AKG pocket transmitters, PT420 and PT45 compatibility

Postby pointfive » Mon Feb 26, 2018 5:40 pm

Please excuse all the model number abbreviations here...

We use a UK Band D AKG PT45 transmitter with headset mic, connected to a WMS45 receiver (5 channel system)

I'd like to run a backup AKG system for the headset, but also adding an HT45 mic to use as required (for clients to use for speeches, etc). This would allow me to run a head set and a mic system at the same time, but also allow an instant backup headset system should the main headset system go down. I worry about these things, you see.

So I can get a HT45 and SR45 together rather cheaply second hand, but it's not easy to find a deal on a PT45. I have found a PT420 (which is a newer 8 channel transmitter) for much reasonableness.

Question is (if there are any AKG gearheads here), can I use the PT420 with the SR45? Is it backwardly compatible? Or should I try asking questions directly to an enormous international company who would rather prefer me to buy something complete, and new? :)

Regards,

Martin

Found this, which answers my question.

Might be useful for others?
