Where to buy

Product Description

No external processing is required and each element is delivered via a 5m multi-core cable to 6 dedicated outputs on XLR connectors. The 5 miniature microphones are designed and mounted within the unit’s baffled chambers to provide optimum separation and natural time differences between each capsule. The front 3 microphones are time aligned and employ DiPMic™ (Directional Pressure Microphone) technology unique to DPA. The low frequency element is derived from the sum of the L/R condenser capsules, high pass filtered at 120Hz, and attenuated by 10dB as per 5.1 specification.
