UK - Sony has announced the launch of its newest wireless microphone series, the new 2.4GHz DWZ. This, the company says, "combines ease of use, superb RF transmission reliability and high sound quality into four affordable and highly flexible packages".
The new 2.4GHz DWZ series includes combinations of hand-held mics, bodypack transmitters and rack-mount or compact size receivers, with various components for use by musicians, or in classroom, corporate, house of-worship or government applications, the company says.
The DWZ Series includes: DWZ-B30GB Digital Wireless Package-Guitar kit, DWZ-B70HL Digital Wireless Package-Headset and Lavalier kit, DWZ-M50 Digital Wireless Package-Vocal Set and DWZ-M70 Digital Wireless Package-Vocal/Speech kit.
"The DWZ series builds on Sony's extensive wireless expertise to deliver the most flexibility and the highest levels of performance," said Markus Warlich, Product Specialist for Professional Audio, Sony Europe. "These new packages are ideal for small to mid-size wireless audio applications, combining outstanding sound quality, stable transmission, performance and durability."
Features include 24-bit linear PCM digital audio transmission; Two modes of 2.4GHz frequency selection (wide band frequency hopping for simple operation or narrow band frequency hopping for coordinated spectrum use); Rack-mount receivers with integrated colour LCD and built-in digital EQ; Interchangeable handheld capsule design supports Sony or third-party mic capsules; Balanced and unbalanced audio outputs.
The DWZ-M50 Vocal Set includes a uni-directional dynamic interchangeable microphone capsule with a stylish handheld transmitter and half-rack size receiver, ideal for vocal applications. The DWZ-GB30 Guitar Set includes a bodypack transmitter with guitar cable and compact size receiver supporting 3-way powering (AC adapter, 9V battery, external DC) and cable tone control.
The DWZ-M70 Vocal/Speech kit includes a uni-directional dynamic interchangeable microphone capsule, handheld transmitter and half-rack size receiver with advanced DSP functions.
