DPA Microphones introduced its d:facto II Vocal Microphone ($TBA)at the 2013 NAMM Show. Designed for both sound reinforcement and recording applications, the latest addition to the d:facto line promises natural sound with high separation and extreme SPL handling.

In addition to use with the new wired DPA handle, the d:facto II provides singers and engineers with a state-of-the-art adapter system, which allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems.

The new d:facto II offers DPA's sound with existing wireless systems from companies such as Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom, and Sennheiser. The d:facto II also promises improved audio performance with linear characteristics in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, with definition and accuracy for a singer’s voice.

According to DPA, its plug-and-play features allow it to reproduce an extraordinary natural sound, up to 160dB SPL. The d:facto II offers superior gain before feedback, and includes a three-stage pop protection grid that is built into the microphone to remove unwanted noise. It also promises exceptional isolation from handling noise as well as the ability to accommodate extreme sound levels.

The cabled version of the d:facto II, as well as the adapters for Shure, Sony, Lectrosonics and Wisycom, will be available in February 2013. The adapters for the Sennheiser systems will be available in March 2013.
