NAMM: Sennheiser 3000 Series


The 3000 Series wireless monitor transmitters and receivers comprises the SR3254-U single-channel transmitter, SR3256-U dual-channel transmitter and EK3253-U bodypack receiver, which are compatible with Sennheiser Evolution Series wireless G2 monitor products. The new units offer extended tuning flexibility and 100mW output.

Sennheiser SR3256-U

The new 3250 Series transmitters incorporate the HDX compander technology used in Sennheiser's G2 wireless equipment, achieving noise suppression of up to 90 dB and ensuring a wide dynamic range and crystal-clear monitoring signals. Operating over the G2 products' A, B and C ranges, the new receiver and transmitters offer a 36MHz switching bandwidth and are tunable in 5kHz steps across the frequency range, offering a total of 7,200 frequencies. All three products ship with 16 pre-coordinated preset frequencies and 16 user-assignable presets. Both transmitters can be switched between mono and stereo mode and have a backlit LCD. These products are supplied with integrated power supply unit, rackmount "ears" and either one (SR3254) or two telescopic antennas (SR3256).

The system's bodypack receiver, the EK3253, is 20-percent smaller than its predecessor but more robust. Both the body and the battery cover are now made of metal. A backlit display makes the menu-controlled operation even more user-friendly. A pilot tone-controlled squelch allows noise-free switching in stereo mode. The receiving frequency is adjustable in 5kHz increments. The receiver also has a Scan function making it easy to search for free transmission channels. The compact, EK3253 is equipped with a Focus function, enabling artists to create their own special mix from their own audio signal and the overall mix. The receiver comes complete with batteries and a pair of IE 4 stereo ear-canal phones.
