Xena

 MIDI XENA AMPLIFIER The Xena Midi amplifier is sufficiently powerful to meet most amplification needs - in the home or office environment.

AMPLIFIERS

The Xena (formerly Medela) range of amplifiers give high quality amplification and portability, with hand held or hands-free option The Xena range of amplifiers are high quality products designed especially to meet the needs of those individuals with weak or whisper voices. Extensive tests have shown that the sound reproduction by the amplifier is very close to that of a natural voice.This is especially important for a person with a very weak voice. LIGHTWEIGHT

• Xena Amplifiers are simple to use, lightweight and small. The small amplifier incorporates a leather effect carrying pouch - as well as a belt/pocket clip for attachment.

• For many people the microphone works best when positioned to the side of the mouth - but virtually touching the lips. DISCREET HEADSET This ensures correct positioning of the microphone.

• • Correct positioning provides excellent sound amplification, not achieved by many other systems.

• The headframe is ultra lightweight which makes the unit readily acceptable. MORE AMPLIFICATION WHEN YOU NEED IT

• If a higher sound level is required the larger Midi Amplifier, 2.0 Watt with built in speaker, is of great value, especially when addressing large audiences or talking to people who have hearing difficulties.

• Xena Amplifiers provide the versatility

in a sound system which people are now demanding - high quality amplification, optional no hands freedom and portability. See page 8 for order details.

Amplicord AMPLIFIER

Give those with weak or whisper voice the choice of hand-held or headset microphones •

The design of the amplifier unit allows the body of the amplifier to be attached to breast pockets, belts, or, with the use of the carrying case, it can be worn around the neck. AMPLICORD HEADSET - HANDS FREE AMPLIFICATION Many people need a microphone system which allows both hands to be free. One of the benefits of the headset is that the microphone is always in place, even when the head moves, ensuring good contact and pick-up of sound.

•To enhance the sound the microphone has an in-built wind sock which reduces unwanted sound.

The headset microphone is lightweight, very comfortable to wear and features a flexible microphone for accurate positioning.

Volume is easily managed by the use of the volume control on the top surface of the Amplifier.

Kapitex have developed a range of amplifiers giving the user the power to communicate.The Amplicord has been designed and manufactured in Britain using the latest electronics and uni-directional microphone systems.

Effective amplification in classroom, lecture theatre, office - or in the home

Xena Flexital WIRELESS AMPLIFIER

With the Flexital wireless hands free portable personal amplification system, Kapitex can provide the latest technology in an amplification system, which allows people with weak or whisper voice to easily project their voice with comfort and confidence to audiences large or small.

The Flexital is designed to be completely portable and ensures free unattached movement around the classroom, lecture theatre, office or home.The flexital is a wireless system comprising of radio transmitter, receiver/amplifier, and a choice of microphones. The headset microphone can also be attached to spectacles bows which makes for a less conspicuous attachment. HOW FLEXITAL WORKS

• Sound enters the microphone attached to the transmitter - the transmitter sends radio wave signals to the receiver where the radio waves are converted into speech and amplified into audible sounds.

• The headset microphone will give the best overall results. The microphone is always close to the mouth - and will move with the head ensuring parallel contact with the voice. CLIP-ON CLOTHING MICROPHONE

• This microphone will pick up sound, however, the volume on the receiver has to be on a high level to attain acceptable sound.This means that use in a relatively small area will not be recommended - as there would be a feedback noise situation.

TRANSMITTER MICROPHONE The transmitter microphone simply fits into the transmitter. Careful placement of the transmitter (which can be attached with the neck straps) will be required as with the clothing microphone a high level of volume will be needed.

• Flexital from Kapitex gives you the power to communicate in a variety of environments

• An effective answer to the problem of weak or whisper voice

Headset microphone with adjustable volume control

Flexital features • Completely portable • Uses latest technology • Easy to use and effective amplifier • Project your voice with comfort and confidence • Can be used in large or small rooms • Headset microphone allows hands free use • Clip-on clothing microphone
