DPA’s on solid ground
DPA Microphones is aiming to take further inroads into the installation market with the release of a new stand for its d:screet SC4098 supercardioid podium microphone.
Designed to be placed on a either a table or podium or attached to the ceiling or wall, the Microphone Base is available with either a MicroDot connector, an XLR connector, or unterminated leads for connections to Phoenix blocks. Both black and white versions are available that the manufacturer states as boasting an ascetically pleasing design.
The d:screet capsule is mounted on a boom that, for the tabletop version, has a gooseneck at the top and the bottom allowing users to position the mic where they want it. The ceiling version consists of one gooseneck. In both versions, the cable can exit to the side of or beneath the unit. A range of kits have been formed containing a different connector solution.
For tabletop applications there are three kits consisting of a black base and a d:screet SC4098 with a 45cm gooseneck, while for ceiling applications there are three kits consisting of a white base and a d:screet SC4098 with a 15cm gooseneck. The microphone and base can also be purchased separately and mixed and matched.
