The dual-channel, frequency-agile Concert 288 Handheld allows for up to 24 systems (48 performers) to operate simultaneously (region dependent). The Concert 288 Handheld gives both performers an impressive 300’ range of wireless operation between the transmitters and receiver, making the system ideal for large stages and crowd participation. To ensure interference-free performance, the Concert 288 Handheld features a true diversity design. If a drop out does occur, the receiver’s tone key triggers an Auto Mute function to eliminate any background noise until the signal is restored.

Featuring a user-friendly front panel, the CR288 Wireless Receiver provides the system with fast and easy setup. To find your optimal channel, the CR288 provides two Select buttons for auto syncing the receiver and transmitter channels via an infrared signal. The panel also contains a dual 7-segment LED to show the operating channels, two Volume knobs, two tuned antennas, as well as Ready and Peak indicators for optimal functionality and monitoring. The back of the receiver features two separate balanced XLR outputs for routing signals to two separate mixer channels, as well as a 1/4” unbalanced mix output that condense both signals to a single channel for a direct connection into a PA speaker.

The Concert 288 Handheld features two CH288 Handheld Transmitters with Q6 Dynamic Microphone capsules. These handheld mics bring maximum versatility to any dual-user application, particularly duet performances, as well as audience participation and interview situations. The transmitters, which can operate for up to eight hours on two AA batteries each, are engineered to the finest detail to provide the ultimate in sound reproduction.
