When the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston, Texas elected to update its wireless microphone system, the staff turned to AKG's frequency-agile DMS 700 after comparing it in a side-by-side test with competitors.
In updating the theater's wireless audio system, Rob Slaughter of Hairel Enterprises was called on to carry out the installation, which consists of twenty-four channels each having both belt-pack and hand-held transmitters. Greg Stevens of AudioVend assisted Hairel Enterprises in commissioning the new system.
“We wanted the DMS 700 because it, combined with other systems upgrades, gives us an all digital signal path for our wireless system, which couldn't quite be matched by other manufacturers” said Cliff Presswood, one of the staff audio engineers at the Miller Outdoor Theater. “In addition to the clear, articulate sound and wide tuning range, the DMS 700 gives us the flexibility to broadcast a very large number of channels simultaneously, and really limits any distortion or high noise levels.”
“The DMS 700 is designed to offer a level of flexibility that is unmatched by analogue systems or other digital wireless systems,” commented Joseph Wagoner, AKG's product manager for tour and installed sound. “It's ideal for any application where audio quality, channel quality and ease-of-use are important, which is what makes it the perfect selection for the Miller Outdoor Theater.”
