AKG Launches DMS 700 Digital Wireless System At Winter NAMM ‘09

Today at Winter NAMM’09, AKG launched the DMS 700 digital wireless microphone system, offering digital audio encryption, ultra wide tuning range and high channel count in 19-inch chassis.

The DMS 700 operates with two frequency bands with each band providing a tuning range of up to 155 MHz of receivers and transmitters giving the user extended flexibility in today’s crowded RF environment.

The clean digital audio transmission eliminates the distortion and significant noise levels at the higher audio frequencies that is typically produced by analog systems. The DMS 700 offers 155 MHz of bandwidth, which provides a robust and versatile operation.

The encrypted digital audio transmission enables users to broadcast sensitive audio information and each channel can be secured with its own encryption key to keep the information absolutely confidential.

Featuring the ability to operate up to 100 channels simultaneously, the digital audio transmission system provides a better resistance to interference from other transmissions and an infrared link between receiver and transmitter offers a quick system setup for easy and user-friendly operation.

DSR 700 Digital Stationary Receiver

The 1U rack mountable DSR 700 digital receiver features encryption and 155 MHz tuning range ensuring future operation. The internal digital signal processor provides an array of audio features such as a low cut, 3-Band Equalizer, dbx compressor and dbx limiter. The built in spectrum analyzer displays the frequency range to enhance the operation and control of the radio spectrum.

The DSR 700 also features Harman HiQnet, allowing it to be networked with Crown amps and JBL loudspeakers and other Harman Products whilst also allowing for easy software updates of all system components.

The DHT700 Transmitter has a rugged metal housing, a built-in helical antenna and 50mW RF output power that provides for optimal and reliable transmission.

It is outfitted with AKG’s top-selling D5 dynamic microphone capsule for lead and backing vocals. The patented Laminate Varimotion diaphragm accompanies the supercardiod polar pattern to provide users with higher gain before feedback than typical hand held vocal mics. AKG’s C5 condenser microphone capsule with a cardioid polar pattern is also available.

The DPT 700 Bodypack transmitter accepts both microphone and line-level input signals with no need to adjust the input sensitivity. This unique feature guarantees a failure-proof operation and the professional TB3M audio input supports a broad range of headsets, lavalieres and instrument microphones.

AKG’s battery life of eight hours of operation from two regular AA size batteries remains consistent in the DPT700 as with other AKG wireless systems.

AKG’s CU 700 is a fast charger that rapidly charges the rechargeable batteries inside the transmitter without damaging the cells’ elements. The microprocessor-controlled charger determines the optimum charge current and has a cooling fan to help keep the temperature of the cells in a controlled environment.

Charging is terminated when both batteries are fully charged. The CU 700 charger uses the DC Pulse Technology in which a pulse is fed to the battery with a strictly controlled rise time, pulse width, pulse repetition rate and amplitude.

With pulse charging, high instantaneous voltages can be applied without overheating the battery.

Tour Sound Product Marketing Manager for AKG Wolfgang Fritz states, “AKG is very proud to launch this tremendous product at NAMM to so many distinguished members of the media. AKG is dedicated to designing top-of-the-line products that benefit a wide range of users and the revolutionary DMS 700 demonstrates that very clearly.”
