    Audio-Technica’s second-generation 2000 Series is a 10-channel frequency-agile UHF wireless system designed to suit a variety of applications, including MI/live performance, fixed installation, public address, A/V rental houses and places of worship. It offers all the advantages of a high-quality, professional wireless system at an extremely affordable price. New professional features include two available frequency bands and switchable antenna power.

          Comments about Audio-Technica 2000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems:

          There are not really any systems that can complete with the 2000 Series at its price point. I have installed over 500 of these systems and component failure has to be less than 1%. The biggest cause of repairs is users dropping the units. My clients love the sound quality, reliability, and styling. The charging stations are also a huge plus that my customers have always desired.
          My only gripe is the power switch design on the handheld. I long for a tactile style(aka 3000 series) or at least one you can operated without having to turning the unit upside down. That small issue kept me from giving the 2000 Series an otherwise perfect score.

              Great mic for a cheap price.

              I bought the ATW2120 and I'm very pleased with the sound quality of this mic. I used a few weeks ago in a seminar to over 1000 people and it worked perfectly, the battery lasted for more than 8 hours.

                      We bought 4 of these for our gospel group in December 2010 and by far, the best money we have ever spent! The sound is awesome and clear as a bell. No more cords to step over and battery life is really good! I would like to see a better housing instead of the plastic, but over-all it was good money for the investment.

                          Unfortunately, there is not. However, you can buy the ATW-RMS1 which is a mute switch that can be connected to the body pack transmitter.

                        We're getting a loud popping noise, almost like mic handling noise, with our ATW-T210. It's not constant, but several times during a sermon or presentation.

                          Frequency availability is different for every geographical area. To determine how many frequencies you can operate on in your area, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team at:

                          Please be certain to include the zip code where these will be operated, and how many frequencies you'd like to operate simultaneously.

                        I have 3 2120 systems. 2 are I band and 1 is D band. They are about 5 years old and are used in a school setting. They are stored in their original box and have not been dropped or damaged in any way that I am aware of. The D band microphone works well and has been a real workhorse. The 2 I band microphones are not as dependable. They are sending a strong RF signal to the receiver but the AF signal shows no signal coming from the transmitter to the receiver and nothing is coming through the microphone. One mic has not been working on a consistent basis since it was 2 years old and the other one started not working today, showing the same problems. The mics and receivers are tuned to the same frequency (each their own) so that is not the problem. I can't seem to figure it out.

                        Is the 2000 Series scan limited to the 10 channel presets, or does it scan the entire frequency range and set 10 clear channels? I want to use 8 systems simultaneously, but if the 10 channels are presets only I'm concerned they won't all necessarily be clear channels.

                      • Q:

                        Just received two new 2000 series wireless handhelds. It has receiver model ATW-R2100a. Plan on using it with a church PA system. The open XLR microphone ports of the PA has phantom power on pins 2 & 3 of approximately 15v DC. If I plug the XLR connector (at mic level)of the receiver into a mic input of the PA system, will it affect the receiver? Have known that this can cause damage to some mixer outputs, just was wondering if it is also true for the mic level output of the wireless microphone receiver?
