LCBC Church, with 14 campuses through Central Pennsylvania, is among the first houses of worship to utilize DPA’s 6066 CORE subminiature headset microphones – one for each of its two primary communicators,
“Our teaching team has been using DPA’s 4066 headset mics for years,” says Sean McDermott, production director for LCBC Church. “We’ve always appreciated the audio quality and reliability of that solution. When DPA introduced the 6066, we knew it was an obvious upgrade that would provide a more comfortable experience for our communicators, the classic natural DPA sound and an improved look for our broadcasts.
The 6066 is outfitted with the company’s CORE technology in a small capsure measuring 3 mm (0.12 in) in diameter. When LCBC has in-person serves, it averages an attendance of 16,000, while its online audience continues to grow. Therefore, it’s a priority for LCBC’s audio staff to outfit its communicators with discreet mics designed to provide a high level of sound quality.
“There are no other headset mics out there that offer the same benefits as the 6066,” adds McDermott. “Our communicators really appreciate the redesigned ear grips and cable management, and our video team loves how the smaller element blends in on camera. The new locking boom also ensures that the mic element is in the right place, every time. In addition, the replaceable cable is a must for headset mics. Our teaching pastors almost forget they are wearing the headset mic because it is so comfortable.”
