Alto Professional Unveils Stealth Speaker System
Alto Professional has announced its new Stealth Wireless two-channel loudspeaker system. This self-contained kit can quickly add wireless connectivity to any installed or temporary sound system, removing the need for signal cables running out to powered speakers.
The Stealth Wireless system contains one dual-channel transmitter and two single-channel receivers. The system can be set for mono or stereo use. Two XLR + balanced TRS 1/4" combo inputs on the transmitter accommodate the main outputs from nearly any mixing console. Each of the receiving units then has a single XLR output to send the signal to a powered speaker or a traditional amplifier-and-speaker combo.
The Stealth Wireless system operates in the reliable UHF band and can be set to any of 16 preset channels for interference-free operation. Internal squelch and mute circuits eliminate unwanted noise. The transmitter offers trim controls for each channel to ensure the sound quality is unaffected, as well as signal/clip indicator lights. A mono/stereo mode switch is also provided. Setting the mode to stereo will preconfigure the two receivers for left and right operation. A channel select knob and a series of indicator LEDs are present on each of the receiving units. Each of the three modules (transmitter + two receivers) is provided with an AC power adapter.
Commenting on the new system, Alto Professional Product Manager Paul Gallo said “Alto Professional has solved the issue of toilsome cable runs with an all-in-one wireless kit that preserves the quality of the audio signal.”
An expander kit for the Stealth Wireless system will also be available, to provides two additional receivers for adding more loudspeakers to a system and providing increased coverage. The Stealth Wireless two-channel loudspeaker system will be available from May 2013 priced at approximately £299.
