Sennheiser’s 9000 Series digital wireless system is the latest weapon of choice for theatre sound designers, Loh Humm Audio. After a successful trial run on the West End production of Dear World with a system, sound designer Mike Walker (pictured, right) decided to invest in a 9000 Series for the company.
Walker had been using Sennheiser’s 5000 Series systems for around 15 years, and says he was keen to try the update. He was more than impressed with the 9000, calling it “the best-sounding digital microphone system I’ve heard, by quite a large margin”. Loh Humm has invested in 24 channels of the series, and plans for using the system next year are already in motion. Walker said: “We’re using 9000 Series on Oh What A Lovely War at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East in February and March next year. It’s the play’s 50th anniversary and being staged in the 100th anniversary year of the start of the First World War.” www.loh-humm.comen-uk.sennheiser.com
