Monitor, shotgun mic focus for Sennheiser14 January 2012
Sennheiser UK will exhibit a variety of analogue and digital microphones, wireless systems, headphones and monitoring products from the Sennheiser and Neumann brands.
Particular highlights are said to include the Neumann KH120 studio monitors and the new MKH 8060 short gun and MKH 8070 long gun microphones.
Designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems, the KH 120 features a Mathematically Modelled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide, flexible acoustic controls, analogue class-AB amplifiers, a number of input formats, and an extensive range of mounting hardware. The KH 120 is suitable for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.
Also present for Neumann will be a selection of both analogue and digital microphones including the TLM 103D, KM 184D and the KMS 105D. These, along with the KH 120 monitor speakers, will be demonstrated in conjunction with a DiGiCo SD9 digital mixing console with AES 42 capability, to fully demonstrate the power and clarity of the digital mic revolution.
From the MKH range comes the compact MKH 8060 versatile short gun microphone equally at home on or off camera, and the long MKH 8070 rifle microphone, a specialist for more distant sound sources and highly suitable for sports reporting and nature recordings.
Other Sennheiser products on show will include the ME 66 short gun microphone and associated K6 powering module, MD 46 reporter’s microphone, MKH 416 short gun interference tube microphone, 2000/3000/5000 series wireless systems, and various headphones.
