AKG AKG P5iAKG has released AKG P5i high-performance dynamic vocal microphone – the first designed to automatically configure with the new Harman Connected PA ecosystem for integrated set-up, and recall of performer and presets.

‘AKG P5i is the ideal microphone for musicians who want to spend less time setting up and more time focusing on their music,’ says Harman Professional Solutions Product Line Manager, Erich Gaertner. ‘Unlike ordinary handheld live mics, P5i automatically recognises and configures with the Connected PA ecosystem of products to take the guesswork out of setting up and getting consistently great sound. And with legendary AKG engineering and sound quality at its core, P5i brings out the best in any performance.’ 

Based on the AKG P5 dynamic vocal microphone, the P5i has a supercardioid polar pattern for high gain before feedback and suppression of ambient noise, even in loud use. The heavy-duty metal body construction is designed to withstand tough stage performances, and an integrated windscreen efficiently eliminates pop and wind noise.

AKG P5i is part of the Harman Connected PA family of products, and offers full compatibility with the new Harman Connected PA app. Connected PA eliminates the need for multiple apps or GUIs, and delivers seamless plug-and-play operation with a variety of Harman equipment so users can control their entire live sound system with one app. Products within the Connected PA ecosystem self-identify with the new app for effortless set up, and setup wizards help customers to quickly optimise volume, configuration settings and sound quality.

The Connected PA product ecosystem is enabled via Harman’s ioSYS technology and initially includes equipment from Soundcraft, JBL, dbx and AKG, allowing systems to suit specific needs. Additional Harman equipment can be added to extend flexibility and provide for future expansion. At launch, compatible products include the Soundcraft Ui12, Ui16, and Ui24R digital mixers; JBL PRX800W Series loudspeakers; and dbx DI1 Active DI Box Box.

Harman Professional Solutions plans to add many new products to the Connected PA ecosystem to provide musicians with greater versatility and adaptable performance. 

The AKG P5i microphone will be available in Q1 2017.
