The new DPA 2011A microphone has strong references to the acclaimed close-miking and hi-SPL handling specialist DPA 4011 cardioid microphone -not only by its type number 11, also in its all-round capture abilities.2011 is primarily optimized for on-stage use and the technology combines the new Twin Diaphragm Capsule and DPA's strong know-how within interference tube technology.While 4011 has gained worldwide admiration for its total linearity at all sound confrontations, the 2011 is purposely aimed differently; the off-axis response is still linear but in a smaller frequency bandwidth making stage separation and gain-to-feedback higher and mic level easier to control.
- Modular flexibility:
2011A is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series. The 2011A with the MMP-A preamplifier is the audiophile's choice with low distortion and total accurate and faithful sound, where the 2011C with the MMP-C compact preamplifier offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more "body" to the low end -in addition to its easier-to-position approach.At any time and with no tools necessary it is possible to transform the basic 2011 microphone into a new configuration by combining it with another DPA microphone capsule or preamp.
- Twin Diaphragm Capsule: cutting edge technology:
The overall distinctive sound image from the DPA miniatures is so well balanced that it meets the high demands of the DPA Reference Standard league.In a 2011 capsule two opposite facing miniature capsules are custom re-built into a double diaphragm, one-capsule composition.The use and control of interference tubes has become a DPA specialty and the 2011 is no exception; the capsules are loaded to the supreme Reference Standard preamps instead of the tiny miniature FET preamp from the 4060 miniature series, offering even more air and precision.
- Stage addict:
The 2011 has found its use on numerous stages and recording sessions. Exhibiting a previously unheard blend of clarity, richness and dynamic range, the 2011 performs like a much more exclusive microphone and redefines the term value for money.
