LSA's Mark Johnson investigates our new d:screet™
CORE 6061 subminiature lav mic and comes up with one of the most original analogies with regard to its tiny size so far:
"What amazes me is how much more DPA was able to miniaturize its CORE amplifier circuitry from the first iteration. It kind of reminds me of the 1966 science-fiction movie Fantastic Voyage, in which a team of five people and deep-sea submarine are miniaturized down to microbe size and injected into the bloodstream of a scientist who needs precision surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain.
For the 6061, DPA has taken some already pretty impressive miniaturized circuitry and shrunk it even more. It’s also notable that this tiny mic sounds so good. Besides film, television, and theatre, I can imagine that some creative audio people will be coming up with additional applications as well.
(...) Spoiler alert: In Fantastic Voyage, the procedure is ultimately successful (though not without the requisite suspense and drama) and the team is able to get out of the scientist in the nick of time. For the mic: There actually is no spoiler. It is consistent with other products from DPA: high- quality design, construction, and performance, coupled with imminently useful accessories. And did I say that this mic is tiny?"
