DPA d:dicate 2011C Microphone

Compact, Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser

The new DPA 2011C has strong references to DPA's acclaimed close-miking & Hi-SPL specialist 4011 cardioid microphone – not only by its type number 11, but also in its all-round capture abilities.

The 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.

The DPA 2011C:

Whilst the DPA 4011 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 & gain-to-feedback higher and the mic level easier to control.

  • All-round workhorse – blends clarity, richness and dynamics
  • Twin-Diaphragm-Capsule and interference tube technologies
  • Superb stage separation and level control
  • Modular flexibility

Modular Upgradability...

The 20011C 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 totally accurate & faithful sound, whereas the 2011C MMP-C compact preamplifier offers a subtle character change with a bit more “body” to the low end – in addition to its easier-to-position approach.

At any time, it's possible to easily transform the basic 2011 microphone into a new configuration simply by combining it with another DPA capsule or preamp.

Twin Diaphragm Capsule 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 long been 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 immediately found success 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.
