The black 2000 Series Dual Handheld and Dual Bodypack Transmitter Wireless Microphone System from Sennheiser is a professional wireless microphone package designed to deliver high-quality, reliable wireless performance for concerts, lectures, meetings, and a wide variety of other pro audio applications. This system includes the EM 2050 twin wireless receiver, two black SKM 2000-XP handheld microphone transmitters with black Neumann KK 204 condenser capsules, and two SK 2000-XP bodypack transmitters.
The 2000 Series wireless system features 20 intermodulation-free frequency banks with up to 64 preset channels per bank. In addition, there are 6 user banks that allow you to tune and store up to 64 channels. Frequency channel settings are tuned in 25 kHz steps, and there are up to 3,000 possible frequencies in up to 75 MHz of bandwidth in a given band (number of presets, number of possible frequencies and bandwidth vary per frequency band).
To help you get set up as quickly as possible, there is an auto-scan feature that finds available frequencies for you, plus you can configure the transmitter via infrared directly from the receiver. To prevent audible RF interference due to a weak signal from the transmitter, the system utilizes a pilot tone-driven squelch feature that kicks in once the signal strength dips below a certain threshold.
The package includes two SKM 2000-XP handheld microphone transmitters which each run on two regular AA batteries, or the optional BA 2015 rechargeable battery pack. For convenience, they have external charging contacts that allow for recharging without taking the battery packs out of the transmitters when used with the optional L2015G2 charging station. In this particular 2000 Series system, the transmitters come with the Neumann KK 204 cardioid condenser capsules, which have been developed specifically for the SKM 2000 system. In designing the KK 204, particular attention was given to ensuring that the capsule maintains low levels of self noise and handling noise. Intended for stage use, the cardioid polar pattern rejects sound from the sides and directly behind the microphone. This helps to promote isolation from floor monitors and crowd noise. The capsules also feature integrated foam for pop protection and for keeping moisture from contaminating the elements.
The set also includes two SK 2000-XP transmitters. The SK 2000-XP is a lightweight bodypack transmitter, that when paired with a headset or lavalier microphone that terminates with the Sennheiser 3-pin connector, provides a hands-free wireless option. The SK 2000-XP can also be paired with a compatible instrument cable for wireless electric guitar and bass, or with an instrument mic for wireless miking of acoustic guitar, upright bass and more. Like the SKM 2000-XP handheld transmitter, the SK 2000-XP can operate either on two AA batteries, or on the optional BA 2015 rechargeable battery pack. It also has external contacts for charging on the L2015G2 charging station without removing the battery pack.
The EM 2050 is a twin wireless receiver that is enclosed in a 19" rackmountable case that is made from all-metal. It features two balanced 1/4" outputs, two balanced XLR outputs, and two 1/4" headphone outputs. For convenience and efficient use of space, the power supply is integrated within the unit. Employing true diversity technology for consistent reception, the receiver uses 2 rod antennas. Additionally, the EM 2050 has an integrated antenna splitter that allows up to 8 receiver units to share one set of antennas. This feature can come in handy in multi-channel system configurations in which you may wish to rackmount several receivers on top of one another.
In addition, Sennheiser Control Cockpit Software (download) offers easy handling, control, and maintenance for the Digital Wireless System. It provides a global overview of all network-enabled devices, shows all status information, and makes setting adjustments very easy.
