Shure re-launched its PSM 700 Personal Monitor System for two new frequency bands: H3 (524 to 554 MHz) and L2 (632 to 662 MHz), which features Shure's patented Audio Reference Companding and more compatible channels than before.

The PSM 700 draws its sonic characteristics from redesigned circuitry using Audio Reference Companding. Unlike traditional wireless companding schemes that are restricted by a fixed compression ratio, this technology uses a variable compression ratio, eliminating wireless artifacts during quiet passages and superior dynamic range.

In addition to the improved audio, two new frequency bands, H3 and L2, have been created. The new bands offer a total of up to 64 usable frequencies in the 524 to 554MHz and 632 to 662MHz ranges, thereby permitting the simultaneous operation of as many as 32 systems when combining both bands (area-dependent).

Other features include a frequency locator that quickly identifies any available channels within a given environment and improved/integrated dynamic overload protection that reduces RF distortion. The system has also been further optimized with redesigned frequency-select controls on the PSM 700 transmitter, offering easier readability.

Pricing for upgraded PSM 700 systems and individual components remain unchanged. An active antenna combiner (model PA821) and directional antenna (model PA805WB) have been added to the Shure catalog, as well.
