Opus 900 to be new flagship wireless system by beyerdynamic

SDM969 beltpack TS 900 MAt Plasa 2006 (stand H34) and IBC 2006 (8.477) beyerdynamic will debut its new flagship system in the wireless range, the Opus 900. Designed to meet the rigorous operating criteria of multi-channel systems for professional applications, the new Opus 900 system benefits from beyerdynamic's experience with the Opus 500 Mk II and 800 systems. Two new microphones are available, with metal housing or durable plastic housing with charging contacts on the base. Both models feature colour-LCD display, Automatic Frequency Scan and Setting function. SPL capacity is 116-146 dB. Both feature adjustable input sensitivity, internal 4-level pad: 0, -10, -20 and -30 dB and silent On/Off switch.
The Opus 900 system offers a range of interchangeable capsules for a broad range of applications including theatre, broadcast, large installations or live concerts. The DM 960 S and B capsules are both fitted with the high performance TG-X 60 dynamic hypercardioid capsule, while the DM 969 S is fitted with the Opus 69 dynamic supercardioid capsule. The EM 981 S has an electret condenser capsule and the CM 930 B features beyerdynamic’s full range ‘true condenser’ capsule.
Three new UHF receivers, housed in rugged metal boxes, feature true dual diversity. The NE 900 S is a single channel receiver in a 9.5” housing (1U), while the dual channel NE 900 D and the NE 900 Q (quad) are housed in a standard 19” 1U rackmount. An engineer-friendly “jog wheel” for fast access and reconfiguration of the system has also been added.
The receivers offer 99 pre-programmed frequencies, ranging from 668-692 MHz, 790-814 MHz, 841-865 MHz, with the possibility to program a free frequency within 24 MHz bandwidth in 25 KHz steps. All models feature monitoring headphone output with volume control and balanced XLR per channel, Remote-In and-Out port and PC control ability. The dual and quad receivers also feature an integrated antenna splitter.
The Opus 900 Wireless System offers a choice of two beltpack transmitters. The TS 900 M features a metal housing and the TS 900 C has a tough plastic enclosure with recharge connectors. Both come with ACT infrared interface for frequency setting, LCD for selected channel, group and battery status (5-stage), gain control, silent on/off switch and 4- pin mini-XLR input connector.
The Opus 900 Wireless System will be available from November 2006.
