DPA Microphones DAD6001-BC Overview

The DPA DAD6001 is an adapter featuring XLR and Microdot connections allowing you to attach a miniature DPA microphone to a preamp, mixer, camera, or similar device able to supply phantom power.

The adapter is functional at 12V, but requires 48V for the connected mic to reach full specifications. The active-signal balanced wiring allows for longer cable runs with less noise—with a common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) that is better than 60 dB in the 50 Hz to 15 kHz range.

This version features a belt clip for added convenience in mobile situations. The belt clip can be removed for direct camera connections if desired.

Great adaptor for the DPA microdot systems. A little pricy but works as expected.

This is a very high quality adapter if you need to use 3 pin XLR connection. Just other DPA products, this one is a winner.

question

How do you connect the clip to the adapter? I'd hate to break my adapter!
Asked by: Shawn L.
The barrel with the XLR end comes screwed into the end with the female micro-dot connection to comprise the whole adapter. Where it screws together, butted between that connection between those two pieces is an approx ⅛" little plastic ring. When you want to use the belt clip, unscrew the two halves and replace the plastic ring (which will just fall off when the two piece are unscrewed) with the exact same size ring that is part of the belt clip. When you screw the two halves back together it makes the belt clip an integral part of the whole adaptor. And something helpful to add, you can screw the clip on in either direction so it faces either up or down the mic cable. It's actually made a very helpful difference a few times when attaching the clip to the performer (me) in different situations whether sitting or standing, etc.

Can I use this with a Shure 47 or Sanken COS11D Lav that has a microdot connector? If not, what is the best solution, please. Thanks
Asked by: Thomas
Any microphone with the Microdot connector is expecting a DC bias level to bias the electret capsule. Normally the microdot connector of a bodypack will have approx 5 V DC bias. This DPA adapter is not just a simple resistive divider - it has a complete circuit board with biasing circuit and buffer amplifier to drive long mic cables. I measured 8 V open-circuit, and 2.5 V with my DPA 4066 headset connected. This leads me to believe that the final DC voltage level will depend on the bias current drawn by the specific brand/model of electret mic you connect to it (but it will never exceed 8 V). So, although I have not tested the particular models you mentioned, I believe that any microphone with a microdot connector can be used with this adapter without risk of damage. This is certainly a very nicely-made adapter with no expense spared on the circuit from what I can see.

would phantom power from a cinema camera power this microphone unit or would you need mixer/recorder?
Asked by: Craig
Yes, this will work with any pre-amp that supplies 12v - 48v. If your camera has the option to switch the Phantom down to 12v, you should do so and save a little battery life.

question

How does one go about the actual wiring process between the microdot connection and the xlr?
Asked by: Doug B.
It just screws on. The XLR has a female microdot connector that mates with the male microdot connector of your DPA microphone.
