The DPA Audio 4006 is, without a doubt, the most popular microphone in
the DPA 4000 series. Since its release in 1982, it has become
worldwide studio standard microphone. It's been rated "Class
A" in Stereophile Magazine's Recommended Components List for as long as
we can remember.
The 4006 is an omnidirectional condenser microphone
using a 1/2-inch diameter diaphragm, with an extremely flat frequency
response, high sensitivity and a low noise-floor.
The 4006 is phantom powered (P48), which together with the extended
range of acoustic pressure equalizers and protection grids, turns the
4006 into an extremely cost effective solution. All in all, the Type
4006 has up to 7 different acoustic signatures.
The 4006 has gained its reputation through its total transparency in
both the near-field and in the diffuse field.
