    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. Also new to the 2000 Series, the optional ATW-CHG2 two-bay recharging station provides power to recharge NiMH batteries in two ATW-T220a handheld transmitters and/or ATW-T210a UniPak® transmitters in any combination.

At the touch of a button, this function automatically determines and sets the best available frequency. Any of the 2000 Series’ 10 channels may be used together without any frequency coordination problems or group selection issues.

    Best Investment for Your Hard Earned Cash 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. December 13, 2011
    Awsome mic! 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. October 27, 2011
    You will not be disappointed! 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. October 20, 2011
    This is the best I have had AT products in the past, and this one is awesome. The quality of this microphone is great, it is balanced and dynamic for vocals and for spoken words, The sensitivity of the mic is perfect for all uses, I use it as an area mic, or solo's. this is a true multifacited microphone. i recommend this mic for any application.

    Dropouts

    I recently purchased the handheld mic (2000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems) for our school and we are having serious dropout issues. Can you assist in reducing these? The reviews have been great regarding dropouts so I was surprised to have so many.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Typically speaking, wireless use is limited according to the area you chose to operate, other simultaneous wireless transmissions, and whether there is a clear line-of-sight between the transmitter and corresponding receiver.

    In regards to area of operation, digital TV broadcasts take precedence over wireless microphone transmission.

    To answer this inquiry more effectively, could you please contact the Audio-Solutions department at Audio-Technica? Upon your email, I will do a frequency scan of your area by your providing either a zip-code or address. By address is more accurate. The email address is as follows:

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. You did not mention how this would be used in the marching band. Whether on an instrument solo, a vocal part and so on. We have many marching bands that use our wireless systems during a performance. Please note the receiver must be connected to a power source. It is not battery operated like the transmitter.
