2006A TWIN DIAPHRAGM OMNIDIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE

Product Details

MSRP $949.95 excl. local VAT
Product ID 2006A
The d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Microphone features our linear omnidirectional MMC2006 mic capsule on our MMP-A pre-amp. The distinctive sound is well balanced.

This condenser mic bridges the gap between the extreme sound quality of the d:dicate™ Microphones series and our well-known Miniature Microphones in the d:screet™ and d:fine™ series.
 

The microphone capsule

Inside this capsule, two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth.

The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate™ Microphone series preamplifiers instead of the tiny miniature FET ones. This gives the sound more air and precision.

Comparisons with its big brother, the iconic MMC4006 capsule, are inevitable. The relationship between the two can be clearly heard. The MMC2000 series performs as well as more exclusive microphones. It is a premium-class mic capsule and redefines the term value for money.
 

A truly flexible range

The d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omni Microphone is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphone series. It combines the MMC2006 Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Capsule, with the MMP-A preamplifier. This combination is for the true audiophile. It offers low distortion and totally accurate and faithful sound.

Another option, the d:dicate™ 2006C Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Microphone, Compact offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Microphone.

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.

The d:dicate™ 2006A Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional Microphone is available as a sensitivity-selected stereo pair, ST2006A.
