Sony’s UWPX8/42 is a UHF-synthesized wireless microphone system that consists of a UTX-M03 handheld microphone and a URX-M2 tuner module. Suitable for use in PA systems, this system’s tuner module can be installed in an MB-X6 tuner frame (or in SRP series powered mixers). The UWP-X8 includes extremely robust metal construction with a newly designed UWP-D series UTX-M03 handheld transmitter, which must be set to “UWP” compander mode to work with URX-M2 tuner module.

This system achieves stable transmission and reception by using a UHF PLL (Phase Locked Loop) frequency synthesized system, which provides accurate carrier signal frequencies as well as 188 highly stable, user-selectable frequencies in increments of 125 kHz on each model. Simultaneous multi-channel operation is also a feature of Sony's UWPX8/42, which can handle up to 16 wireless microphones. By using the pre-programmed frequency groups, users can easily choose interference-free frequencies for the transmitters and tuners, simplifying system setup.

To avoid picking up carrier signals transmitted from other systems, the transmitter transmits a 32 kHz pilot-tone signal along with the audio signal. The tuner’s squelch circuit recognizes this tone signal, and outputs the audio signal only when this tone signal is received. This prevents the output of unwanted signals and noise from other signal transmission in the air, as well as the RF and popping noise(s) that occur when the transmitter is powered on/off.

Typically, wireless microphone transmission systems can be subject to reception interruptions (signal dropout), but UWP series tuners reduce this to a minimum. By utilizing a space-diversity reception system, it achieves stable reception by using dual-antenna inputs/reception circuits. These receive signals over two different paths and automatically select the stronger RF signal for output. UWP Series transmitters and receivers can also be purchased separately.

Consumer Alert

This particular wireless microphone device operates in portions of the 617-652 MHz or 663-698 MHz frequencies. Beginning in 2017, these frequencies are being transitioned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the 600 MHz service to meet increasing demand for wireless broadband services. Users of this device must cease operating on these frequencies no later than July 13, 2020. In addition, users of this device may be required to cease operations earlier than that date if their operations could cause harmful interference to a 600 MHz service licensee’s wireless operations on these frequencies. For more information, visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at or call the FCC at 1- 888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC).
