DPA Microphones 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone

Mobile surround microphone that is compact and easy to use with 5 miniature transducers
MFR# 5100

Product Description

The DPA d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone is compact and easy to use. The mic combines stunning sound quality with a plug-and-play solution. It brings engaging surround ambience to sport events, documentaries and other HDTV productions. The mic requires no external signal processing. This microphone is versatile. You can mount it in many ways: on a camera, microphone stand, suspended from the ceiling or via a hand grip. It is lightweight and portable. It can also withstand inclement weather conditions due to its robust nature.

The d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone is a completely self-contained plug-and-play solution for 5.1 audio capture. It uses five miniature pressure transducers. These transducers have low sensitivity to wind and mechanical noise, low distortion and low-frequency response. They also have a large dynamic range. Appropriate channel separation and directionality is achieved by combining the use of DPA Microphones’ proprietary Directional Pressure Microphone (DiPMic™) technology with the use of acoustic baffles. DiPMic™ mounts interference tubes on the L/C/R omnidirectional capsules. Acoustic baffles preserve the accuracy of levels between the discrete analog output channels.

The three front microphones in this system are time aligned to eliminate comb filtering. This also ensures frequency consistency when down mixing to stereo or mono. In contrast, the rear microphones, with standard omnidirectional patterns, are optimally spaced from both each other and the front array to simulate the most natural time arrival differences. The LFE (0.1) channel is comprised of a L/R sum, which is then attenuated 10 dB in comparison with the signal from the main channels. This is in accordance with the 5.1 format.

The d:mension™ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone provides a surround atmosphere that is rich, smooth and enveloping. It is great in its coherence, channel separation and localization accuracy.

The 5.1 output of the microphone runs through a multipin Lemo connector. This connector carries all six electronically-balanced channels. The microphone comes with a five-meter (16 ft), six-pair Mogami that cable breaks out to six Neutrik XLR-M connectors.

Features:

  • Plug-and-play solution
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Rich, smooth and fully enveloping sound
  • Discrete 5.1 analog output – no processing needed

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
