The Lectrosonics SSM is a Digital Hybrid Wireless® miniature belt-pack transmitter that is ideal in theater or any other production where concealment in costuming is required. Despite its tiny size, the transmitter offers an extensive feature set (and performance) on par with all of the Digital Hybrid Wireless® models.

Digital Hybrid Wireless™ is a design that combines 24-bit digital audio with an analog FM radio link to provide outstanding audio quality and the extended operating range of the best analog wireless systems. Digital Hybrid Wireless™ overcomes channel noise in a dramatic way, digitally encoding the audio bitstream in the transmitter and decoding it in the receiver, yet sending the encoded information via an analog FM wireless link. This proprietary DSP algorithm eliminates a compandor circuit and its artifacts, and preserves the RF spectral footprint of analog FM designs to simplify multi-channel coordination with existing analog wireless systems.

Frequencies are selectable in 100 kHz or 25 kHz steps across a maximum tuning range of 76.7 MHz, which yields a total of 3,072 available frequencies across three standard frequency blocks. The servo bias input accepts mic or line level signals with a wide range of gain adjustment in 1 dB steps. The limiter in the preamp can cleanly handle signal peaks over 30 dB above full modulation, allowing the input gain to be set high enough to achieve the maximum signal to noise ratio, yet provide protection against input overload. Accurate LED indications on the keypad allow precise gain adjustments to be made for the maximum signal-to-noise ratio and minimum distortion.

Compatibility with earlier analog Lectrosonics receivers, Lectrosonics IFB receivers and some receivers from other manufacturers is provided by DSP emulation modes selected in the LCD menu.
