trantec S5.5 T Theatre System

S5.5 Handheld Overview

25 years after pioneering the first readily available radio mics, Trantec's foresight and imagination has again taken wireless to a whole new level with their groundbreaking S5 Series. Based upon the award winning S6000, widely used in theatre and broadcast, the S5 Series promises a powerful set of features combined with an exceptional performance/cost ratio. For venues of any size, we suggest you check out the specifications of this remarkable system.

The S5.5, one of our latest multi-channel UHF products, is the big brother of the successful S5.3 system; it has up to 35MHz of bandwidth that will enable you to run up to 24 channels simultaneously at a price you will find hard to match.

HM-22-X2

The HM-22 is a high quality headband microphone, which not only claims to be one of the smallest but also one of the lightest headband microphones on the planet. It has been designed to be worn around the head and to be hidden discreetly under the hair.

The headband is engineered from a hard wearing nylon composite, which has been specially selected to withstand robust use and yet can be adjusted to fit any user's head and ear shape. The high quality microphone, optimized for speech and vocals, is mounted on a boom that can be bent into shape to allow for optimum sound quality. A small membrane is inserted into the capsule housing which protects the capsule from moisture, make-up and any other dirt and can be replaced cheaply and effectively to allow the microphone to perform consistently at its best.
