Today at InfoComm 08, AKG Acoustics announced the release of the new D7 vocal microphone. Like its popular predecessor the D5, the D7 is a dynamic microphone that delivers incredibly clear sound for lead and backing vocals for live sound applications. The D7 additionally features an improved capsule design with a humbucking coil and a high-pass filter along with a sleek new look.
AKG`s newest dynamic microphone features a humbucking coil that greatly reduces electrical interference and stage feedbackâ€”ensuring that only pure vocal sounds come through. The D7 also features an integrated high-pass filter that cuts out low frequencies, eliminates handling noise, and provides better audio clarity. The result is a higher-quality microphone that offers complete control for singers and announcers and, therefore, a better audio experience for audiences.
â€œOur goal in creating the D7 was to build upon the success of our D5 microphone and take microphone performance and reliability to the next level,â€? explained Thomas Umbauer, Product Manager, AKG Acoustics. â€œThe humbucking coil and high-pass filtering featured in the D7 design ensure that musicians and presenters alike will experience unsurpassed sound quality and lasting durability.â€?
The D7 delivers high-end sonic performance thanks to its new Laminated Varimotion diaphragm. This design allows the diaphragm to be fine-tuned without extra tuning resonators and represents a giant leap forward in audio performance. The D7 response evokes the subtle, open sound of a condenser microphone, while maintaining the rugged reliability of a dynamic microphone.
The D7 comes complete with a carrying case, mounting clamp, and a replacement windscreen, ensuring long life for the microphone. Two additional models are also available: the D7-S, which features an on/off switch; and the D7-WL1 microphone capsule for use with AKG wireless systems.
â€œWe designed the D7 microphone to be the best hand-held microphone for vocals, with performance that stands on the leading edge of dynamic microphone technology,â€? added Umbauer. â€?The D7 illustrates AKGâ€™s commitment to innovation and our dedication to providing the very best microphones in the industry.â€?
