LD Systems unveils U500 wireless radio mic series

LD Systems has announced the immediate availability of its new U500 Series radio microphones with wireless capabilities.

The wireless systems, with high dynamic transmission quality, are available in the frequency ranges 823 – 832 MHz, 863 – 865 MHz, 655 – 679 MHz and 584 – 608 MHz.

With automatic channel search, one-touch infrared synchronisation and intuitive user control on easily readable OLED displays, the UHF wireless systems in the U500 series are quickly ready for use. Along with dynamic and condenser microphones, there are also U500 wireless systems with headsets, lavalier and clip-on microphones and a version for electric guitars and bass. Exchange capsules with hypercardioid features are available for the handheld transmitters’ replaceable heads.

The bodypacks and wireless microphones boast a reliable battery level display and can be given names to allow differentiation when several systems are being used at the same time. A total of 96 channels are available, spread over eight groups with 12 channels each. Up to six systems can be operated at the same time.

The outputs on the single and double receivers can be switched from line level to instrument level. Adjustable transmission strength of up to 30 mW, the effective noise reduction with a pilot tone and the frequency range of 60 Hz to 16 Hz ensure professional transmission quality with high dynamics and very clear speech quality, according to the company. Depending on battery type, the handheld transmitters and the bodypack have a battery life of up to 13 hours.

The German Design Council, the German foundation supporting brands and design, has just nominated the U500 Series for the German Design Award 2017.

Viktor Wiesner, Product Manager Pro Audio, said, “With the new LD Systems U500 Series, we are offering a flexible system that meets the needs of various target groups, sounds great, is easy to operate and can be used free of charge."
