The new Mipro MA-101a is a wireless portable P.A. system featuring an ultracompact, lightweight form factor and Mipro’s ACT (Automatic Channel Targeting) technology.
The MA-101a is a UHF true-diversity, PLL system with 16 selectable frequencies, plus automatic channel scan and targeting capability. It is available in two versions: with a wireless handheld microphone (MA-101a/ACT-707HE) or with a bodypack transmitter for use with Mipro’s headworn and lavalier microphones or the MU-40GX instrument cable (MA-101a/ACT-707TE). The MA-101a is equipped with a storage compartment housing a shoulder strap for easy carrying and a threaded underside that enables the amplifier/loudspeaker component to be mounted on a conventional microphone stand for a more “fixed” placement.
The MA-101a’s Scan function automatically searches the local RF environment, identifies and then locks the receiver onto an available, interference-free frequency. Mipro’s ACT function then provides rapid and precise setup of the transmitter/wireless microphone to the same channel, at which point the system is ready for use.
Compatible with any ACT Series wireless transmitters and MM Series wired dynamic microphones, the MA-101a is driven by a 30-watt internal amplifier. With its line in jack, the MA-101a accepts input from portable CD/MP3 music players or other line-level sources. A line out jack facilitates hookup to an external recorder. The system can also provide up to eight hours of continuous operation per charge from its built-in rechargeable battery.
The MA-101a carries a MSRP of $ 725 for the handheld microphone version (MA-101a/ACT-707HE) and $700 for the version with the bodypack transmitter (MA-101a/ACT-707TE). The units are shipping.
