The Adventure of Ten Hour Tours with HARMAN’s AKG DMS 700 Wireless System

SHANGHAI, China – Based on the international comedy, “Whose Wife is it Anyway,” the Hai Team, a touring group in China reconstructed The Adventures of Ten Hour with a delicate dramatic structure and the comedic, edgy style known from the group.  In front of a crowded audience, the Hai Team relies on HARMAN’s AKG DMS 700 wireless system to ensure their eight channels perfectly and clearly execute winning acts.

Headlining at the Shanghai Grand Theatre, the seven actors in the show utilized AKG’s HC577L headset mics over 12 channels – eight live and four backups. The system consists of six DSR700 dual receivers, two PS4000W antenna splitters; a PSU4000 for power and an HUB4000Q network connector.

Action China, a distributor in China supplied the system and technical support during the show, which ran from December 14-18, 2011.

The performers wore their DPT700 pocket receivers connected to the headsets.  During the five days of performances, the system worked flawlessly, even with multiple other performances in the venue and broadcasting trucks outside, both utilizing wireless systems.

“We were able to put on a great show with no interference with AKG DMS 700,” said Zhao Tao, the chief actor. “We take pride in our performances and always make sure the audience is entertained. With a clear frequency and zero interruption, we can make sure the audience completely enjoys the performances.”

VIENNA, Austria – With a nearly full schedule throughout the year, performing in his own bands, touring with GRAMMY Award-winning artists and recording in studio sessions, Peter Thorn, the self-proclaimed Guitar Nerd, relies on HARMAN’s AKG DMS700 wireless system during live performances.  Working with artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Chris Cornell, Jewel, Alicia Keys and Don Henley, among others throughout his career, Thorn credits his guitar’s “true” sound to the reliability of AKG.

On the lookout for the absolute best in wireless on the market – a system offering great sound and zero dropout/interference – Thorn, who has played guitar from an early age and attended the Guitar Institute of Technology in Los Angeles, was introduced to AKG’s wireless system through friend and co-guitar star, Steve Stevens of the Billy Idol Band.  With promises of the best sound he will ever hear from Stevens, Thorn immediately started working with DMS700 on tour.

“DMS700 works flawlessly and sounds amazing. It really is the best system I’ve ever used in my career,” stated Thorn.  “The environment scan itself is an amazing feature that allows you to ensure you have zero RF interference, but it’s the true sound AKG provides my music that keeps my performances at their best.  DMS700 is absolutely indistinguishable from an actual cable plugged into my guitar.  When I use DMS700, it’s one less worry I have about my performance.”

Along with the DMS700 wireless system, Thorn boasts an AKG C214 microphone and an original Digitech Whammy pedal for studio sessions.

Thorn’s latest album Guitar Nerd, was released in 2011 and is available online at the iTunes store, on Amazon and CDbaby.  For more information on Peter Thorn, please visit http://www.peterthorn.com and for AKG, visit http://www.akg.com,

VIENNA, Austria – As Glee and The Sing Off shine a new light on the vocal performance culture, Rockapella is celebrating 20 years of wowing audiences around the globe with a vast variety of musical selections spanning all genres, and utilizing only their voices for melodies, harmonies, and percussion.  Setting the stage for their annual Holiday Show Tour in 2012, the 5-man ‘band’ will travel the nation, backed up by HARMAN’s AKG DMS 700 digital and WMS 4500 wireless systems.

Along with the group’s unique solo performances, in 2012 Rockapella will be teaming up with the internationally acclaimed Boston Pops Orchestra during select legs of its Holiday Tour.  Combining the intricate harmonies of the “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” theme singers with the Boston Pops, the 2012 tour will offer beautiful renditions of the world’s favorite holiday songs, as well as original music, performed a cappella and with the full Pops ensemble.

“Being a completely vocal group, the sound of Rockapella is the most important aspect during all performances, and AKG provides the guys a smooth, natural sound to showcase their talents,” said Fred Schuchman, FOH, Rockapella.  “I love the sound of AKG – it’s the best in the industry.  We’ve relied on so many of the AKG systems – from the early days of the WMS 400 series – and the group still blows audiences away with its amazing arrangements and sound in venues large and small.”

“The highest compliment I can pay AKG is, whether on stage or in the studio, their mics are a completely transparent and natural extension of my voice and performance.  They just make me sound like a better me,” stated Scott Leonard, Rockapella’s high tenor and longest tenured member.

With a 6-channel AKG DMS 700 system combined with WMS 4500 bodypack for vocal percussionist Jeff Thacher’s throat microphones, which pick up the deep tones of a full-piece drum set, Schuchman is able to control the group’s pure sound easily from his FOH position with no worry of cut-outs or interference.  Designed to deliver the best audio quality, channel quality and easy operation, DMS prevents distortion of the group’s voices, providing the audience with an amazing performance.

“When your voices and mouths deliver your entire act, your microphones are everything,” stated Thacher, who has been a member of the group since 1993.  “Having the studio-quality response and reliability of AKG’s DMS 700 mics really makes a difference.  It’s a real pleasure hearing the final product.”

“It’s very easy to warm up to AKG, which is very important when we are on the road, both across the nation and round the world,” Schuchman continued.  “When Rockapella is performing with AKG, you know the band is comfortable and confident with their sound – you know it’s going to be a great show.”

Rockapella starts their nation-wide Holiday Tour with the Boston Pops on November 27, 2011 in Iowa City, Iowa and concludes on December 18 in Massachusetts.

VIENNA, Austria – With 12 halls ranging in total seating capacity from 130 to 586, connected with outdated analog wireless capabilities, Atea Audio Visuell Kommunikation (AVK) of Sweden installed a complete digital HARMAN AKG DMS 700 wireless system in one of Sweden’s largest education facilities, Stockholm University.  Combining a long-time relationship between supplier Septon Electronic AB and Stockholm University and RF frequency shifts in Sweden, the upgraded solution was perfectly coordinated, timed and implemented for 2011 sessions.

Exclusively distributing HARMAN professional brands in Sweden, Septon and Atea installed a future-proof digital system that was easy to handle and offered stable transmission ability. Atea installed 48 channels of DMS 700 digital wireless, all networked through HARMAN Professional’s HiQnet System Architect™.

“The Stockholm University Support and Maintenance Department laid out the challenges clearly from the beginning: a future-proof, simple-to-use and logistically sound solution was vital to the university,” stated Sales Manager Stefan Eriksson, Atea.  “With the AKG DMS 700, we were able to provide the complete solution and the encryption possibilities added even more value, securing the wireless transmission within the halls.”

For speech reinforcement throughout the lecture rooms, the self-operated DPT 700 body packs were ideal for the professors in the halls, while the DHT 700 handheld transmitters were required for the reception desks throughout the university.

“The lecturers have adapted quickly and easily to their new digital world,” continued Eriksson.  “Any inherent fears of adapting to the new technology were quickly resolved and the school year has proceeded with little to no technical issues.”
