At NSCA, AKG Acoustics introduced its new wireless WMS 4000 microphone system, a true-diversity wireless system that is flexible enough for multi-users and multichannel applications.

According to Tom Stotler, AKG’s market development manager, music and touring sound, “The WMS 4000 is very rugged and extremely reliable in environments hostile to RF transmission.”

WMS 4000 Components and optional accessories include: The SR 4000 is a true-diversity, frequency-agile UHF receiver on a 30MHz-wide UHF-wide bandwidth containing preset intermodulation-free frequencies and access to up to 1,200 switchable frequencies. Three separate 30MHz channels may be selected for use in the U.S., offering a maximum of approximately 50 usable channels that are limited only to other external RF interference.Dynamic range is greater than 112 dB; an Output Level switch allows the selection of three output levels at -30, 0, +6 dB.

The PT 4000 bodypack and the HT 4000 handheld UHF transmitters incorporate programmed, prematched, optimized frequency groups that allow for quick, easy frequency selection. Other features include backlit LCD for system status monitoring and a jog wheel for quick system setup and navigation. These transmitters are encased in magnesium metal chassis for rugged onstage use, and have a usable operation distance of up to 330 feet. with a system audio bandwidth from 35 Hz to 20 kHz.

The CU 4000 charging unit features two charging bays that are designed to hold two separate HT 4000 handheld, PT 4000 transmitters or BP 4000 battery packs. The CU 4000 can charge two battery packs simultaneously in one hour. A three-step LED on the CU 4000 displays the charging status. It can be powered by either an external DC adapter or by the optional PSU 4000 central power supply.
