DPA MMC2011 (MMC 2011 MMC-2011 MMC/2011) Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone Capsule
The overall distinctive sound image from the DPA miniatures is so well balanced that it meets the high demands of the DPA d:dicate Recording Microphones series.
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 d:dicate Recording Mic preamps instead of the tiny miniature FET preamp from the 4060 miniature series, offering even more air and precision.
The MMC2011 capsule is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series. The 2011A with the MMP-A preamplifier is the audiophileâ€™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 â€œbodyâ€ to the low end â€“ in addition to its easier-to-position approach.
