Reference Digital Wireless Stationary Receiver


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

The DSR800 reference two-channel digital wireless receiver provides an ultra-wide bandwidth of up to 150MHz for reliable operation with the flexibility to meet the needs of a wide range of applications. It is designed to work with the versatile DHT800 handheld transmitter, which offers interchangeable microphone capsules, and the DPT800 body-pack transmitter, for line- and microphone signals. 

For enhanced flexibility, the DSR800 provides two digital audio outputs – for DANTE and AES EBU. The receiver finds interference-free channels and synchronizes the corresponding setup data to the transmitter via infrared signal. The environment scan converts the DSR800 into a spectrum analyzer, scanning the receiver’s frequency band for active radio frequencies and displaying the spectrum.
