Close your eyes and listen. From the subtlest nuances of a solo violin or vocalist to the thunderous intensity of a full brass section or drum kit, it’s all there, spectacularly pure and uncolored. The sound is so crisp and detailed that you begin to create a mental picture of what the recording environment looked like. The microphones responsible? DPA, of course.
From B&K to DPA
Although DPA has technically only been in existence since 1992, our company draws on more than five decades of world-class microphone design experience going back to the first range of measurement microphones created by our progenitor, Brüel & Kjær, in the 1950s.
Rapid growth and rabid fans
Over the years, we have expanded from a tiny initial staff of only two people to well over 100 and are now represented by professional audio distributors and dealers in more than 40 countries around the world. In the past five years alone, we have experienced an average annual growth of 25 percent, and, in 2007, were presented with the prestigious King Frederik IX’s award for outstanding contribution to Danish export.
What’s our secret?
The reason for our success is simple: DPA’s ultimate goal is to provide you – whether you’re in live sound, recording, theater or broadcast – with the absolute finest possible microphone solutions for your tasks. We take no shortcuts in our design processes nor make any compromises in our manufacturing, which is all done in Denmark. As a result, our products are globally praised for their exceptional clarity and transparency, superb specifications, supreme reliability and, above all, pure, uncolored and undistorted sound.
Regardless of whether you are a longtime DPA user or potential new customer, we thank you for your interest in our products and look forward to delighting you beyond your expectations.
