DPA Microphones’ New D:Facto Handheld Microphone Makes North American Debut

dpa-dscreet-0416DPA Microphones is debuting its new linear version of the d:facto Handheld Microphone range this week. The new mic is dubbed the d:facto Linear Vocal Microphone. DPA will also be highlighting the GM1600 Gooseneck – a new mount for its d:screet Omnidirectional Miniature Microphones.

Featuring a new capsule with an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern that is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range, the d:facto Linear Vocal Microphone combines a cardioid and supercardioid directional characteristics, just like the original d:facto Vocal Microphone. This allows for focus on the sound source with minimal bleed and claims to have a high separation and SPL handling up to 160 dB.

DPA’s d:facto range is entirely modular and this latest version is no exception. The capsule can be removed and replaced with any other d:facto capsule to suit different recording or performance requirements. Also, using DPA’s flexible adapter system, the microphone can be transformed from a wired version with a handle to a handheld wireless microphone, capable of seamless integration with all leading wireless solutions including Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics and Line6.

Here are the details.
