AKG Acoustics' new TriPower Series microphones offers a choice of either wired or wireless operation with the same microphone.

The D 3700M (shown) and D 3800M uses AKG's patented Varimotion System, which allows the transducer's response to be fine tuned as the diaphragm is molded. The top-of-the-line C 5900M has excellent articulation, but without the "reach" that can cause audio problems on live stages. The spring steel-wire mesh cap with integrated foam screen provides rugged durability and reliable control of wind noise, and the mechanical system is very strong and can handle lots of abuse. They also have a new look and feel with ergonomic triangular handles.

The D 3700M is a dynamic cardioid and the D 3800M is a dynamic supercardioid for use on loud stages and adds a humbucking coil for freedom from electrical interference; the C 5900M is a condenser supercardioid with the clarity of a condenser and features a low-frequency roll-off and -6dB pads. All TriPower models are shipped in a metal hard-shell road case and come with the new SA 61 unbreakable stand clamp.

An option for the new TriPower Line is the AKG TM 40 UHF plug-in transmitter. The TM 40 connects quickly and easily to the D 3700M, D 3800M and C 5900M, allowing each microphone to be switched from wired to wireless. The TM 40 is compatible with AKG's WMS40 UHF receivers.

The list price of the AKG D 3700M is $195; the same model with a switch is $210. The list price of the AKG D 3800M is $252; the switched version is $266. The AKG C 5900M has a list price of $398. All TriPower models come with a two-year parts-and-labor warranty from AKG.
