The Sennheiser Digital 9000 Wireless System:
The Digital 9000 Wireless System offers completely uncompressed and artifact free digital audio, combining sonic purity and outstanding dynamics. It’s the first digital wireless system that works without compression, allowing for full HD audio transmission. The system uses extremely steep filters to allow a very narrow set-up of the respective radio frequencies within the available frequency range. Through this, the risk of intermodulation is eliminated, allowing for the most reliable wireless operation.
Senheiser HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC:
The HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC is a solid-state amplifier that generates the ultimate acoustic performance when paired with any of Sennheiser’s audiophile headphones. It highlights crisp, balanced and distortion-free sound through a high-quality Burr-Brown digital/analog converter (DAC). The amplifier is outfitted with an symmetrical input socket, which allows for incoming signals to be symmetrized before processing takes place. The HDVD 800 also offers an extra USB input, allowing for 24 bit data transmission at 192 kHz.
Neumann KH 310 Monitor:
The Neumann KH 310 monitor can be used in a wide range of acoustical conditions in a variety of locations such as project and recording studios, broadcast centers and OB vans. Its many uses range from a near-field monitor, a front loudspeaker in mid-sized multi-channel systems, or a rear loudspeaker in a larger multi-channel system. The KH 310 is a three-way active tri-amplified monitor utilizing Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ Waveguide (MMD™). It offers flexible acoustical controls, various input options, and a wide range of mounting hardware.
