The West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds,UK has recently upgraded its wireless mike systems with the purchase of a Sennheiser 3000 Series from UK-based Pro Audio Systems.

The system is comprised of 12 Sennheiser 3000 Series radio mike systems consisting of six 3532-U dual receivers, 12 SK3063 belt-pack transmitters, and two SKM3072 handheld mikes. This was augmented with an ASA3000 splitter and active antennae. Also included in the purchase were a number of MKE-2s for stock. The complete system was custom racked and wired by Pro Audio Systems and supplied with S-MCD3000HP monitoring software, which is being run via the multi-core.

"We have a large number of Sennheiser wireless systems in rental stock; we are fully aware of their capabilities, using them in high-profile multi-channel events on a regular basis," says Dave Simpson of Pro Audio Systems. "In the event of the Playhouse requiring additional systems for larger shows, we are able to augment them with our own 3000 Series systems and also link in with the PC monitoring software. The frequency plan was also designed with our rental equipment in mind, with the option of operating in excess of 48 channels together."
