Lectrosonics, a leading manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products in Rio Rancho, N.M., introduces the HH Handheld Transmitter ($1,500 MSRP; without capsule), the newest addition to its line of Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone systems offering compandor-free audio. The new microphone can accept third party, thread-on capsules and offers broad input gain range.
Offering a slim, elegant design, the new HH transmitter accepts standard thread-on capsules from a number of manufacturers, giving users the freedom to select the microphone capsule that is best suited for a particular application. The new HH transmitter offers 44 dB of input gain range to accommodate a variety of capsule sensitivities and source volume differences. Two capsules are available from Lectrosonics: the HHC cardioid condenser ($540 MSRP) and the HHS supercardioid condenser ($658 MSRP).
The Lectrosonics HH transmitter is equipped with a membrane switch control panel/high-resolution LCD display. Designed to facilitate intuitive operation and setup, this menu-driven system offers operating frequency, audio modulation level, battery status, and additional operating parameters.
The HH transmitter offers a talkback feature that enables communication between the performer and, for example, the front-of-house mix engineer. Lectrosonics states that it will announce a firmware update adding talkback mode for the Lectrosonics Venue receiver system.
The HH transmitter is powered by 2 AA batteries and offers selectable RF power at 50 or 100 mW. The transmitter will be available in all Lectrosonics standard frequency blocks for both U.S. and export markets.
Lectrosonics states that product delivery is slated for Q3, 2011.
