  • Sony Wireless Audio components confusion

    Good morning all,

    I am in need of revising wireless ENG audio for a camera that came in from NZ. The WRR-855A receiver and it’s companion belt-pack TX are operating out of band 66 – no longer viable here in the US.

    In seeking out a receiver (RX) and plug-on transmitter (TX) combination, I am again running into a familiar problem with Sony’s documentation – what you cannot find is a source of information that shows which of their past components go together. Searching is a haphazard and time-consuming process.

    Specifically – I would like to know if any of the WRR-series receivers can work with a plug-on TX known as the WRT-8P (this TX includes phantom power and mic/line input capabilities). I am not able to find any documentation on this specific transmitter, and operations manuals on the various versions of the receiver are not consistent in the layout of the features & other information. (the reason for sticking with this generation of gear is that the camera has a slot-in camera adaptor for these WRR receivers, with all the advantages of internal power and audio signal handling).

    In short – ‘what goes with what’ and where can you look it up? I think this is the common problem with adding older equipment to a working set of gear – Sony like other large companies has moved along, and may have little reason to keep this essential information available. If you happen to still own the WRT-8P and have any document for it still in existence, I would appreciate seeing it.
