New d:dicate Series MMP-F Modular Active Boom unveiled
DPA Microphones, the manufacturer of high-level reference and headset microphones introduced its new d:dicate Series MMP-F Modular Active Boom at the 2014 NAMM Show. Intended for use with the d:dicate MMC4011 Cardioid and MMC4018 Supercardioid mics for podium, floor stand or hanging applications, the MMP-F relies on the same technology as the company’s MMP-E active cable.
Equipped with an active boom pole preamp, the MMP-F is available in a variety of lengths and gooseneck options. It fits to any modular d:dicate capsule and offers excellent radio frequency rejection, which is obtained through the DPA-designed impedance balancing with active drive.
“We’re excited to introduce this new MMP-F Modular Boom, which further enhances the options of uses for our d:dicate Recording Microphone Series,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “The d:dicate line combines the company’s best new and existing capsules and preamplifiers, which deliver superior sound across many applications where the microphones have not been widely used before, such as live sound applications for touring and installation purposes.”
The MMP-F Booms are available in 15-, 30- and 45-cm hanging/table/podium options and as 75- and 120-cm floor stand choices. In addition to the MMC4011 and MMC4018, the d:dicate range also includes the MMC4007 High-SPL Omnidirectional Capsule and microphones from the familiar and well-loved DPA Reference Standard series, including the modular 4000 and 2000 Series.
