Favorite DPA Microphones

My favourite DPA mic is by far the 5100 Mobile Surround... I love to use it on Static Interviews on location... Since we record 6 separate channels when using the 5100, I use an additional track on which i use a lapel 6071 for the interview itself like we would do normally... Then in post, I replace the Centre Channel from the 5.1 with my 6071 track and there we go... A proper interview audio in 3D environment.... I love this Microphone... Fantastic....
