Sennheiser Win Tech Achievement Awards At TEC
Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that its Digital 9000 wireless system and HDVD 800 amplifier were both recognized with Outstanding Technical Achievement awards by the TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Foundation. Sennheiser USA president Greg Beebe was on hand to accept the awards during a reception held at the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA on Friday evening.
Sennheiser’s Digital 9000 Wireless System, which took over a decade to develop, is the most advanced professional wireless system in the world and supports professionals across broadcast studios, theaters, and live performances.
The HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC meanwhile allows for optimal performance when paired with any Sennheiser audiophile headphones.
“On behalf of the entire Sennheiser team, I want to express my gratitude to the TEC Foundation for recognizing the Digital 9000 and the HDVD 800 with Outstanding Achievement awards,” said Greg Beebe. “At Sennheiser, we are committed to the Pursuit of Perfect Sound — and this commitment is reflected in products that dramatically improve our customers’ abilities to deliver audio quality that is second to none. The Digital 9000 and HDVD are two such products.”
Since the TEC Foundation was established in 1990, Sennheiser and Neumann have been presented with a cumulative total of 20 Oustanding Technical Achievement awards as well as having five products represented in the TECnology Hall of Fame, including the venerable MD 421 microphone.
The Sennheiser Digital 9000 Wireless System
The Digital 9000 Wireless System offers completely uncompressed and artifact free digital audio, combining sonic purity and outstanding dynamics. It’s the first digital wireless system that works without compression, allowing for full HD audio transmission. The system uses extremely steep filters to allow a very narrow set-up of the respective radio frequencies within the available frequency range. Through this, the risk of intermodulation is eliminated, allowing for the most reliable wireless operation.
Sennheiser HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC
The HDVD 800 Headphone Amp/DAC is a solid-state amplifier that generates the ultimate acoustic performance when paired with any of Sennheiser’s audiophile headphones. It highlights crisp, balanced and distortion-free sound through a high-quality Burr-Brown digital/analog converter (DAC). The amplifier is outfitted with an symmetrical input socket, which allows for incoming signals to be symmetrized before processing takes place. The HDVD 800 also offers an extra USB input, allowing for 24-bit data transmission at 192 kHz.
