    Fantastic Lecturn Microphone


    This microphone in conjunction with a Series 3000 Gen 3 beltpack (or 3000 Gen4 with adapter cable) is perfect for use as a wireless microphone on a lectern for public address events. The sound quality and sensitivity is excellent, and is fairly resistant to feedback due to its cardioid pickup pattern. The microphone also looks much better on a lectern than a standard gooseneck and 3000 series wireless hand mic. The only drawback is that it could use a better windscreen to block the "P" pops from users who insist on leaning into the microphone to speak.

  • Q & A

    What wireless recevier from at does this product work with. I will need 4 channels for 4 wireless gooseneck mics (U857ALcW Cardioid Condenser Gooseneck Microphone)


    Thank you for your inquiry. This will work with the System 9, System 10, 2000 series, 3000 series, 4000 series and 5000 series using a belt pack transmitter.


    Does the aewt100d or atw-t310 have phantom power I want to purchase an Audio-Technica U857ALCW Gooseneck mic. I want to connect this to a wireless belt pack AEWT1000-D or atw-t310. The U857ALCW Gooseneck mic documentation states "UniPak wireless transmitter provides Phantom power." But I do not see that the aewt1000-d or atw-t310 has phantom power, but they are a "UniPak". So I am confused if the aewt1000-d or atw-t310 has phantom power or not?


    Either model Transmitter provides bias voltage to power the microphone. The wireless U857ALcW, which is a variation of the wired U857AL, has been specifically designed to operate off the smaller bias voltages provided by our UniPak model bodypack transmitters rather than phantom power like the wired version. The U857ALcW may be used with the ATW-T310 (3000 Series), the AEW-T1000 (4 and 5000 Series) and other UniPak model wireless bodypack Transmitters.
