Trantec, a TOA Group company and provider of "high quality" UHF wireless microphones, 2.4GHz digital, and in-ear monitors, has announced an upgraded and distinctive new look to its popular S5 Series of radio microphones.
Designed in the UK, the S5 Series comprises the S5.5 and its variants. The S5.5 is a multi-channel UHF system that can operate up to 24 channels simultaneously and be used with a wide range of microphones or instrument cables.
The S5.5’s upgraded features include an all black fascia design with distinctive colour backlit indicators, a stronger belt clip and an RF link out for cascading receivers.
Its handheld transmitter also now comes with a removable dynamic or condenser capsule, as well as the ability to use third party capsules. The in-built monitoring software has also been upgraded, with a RF Walk Test along with compatibility with Windows 7, 8 and 10. Furthermore, the popular and unique S5.5 Rack 'n' Ready systems can now be supplied in smaller rack sizes, as there is no requirement for antenna distribution units up to an eight way configuration, making it highly cost effective.
According to the firm, the upgraded model – available now – is being targeted at professional musicians, theatre production companies, schools, places of worship, film studios and broadcasters working in a diverse range of environments of any size and layout.
Malcolm Crummey, sales manager UK and Ireland at Trantec, commented, ‘After the successful redevelopment of the S4 Series in 2016, we started looking at how to develop and improve our best-selling S5 Series. As with the S4 Series, we listened to what our many loyal and long-time users of the S5 Series wanted, and it’s great to finally bring to market this latest model which we know will be a great success’. Already firmly established as the leading system of its kind, the latest upgrade to the S5 Series offers a powerful set of features with an unrivalled performance/cost ratio. All products are in stock and available to order now.’
