mzd_8000.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – JUNE 2009: Sennheiser is introducing the MZD 8000 digital module for the popular MKH 8000 Series at InfoComm 2009. Now, the MKH 8000 series can be digitalized directly at the microphone head, ensuring a natural sound without any loss of quality.

“A warm, natural, yet fantastically clear and powerful, sound is what makes the MKH 8000 series really stand out,” explains Dawn Birr, Sennheiser’s product manager for professional products. “The new digital module ensures that this sound is maintained in full quality along the entire signal chain, in contrast to conventional digitalization, which uses a separate analogue/digital converter at some stage along the chain. The MZD 8000 digital module eliminates cable losses and, most importantly, features a converter and surrounding circuitry that have been optimally matched to the microphone.” more
