The DPA d:dicate 2011C Compact Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone has strong references to the DPA 4011. 2011 is optimized for on-stage use and the technology combines the new Twin Diaphragm Capsule and DPA’s strong know-how within interference tube technology.

All-round workhorse – blends clarity, richness and dynamics
Twin-Diaphragm-Capsule and interference tube technologies
Superb stage separation and level control
While 4011 has gained worldwide admiration for its total linearity at all sound confrontations, the 2011 is purposely aimed 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.
2011A is part of the flexible DPA d:dicate Recording Mics series. The 2011A with the MMP-A preamplifier is the audiophile’s choice with low distortion and total accurate and faithful sound, where the 2011C with the MMP-C compact preamplifier offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end – in addition to its easier-to-position approach.
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 DPA 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.
The 2011 has found its use on numerous stages and recording sessions. 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.
