Sound technology specialist DPA has launched Core, a new amplifier technology that lives within its line of miniature lavalier and headset microphones.
DPA developed the new amplifier to create a clearer sound from the ‘highest of the highs’ to the ‘lowest of the lows’.
The dynamic range has been expanded in all ‘Core’ miniature capsules. For example, the dynamic range of the d:screet 4061 and the d:fine 4066 has been increased by 14 dB at 1% THD. ‘CORE’ technology gives the microphones a more clear and open sound in the whole level range; from a whisper to a scream.
René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones, said: “The new ‘Core’ technology does not replace our existing beloved mics, but rather offers another choice to our worldwide customer base. We want to give our users every option imaginable to capture the sound that they require during any type of production; live sound, theatre, film recording, etc. DPA is excited to provide this new, leading-edge solution that while unseen to the eye, can be heard very clearly by ear.”
Located in the capsule of its miniature mics, ‘Core’ is currently available in the d:screet 4060, d:screet 4061, d:fine 4066 and d:fine 4088 mics. Microphones purchased with the new technology will come in ‘Core’ packaging and will have a blue label near the serial number on the cable to differentiate between these and the original versions. A very discreet laser engraving stating ‘core’ has been incorporated at the microphone capsule as well. The remaining d:screet and d:fine microphones and full range of color options will be available with ‘Core’ technology in early 2018.
The new ‘Core’ omnidirectional microphones will also provide water and moisture resistance through nano coating and hermetic sealing of the sensitive electronics.
“As a company, we always want to maintain our ‘core’ values through the solutions that we present,” Mørch added. “With the announcement of this new technology, we are staying true to our company roots by providing our customers with an enhancement to the absolute finest microphone solutions on the market today.”
