5100 Mobile Surround Microphone
Plug-and-play solution. Lightweight and portable. Rich, smooth and fully enveloping sound. Discrete 5.1 analog output, no processing needed. The 5100 employs five miniature pressure transducers that exhibit low sensitivity to wind and mechanical noise, low distortion, consistent low frequency response and wide dynamic range. Optimum channel separation and directionality are achieved through a combination of DPA's proprietary DiPMic? (Directional Pressure Microphone) technology, which mounts interference tubes on the L/C/R capsules, and the use of acoustic baffles that further preserve the accuracy of levels between the discrete analogue output channels. The 5.1 output of the 5100 runs through a multi-pin Lemo connector carrying all six channels electronically balanced, while an enclosed five-meter six-pair Mogami cable breaks out to six Neutrik XLR-M connectors. The centre channel can be overridden by an external boom or lavalier microphone attached via a built-in XLR-F connector - particularly useful for interviews and documentaries.
