Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that its Digital 9000 wireless microphone system and HDVD 800 headphone amplifier were both recognised with Outstanding Technical Achievement awards by the TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Foundation. Sennheiser USA president Greg Beebe accepted the awards during a reception held at the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim on 24 January.
Sennheiser’s Digital 9000 wireless microphone system is among the most advanced professional wireless systems in the world and supports professionals across broadcast studios, theatres, and live performances. The HDVD 800 headphone amp/DAC meanwhile allows for optimal performance when paired with any Sennheiser audiophile headphones.
“On behalf of the entire Sennheiser team, I want to express my gratitude to the TEC Foundation for recognising the Digital 9000 system and the HDVD 800 with Outstanding Achievement awards,” said Greg Beebe. “At Sennheiser, we are committed to the Pursuit of Perfect Sound – and this commitment is reflected in products that dramatically improve our customers’ ability to deliver audio quality that is second to none. The Digital 9000 and HDVD 800 are two such products.”
Since the TEC Foundation was established in 1990, Sennheiser and its subsidiary Georg Neumann, Berlin have been presented with a cumulative total of 20 Outstanding Technical Achievement awards as well as having five products represented in the TECnology Hall of Fame, including the venerable MD 421 microphone.
The Sennheiser Digital 9000 wireless system
The Digital 9000 wireless microphone system offers completely uncompressed and artifact-free digital audio, combining sonic purity and outstanding dynamics. It is the only digital wireless system that is able to transmit uncompressed audio in the UHF range, allowing for full HD sound. The system’s superior linearity eliminates the risk of intermodulation, allowing a very narrow set-up of the respective radio frequencies within the available frequency range.
Sennheiser HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC
The HDVD 800 headphone amp/DAC is a solid-state amplifier that generates the ultimate acoustic performance when paired with any of Sennheiser’s audiophile headphones. It highlights crisp, balanced and distortion-free sound through a high-quality Burr-Brown digital/analogue converter (DAC). The amplifier is outfitted with both an unbalanced and balanced inputs. Digital sources can be connected via an XLR (AES/EBU) input, optical and coaxial (S/PDIF) inputs or USB with signal rates of 24 bit at 192 kHz.
