A complete stereo pair; two handpicked omnidirectional condenser microphones, selected on sensitivity within ±1.5 dB. Small, lightweight and inconspicuous main AB stereo pair.
The mics deliver precise sound and true tone. Meeting classic architecture and installation requirements, these mics can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings.
This condenser mic bridges the gap between the extreme sound quality of the d:dicate Microphones series and our well-known Miniature Microphones in the d:screet and d:fine series.
The microphone capsule
Inside this capsule, two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth.
The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate Microphone series preamplifiers instead of the tiny miniature FET ones. This gives the sound more air and precision.
Comparisons with its big brother, the iconic MMC4006 capsule, are inevitable. The relationship between the two can be clearly heard. The MMC2000 series performs as well as more exclusive microphones. It is a premium-class mic capsule and redefines the term value for money.
A truly flexible range
The d:dicate 2006C Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone, Compact is part of the flexible d:dicate Microphones Series. It combines the MMC2006 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Capsule with the MMP-C compact preamplifier. This combination offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more "body" to the low end than the d:dicate 2006A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone. It is also much easier to position than other cardioid mics.
Another option, for the true audiophile, is the d:dicate 2006A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone. It offers low distortion and totally accurate and faithful sound.
At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate 2006C Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate or d:facto Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
