Very good digital funkmicrophone

16.06.2016
Through the digital dividend, the old systems (D-Band) have become useless in our church community. They still work, but the general allocation has been canceled since the 31.12.2015.
In the E-band we already have systems and the 2.4 GHz band will be completely overloaded in the coming years.
Since the hand-held microphone is primarily used for speech, I decided to use the Speechline DW set, which works in the license-free 1.9 GHz band (DECT).
According to the Federal Network Agency, the General DECT Band is valid until December 31, 2025.

Packaging and design:

The microphone set looks very classy, ??it is delivered in a robust transport case, which also provides space for a pocket transmitter + 1 headset.
The design is based on the new EW D1 systems (2.4 GHz), while the gray elements of the D1 series have been replaced by silver in the Speechline series.

Receiver:

The SL receiver has an XLR output on the back, the RJ45 connector for the network and, somewhat unusual, an RCA output (red-white).
With the rotary knob (jog dial) on the front, all settings in the menu can be changed quickly, the operation works very well.
The pair button connects the transmitter and the receiver in seconds, and the set is already paired.
You can select different profiles for male or female voices or simply configure the built-in 7-band equalizer.
The OLED display on the receiver is very easy to read, the strength of the radio signal is displayed in 6 steps and the battery indicator is shown in 7 steps.

To Handsender:

With the hand transmitter, the low weight immediately (compared to a EW 100 G2 hand transmitter).
The surface is somewhat rough, but the transmitter is very good in the hand and the grip sounds are barely perceptible.
The on-off switch on the hand transmitter is extremely small, but sensibly placed.
In addition, there is finally a mute switch at the thumb position, which is clean and firmly locked and is not audible.
The main drawback of the hand-held transmitter is the display.
It is not illuminated and the information can be read extremely badly.
The included battery B10 can be recharged by USB, if the expensive charging station CHG 2 for 179¤ (2 charging shafts!) Has not bought.
The recharge time is very high, 10 - 15 hours are quite realistic according to previous experience.

Practice:

In the Praxistest I especially liked the very good language comprehension and the uncomplicated service.
The 865 condensate capsule sounds great, even with inexperienced speakers, which keep the microphone a bit further from the mouth.
The transmission power is adjusted automatically and depends on the distance.
The range I have tested up to 40m and thereby the walk-test activated -> everything OK.
I noticed a very quiet noise from the loudspeakers when the radio system is switched on. In normal operation, eg during interviews, it is not to be heard.
This relatively high noise level I have never experienced in the old analogue Sennheiser radio tracks.

Software:

For the SL DW series there is a special software, with which all receivers in the network can be monitored and controlled (Control Cockpit).
The software is currently in beta status (ver 0.99) and is installed as a server application (for me on a Win7 system).
Once the service runs in the background, you can access the Control Cockpit software via the browser. This already works very well in beta status.
All relevant information of the radio system can be read and also changed, eg battery run time, audio profile or low cut.
For monitoring and controlling several devices a practical thing.

Conclusion:

The wire lock system is convincing with optimum speech intelligibility and very good processing quality.
There are prints for the display on the hand transmitter, the high price and the noise level.
Actually 4.5 stars.
