MIPRO has unveiled the MI-58 digital stereo IEM system, which operates in the ISM 5.8 GHz spectrum, with the company stating that due to the wider bandwidth property, it offers wide 20 Hz to 23 kHz frequency response, improved signal-to-noise ratio, and very low audio latency.
The MI-58, providing 24-bit digital audio, has an engineer mode and networking interfaces designed to better meet the specific needs of monitor engineers. The MI-58TD transmitter also has an (Audinate) Dante audio networking interface.
The MI-58 product family consists of the MI-58R stereo bodypack receiver, the MI-58T stereo half-rack transmitter, the MI-58TD stereo half-rack transmitter, and two optional stereo earphones, designed to supply balanced full-range sound reproduction and solid isolation from ambient noise.
The system comes equipped with the volume indicator that’s designed to be easy to read, so users can identify the input volume status easily by red (peak)/green (OK)/yellow (low) color LEDs and then make the proper adjustment. In addition, the MI-58R has the stereo/mono/mixed output modes and four EQ settings to further customize the sound, and 3.5 mm TRS jack stated to provide left/right 100 mW at 16-ohm output for earphones. For extended battery life and elimination of disposable batteries, the MI-58R is compatible with the ICR 18500 lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
The front panel of the MI-58T transmitter offers a graphic OLED screen with menu-based navigation, a rotary knob, an ACT sync button, an audio input set button. A 3.5 mm and a 6.3 mm earphone monitoring connectors and individual volume controls are both provided for any earphones. The rear panel is equipped with two XLR and 6.3 mm input combo jacks and two 6.3 mm phone jack loop outputs as well as the ACT-BUS networking interface, optional Dante interface, TNC RF output connectors, and 12V DC power supply.
The MI-58T delivers < 25 mW output power (the maximum value depends on the telecom regulations of different countries) with an on/off switch, presets for several interference-free channels, and ACT sync to the receiver. The stereo input combo jack is designed to provide a high dynamic range characteristic, do the system can sustain the maximum output from any mixer.
MIPRO is distributed in the U.S. by Avlex.
