    EM6000-US - Overview

    The Sennheiser EM 6000-US is a 2-channel digital wireless receiver that is ideal for live productions and transmissions, even in the toughest environments. It integrates seamlessly into existing digital and analog infrastructures. The EM 6000-US receiver has a digital AES3 output with word clock inputs and outputs, high-quality transformer-balanced analog XLR-3 outputs, 1/4" jack outputs and a 1/4" headphone output. It delivers quality, reliability and efficiency in a compact 19" 1RU format. The series incorporates the renowned Long Range Mode with the proprietary audio codec (SeDAC) of the wireless masterpiece, Digital 9000.

    True bit diversity evaluates the quality of each individual bit and combines the bits from the two parallel reception streams. In combination with a switching bandwidth of 244MHz and equidistant frequency grid, it provides the greatest possible transmission reliability even in demanding RF environments. The EM 6000-US is compatible with many other Sennheiser antennas and capsules and has an easy-to-follow user interface on clear OLED displays, digital and analog outputs and AES-256 encryption.

    The EM 6000-US combines the benefits of modern audio technology with an intelligent operating concept. The frequency range can be scanned directly with the receiver, which then distributes free frequencies within the network. The equipment can also be monitored and configured via Wireless System Manager (WSM) software. The high-quality OLED display provides an overview with a multitude of operating data. Intelligent home screens lead you directly to important contextual information with no need for time-consuming navigation. In addition to the popular RF graphs, the link quality display (LQI) allows a real-time evaluation of the wireless link quality. That allows you to identify and eliminate risks immediately.

    When perfection is required there can be no compromises. The EM 6000-US combines experience, high standards and excellent instincts for day-to-day work in the modern live event industry into one simple promise: no compromises in RF robustness, sound or workflow.

    PLEASE NOTE: The pictures above are for reference. This unit does not come with Dante, but a Dante version is available for order.
