Old Lyme, CT (October 1, 2013)—Specialty audio and backline services company Jonas Productions, Inc. recently purchased a Sennheiser Digital 9000 wireless system, which it used at many major shows and music festivals this year, including a Harry Connick Jr. tour.
On its touring operation with Harry Connick, Jr., Jonas Productions is using the Digital 9000 in conjunction with a Midas digital console. “We use the Midas interface right out of the Digital 9000, and maintain a digital signal right from the microphone itself all the way to the speaker box,” said Ted Jonas, owner of Jonas Productions, Inc. “And we can have the digital split to monitors and front of house.”
“We were making a large purchase and upgrading some of our Sennheiser G2 wireless units,” he added. “We always try to stay on the cutting edge of technology with what’s new, and we knew the Harry Connick Jr. tour was coming up. We were so pleased with the system that we ended up purchasing quite a few of the Sennheiser SKM 5200 handheld transmitters as well as the Digital 9000 system itself. You want to make sure that the system is both expandable and flexible, and that the expected longevity of the product is there so you can realize your investment.”
