The Type 4041-SP is designed to work in a standard 48 V phantom power environment. Since the capsule is the same as for the high voltage alternative 4041-S, the 4041-SP offers the same superior sound quality, with very slight changes in the specifications.
The cartridge MMC4041 can be unscrewed from the preamplifier which allows for the exchange of the preamplifier module. It is therefore always possible to upgrade to the high voltage preamplifier, also using the DPA mic amp HMA5000.
The frequency response has a 4-6 dB soft lift around 8 kHz and matches the response of the legendary Type 4040 Hybrid Microphone. This microphone offers a totally transparent audio path with an exceptionally low noise floor of maximum 8 dB(A) and a SPL handling capability of 134 dB SPL peak.
