The ChatPack Desktop Sound Field System, model TA-1, is an FM amplification system designed for use by individuals who are hard of hearing. This desktop system can be used in a classroom to increase the voice level of the teacher over background noise, or it can be used with a variety of audio sources such as a television, VCR, or DVD player. The system includes a ChatPack desktop speaker, a receiver, a transmitter, and a headset. The receiver provides a link between the wireless microphone transmitter and the speaker unit. This FM system operates in the interference-free 216 megahertz (MHz) Low Power Radio Service band recently allocated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) type services. The transmitter can be as far away as 200 feet from the speaker without the speaker requiring any exposed antennas. The audio frequency response of the speaker is equalized through the FM system to enhance the psophometric response while maintaining a high acoustic gain before feedback. This equalization maximizes the wireless microphone transmitter's ability to operate in close proximity to the speaker without accruing feedback. The system includes one short connecting cord that provides power to both the receiver and audio to the speaker unit. The receiver can also be used as a personal FM receiver with a neck-loop, earphones, or with direct audio-input cords for hearing aids or a cochlear speech processor. The speaker unit and the receiver are housed in a protective carrying pouch. POWER: The speaker uses 6 standard double-A nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries, which also "Phantom"-powers the receiver. The system comes with a dual charger that charges both the speaker and the wireless microphone transmitter. WARRANTY: One year.
