When the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston, Texas elected to update its wireless microphone system, the staff turned to AKGâ€™s frequency-agile DMS 700 after comparing it in a side-by-side test with competitors.
In updating the theaterâ€™s wireless audio system, Rob Slaughter of Hairel Enterprises was called on to carry out the installation, which consists of twenty-four channels each having both belt-pack and hand-held transmitters. Greg Stevens of AudioVend assisted Hairel Enterprises in commissioning the new system.
â€œWe wanted the DMS 700 because it, combined with other systems upgrades, gives us an all digital signal path for our wireless system, which couldnâ€™t quite be matched by other manufacturersâ€? said Cliff Presswood, one of the staff audio engineers at the Miller Outdoor Theater. â€œIn addition to the clear, articulate sound and wide tuning range, the DMS 700 gives us the flexibility to broadcast a very large number of channels simultaneously,
and really limits any distortion or high noise levels.â€?
â€œThe DMS 700 is designed to offer a level of flexibility that is unmatched by analogue systems or other digital wireless systems,â€? commented Joseph Wagoner, AKGâ€™s product manager for tour and installed sound. â€œItâ€™s ideal for any application where audio quality, channel quality and ease-of-use are important, which is what makes it the perfect selection for the Miller Outdoor Theater.â€?
