Massive Trantec outlay for Stage Sound Services

test 9 September 2008

UK: Cardiff’s Stage Sound Services has purchased Trantec S6000 and S5.5 systems, writes David Davies. Recent growth in the corporate and theatre sectors has prompted the pro-audio supplier to purchase a further 16 channels of Trantec’s S6000 wireless systems – making a grand total of 60 – and 50 channels of Trantec S5.5 wireless mics. Early applications for the new S6000s include the ‘Godspell’ UK tour and a Shakespeare season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

The S6000 is a new generation radio mic which is designed and engineered specifically for professional users. The system is available in half- and full-width 1U rackmount versions, and also as a compact 8-way 2U rack. The UHF system comprises antenna distribution, headphone monitor and a small format PC.

“Despite all the current talk of downturns in the market, we have been going from strength to strength, and to keep up with this demand we have now taken our stock levels to over 100 channels of wireless,” said Phil Hurley, Stage Sound’s managing director. “I have used Trantec ever since I founded the company, and some of those original systems are still in use today. However, technology has moved on, and knowing it was time to replenish our stocks I had a good look at the latest systems around. For both quality and value for money, it made the Trantec S6000 the easy choice.”

The first outing for the new S5.5, meanwhile, was Orbit Theatre’s production of Me and My Girl at the New Theatre in Cardiff.

“The S5.5 system is undeniably a popular choice that provides top features, a reliable performance, and a price point that cannot be matched by any other manufacturer,” said Trantec’s head of sales and marketing, Mark Parkhouse. “Stage Sound Services’ loyalty to Trantec systems has always been reassuring, and we wish them many more years of continued satisfaction with our products.”
