OVERVIEW

Two handheld VHF mics and a 2-channel receiver for the price of a single system.

The Nady DKW-Duo is a dual channel VHF handheld mic system. The DKW-Duo makes a perfect entry-level system: all the advantages and freedom of wireless operation without cumbersome cords. Easy to use, simply plug in instead of your wired microphone. Excellent high fidelity audio, perfect for all speakers, karaoke/recreational singers, DJs, auctioneers, aerobic instructors, and many other consumer applications.

The Nady DKW-Duo features VHF (170-216MHz) operation for reliable, interference-free performance with 150+ feet typical operating range. Up to 300+ feet line-of-sight. With a dual receiver for versatile single or simultaneous dual transmitter operation.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this 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 FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

FEATURES
  • Receiver:
  • High-band VHF (170-216MHz) operation for interference-free performance
  • Advanced audio processing circuitry for a wide dynamic range (no overloading for loud inputs or background hiss during quiet use)
  • Complete controls and connections for easy operation
  • Special added circuitry to eliminate transmitter on/off pop noise
  • Handheld Microphone Transmitter:
  • Each transmitter operates on a separate single frequency in the VHF 170-216MHz band and can be used singly or together simultaneously with the DKW-DUO dual receiver
  • Easy, convenient operation with on/off switch and low battery LED indicator which flashes once for unit "ON", and lights steady for low battery alert
  • Nady DM-20 unidirectional dynamic cartridge for optimum true sound, maximum feedback rejection, and minimal handling noise
  • Each transmitter operates up to 15 hours on a single 9V alkaline battery

Read the above. I believe you'll find wht you're looking for there.
I've had these mics for a year now, and I can't say anything bad about them. They aren't deserving of the accolades that pricey higher quality mics get, but, for the money, you really can't go wrong. I use them primarily for my karaoke shows, and I get hours of use before battery change, very long wireless range and consistent quality of sound. As for those who post that they feed back, I suggest you learn about EQ. Not knowing how to properly dial up sound seperates the men from the boys in this business. There's a balanced sweet spot you have to find with most wireless mics between the sensitivity/range settings on the reciever, your mic trim and your output volume. Once you find it, you're off and running! My mics are clear, loud and well sonically balanced, with nary a feedback issue. In larger venues, I do have to turn up the volume for good projection, and the light plastic bodies of these mics do give issue to thumping when handled roughly, like when someone claps during a performance while holding the mic. Not so a-typical. Happens with some dynamic mics too. But let's face it, if a customer destroys one of these babies, I can replace them for a laughably low cost, and I'm confident that the replacements will suffice as well as their predecessors. I use a higher end wireless for myself, and yes, there's a difference in the warmth and response, but I'm a professional singer, and it's my job to impress. I let really good singers use my mic on occasion, but there have been times when I had no battery for my Shure, and had to use the Nadys myself. I get no diminished crowd response as a result. Do yourself a favor, try them out. Stop using your volume slider to correct feedback issues, and learn about EQ, and you'll be very pleased with the results.
Durable, light weight and not battery burners. Good sound for many applications.
For what I use them for, there's no better deal out there.

I bought this as a backup wireless system for my church and some dj gigs that I do. I know it is very inexpensive and you usually get what you pay for but this was unusable even from the start. First of all, turning on the the wireless receiver without the mics on it creates a loud terrible buzz! Turning on a mic stops the buzz but then turning it back off brings it back! Also moving the mics create a scratchy noise. I've had experiences with cheaper wireless systems that at least worked for a few months before these things started happening but this one was bad from the start. I highly recommend spending a little more money and getting something more reliable if you are planning to use these in any sort of professional situation.

    Comments about Nady DKW-Duo Dual Channel VHF Handheld Microphone System:

    I have had these DKW-Duo mics for many years. So, I got a new set. It was time to replace the old beat up ones. They are inexpensive, plastic, feel ok in your hand. Perfect to hand over to drunk party people wanting to make toasts or sing Karaoke. I lost an expensive mic to a groom who swears he didn't lose/abuse it. So now I pass out these and use a Shure for myself. Over time, one got cracked where you put in the battery, used some duct tape to fix (fancy!). Note: be gentle putting in and taking out the battery, once in no issues. Take out the battery when not in use, saves the life of the 9v. I would get about 6 to 8 events out of one battery, each event lasted 4 to 6 hours. They are pretty durable and still work at a good distance. Two mics with one input on the mixing board, that's handy. For the price, you can't go wrong. Remember, you get what you pay for.

          Cheap but not worth it. Pure junk. Very tinny sound. Keeps cutting out Very directional so turning your head causes loss of signal. Very poor rf range need to be within 20 feet of receiver. Easy setup and operation but quality of sound is so poor I had to just turn the PA off because it was so annoying to listen to. Can't imagine it would be suitable for any application. I won't use them again. Waste of money.

            Installed in a small worship chapel, very compact, easy to use, mike color coded banding and bezel area of volume controls ensure correct selection. Sound quality is very good, suitable for homes, small churches, small civic organizations and places where non-hard use and reasonable equipment care is the norm.

            using both mics at the same time seems to confuse the system; but one at a time seems to work.
