The Lectrosonics DCHR

First Look at the Lectrosonics DCHR

Earlier today, Lectrosonics announced the new DCHR miniature, stereo digital receiver! It looks familiar because it is in the same lineup as the DCHT stereo digital transmitter. The DCHR is aimed at production sound, sports video production, reality TV, and anywhere a wireless stereo camera hop or a super-compact digital receiver is needed. Regardless of the application, the Lectrosonics DCHR is definitely an incredible transmitter in a very tight form factor.


The DCHR is not only compatible with the DCHT. It is also able to receive from many transmitters in the Lectrosonics D Squared lineup:

    1. M2T (unencrypted Stereo TX)
    2. M2T-X (encrypted Stereo TX)
    3. DBu
    4. DHu
    5. DPR

Here is a quick list of the key features:

  • Tunes across 144 MHz from 470-614 MHz (covers A1 and B1 ranges)
  • Compatible with DBu, DHu, DPR, DCHT, and MT2 Transmitters
  • Selectable AES3 or analog mic/line-level outputs
  • AES 256-CTR encryption
  • USB port for firmware updates
  • Two AA battery power
  • Solid machined aluminum housing
  • Optional powering from external DC with LTBATELIM
