In order to give customers as much choice as possible, DPA Microphones is unveiling new color options for its powerful 6000 series of Subminiature Microphones so that they can be more closely matched to the wearer’s skin tone and clothing. At ISE 2020 (Amptec Booth 7-V245), DPA will show its Red Dot Award-winning 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone, in brown, black and beige, and its 6060 and 6061 Lavalier Microphones, in brown, white, black and beige.
Already one of the smallest and most inconspicuous bodyworn microphones on the market, the 6000 series will now be even less obtrusive, leaving presenters, artists and audiences free to focus on content and performance rather than technology. “Our 6000 series mics already look and sound great, but with these new color options, we are further adding to their appeal by enhancing their virtual invisibility,” says Anne Berggrein, Vice President of Marketing at DPA. “In addition to being sleek and elegant, both the headset and lavalier microphones in our 6000 series range are incredibly easy to fit and comfortable to wear, making them ideal for even the most inexperienced artists and presenters.”

Danley Sound Labs Installs “Hi-Fi” System at First Baptist Church Smithville

First Baptist Church of Smithville, Tennessee is the sort of small town Baptist church that has served as a community hub for decades. Its sanctuary is a very traditional rectangular Baptist-style building that seats around 400 people, with a small balcony, a high ceiling, pews, and carpet. Services continue to call on a talented choir, but these voices are mixed these days with an equally-talented band, making First Baptist Church solidly committed to a blended service. Design and integration firm Centerline Audio Visual recently installed an elegant Danley Sound Labs “hi-fi” system to make the emotional impact of the church’s services commensurate with the soul that is being poured into them from the musicians, pastor and guests.
“First Baptist Church of Smithville reached out to us based on a referral from another client who was very pleased with the Danley system we had installed for them,” explained Scott Oliver, president of Centerline Audio Visual. “The existing system at First Baptist was in terrible shape. A lot of the loudspeaker drivers were blown and the whole thing was really only marginally functional. I didn’t need to ask them what was wrong with their existing system, it was obvious. But I did go over all of their current and future needs so that we could deliver a system that would capably meet those needs without going overboard. I met with them, measured the acoustical properties of the room, and built out a model in EASE. From there, I found the ideal Danley loudspeaker configuration that would cover the congregation in glorious stereo without hitting the walls or ceiling.”
