Russ Gentner's new company Listen Technologies has developed a line of wireless audio products using stationary and portable transmitters and receivers. Typical range is 100 to 3,000 feet. Broadcasters can use them for IFB, in-ear monitoring and remote cueing. The products also are suitable for tour groups and language interpretation. A typical system with transmitter and receiver plus options runs in the $1,000 range. The LT-800 Stationary Transmitter will broadcast up to 3,000 feet on 216 MHz (specify 72 or 216 MHz bands). Antenna options depend on application; a rack kit is available. The LT-700 Portable Transmitter has a range of 100 to 300 feet. It accepts a direct microphone and line-level inputs.
Listen has three portable receivers, the LR-300, -400, -500, and two new sound amplification receivers, the LR-600 and -100. The LR-600 is a self-powered speaker with receiver. The company has introduced the LR-100 Stationary Receiver/Power Amp, a half-rack receiver with 44-watt power amp. Used with the LT-800 Stationary Transmitter, it can provide a high-quality audio link. Audio quality is 50 Hz to 15 kHz, 80 dB S/N, <2 percent distortion. Also new is SQ technology, a noise-reduction process that takes S/N down from 60 to 80 dB, making the products suitable for lower-noise applications. Info: www.listentech.com.
