Sennheiser now brings wireless functionality to any conventionally
wired microphone with the SKP 30 miniature plug-on transmitter. By
simply plugging the diminutive SKP 30 into the output jack of any
passive or phantom-powered microphone and complimenting it with an
appropriate RF receiver, audio professionals can enjoy wireless
performance from their favorite "wired" microphones.
Further, by employing flexible PLL technology and the Sennheiser
patented HiDyn plus noise reduction system, the SKP 30 delivers
studio quality fidelity.
appreciate the SKP 30's sturdy die-cast construction, robust
transmission characteristics and the flexibility having sixteen
pre-programmed, PLL-controlled frequencies that are scientifically
chosen from 1280 user accessible frequencies within its operating
range. Given this flexibility coupled with HiDyn plus noise reduction
technology ensures compatibility with Sennheiser's acclaimed 3000 and
5000 Series receivers. Switchable 48V phantom power accommodates
condenser microphones and a balanced input maintains an optimal signal-to-noise
ratio of 114dB. Even the SKP 30's sensitivity falls under the
purview of the operator, allowing four 10dB increments and a 20dB
pad. A battery status display on the transmitter allows for
intelligent power management and a "low batt" warning sent
to the receiver ensures that power failure won't leave users in a
lurch. Finally, a lock function prevents unintended parameter changes.
"The SKP 30
represents the ideal RF transmitter for ENG applications as well as
for broadcast, film, and video sound recording professionals,"
noted Rick Belt, product manager, RF wireless. "It's robust,
flexible, easy to use, and reliable so that users won't have to worry
about its stability in the field. It offers phenomenal sound quality
with both dynamic and condenser microphones, allaying any fears that
'going wireless' will diminish audio quality. In sum, the SKP 30
delivers transparent RF operation coupled with 'wired' fidelity."
