As the UK and Ireland distributor for all Harman Professional products, Sound Technology Ltd will premiere AKG’s flagship DMS 700 V2 digital wireless system at PLASA on stand no: E21.

Taking reliable professional audio transmission to the next level, AKG has launched the DMS 700 V2 digital wireless microphone system. With 512-bit encryption, ultra-low latency and the new DPT700 bodypack, DMS700 V2 offers artists and engineers absolute confidence in performance with a reliable, easy-to- use wireless component.

The DMS 700 V2 improves the link quality and increases the working range of the transmitters and receivers to allow for more freedom in arranging anything from lecture halls in universities to houses of worship and live performances on tour to broadcast operations.

Already compatible with the future-proof Channel 38, DMS700 v2 is now available pre-loaded with UK-specific frequency presets. In addition, DMS700 v2 is now also available with a hand-held transmitter featuring AKG’s premium D7 dynamic capsule, a very highly regarded capsule delivering open sound across all frequencies akin to a condenser mic but with the powerful resonance of a dynamic mic.

Users with the original DMS 700 wireless system can easily update their units through a software and hardware update. The free software update includes the 512- bit encryption, AES-EBU output and 0.5ms improved latency, improved link quality and range improvements and output gain menu with a bargraph and ability to deactivate autolock.

For approximately £299, the hardware upgrade ups the latency analogue output by 1 ms, increases the DPT 700 microphone input gain 0, +10 and +20dB and increases headphone output level by 24dB.

Wolfgang Fritz, product marketing manager – tour sound, AKG commented: “The new AKG DMS 700 V2 is the next step in AKG’s pursuit of the perfect, flawless audio signal transmission. It offers the audio professional ease of use, quick set-up and reliable operation in this demanding industry, even in the most challenging environments.”
