  • Q & A

    Will this unit plug into and function on an ATW-T701 UHF Transmitter?

    Adolph

    No, but you may use the MT830cW with your UniPak transmitter. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/84ace41b7cfbd901/index.html

    ATUS_Specialist3

    What model has the 3.5mm plug?

    one dv guy

    No, the MT830R will terminate with a standard XLR connection. The MT830mW will terminate with a 3.5mm TS connection used for the PRO88W wireless system. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/f4b18b72699df8ad/index.html

    Will this work with audio-technica Model: ATW-T210aD? If not which model of lavalier microphone would, and which one would you recommend?

    What?

    You may use the MT830cW microphone with an Audio-Technica UniPak transmitter, such as the ATW-T210aD. You may find helpful information here: http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-which-wireless-microphones-will-work-with-an-audio-technica-wireless-system/

    ATUS_Specialist3

    Will this model or any comparable mic function with a receiver like the ones we use in the 2120 systems?

    Dave

    You may use any wireless microphone that ends in the code "cW" such as the MT830cW. http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-which-wireless-microphones-will-work-with-an-audio-technica-wireless-system/

    Is the mic clip supposed to be loose and spin on its axis, allowing mic to shift when wearer moves

    LarryB

    In most applications, the audio person attaching the mic uses a technique called the "broadcast loop" to secure the cable behind the mic to help keep it from moving and minimizing the transmission of mechanical noise up the cable.

    AudioSolutionsSpec2

    Yes. This is primarily due to the fact that the MT830 is an Omnidirectional Microphone.

    MT830c-TH with AT831b power module If I add an TA3F-type output connector to an MT830c-TH mic, would it then be electronically compatible with an AT831b power module? Would there be impedance or battery voltage problems?

    Lightimages

    Thank you for your inquiry. Each microphone is designed for use with a particular module. The usual power module used with the MT830 is the AT8538. Using the AT8531 the microphone will work, but I'm quite sure it will spec differently. Also, please note that I'm not sure if the MT830 will work with the AT8531 when using the battery and not phantom power.

    Is MT830cW-TH compatible with AT831b power module? I have 3 AT831b mics with power modules. (Great mics, btw) I would like to add 3 MT830cW-TH mics to use with my existing AT831b power modules. If these are compatible, is there a product number to order MT830cW-TH with 55"cable and TA3F connector?

    Lightimages

    Thank you for your inquiry. The MT830R has a TA3F connector, but is not sold without the power module (AT8538). The MT830cW has a 4 pin Hirose connector and is made to connect to a wireless system. We do not offer a version with a TA3F connector or adapter. The MT830c has no connector and the customer can wire it with a TA3F connector.
