The Sony DWX-Series steps up to a new stage

Ideal for a range of applications including live concert, theatre, opera, broadcast studio, news gathering

Sony returned to ProLight + Sound 2012 in Frankfurt with the launch of the updated DWX-Series digital wireless microphone system. Sony’s landmark technology places it at the heart of the audio production market, driving forward the progression into digital sound.

The updated DWX-Series digital wireless microphone system includes
• DWM-02, CU-C31, CU-F31, CU-F32 and industry major 3rd party microphone capsules The extensive range of microphone capsules allows operators to capture sound depending on their requirements. This allows the DWX to function in differing environments, capable of recording both intimate and bold, clear vocal expression in loud environments, and interview and speech gathering from variable distances.

• DWR-R02D rackmount receiver The DWR-R02D supports electric guitar and bass amplifier connections by TS Phone output with ATT control function. The 100V to 240V AC and 12V DC power enables users to operate in a global power environment.

• DWR-S02D portable receiver A wide bandwidth up to 72Mhz, three times the level available with the previous model gives users a higher probability to find unoccupied frequencies in congested metropolitan areas.

• ECM-FT5 microphone The ECM-FT5 flat type microphone comes with a unique metal water resistant design.


Ideal for a range of applications including live concert, theatre, opera, broadcast studio, news gathering, field production, and sound recording, the DWX-Series offers the truly digital wireless microphone platform. It combines advanced digital technologies, analog microphone expertise, wireless audio transmission technologies, and an enviable reputation for stability. Furthermore, with European legislation opening up and reallocating frequencies and bandwidths, the DWX-Series provides everything professionals need for the switchover from analogue to digital.

The digital wireless microphone system transmits and receives high-quality 24-bit/48-kHz digital audio in a specific frequency bandwidth. Using Sony’s original WiDIF-HP codec, the system delivers a wide dynamic range of more than 106 dB, a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 22 kHz, and an excellent transient response.


The DWX-Series enables highly stable wireless transmission that is extremely tolerant to unwanted interference. In addition, the system transmits and receives digitally modulated and encrypted data to minimise the risk of interception, providing highly secure transmission and reception.

Markus Warlich, Product Specialist Professional Audio, Sony Professional, said: “Sony technology is at the forefront of the switchover from analogue to digital transmission. Combining Sony’s digital wireless transmission technology with a wide choice of Sony and 3rd party capsules, the DWX-Series will help to bring brand new sound experiences to audiences across the world. And where better to unveil this technology than at Prolight and Sound 2012. We believe that this is a landmark development in digital audio technology.”
