The SKM 5200 continues the tradition of the world class SKM 5000. Elements such as award-winning design, multiple Sennheiser and Neumann capsule options and modularity were kept, while the mechanics, electronics and user interface were completely redesigned and adapted to exceed the requirements of the most demanding live events. The new handheld transmitter offers robust mechanics, a high level of frequency agility and a menu-driven user interface via the backlit LCD. The SKM 5200 is available in three colors: black, nickel and steel blue. The new handheld transmitter is compatible with all capsules, battery and rechargeable battery compartments of the 5000 series.

Most users do not need a license to operate a wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating a microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at
