UK - At PLASA 2012 (Hall 1, Stand F38), DPA Microphones and its UK distributor Sound Network will showcase its range of high quality microphones that are suited to the rigours and demands of the live sound and touring industries.

Christian Poulsen, DPA's CEO, says, "We are excited to be exhibiting at the PLASA show this year with the UK being one of our key markets. With the new d:fine headset, d:facto vocal and d:vote instrument microphones, we are raising the bar for good sound in challenging environments, where DPA microphones have already set the standard for headset and miniature mics for many years. DPA's long list of fantastic references within theatre, broadcast, lives and installation environments proves the unique combination of high sound quality and reliability."

DPA will show its expanded d:fine series of headset microphones that recently won Live Design's Sound Product of the Year Award. Offering impressive gain before feedback and very stable construction, the unobtrusive d:fine headset microphones are easy to fit and provide a discreet microphone solution. The range, which is renowned for its audio accuracy, is available in both directional and omnidirectional options and in single or dual-ear designs with a choice of three lengths of microphone booms.

DPA will also be showing its new d:facto hand-held vocal mic, which offers an exceptionally natural sound, high separation from nearby sound sources and extreme sound level handling. In common with all DPA mics, d:facto features superior gain-before-feedback and combines a supercardiod pattern with superb definition to give high separation and true sound color on stage. d:facto also features an inbuilt 3-step pop protection grid that allows the artist's vocal performance to dominate by effectively removing unwanted noise.

PLASA visitors can win one of these ground-breaking microphones by getting their badge scanned at the DPA stand. One lucky visitor will be chosen at random and the winner will be announced after the show.

DPA will complete its PLASA 2012 line up with its popular range of d:vote 4099 instrument microphones. Designed for PA amplification and live recording, d:vote 4099 instrument microphones are tiny, elegant products that are extremely rugged and durable. Capable of handling high sound pressure levels and offering superior gain-before-feedback, these microphones live up to DPA's pedigree of breathtaking clarity and richness.

With their MicroDot connectors and the option of more than 35 DPA adapters, both d:fine headset microphones and d:vote instrument microphones are compatible with just about any wireless system. They can also be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via its supplied XLR connector.
