  • Overview


    Audio-Technica’s third-generation 3000 Series wireless systems offer up to 1001 selectable UHF frequencies and new features for clear sound & intuitive operation. We’ve simplified selection of usable frequencies, increased system reliability, and illuminated transmitter screens for clear reads on dark stages. It all adds up to the luxury of rock-solid, richly detailed high-fidelity sound.

    The versatile ATW-T310b UniPak® body-pack transmitter features a secure 4-pin locking connector compatible with a wide range of microphones, as well as a guitar cable. A 3-position sliding cover on the transmitter’s control panel prevents accidental shut-off or channel-switching. A new locking battery compartment provides a more secure latch and more robust design.

    The 3000 Series is available with either a dynamic or condenser handheld transmitter featuring rugged metal construction and slim ergonomic design. The ATW-T341b handheld transmitter includes the stage-proven Artist Elite® AE4100 cardioid dynamic element, and the ATW-T371b handheld transmitter features the studio-quality Artist Series ATM710 cardioid condenser element.

    3000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems 5 5 8 8
    Great set of features, sound quality, and value Purchased set of six hand-held systems for support of an a cappella chorus. Love them! The chorus immediately noted an increase in sound quality over our previous systems. I love the clear readout of channel, AF and RF strength, etc. -- especially the remote battery monitor. That's saved our bacon during performances! Good noise-free handling characteristics. November 11, 2011
    This product is excellent I purchased this wireless handheld for live vocal applications. The audio quality is great, excellent gain with no feedback issues, no interference. What else can I say, I'm very pleased with this microphone October 27, 2011
    This mic sounds great! I bought the ATW3141b couple months ago and I'm using at my church. I love the sound quality and the battery meter on the receiver and transmitter. October 27, 2011
    Great versatility and clean power! We run 10 of these 3000 Series systems with great fun and success! They are powerful clean and have a great roaming range! We never have a problem with them cutting out or interference. The auto scan is fabulous and I rarely have to use squelch. We use them with 4 DPA vocal headsets, Violin, Viola, Bodrans, Taps...ect. October 25, 2011
    Awesome wireless!!! I put this wireless in my mesa bass rig and it has performed flawlessly. I was looking at another manufacturer and a friend suggested this one. It was less expensive than the one I was looking at and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have used it indoors and outdoors with absolutely no issues. I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone wanting to go wireless. October 25, 2011
    Great product, even better investment Having used AT3K systems extensively, both lav and handhelds, they get two thumbs up. We use them primarily with praise and worship teams, but also for spoken word with regional and national speakers. I'm a fan of the 831 uni lavs for sound quality, the beltpacks are extremely durable, have never had interference problems with 10+ freqs in use at a time. I love the protective inserts to keep stray hands from the bodypack controls! The handhelds work well for vocals, effective pattern control for our uses. My only concern - the 'mute' on the handheld transmitters can be inadvertently activated by nervous tapping fingers - I'd love to see a 'lockout' on these. Five stars from me - we'll keep on spec'ing them and using them. Thanks AT! October 21, 2011
    Best wireless system I have ever used. The 3000 series microphones are really great. I have used mine for many applications -- a rock band, a worship band, in an acoustic setting, for spoken word, and even in a pinch for recording. The set-up of the system is exceptionally simple. The use of the microphone power/stand-by switch is very intuitive and the battery life has been very good as well. The sound quality I have found to be exceptional, even in very soft settings. The gain settings make it very easy to adapt to any live situation. October 20, 2011
    Outstanding Wireless System While there are better AT Wireless systems, the 3000 series gives outstanding results for use in meeting, convnetions and special events. I have used the 3000 series for vocalists in bands that perform at our events with no complaints and excellent sound reproduction. We own 8 systems and have never had a problem either with cross talk or interferience. We have had minor hits when the batteries are low and need to be replaced. We have never had to change frequencies because of interference. October 20, 2011

    Answer: 
    I realize this question is old, but thought I would add my $0.02 anyway. Yes you can use rechargeable batteries, and I highly recommend it! After being frustrated over poor performance with Duracell Coppertop batteries, I switched to Energizer NiMH and haven't looked back. The batteries last up to an astonishing 11.5 hours in low power mode and the cost of a 16-bay charger and 32 rechargeable batteries paid for itself after only a week or two of not buying alkalines. If you live in the USA, you should also consider Eneloop NiMH batteries which are extremely popular.

    As usual, make sure you use a matching set of batteries. I suggest you avoid timer-based and/or fast chargers. Use a "smart" charger designed for NiMH batteries, and if it takes a long time to charge, that's a good thing as fast charging shortens their lifespan.

    Answer: 
    Yes!!!! And it is soooo....the way to go. We have used the same Duracell rechargeables for over a year now gigging every weekend. They last for about 3 or 4 hours depending on how far you go from the receiver and the outside temp. Just be careful to have some regular batteries on hand for emergencies and your cold outdoor gigs. We charge our NiH batteries over night before every show with fantastic results!

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. We have always recommended alkaline batteries for our wireless systems primarily because of battery life and expense. Rechargeable batteries have come a long way and offer much longer life than those of the past, although you may have to spend a good deal of money for a good rechargeable system. We have many customers that use rechargeable batteries with success. Please note that rechargeable batteries may vary in size and battery post length, so you will have to keep an eye on that. Also, we have no way to determine the life you will get out of a rechargeable battery. Not all rechargeable batteries charge to the same level and every time it is recycled it will lose some if it's life. If you are going to use rechargeable batteries we suggest a good quality nickel metal hydride battery. Please note that we have a lot of information on our FAQ page on our web site about batteries and I highly recommend reading this information before investing in a rechargeable system. (Link below).

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. You can use up to 16 systems per frequency band (there are 3 frequency bands) provided you are completely free of broadcast TV stations in that band, as well as other possible interference. Please note all frequencies must be properly coordinated to ensure they are compatible.

    At church we already have one 3000 series with a wireless handheld mike. Working fine. However, we want to buy a wireless headset (AT892cWTH) for the speaker. Our question is, do we need to buy a second 3000 series or both mikes can be used at the same time on the one we already have?

    Answer: 
    You need a separate receiver and the microphones must be on separate frequencies. Also, you can't (shouldn't) just pick any frequency - you must pick them from the same "group". See the user's manual for more detail about choosing a frequency.

    Answer: 
    You need to buy a second system (microphone, bodypack transmitter and receiver) and it needs to be set to a frequency that is different from your current system. It is not possible to operate more than one microphone/transmitter on the same frequency at the same time in the same location.

    Answer: 
    All Audio-Technica wireless systems are mono devices, and will therefore send a mono signal. Additionally, a vast majority of microphones in the market, not limited to Audio-Technica products, are indeed mono. This is very common in the audio industry.

    If your recorder features a 3.5mm (a.k.a. 1/8th inch) stereo input, then the following cable will likely work for you.
    - Hosa CMP103, or CMP105, or CMP110 (all are different lengths)

    If your recorder features dual-mono 1/4" inputs, then you will likely need to complete the following:
    - Set the "panning" dead center, for equal distribution of the mono signal over the left and right channels.
    - OR, purchase the Hosa CYP103.

    If your recorder features dual-mono XLR inputs, then you will likely need to complete the following:
    - (Again) Set the "panning" dead center, for equal distribution of the mono signal over the left and right channels.
    - OR, purchase the Pro Co YMXF2XM1.

    PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that it is better to split a mono signal to stereo, than to go from stereo into mono. "Summing" a stereo signal into a mono signal will result in adverse effects, including damage to your audio equipment.

    If you have any further questions on how to properly complete your setup, please contact the Audio-Technica Audio Solutions team at audio-solutions@atus.com, and list specific products that you are using and what you are attempting to accomplish.

    Thanks!

    We have some of these deployed and we were noticing some RF signal drop out on one of our wireless microphones. The receivers do not change the displayed frequency, so I'm thinking these are not truly frequency agile.

    As we'll need to troubleshoot the problem, I'd like to know if there is actually dynamic frequency changing or not.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Frequency Agile means that the system does not have a single, fixed frequency, but instead has multiple frequencies that a user may choose from. Drop outs are quite frequently caused by radio frequency interference (RFI). Usually this is due to broadcast TV channels in your area. You will need to use frequencies between these TV channels. Also, RFI can be cause by digital equipment in close proximity (such as digital effect units, CD/DVD players, computers and so on). Keep your receivers at least 3 feet away from these devices. When using multiple wireless systems, you must use frequencies that are compatible with each other. Consult the chart in your user’s manual, or better still use the scan function of the receivers, using the same scan group for all receivers. Finally, make sure that you maintain a clean line of site between the receivers and the transmitters.
