Longmont, CO, February, 2009 – DPA Microphones has joined the METAlliance(tm) Pro Partners, it was announced by President Bruce Myers. “When invited to join the METAlliance by founders George Massenburg and Chuck Ainlay, we needed to look no further than their mission statement to see how closely aligned in philosophy they are with DPA Microphones,” stated Myers. “At DPA we have always been committed to producing microphones of the highest sonic quality.
“We are honored to work with recording engineers who understand that the qualities of the microphones they have chosen, along with a signal path that is beyond reproach, is the only possible way to ensure that the highest standards of audio production are achieved,” Myers continued. “The METAlliance was founded by just that type of engineering mindset and represents to DPA a group of dedicated individuals who have banded together to assure high resolution, musically accurate reproduction.”
George Massenburg remarked, “DPA microphones have long been one of my most essential tools; certain of their mics are no less than irreplaceable.” Fellow METAlliance co-director Chuck Ainlay added, “When I think of DPA microphones I think of quality, purity and excellence. It makes me very proud that DPA felt compelled to join us in our mission to promote audio quality.”
DPA Microphones began in 1992 when Bruel & Kjaer, Denmark’s venerable measurement equipment manufacturer, spun off its specialist pro audio division to former employees Morten Stove and Ole Brosted Sorensen, designers of the microphones. Starting with sales and service of the industry standard Series 4000 Professional Recording Microphones, DPA is constantly expanding into new application areas, developing new products and pushing back the frontiers of audio technology.
DPA Microphones’ philosophy is based on a commitment to provide audio professionals with microphone solutions of the highest professional caliber. For years, this philosophy has been the driving force behind their product development and success. The result is an ever-expanding product portfolio of microphones and accessories that offer a variety of professional solutions.
Recognizing the industry’s success in bringing products offering convenience and low cost, the METAlliance is dedicated to the passionate commitment of securing the art of music through recording technologies that best deliver the music in all its many modern forms. To do this, quality needs to be recognized and supported.
