALLEROED, DENMARK, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 – After a live test of DPA Microphones’ original d:facto™ Vocal Microphone at London’s Royal Festival Hall, sound production and rental company RNSS was so impressed with the mic’s performance that the company has placed an order for six of the new d:facto II Vocal Microphones.

Prior to the purchase, RNSS specified DPA d:facto Vocal Microphones as part of the audio equipment for the London Jazz Festival, an annual event produced in association with BBC Radio 3. Hailed as the capital’s biggest pan-city music festival, The London Jazz Festival featured artists such as Herbie Hancock and Lucinda Williams.

“We have had a long association with DPA Microphones and already carry a large stock of the company’s products,” says Richard Nowell, director of RNSS. “I was intrigued by the new d:facto Vocal Microphone and was keen to try it out. The Jazz Festival gave us the perfect opportunity to put it through its paces. We borrowed two d:factos from DPA’s UK distributor Sound Network and used them as high-end alternatives to our usual vocal mics. The mics performed flawlessly and delivered exceptional sound that was much appreciated by the artists and the sound crew. The mics’ ability to filter out unwanted noise meant that we could safely use them for singers who were performing in front of an orchestra without the risk of vocals being drowned out.”

One of the artists who used DPA’s d:facto Vocal Microphone was Kris Kristofferson who performed at the Royal Festival Hall shortly after the Jazz Festival.

“We held onto the microphones because we liked them so much and wanted to use them for Kris’ concert,” explains Nowell. “Kris is interested in sound and is always open to trying something new. He really liked the structure and tonal quality of the d:facto and was very happy with the results it delivered.”

Equally at home in sound reinforcement and recording applications, DPA’s new d:facto II Vocal microphone offers an extraordinarily natural sound, high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances. In addition to use with the new wired DPA handle, the d:facto provides 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 including Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser. The d:facto 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.

RNSS will be taking delivery of its new DPA d:facto Vocal Microphones in a few weeks time and is already anticipating plenty of interest.

“We have decided to buy six of the new d:facto II microphones so that we can use them with our existing wireless systems,” concludes Nowell. ”We see huge potential for these microphones as rental items because they are so versatile. The adapter system will give our customers plenty of options as they can either use a wired DPA handle or the professional wireless system of their choosing, with no loss in the sound quality.”
