AKG Acoustics' new TriPower Series microphones offers a choice ofeither wired or wireless operation with the same microphone.

The D 3700M (shown) and D 3800M uses AKG's patented VarimotionSystem, which allows the transducer's response to be fine tuned as thediaphragm is molded. The top-of-the-line C 5900M has excellentarticulation, but without the "reach" that can cause audio problems onlive stages. The spring steel-wire mesh cap with integrated foam screenprovides rugged durability and reliable control of wind noise, and themechanical system is very strong and can handle lots of abuse. Theyalso have a new look and feel with ergonomic triangular handles.

The D 3700M is a dynamic cardioid and the D 3800M is a dynamicsupercardioid for use on loud stages and adds a humbucking coil forfreedom from electrical interference; the C 5900M is a condensersupercardioid with the clarity of a condenser and features alow-frequency roll-off and -6dB pads. All TriPower models are shippedin a metal hard-shell road case and come with the new SA 61 unbreakablestand clamp.

An option for the new TriPower Line is the AKG TM 40 UHF plug-intransmitter. The TM 40 connects quickly and easily to the D 3700M, D3800M and C 5900M, allowing each microphone to be switched from wiredto wireless. The TM 40 is compatible with AKG's WMS40 UHFreceivers.

The list price of the AKG D 3700M is $195; the same model with aswitch is $210. The list price of the AKG D 3800M is $252; the switchedversion is $266. The AKG C 5900M has a list price of $398. All TriPowermodels come with a two-year parts-and-labor warranty from AKG.
