In 2012 the Darmstadt State Theatre replaced its existing wireless microphone system with a Sony DWX and Ambient Handheld Adaptors.
“The most important audio-feature of a wireless system is to be nothing than transparent, so you have just an equivalent alternative to the wired version of the same microphone. Thanks to the high quality of digital transmition, the Sound using the Sony Wireless is created only by the actor and the specific character of the microphone capsule we use. With the widely spread Shure Mount of the Sony DWM and the Ambient Recording handheld adaptors we are finally free to choose the best matching microphones for all different purposes, whether dynamic or condenser.” states Alfred Benz, Head of Sound Technology and Sound Engineering at the Darmstadt States Theatre.
A total of 20 HHA-S adaptors were supplied by Ambient Recording. With these and the 20 DWM-02D handheld transmitters the Darmstadt sound crew is capable to fulfill all artists needs on 4 stages in the house, conform to their specifications in the riders. Finally after a long period, where wireless manufacturers confined the users to their microphone spefications, the Ambient HHAs creates a totally new freedom of choice.
With the new HHA-SSH, the theatre allready tested and ordered, also Sennheiser and Neumann microphone heads made for the 2000 and 9000 series can now be used with their Sony system.
