With a true studio sound for the live stage, this latest addition to the d:facto line offers an extraordinarily natural sound, high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances. In addition to use with the new wired DPA handle, the d:facto II provides singers and engineers with the added benefit of a state-of-the-art adapter system that allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems.
“We are extremely proud to have developed an ingenious adapter range that brings the true DPA sound out of a wireless system,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “The wireless systems currently available deliver very limited power to drive the capsule, so getting the sound quality we wanted was nearly impossible. We had to be creative and put a huge amount of work and thought into the electronic circuit of the adapter solution. To my knowledge, no-one else has been able to be so true to the input of the vocalist. We wanted to make the best vocal microphone on the market, and with the d:facto we have reached this goal.”
The new d:facto II guarantees users exceptional DPA sound with popular existing wireless systems such as Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser. The d:facto II provides improved audio performance as it is superbly linear in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, while its impressive definition and accuracy reproduces a singer’s voice effortlessly.

The flexibility of its inventive adapter system gives the user simple and very affordable possibilities of choosing either a wired DPA handle or the professional wireless system of their choosing, with no loss in the sound quality.”
Suitablefor live sound and recording applications, DPA Microphones is convinced that the d:facto II will be an instant favourite of live sound engineers. Its simple plug-and-play features allow it to reproduce a natural sound while achieving an extreme sound level handling of 160 dB. The d:facto II is designed to provide superior gain before feedback, features a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone to remove unwanted noise as well as isolation from handling noise.
