Sennheiser has announced that Leisuretec, specialist distributor of professional and commercial audio, lighting, video and special effects, has taken delivery of the UK’s first stock of lapel, headmic and handheld SpeechLine Digital Wireless systems. This significant investment places Leisuretec as Sennheiser’s number one UK supplier to the trade.
SpeechLine Digital Wireless is the world’s first wireless digital microphone to be designed exclusively for speech applications. The most important requirements placed on microphones for speech applications are easy installation and operation, a high level of reliability and future-proof technology.
For SpeechLine Digital Wireless, Sennheiser’s engineers developed a completely new wireless microphone. Installation, operation and adjustment are easier than those of any other microphone; once the microphone has been configured, users do not require any audio know-how – it is already built-in. This enables speakers to focus entirely on their speech during meetings, lectures or presentations instead of having to think about the microphone they are using.
“Our association with Sennheiser spans several decades, during which we have proved that we are at the forefront of the UK industry,” said Leisuretec Managing Director, Cliff Dounting. “While there are other products available, Sennheiser’s is different and ticks many boxes. It delivers speech only and the security aspects are particularly good for the corporate and banking, sectors. We also believe there are opportunities within the hire and events markets for conferencing, making it absolutely perfect for Leisuretec’s customer base. We are delighted that Sennheiser has chosen to work with Leisuretec to deliver SpeechLine Digital Wireless to the UK market.”
Cliff’s confidence has already been proven, with Leisuretec’s first sale confirmed.“We pride ourselves very much on providing a very personal approach when selling to our clients and I’m very proud of our sales team’s achievements. We have already had our first order, ironically placed through our ‘trade’ website,” said Cliff. “SpeechLine is already gaining momentum!”
“I know that this is going to be a very successful product range for Sennheiser,” added Simon Holley, Sennheiser Sales Director – Pro A/V & Systems Integrator UK & Ireland. “We are delighted that Leisuretec is so perfectly placed to maximise on its success.”
