TOA has increased the range and audibility of its wireless microphones, by including a built-in antenna on both lavaliere and WM-5220 hand-held models, increasing support for low-noise condenser microphones, and making all lavaliere microphones omnidirectional.
Microphone running costs have been reduced as well, thanks to TOA's exclusive singlebattery power supply feature, which also makes possible a slimmer, easier-to-hold microphone body design. Further lavaliere innovations include single-battery operation, a connector that supports Ý3.5 mini-plugs (EIAJ RC701) for TOA microphones, and a lighter body transmitter for the headset models. For greater operational precision, the microphone LED now comes in two colors. The latest
The TOA DP-L2 Digital Ambient Noise Controller is the easy, automatic solution to the problem of keeping BGM and announcements audible and understandable when the ambient noise levels at an airport check-in counter or boarding gate, or a shopping mall, restaurant or pub, are higher because a large number of people are present.Furthermore, the DP-L2 also works to keep music
and information audio from reaching levels that
are irritating to customers and staff when the
surrounding ambient noise levels are not so high.
High-efficiency amplifier topology.
TOA's proprietary amplifier topology achieves approximately 85% efficiency in AC mains to output power conversion. The high-efficiency, compact design operates at much lower temperature levels eliminating the need for large heat sinks.
