In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Image, Product News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

DPA Microphones recently upgraded its renowned 4098 Gooseneck Microphone to include its CORE by DPA technology. With this update, the 4098 CORE mic will join DPA’s other CORE products in offering minimal distortion across the entire dynamic range, increasing audio clarity and openness and further enhancing DPA’s already stellar sound. Perfect for both podium and conference room mic’ing, the DPA 4098 CORE is the ideal solution for instances when high speech intelligibility is paramount. This has proven especially true for today’s socially distanced, video conferencing world.

“When we first launched CORE by DPA, we knew we wanted to implement this technology into all DPA mics to provide an even greater user experience,” says René Moerch, product manager at DPA Microphones. “By increasing the dynamic range of the mics, CORE by DPA extends the point at which the distortion is just starting to become audible. Incorporating this technology to the 4098 allows presenters, politicians, pastors, instructors, and more, to be heard through the mic as though they are speaking to the viewer/listener directly.”

LOS PENTECOSTALES DE NEWPORT NEWS INSTALLS PERMANENT DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS, SUBWOOFERS, MONITORS AND AMP

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Image, Install News, Web Articlesby Media

Los Pentecostales de Newport News is a Pentecostal church serving the Hispanic community in Newport News, Virginia. With seemingly-boundless energy, Pastor Mario Zunzunegui delivers impassioned services and encourages strong community bonds. The band that supports him is talented and sounds its best at high volume and with abundant bass. Los Pentecostales had a high-performance sound reinforcement system that most churches – and indeed many clubs – would find more than adequate. But when local production and integration firm Sound Ideas provided a Danley rig for an outdoor Covid-19 service, Pastor Mario and the rest of the congregation saw new possibilities for clarity and impact. After a successful indoor demo, the church now has its own high-impact Danley system composed of SM80F full range loudspeakers FLX12 monitors, and a DNA 20k4 Pro amplifier.

Los Pentecostales de Newport started out years ago with an MI-grade sound reinforcement system and upgraded significantly three years ago with the help of Sound Ideas (design and installation) and Winter Sound (the actual sale of the equipment). Sound Ideas owner Paul Popadak continued his involvement with the church maintaining the new system. Thus, when Pastor Mario heard that Popadak was helping area churches deliver outdoor services during Virginia’s Covid-19 lockdown, he asked him to help at Los Pentecostales.
