ORLANDO, Florida – Taking the next level in reliable professional audio transmission, HARMAN has launched AKG's DMS700 V2 digital wireless microphone system. With a 512 Bit encryption, low 3.5 latency and the new DPT700 bodypack, DMS700 V2 offers artists and engineers absolute confidence in performance with a reliable, easy-to-use wireless component.
