    200 Series Freeway VHF Wireless Systems 4.5 5 2 2
    200 Series Handheld I just bought 3 of these mics for my Praise and Worship team and we have used them once and I enjoy the sound from them, now if I can just get them in that sweet spot so there are no drops I think all will be well. Overall I like the sound and the response from the mic as well as the housing of the mic itself(makes it more rugged). I just have to have a couple of questions answered and I think I will be golden. I also own several Shure mics and a couple of Sennheiser mics and the AT mics sound just as good. Good job guys. July 3, 2012
    This is an excellent buy and has great features! This wireless system is flawless and it a great buy for the money! I would highly recommend this system because it performs like none other. October 20, 2011

    Answer: 
    The nominal output of this receiver is 350 mV, which is approximately "consumer" line-level. It should work with the line input on any typical consumer equipment. Microphone level is much lower at about 2 mV.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. First, it is not real easy to get the peak light to illuminate. It takes a very high sound pressure level (SPL) to do so. Secondly, I believe that your Logitech System Z313 only has line level inputs (it's hard to determine from the documentation I found on the product, but most devices like this only have line level inputs). The output of the 200 series wireless system is microphone level and just not strong enough to drive a line level input. You may need to add a preamp to get this to work, but you should check with Logitech to ensure that the inputs are only line level.

    Hand Held T202 Mike

    Can I buy a replacement switch (off, standby, on) for this handheld mike? The switch works, but the "stalk" broke off and I need to use a pen to slide it into position.

    Two Recievers with the same frequency

    Purchased two 200 Series recievers with Lav Microphones. I have now noticed that they are both the same frequency (170.245). Both microphones now pick up off one reciever and it makes it difficult to manage the sound during our worship. Are there any work arounds to deal with the issue of both mics coming in on both recievers?

    Thanks,

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Chris you would simply have to take one of the mics back to where you purchased and explain to them what is going on and what you are experiencing, and if they are a reputable company and looking to keep your business in the future they will switch out for you for one with a different frequency.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. These can not be used at the same time. If these are new systems, you may want to check with your dealer about their return/swap policy. Otherwise, you will need to replace one of these.

    Answer: 
    The 200 series is not sold with any type of mount for an acoustis guitar. We do sell the AT8444 guitar mount that may be used with several of our lavalier microphones. This mount slides over the lower side of the sound hole.
