Sennheiser wireless mics dance into stardom
Sennheiser SKM 5200 wireless handhelds with MD 5235 omni capsules as well as MD 42 omni reporter's microphones are in use for the seventh season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," which returned to air in September.
Less visible are the contestants' sub-miniature MKE Platinum lavalier microphones the SK 5212/SK 5012 body-pack transmitters, and the numerous mics on the orchestra. Behind the scenes, new Sennheiser EM 3732 dual-channel digital receivers and A 5000 CP antennas are also being used.
During the live premier of "Dancing with the Stars," eight channels of Sennheiser's new 300 IEM personal monitor transmitters were brought in for the Jonas Brothers, who made a guest appearance.
