Reference Digital Wireless Handheld Transmitter


for theater, conference, live-production and tour-sound applications

The DHT800 reference digital wireless handheld transmitter, for use with the DMS800 digital wireless microphone system, features a robust and slim metal body for durability and easy handling. It offers a new level of flexibility with interchangeable microphone heads – users can choose from among the AKG D5 WL1, D7 WL1 or the C5 WL1. 

The DHT800 provides an ultra-wide bandwidth of 150MHz and a selectable radio output power of 10-50mW (depending on frequency band). A built-in helix antenna provides reliable wireless audio transmission, while state-of-the-art 512-bit encryption technology secures the audio signal against tapping. For additional flexibility, the mute switch can be set to operate as the power switch.
