(click thumbnail)Sennheiser says its new EM 3732 twin receiver has a nose for free frequencies.
The unit offers automatic scanning functionality within a frequency bank, as well as a choice of five frequency ranges, transmitter synchronization via infrared interface, and flexible analog and digital connection options.
The EM 3732 receiver features six user-selectable fixed frequency banks, and one user bank with up to 60 channels that can be programmed in increments of 5 kHz. An integrated antenna splitter allows up to eight EM 3732 twin receivers to be daisy-chained.
The EM 3732 is suitable for large multi-channel applications thanks to its wide switching bandwidth and tunable channels and infrared interface, which programs SKM 5200, SK 5212 and SKP 3000 transmitters with the receiver data via a hot key.
The company says the receiver’s front-panel LED display offers high contrast. The interface guides users through operating menus, featuring icons that are navigated using a jog dial. Frequently used menu items can be accessed directly via hot key shortcuts. Both receivers can be monitored by way of headphones, individually or simultaneously.
The receiver system can be remote-controlled and monitored using the provided Wireless Systems Manager software. Just connect the PC to the Ethernet socket of the EM 3732.
Output level can be set in increments of 1dB, and is available at a transformer-balanced XLR-3 analog output as well as an AES3/EBU audio output for direct connection with digital mixing consoles. Digital synchronization of the 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz/24 bit sample rate can be generated internally or accepted from the digital audio mixer via a BNC connector. a DSP-based HiDyn plus expander rather than analog circuitry also helps to maintain audio quality.
