The DGT 650 is meant to establish a new class in the USB microphone segment – and it’s got some serious points in its favor.
It supports ASIO for Windows and OS X Core Audio – and is also easily combined with mobile devices. To maximize its mobile abilities, it can be powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery. Other onboard features include an analog preamp, a switchable high-pass filter, two pre-attenuation settings and four different recording modes.
In stereo mode, the two condenser capsules provide a 90° XY stereo signal. Cardioid mode offers a cardioid pattern for recording speech or singing. In Singer/Songwriter mode, the DGT 650 can simultaneously put out both a mono signal and a line signal. For the stereo line-in mode, finally, there’s a stereo input that makes possible two-channel recording from a mixer or other line source. All of these modes allow the additional inclusion of a MIDI signal.
With a dynamic range that exceeds 110 dB-A, 24-bit resolution, high-quality accessories, and the unaltered, authentic sound that’s so typical of LEWITT, the DGT 650 can confidently take its place at the top of the field of currently available USB microphones.
