Lectrosonics' Karl Winkler (left) and Bob Heil cut the cord to commemorate their companies' partnership on a new wireless mic.RIO RANCHO, NM-Lectrosonics and Heil Sound have entered into a strategic partnership which has already resulted in a new handheld wireless microphone. Known as the Lectrosonics UTPR20, the mic combines the capsule from Heil Sound's PR20 dynamic microphone with Lectrosonics' UT Series Digital Hybrid Wireless transmitters, thus ensuring compandor-free audio for wide dynamic range and neutral frequency response.

Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics director of business development, commented on the new strategic partnership: "I'm personally very excited about the partnership between Heil Sound and Lectrosonics. Bob Heil literally wrote the book on concert sound and has worked with everyone in the industry. The combination of the UT transmitter and the Heil PR20 capsule brings out the best in both components. This is a win-win partnership in every way."
Bob Heil, CEO and founder of Heil Sound, echoed Winkler's enthusiasm. "We have recognized for some time that we needed a wireless microphone offering, but we were more interested in partnering with an established player as opposed to re-inventing the wheel. This past summer, Karl and I were working together on a project for 'American Idol', and the opportunity for collaboration presented itself."

Lectrosonics showed the new UTPR20 at Winter NAMM, and anticipates delivery of the product this month.
