Future Frequency regulations!

Many frequencies used today in our current UHF Wireless Systems were given for the use of mobile services (LTE). The operation of conventional UHF wireless systems in these frequency ranges is not, or only partly allowed. This change is referred to in the industry as digital dividend. In Germany for example the digital change-over will be on the 31.12.2015

Fortunately, most systems are currently available in the UHF frequency ranges and multiple systems with our Thomann frequency tool, so you can see in which frequencies the selected products are allowed and whether they may continue to be used freely without extra costs or registration.

Incidentally, modern wireless systems that transmit over the wireless frequencies of WIFI networks are not affected by the digital dividend. Please refer to the notes in our product descriptions.

Great entry level professional unit

23.06.2015
I have Used these Sennheiser units for a few years now and find them very good to use. They are an entry level professional unit offering great sound quality and reliability but with a limited amount of features. If you are thinking of using several units together I would suggest going for the 300 series as there are lots more networking features which makes life a lot easier when setting them up at gigs.

Build Quality

The receiver unit is housed in a good solid metal case with a small simple LCD display and option buttons.

The transmitter is the classic Sennheiser pack. Although its made of plastic I have never had one break on me yet. The buttons are reliable and the battery door is strong and well made. It can be a little tricky to pull the batteries out sometimes (especially in a rush) but you get used to it.

Handling

The receiver unit is simple to set up but I do advise reading the instructions especially if you don't know about RF. If you don't understand what you are doing you can have some pretty disastrous problems. Read The Manual ! The unit is powered by a separate moulded transformer. This is ok but not ideal.

The transmitter pack is again pretty simple to use but only if you have a working understanding of RF. There are a lot of options in the menu. There are simpler products out there if you don't want to get involved with scanning frequencies and squelch ! The battery life is excellent and you can get several hours of use from one set of quality batteries.

Once correctly set up these units are great. They have the same parts as the more expensive 300 series just a few less features. The sound quality is great and the transmission range is easily good enough for small to medium size venues.

Features

The software on these units offers loads of options including frequency scanning, frequency banks, squelch and attenuation. If however you want to use several units together I would suggest getting the 300 series receivers. With the 300 series you can network the units together and use in conjunction with the Sennheiser scanning software which is great for working with large amounts of frequencies.

Am absolutely satisfied, I have to compare with a cable (with the boss ls-2) and can only say absolutely no sound losses ..., perhaps I buy myself somewhere still a second device to switch between two guitars ...
