Sound Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that AKG’s WMS 450 wireless range is now available in the UK on frequencies covering Channel 38.

More flexible than a simple plug-and-play system yet easy to set up and operate, WMS 450 allows cost-efficient, high-performance scalable multi-channel solutions.

Transmitter options include the HT 450 handheld, with a choice of AKG’s D 5 dynamic or C 5 condenser capsules or the PT 450 pocket transmitter, with C 555 L headworn microphone, C 407 L lavalier microphone, or MKG L instrument cable.

Both transmitters have an LCD display which indicates all important system data at a glance, including the selected frequency, available battery time, low battery warning and the current transmission mode. Up to 8 hours operation is possible from a single AA battery. Charging contact allow the transmitters to be used with the optional CU 400 charging unit.

The true-diversity SR 450 transmitter features Auto Setup mode, where the receiver will scan the available bands, find an interference-free channel, and transmit the related frequency data to the assigned transmitter via infrared. This function significantly reduces the time it takes to set up a multichannel system. A Rehearsal function is provided for identifying RF dead-spots.

The back-lit display clearly indicates all important system parameters, warning the user of critical conditions from a distance including audio clipping, RF and battery status.

WMS 450 is compatible with AKG’s range of antennas, antenna splitters and power supplies.

Channel 38 (606-614 MHz) is the dedicated replacement for channel 69 (854-862 MHz) and, along with frequencies in channels 39 and 40, is currently available on a shared licence basis for PMSE (programme-making and special events) use across the UK. Channel 69 will not be available for PMSE use after 2012.

The AKG WMS 450 is available now priced from £450 RRP ex VAT.
