d:dicate 2011E twin diaphragm cardioid microphone, active side-exit cable.

  • • Blends clarity, richness and dynamics
  • • Twin-Diaphragm capsule and interference tube technologies
  • • Superb isolation and level control for hanging or table use
  • • Modular flexibility

2011E is part of the flexible DPA d:dicate recording microphones series. The 2011E with the MMP-E active cable offers an ultra-compact appearance with excellent directivity control and radio frequency interference rejection. 2011E is ideal for over-stage hanging or table applications and the construction combines the twin diaphragm capsule and DPA's strong know-how within interference tube technology. While the DPA 4011 cardioid has gained worldwide admiration for its total linearity at all sound confrontations, the 2011 is purposely designed differently, the off-axis response is still linear but in a smaller frequency bandwidth making stage separation and gain-to-feedback higher and mic level easier to control. At any time and with no tools necessary it is possible to transform the basic 2011 microphone into a new configuration by combining it with another DPA microphone capsule or preamp.

Twin diaphragm capsule: cutting edge technology. The overall distinctive sound image from the DPA miniatures is so well balanced that it meets the high demands of the d:dicate recording microphone range. 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 preamps instead of the tiny miniature FET preamp from the 4060 miniature series, offering even more air and precision.

Stage addict: the 2011E has found its use on numerous stages and studios requiring visual elegance. 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.
