DPA d:dicate™ 2006C Compact Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic
Distinctive, well-balanced sound
- Acoustic authenticity
- Linear throughout a large frequency bandwidth
- Twin-Diaphragm Capsule Technology
- Modular flexibility
Our unique d:dicate™Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic Capsule is at the heart of these amazing microphones. This capsule gives the mic a distinctive, well-balanced sound and bridges the gap between the extreme sound quality of the d:dicate™ Recording Microphone Series and our well-known d:screet™ Miniature Microphone Series.
Two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt inside this microphone. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth. The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate™ Microphone series preamps, which gives the sound more air and precision.
Combine it with the preamp of your choice
As with all of the modular d:dicate™ Recording Microphones, you can combine the d:dicate™ Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic Capsule with any of our preamps.
The MMP-A Mic Preamp is an ultra-transparent, transformerless preamp with active drive for impedance balancing. The MMP-C Compact Mic Preamp is an ultra-compact preamp with active drive for impedance balancing. It has a slightly softer character than the other preamps in the d:dicate™ Microphones Series.
Other preamps include the very small form factor types MMP-E Modular Active Cable (XLR output) and MMP-G Modular Active Cable (MicroDot output), allowing for very slim set-ups. The MMP-G even allows you to match a larger microphone directly to a wireless transmitter.
For the true audiophile, the d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic offers low distortion and totally accurate and faithful sound.
The d:dicate™ 2006C Compact Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the d:dicate™ 2006A. It is also much easier to position than other omni mics, due to its smaller size.
At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 2006 Twin Diaphragm Omni Mic into a new configuration.
A bit about omnis
An omnidirectional microphone has sensitivity at all angles – in principle picking up sound equally from all directions. This gives you extremely natural and realistic sound compared to a cardioid mic. Omni mics are often used for picking up ambient sounds, as well as miking a large sound source such as a choir in a recording situation. Unfortunately, due to their pickup pattern, omnis can also produce a lot of feedback in live situations.
Nonetheless, we recommend that you try a DPA omni first because, when used close to the sound source, the equal frequency response makes these mics a flexible addition in your audio toolbox. It will often give a more natural sound, it can handle extremely high sound pressure levels, it does not suffer from proximity effect and is not as sensitive to wind, pop or handling noise.
