ANAHEIM, California – The latest addition to the successful line of HARMAN’s AKG WMS 40 MINI series now features a dual channel receiver. The AKG WMS 40 MINI 2 Dual wireless system, launched at Winter NAMM, offers high-definition audio performance, with efficient body pack and cardioid mic transmitters, ensuring advanced, reliable and quality sound for performances.
The WMS 40 MINI 2 Dual Package is available in three sets – the Vocal, Instrumental and Mix sets. The Vocal set features two HT 40 MINI dynamic cardioid microphones and the SR 40 MINI DUAL receiver. AKG’s Instrumental set includes two PT 40 MINI body packs - the smallest transmitters in its class that lasts up to 30 hours on one AA battery –the SR 40 MINI 2 and two guitar cables, while the Mix set offers one HT 40 MINI, a PT 40 MINI and the SR 40 MINI 2.
With swivelling antennae, easy-to-read LED meterings, volume control and the on-off switch on the front of the receiver, connecting and calibrating the plug-and-play system ensures engineers and musicians spend more time playing than worrying about the wireless technology itself.
