Product Description

The AKG WMS45 Perception Wireless Instrument system is ideal for an exceptionally wide range of applications, comprising an SR 45 receiver and PT 45 pocket transmitter, the smallest and lightest transmitter in its class. It can be used with many AKG miniature microphones (optional), and the battery compartment cover doubles as a convenient tool for setting input gain for the application at hand.

The system comes complete with a universal power supply with US/UK/EU adapter, MKG L cable with 1/4 inch jack plug and mini XLR connector, and one AA size dry battery.

Features

- 30 MHz selection bandwidth (depending on local frequency plans)
- 8 hours of operation with a single AA size battery
- Compatible with all AKG MicroMics
- Low battery indicator
- Smallest and lightest bodypack transmitter in its class
- Complete with MKG L cable for direct connection to electric guitar or bass

The Perception wireless system comes complete with bandwidths up to 30 MHz and excessively low-current transmitters, which are unique in its class, cementing Perception Wireless as one of the most comprehensive systems in its price range.

The Perception Wireless is designed to accommodate musicians and entry-level audio technicians, although it has the capabilities to handle even the most difficult audio setups with up to 8 channels per band.

The pocket transmitter PT45 - which is the smallest in its class - runs on a single AA battery, and is compatible with all AKG MicroMics. The SR45 Stationary Receiver delivers a diversity system, professional XLR and 1/4 inch jack outputs and the SMPS solution.

"Increasing ease of use with perfect audio transmission was the target for the Perception Wireless systems," said Thomas Umbauer, AKG's Product Manager for PPA. "Perception Wireless is tailored to your needs, from single-channel applications and individual configurations to multichannel systems. The Vocal, Instrumental, Presenter and Sports sets are the ideal plug-and-play wireless solutions for musicians and small installed sound venues."

Customer Reviews
1.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AKG WMS45 Wireless Instrument System a big let down."
Sound: The sound quality from this unit was terrible, no where near what a cord produced. Feature: This unit is made from plastic and for the price I expected it to work much better. I used my Jackson King V with crate half stack and was very disappointed. Ease of Use: I was not able to get anywhere near a good sound out of this unit. Clicking noises and distortion was all I got. Quality: It seemed to be made well despite the fact it is made of plastic. It did seem sturdy, but I am shipping it back so I really wouldn't know how it would hold up under use. Value: I had a very cheap Nady system that sounded better than this. I gave that system to my son and he is still using it. So, no, for the price this unit was not worth it. Manufacturer Support: Did not contact the company. The Wow Factor: It is a wireless unit, how much more appeal could you ask for? Wireless is the way to go when you play live. Overall: Right out of the box this unit made clicking noises was distorted when playing with no distortion at all. When playing clean, the clicking noises were very evident when hitting any stiings, the more strings you hit the worse the problem.
Style of Music: Classic rock, blues, metal.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AKG WMS45 Wireless Instrument System"
Overall: This unit did not perform as expected. Lots of noise and terribly distorted. Clicking and cracking noises when playing single strings and chords. Tried to adjust the unit per the instructions and was not able to get this unit to work as advertised. Would not recommend this unit to anyone. Felt cheaply made and for the price this unit is definitely not worth it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
