AKG Acoustics added the PR 40, a UHF portable miniature four-level diversity receiver, to its WMS 40 Wireless Microphone System Series.

The PR 40 is suited for many different applications: Guitarists can use it in their pedal board with the GB 40 guitarbug; public-speaking situations with the MP 40 wireless transmitter; camera-mount applications for broadcast use; or with headsets and headphones used in tour-guide systems and small conference or interpretation systems. A belt clip allows the PR 40 to be attached to the user's clothes. A strip of Velcro fastener is supplied.

The PR 40 features an ultradurable glass-fiber plastic case and heavy-duty swivel joints on the antennas. The receiver can be powered with two AAA-size dry or rechargeable batteries; the battery compartment also accepts a special adapter for powering the receiver from a camera or DC power supply.

The PR 40 provides fixed line-level and adjustable headphone-level outputs. Metering includes RF, audio level and battery status LEDs. A preset squelch mutes the receiver if the received signal is too weak. The PR 40 operates on one fixed, quartz-stabilized frequency in the 710MHz to 865MHz UHF carrier frequency range and uses two swiveling UHF antennas.

List price for the individual PR40 is $250, and is available in handheld and bodypack system configurations, including the PR40/880, which includes an HT880 handheld transmitter for $436; the PR40/407, which includes a PT40 bodypack transmitter with C407L omnidirectional lavalier for $436; and the PR40/55, which includes the PT40 bodypack transmitter with a CK55L cardioid lavalier microphone for $398. All three systems include a MK HP/PR40-C video-camera cable.

The PR40 portable systems include the PR40/SO, which is the PR40 with the SO 40 wireless transmitter at a list price of $428; the PR40/MP, which includes the MP 40 micropenä at a list price of $448. Both systems include the MK HP/PR40-C video-camera cables.
