  • Q & A

    I purchased an ATM350cW - discontinued model - by mistake; I have no need or desire for a wireless system. Can I use that anyways to go directly into an amplifier or PA? Can I use this cable to go from the locking 4 pin xlr to a regular cable or directly into a PA? What about Phantom Power if I want to use an amplifier instead of PA? Sorry - you might be able to tell I am not particularly savvy with the technology. I am hoping to use this for my acoustic violin. Thanks, Brian Kenney

    Brian

    Yes you would be able to with the proper connection providing phantom power, MIC level input, etc. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for assistance with this.

    Will this work to run sound from a laptop though a DI to my wireless system?

    Lucas

    Yes, you may use the XLRW cable from an out of a DI box to send that signal to an Audio-Technica UniPak transmitter.

    Will this cable work to connect between AT835b (with AA batterey) and Pro10 system ATW-1301 and/or ATW-1311 Thank you for yoru time, I am looking forward to hear from you

    Daniel

    Yes this will work.

    I have a couple of old AT 853a microphone's that, I would like to connect straight into the Sound board, thus eliminating the battery pack. Is this the correct cable I need to do this?

    John the sound guy

    The power module must stay inline. You may use the AT8538 power module which has a smaller footprint. Additional information here: http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-week-can-remove-power-module-microphone/

    I have an Audix F-90 Microphone I would like to use this cable to plug in my Audix F-90 instrument mic into a wireless transmitter. Will this function properly? The Microphone does require phantom power. Thanks!

    Jackal49

    No this will not work. The XLRW adapter cable does not pass power from the transmitter to the microphone. Additionally, even if it did, the power supplied by our UniPak model bodypack transmitters is not phantom power, it is a smaller bias voltage. We do make a plug-on type transmitter however that does supply phatom power (12 V DC) directly through the 3-pin XLR input connector. The Audix F-90 specifies that phantom power ranging from 9 to 52V DC is required, so the ATW-T1802 Plug-on Transmitter is acceptable. Pair the T1802 with our ATW-R3100b Receiver for a complete wireless solution.

    Whcih AT microphones will work with this cable? I understand that in order to use this cable, the microphone needs to have on-board power. Since this is not called out in the features list for microphones, could you please provide a list of AT wired microphones which would work with this cable? Thanks.

    The XLRW is designed to connect Dynamic Microphones or "battery operated/powered" Condenser microphones to Audio-Technica UniPak® Bodypack Transmitters used with select Audio-Technica Wireless Systems. Given that information, there is a vast array of (Audio-Technica) microphones that the XLRW will work with (hundreds, if not thousands of microphones would make the list). Please visit www.audio-technica.com to view these dynamic microphones and battery-powered condenser microphones. Please keep in mind, since the XLRW does not pass phantom power or bias voltage, then any condenser microphone to be used with the XLRW will need to be battery-operated, such as the Audio-Technica MB4K. Also note that Dynamic Microphones do not require bias or phantom voltages, which makes dynamic microphones more readily compatible with the XLRW. Popular Dynamic microphones that could be used with the XLRW are the ATM510, AE6100, etc. If you have any further questions or for any correspondence, please include your original question and this response, and contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team at: audio-solutions@atus.com Thanks!

    Wiring How are the xlr pins connected to the HRS pins? Is the cable balanced or unbalanced? Does it work with Sennheiser MD-421 or MD-441 using the Audio Technica System 10 Bodypack?

    mkHH

    The XLRW is features an XLRF connector to locking 4-pin connector for use between a dynamic low-impedance microphone (or battery-operated condenser microphone) and A-T UniPak® body-pack wireless transmitter. 29.5" (0.75 m) cable. Therefore, if you would like to connect a Sennheiser MD421 or an MD441 (both are dynamic microphones) to a System 10 bodypack transmitter, you may do so using the XLRW. The XLRW will NOT work with ANY condenser microphone, UNLESS that condenser microphone will run off of a battery (such as the AT897). This is because the XLRW will NOT pass any from any source, including a transmitter. Thanks!

    ATW-T310 + XLRW Connecting Cable + MB 3k microphone? We own a ATW-T310 Transmitter with AT829cW Lavalier Microphone, and I recently bought the XLRW Connecting cable to connect a brand new MB 3K Vocal Microphone and it is not working! Can you tell me why? Switching back to the lapel mic it works, switching to the hand held Audio-technica MB 3k and it does not work. Please help!

    Kristofer

    Thank you for your inquiry. The MK 3K is a dynamic microphone which means it has very low sensitivity (volume). Try turning up the mic gain on the transmitter. This may help, but I cannot guarantee it will be loud enough.

    Do you make a cable that is the opposite of this one on both ends? I want to take a head worn mic that normally plugs into a Audio-technica transmitter and adapt it to a normal xlr male to plug into a mixer as a wired mic. Does such an adaptor exist? and would the mic work with phantom power?

    kent

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, we have the AT8539 power module that is designed to connect an A-T wirleless microphone that has a 4 pin Hirose connetor to a standard XLR input. The power module will convert the phantom power to the proper bias voltage required by the microphone.
