Perfectly Matched Stereo Pair

When it comes to capturing sound in stereo, a matched pair of microphones placed in a particular stereo configuration is the ultimate solution. A matched stereo pair are meticulously tested to ensure the absolute perfect match with regards to frequency and directional response, as well as output level. Components such as resistors and capacitors are generally not made to the most precise specifications, and have marginal tolerance ranges. Therefore, testing the mics allows DPA to hand-select a pair of microphones whose components produce near-identical results, providing you with a stereo pair with every critical component being matched as closely as possible for consistently accurate stereo recording. The microphones provide an exceptionally balanced sound stage and minimize any possible differences in the left and right sides for natural and accurate stereo sound capture.

Versatile & Powerful Audio Capture

The d:dicate 4006A microphone utilises an omnidirectional polar pattern through DPA's astounding MMC4006 Omnidirectional Microphone Capsule, which is perfectly paired with their MMP-A Preamplifier. This powerful combination suitable for a huge array of recording applications thanks to the included Free-Field, Close-Miking, and Diffuse-Field grids, as well as a foam windscreen. You can also take advantage of the 4006A's exceptional directional qualities and un-coloured sound in a stereo pair for applications such as recording orchestras and large performance situations. The 4006A provides incredibly transparent sound capture with astounding detail and depth, and is capable of capturing up to a maximum SPL of 146dB before clipping occurs. The MMP-A preamp is also equipped with a 20dB switchable pad for output attenuation. Overall, DPA's d:dicate 4006A microphone achieves incredibly natural and precise reproduction of the original sound source with an exceptionally linear frequency response from 10Hz up to 20kHz.

Adjustable Modular Design

DPA's d:dicate series of microphones features their unique and powerful modular design found in the majority of their other microphone systems. This innovative architecture enables you to create the perfect microphone to meet your exact requirements without having to constantly invest in an entire collection of separate mics for various situations. The 4006A provides you with an MMC4006 Omnidirectional Microphone Capsule and is beautifully coupled with an MMP-A Preamplifier. This powerful combination is the ultimate choice for any audiophile, providing low distortion with incredibly accurate and faithful sound. However, you could attach the MMC4006 capsule to DPA's MMP-C Compact Preamplifier which features active drive for impedance balancing, and a slightly softer character than the other preamps within the d:dicate series. There's also the option to utilise one of DPA's other capsules with the preamplifiers, such as the MMC4011 Cardioid Capsule, the MMC2006 Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Capsule, the MMC2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Capsule, and the MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Capsule. The d:dicate series provides you with unparalleled flexibility, allowing you to capture the sound exactly as you desire across a huge variety of situations.
