Technologies for Worship Magazine tests a pair of 4097 choir mics.
"The DPA 4097s provided impressive choir audio capture. Perhaps the greatest thing about the 4097s (and really all DPA mics) is the transparency and authenticity they bring to the production.
From the perspective of my ear and those on staff, the sound they capture is clear and precise; what the audience hears really sounds like the sound source.
We tried the 4097s for three weeks within our full mic array, and our full 120-member choir. The choir-specific mics enhanced our performance and captured/amplified an authentic sound indicative of the amazing voices of our choir. The resulting audio was very warm-sounding, and never harsh or tinny."
