The AP42 Performance Series Dual-Channel Handheld Wireless System from Audix includes the R42 2-channel diversity receiver and two H60/VX5 handheld transmitters. The R42 receiver operates on a frequency range of 554 to 586 MHz and offers one-touch auto scan searches for clear channel. The unit features an internal antenna combiner for dual antenna operation. It comes in a 19" rackmount chassis and includes BNC cables for front mounting antennas. Thanks to the one-touch sync function, this receiver easily links to the H60 handheld transmitters via infrared beam.
Each handheld transmitter comes with the VX5 condenser supercardioid microphone capsule. These transmitters feature a slim-line body design and durable metal housing and are compact, well-balanced, and comfortable to hold. They come with a soft mute switch which also serves as an on/off switch when needed. The transmitter units also feature a high-contrast LCD display with group, channel, and battery indicator.
Each VX5 is a multi-purpose, professional vocal condenser microphone designed for live stage, studio, and broadcast applications. With an ability to duplicate studio quality sound on stage, these microphones have a smooth and detailed frequency response, resistance to feedback and can handle high SPLs of more than 140 dB without distortion.
Audix R42 Kit-B Performance Series Dual-Channel UHF Diversity Receiver (B: 554 to 586 MHz)
The Audix R42 Kit-B is a Performance Series dual-channel UHF diversity receiver designed to deliver enhanced range and easy configuration for musicians, vocalists, presenters, and public speakers in houses of worship, concert venues, conferences, and live stage applications.
