What is it? The first model in Clear-Com’s new RS-700 Series of wired, analogue beltpacks for use in applications such as rental/staging, performing arts centres and houses of worship. Details The RS-701 is a single-channel beltpack combining high headroom and low-noise audio with rugged designed to withstand “the most challenging production environments”. Features include swappable microphone options and built-in limiters in the headsets plus wide dynamic range and audio contouring to ensure intelligible voice communications at every audio level. All 700 Series beltpacks feature recessed rotary volume controls as well as Talk and Call keys protected against accidental activation. An LED-off mode is also available for applications where complete darkness is necessary, while a concealed DIP switch on the back of the beltpack allows quick and easy selection of audio and key options including switching between electret or dynamic headset microphones and setting levels for headphone input and microphone output. Call with talk operation and latch or non-latch keying are also available. And another thing… RS-700 beltpacks are built to be fully compatible with all Clear-Com legacy partyline systems and are protected against damage from accidental connection to other XLR-3 equipped digital systems, such as HelixNet.
