Stow, OH 05-17-2011 Donny and Marie’s headlining act at Las Vegas’ Flamingo Hotel recently celebrated its 500th show, and Audio-Technica, worldwide leader in high-performance microphones, wireless systems and headphones, is proud to be the microphone of choice for the show since its premiere.

Donny and Marie Osmond have been headlining at the Flamingo Hotel since September 2008, and the show has proved to be a huge success, with the duo set to continue their run through at least December 2011. Both performers use Audio-Technica's Artist Elite® 5000 Series UHF Wireless System with the AEW-T5400 Cardioid Condenser Handheld Transmitter, AEW-R5200 True Diversity Frequency-Agile Dual Receiver, the AEW-DA550C UHF Antenna Distribution System and the ATW-A49 UHF Wide-band Directional LPDA Antennas. Sax, trombone and trumpet are handled by the 3000 Series Wireless System with ATM350cW Cardioid Condenser Clip-On Microphone. Also used are the Artist Elite AE3000 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone for snare and the ATM450 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone for hi-hat, drum overheads and extra percussion overheads.

Donny Osmond stated, “We've received compliments from audience members about how clear our voices sound. Great mics are the key to that, and Audio-Technica delivers! Additionally, A-T's company support is the best. It's so nice to be part of the Audio-Technica family of artists."

“On the Donny and Marie Show we use A-T mics on almost everything, because these mics give us the big, rich sound we are looking for,” said Michael Martin, FOH Engineer for the show. “Technical support is excellent. The RF mics work every bit as well as, if not better than, mics from A-T's competition. Also, the M50 headphones are amazing.”
