Dutch singer Barbara Straathof, currently enjoying success after her exposure in TV show The Voice Of Holland, has chosen a Digital Hybrid Wireless microphone system for her rapidly building live schedule.
Her system was specified by Bram van der Mooren of Dutch audio specialist Heuff and consists of a Lectrosonics R400A UHF Digital Diversity rack-mount receiver with a HH/E01Digital Hybrid Wireless handheld transmitter and HHC cardioid condenser capsule.
“For my live work, I decided to do a test with three different microphones,” said Straathof. “I couldn't believe the difference [with the Digital Hybrid Wireless]. It was crazy, every note I sang, a clear copy of that note came back to me. Pure, clear, warm and so vivid. I could not believe that the Lectrosonics HH was so different from the other systems. So I've ordered a new mic with receiver, and the guys from Heuff have built me a super cool flight-case for the receiver and the in-ear transmitter. I couldn't be happier.”
Lectrosonics, currently showing its new L Series and DSW products on its IBC ehibition stand in Hall 8, said its Digital Hybrid Wireless combines digital audio with an analogue FM radio link to provide high audio quality and noise-free RF performance. It eliminates compandor artefacts and produces an audio frequency response flat to 20 kHz.
