AKG’s New Perception Wireless Couples Legendary High-Performance With Advanced Usability
The Perception Wireless is designed to accommodate musicians and entry-level audio technicians, although it has the capabilities to handle even the most difficult audio setups with up to 8 channels per band. The Perception Wireless Series consists of a Vocal Set, with the handheld transmitter HT 45 featuring a dynamic cardioid capsule; the Instrumental Set, which comes with the pocket transmitter PT 45 plus instrument cable; the Sports Set with the pocket transmitter as well as a C 544 head-worn microphone; and a presenter set, complete with the PT 45 and a CK 99 L lavaliere microphone. All sets include the stationary receiver SR 45, a single AA battery and a switched mode power supply with EU/UK/US adapters.
The pocket transmitter PT 45 – which is the smallest in its class – runs on a single AA battery, and is compatible with all AKG MicroMics. The HT 45 Handheld Transmitter gives users the ability to adjust the microphone level from high gain to low gain and comes with a capsule from the Perception Live Series protected by a rugged wire mesh cap. The SR 45 Stationary Receiver delivers a diversity system, professional XLR and Jack outputs and the SMPS solution.
“Increasing ease of use with perfect audio transmission was the target for this new wireless microphone system,” said Thomas Umbauer, AKG’s Product Manager for PPA. “Perception Wireless is tailored to your needs, from single-channel applications and individual configurations to multichannel systems. The Vocal, Instrumental, Presenter and Sports sets are the ideal plug-and-play wireless solutions for musicians and small installed sound venues.”
New to the Perception Wireless family is the sports headset C 544. The latest microphone headset uses a capsule and acoustics from the C 555 and comes complete with a professional mini XLR connector and a rugged one-size-fits-all solution. AKG also included a windscreen and four droprings to make the set one of the most valuable wireless hands-free systems available.AKG Perception Wireless Set
