          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.

                      • Q:

                        I'm incharge of buying my school more microphones for one of our upcoming productions. We currently have 3 of the D styles but I can not figure out what the difference is between the "D" style and "I" style besides a higher MHz range on the "D" style. What does the range difference with the MHz mean? Also is there any other deference's between the "D" and the "I"?
                        Thanks.

                          A:

                          The 2000 Series is divided into 3 separate bands, operating in different frequencies. The wireless systems are the same, other than the frequencies it will operate on. We have three bands to allow the maximum number of wireless systems that can be used. For example, if you need 10 wireless mics, but live in an area where you can only get a maximum of 5 in one band, you can get your other 5 systems from another band.

                          D-Band operates in the mid 600 MHz range, while I-Band operates in the 480-502 MHz range.

                          A:

                          A standard 1/4''-3.5mm connector would do the trick. Make certain your computer has a designated Mic level input. If your computer has a combo, jack, this wouldn't work.

                          A:

                          Thank you for your inquiry. That depends on several factors such as if the input is a combo or dedicated mic input and which output you are using from the 2000 series (XKL or 1/4I). Please contact the Audio Solutions team at 330-686-2600 ext. 5000. They will be happy to help with this.

                      • Q:

                        Two questions about the 2000 series:

                        1. Is the ATW-R2100a receiver (Band D) compatible with the AEW-DA660D Antenna Distribution System?

                        2. Is it possible to configure a system that uses both 2000 series equipment AND 4000 series equipment? I understand that frequency assignments would have to be done manually and quite carefully.

                          The 2000 Series (D-Band) will work with the AEW-DA660D! It is also possible to configure all of your wireless systems to work together! Please contact us directly at Audio-Solutions@atus.com so we can assist with your specific case!

                          Yes you can! You are looking for the ATW-T210a in whichever band you have. For exapmle, if you have a D-band 2000 Series, you would need to get the ATW-T210aD. For further help, please contact the Audio-Solutions department at Audio-Solutions@atus.com

                      • Q:

                        does the handheld mic for the 2000 series ever come in a white finish?
                        or is there a way we can paint it white without damaging the mic?

                          If connecting a 2000 Series receiver to a Windows PC, you would need an XLR to 3.5mm TRS cable. If you are connecting to a Mac computer, you would need a mono 1/4" to 3.5mm TRS cable. In any case, you would need to configure the sound properties in your computer for proper operation.
