Features

Superb digital sound quality
High-quality 24-bit linear PCM digital transmission offers pristine audio and a wide frequency range of 10 Hz to 22 kHz. Audio performance degradation that’s typical of conventional analogue wireless systems is avoided, as these packages are designed without the need for a compander.
Two RF modes for reliable transmission
The DWZ Series provides two selectable RF modes. Simply choose the one that makes best use of your actual 2.4 GHz RF environment:

Wide Band Hopping mode

This mode reduces interference to other wireless equipment used in the same environment such as WiFi. There’s no need for advanced technical knowledge about radio frequency. Wide Band Hopping mode also supports additional error correction for more secure transmission*1.

Narrow Band Hopping mode

This mode helps to avoid interference from other devices – for example, 2.4 GHz wireless remote controllers that are commonly used for lighting control. This enables frequencies to be coordinated when using multiple wireless systems simultaneously*2.

*1 Audio delay: Approx. 6 ms

*2 Audio delay: Approx. 3 ms
Stable transmission
Interruptions in reception (signal dropout) can be a problem with wireless microphone transmission systems. With the DWZ Series, however, dropouts are reduced to a minimum. Utilizing a space diversity reception system, stable reception is achieved by using dual-antenna inputs / reception circuits. These receive signals over two different paths and automatically select the stronger RF signal for output.
Large colour LCD
The ZRX-HR50 half-rack size receiver includes a large colour LCD display to provide detailed visual status of your selected channel, signal, and five-band digital equalizer, along with audio level, and transmitter battery life.
Fast and easy setup
With its Clear Channel Scan and Best Channel Selection features, the half-rack ZRX-HR50 detects unoccupied channels and selects the most appropriate channel automatically, for fast and easy system setup.
Wired / wireless seamless operation
The ZRX-HR50 is equipped with a Cable Tone Generator feature to simulate a wired tone when using wireless. There’s no need to adjust the equalizer setting on your amplifier when switching between wired and wireless. Simply set the Cable Tone Generator menu on the ZRX-HR50 display to match the desired wired tone.
Five-band equaliser
With the five-band digital equalizer in the half- rack ZRX-HR50 receiver, you’ll find it’s easy to adjust the sound character of your handheld microphone as desired.
