1/04/2018 5:18 PM Eastern

Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 professional wireless microphone series is a two-channel solution in one rack; it shares Sennheiser’s Long Range transmission mode and proprietary audio codec with the company’s Digital 9000 flagship. The Digital 6000 is designed to be a flexible two-channel wireless solution, allowing the use of existing accessory infrastructures to best fit the needs for theaters, rental companies, and churches. It is compatible with Digital 9000 in long-range mode and with the EK 6042 digital/analog camera receiver. The series is comprised of a two-channel receiver, the EM 6000, available with two different packages featuring a bodypack or a handheld transmitter, each with a 1U rackmount 19-inch charging unit. The receiver’s switching bandwidth of 244 MHz (470 to 714 MHz) is covered by three transmitter versions, and up to eight receiver units can be daisy-chained without the need for an additional antenna splitter. The multi-channel system will work with a single pair of antennas. System latency is 3 milliseconds. The EM 6000 receiver is fitted with a digital AES-3 output with wordclock in/out, transformer-balanced analog XLR-3 outputs and quarter-inch jack outputs. A Danteready version, the EM 6000 Dante, offers an additional Amphenol RJ-45 connector for integration into any Dante network. For data security, a feature that is particularly important for conference and corporate use, the Digital 6000 features switchable AES 256 encryption, with the transmitters also supporting the proprietary encryption of the Digital 9000 system. The Digital 6000’s transmitters use the same rechargeable packs as their Digital 9000 counterparts. As the SKM 6000 handheld transmitter features Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, it can be used with any microphone head from the evolution wireless series, the 2000 Series, and also with 9000 series heads.
