"The DMS Tetrad delivers clean high-quality audio, is incredibly easy to set up and use, doesn’t require an operating licence and can be used worldwide”.
Ideal for a variety of applications ranging from concerts and clubs, to conferences, the AKG DMS Tetrad offers uncompressed audio transmission, superior RF performance and 128-bit AES standard encryption. SOS review AKG’s latest wireless microphone system in the new issue of the magazine.
"Although these days we expect ‘plug and play’ operation from most of our audio equipment, wireless mics (especially when used in multiples) can still be tricky unless they incorporate automatic channel-seeking and Tx/Rx pairing functions, which are generally only found on more upmarket models. The Tetrad system really is about as easy as it gets — the single supplied transmitter is preconfigured to operate on channel one of the receiver, so as soon as they are both switched on they will just work, right out of the box”.
"I used the DMS Tetrad on three live shows and let various people use it in the rehearsal studio. Everyone who tried it liked both the sound quality and the feel of the handheld mic itself; I used the sensitivity switch in the ‘high’ position all the time and didn’t encounter any situations where the mic struggled to handle strong vocals. I experimented with transmit distances, and achieved good stable results at 30m in the open air (the same length as my Cat 5 cable on that occasion, and the manual says that the AKG system is specified to 50m), and front-to-back in two large concert halls with line of sight. I had no problems with dropouts or signal loss when I used the mic and receiver either side of a solid wall, and at home I managed to get three rooms and part of a corridor away (approximately 20 metres) before I lost clear audio”.
