Audio-Technica augments 3000 Series UHF wireless line with new ATW-T371 condenser microphone/transmitter.

ATW-3171a True Diversity Wireless System will include the new ATW-T371 handheld condenser microphone.


Leeds 09-10-2006 Following Audio-Technica’s recent enhancement of its 3000 Series UHF True Diversity Wireless Systems with the addition of automatic frequency scanning, the company is now offering the new ATW-T371 handheld cardioid condenser microphone/transmitter in its ATW-3171a system.

Incorporating Audio-Technica’s Artist Series ATM710 cardioid condenser element, the ATW-T371 wireless microphone is designed to be handheld or mounted on a microphone stand. Featuring rugged metal construction, soft-touch controls and a multi-function LCD display, the microphone is powered by two 1.5V AA batteries with a life of 6-8 hours. A dual power switch permits selection of high power for maximum range, or low for extended battery life.

The 3000 Series is a 200-channel frequency-agile UHF wireless system designed for a wide range of applications including live performance, touring, fixed installation, public address and worship. Its Automatic Frequency Scanning function automatically determines and sets the best available frequency (open channel) - useful when employing multiple wireless systems, thereby avoiding interference and intermodulation. Up to 16 simultaneous systems per frequency band are compatible, with a total maximum of 32 simultaneous systems across two bands.

The 3000 Series systems and components are available in two UHF frequency bands: 795.500 to 820.000 MHz and 840.125 to 864.875 MHz, with 200 selectable frequencies in each band. Soft-touch controls offer quick, easy access to the most important functions during set-up and operation. In addition, the 3000 Series features Audio-Technica’s digital Tone Lock® squelch, plus an easy-to-read LCD information display in each unit that provides convenient visual indications of settings and operation status.

With estimated availability during late September, the ATW-T371 will retail at £319.95 (inc VAT).
