In the SOS review of the new Neumann MCM instrument miking system in our February 2023 issue, we stated that its modularity gave it an advantage over some rivals including the DPA 4099.
This is true of the original, now-discontinued 4099, which our reviewer had available for comparison. However, DPA have asked us to point out that is not the case with their current 4099 Core system. This is indeed modular, and does allow individual elements to be swapped out or replaced.
Apologies for the confusion!
