  • Q & A

    can this be used with a system 10

    rosie

    Thank you for your inquiry. No this specific model is unterminated, and will not have a connector to plug into the System 10 transmitter. The model that will connect to a System 10 body-pack transmitter is the AT831cW: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/a3ecb0c7a78d7099/index.html

    I want to connect an AT-831 to a Sennheiser Evolution G3 wireless beltpack. Is 831c the right model for this application? Do I simply terminate it with a 3.5mm stereo plug?

    Matt

    Thank you for your inquiry. No, there are additional components needed. We do not sell a version of this microphone fro Sennheiser wireless systems.

    Can i use this mic with an older model transmitter ive got the system 8

    Nick

    No. You will need the AT831cW. You may use any wireless microphone that ends in the code "cW" which indicates the cable properly terminates with the 4 pin HRS connection used on your Audio-Technica UniPak transmitter.

    Will this work on a ATW-T701 UHF Transmitter. Used originally for an instrument. Need a mic for the pastor.

    Adolph

    No, but you may use the AT831cW for your 700 Series UniPak transmitter. You may use any wireless microphone that ends in the code "cW" which indicates the cable properly terminates with the 4 pin HRS connection used on your Audio-Technica UniPak transmitter.

    Hi, can i attach a 3.5 mm plug to the wire and run it with a wireless transmitter there has a 3.5mm socket with phantom power? will 5v of power also be enough to get it to work. Kind Regards

    Zeplin

    You will need to use the AT831cW microphone with the AT UniPak transmitter.

    I love my AT-831 and it's over 30 years old. I need to find the clip for the mic body. Mine has broken. Can I order one? It is the clip behind the on and off switch that looks like it clips onto a belt. Thanks,

    How do you connect this mic to a standard 3-pin XLR connector It appears that the shield connects to pin 1, the yellow wires are twisted together and connect to pin 2, and the red wires are twisted together and connect to pin3. Is this correct?

    You cannot do this. To do so will destroy the microphone. In a hard-wired application, an inline power module must be used between the microphone and the audio interface. One of the power modules functions is to buffer, or step-down, phantom power. The microphone capsule requires only a low bias voltage of about 3 V DC to operate. Sending 12, 24 or 48 volts of phantom power directly to it will destroy it. The AT831 is made in several versions including a phantom powered only version, a phantom OR battery powered version, and a bias powered version where the bias voltage is supplied by a wireless systems bodypack transmitter. If you are connecting the microphone to an XLR microphone input with phantom power on it, you may want to exchange your AT831c for the AT831R. Otherwise you will need to add the AT8538 Power Module to your microphone. To permit the connection of the the power module, a TA3F connector will need to be added to your microphones cable. The connector is available for purchase from our Parts Department.

    I believe you are referring to the AT8116 Windscreen which can been seen at the following link. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/windscreens_mounts/144dadcedfeccb92/index.html

    What is the difference between the at831b and at831c? What is the difference between the at831b and at831c? Is it that the mic is the same and different things come with it or are they two different mics?

    Samuel

    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT831C is unterminated. It has only bare wire with no connector or power module. The AT831b has the AT8531 power module and is ready to connect to an audio system.

    Are there any microphones like the AT803 or similar (good for recording in a lecture type environment) that will work with an iPhone 4S

    MALMAL

    Thank you for your inquiry. All of our microphones will need an adapter to work with an iPhone. KV Connection makes several adapters.
