Sony’s pre-packaged UHF wireless mic systems can now be ordered as separate components.
"Our UWP wireless microphone systems have quickly developed a devoted following because they offer high-quality performance at a reasonable price for today's musicians," said Paul Foschino, senior manager for professional audio at Sony Electronics. "Outfitted with rugged housings, these handhelds have internal antennas and a battery life that lasts nearly six hours, providing working musicians with a reliable wireless system. The added versatility of separate components makes our UWP systems even more attractive. Musicians can build on pre-packaged combinations or create their own custom configurations from scratch. The added flexibility makes these systems the ones that musicians can grow with."
The systems' UHF transmissions are less susceptible to interference and dropouts typical with lower-cost VHF systems. Added enhancements include PLL (Phase Locked Loop) circuitry; belt packs and mic transmitters with LCDs to display the system's complete status information; and tone-squelch circuitry automatically removes ambient noise to produce a clean, crisp sound.
