First UK sale of DPA's d:facto II vocal microphone

Sound hire company RNSS has ordered the UK’s first d:facto II vocal microphones. Their purchase was based on its experience with the original d:facto mic at the London Jazz Festival, an annual event produced in association with BBC Radio 3.   Richard Nowell (pictured), director of RNSS, said: “We have had a long association with DPA Microphones and already carry a large stock of the company’s products. I was intrigued by the new d:facto vocal microphone and was keen to try it out. The Jazz Festival gave us the perfect opportunity to put it through its paces.   “We borrowed two d:factos from DPA’s UK distributor Sound Network and used them as high end alternatives to our usual vocal mics. They performed flawlessly and delivered exceptional sound that was much appreciated by the artists and the sound crew.”   DPA says the new d:facto II provides improved audio performance over the original d:facto with the added benefit of a new wired DPA handle, and an adapter system that allows for seamless integration with professional wireless systems including Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser.   RNSS will be taking delivery of its new DPA d:facto II microphones in a few weeks time:   ”We have decided to buy six of the new d:facto II microphones so that we can use them with our existing wireless systems,” said Nowell. ”We see huge potential for these microphones as rental items because they are so versatile. The adapter system will give our customers plenty of options as they can either use a wired DPA handle or the professional wireless system of their choosing, with no loss in the sound quality.”
