Following research and consulting a professional sound engineer we have concluded that the microphone used for services (and other events) should ideally be replaced with a professional “shotgun” lectern microphone and a professional digital transmitter / receiver.
This equipment would normally cost around £1,000 but we have managed to source them for £500 on sale or return. The equipment was successfully used last Shabbat – the feedback we have received is that the sound quality (both in the Synagogue, via the hearing loop and over the Internet) is much better.
We are hoping that some members will feel able to support our Synagogue by making a donation towards the cost. Many thanks if you can help:
