    Perfect for Any Occasion.


    I love this system. It's very versatile. I wish I could pair more than one mic, but that would be my only complaint...if I had one. The videos I added to my review were recorded on my Sony A7Sii with this microphone system, the hand-held mic, just out of frame. Except for the Opioid Addiction Conference.

    Great signals and awesome sound !


    I use the System 10 for my acoustic guitar , electric guitar as well as vocal mics and instrument mics . I use the System 10 for on stage use and for studio recording . I get clear signals with no cut-outs and awesome sound ! With a great price point ! Sincerely , Derek

    Link to video tests conducted by Fred Ginsburg CAS


    Here is the link to the YouTube video that I just posted with 3 of the walk tests that I did with the System 10 wireless. The unit achieves better than expected range; easily delivering the advertised 100 feet. On multiple occasions, I was getting 150 to over 200 feet. (View and hear the video at ) Again, bear in mind that these are low cost systems and not intended to compete against the high quality wireless that we use on major shoots. But for an inexpensive unit, they perform surprisingly well. I brought the system with me to the Cinema TV Arts Dept at California State University Northridge in order to shoot some more tests. CSUN has a soundstage for the film program that is approx 50 ft by 75 feet. Camera and the System 10 stayed in the rear corner, while I moved around the entire space. Even while hovering near a laptop and the lighting dimmer board -- the System 10 performed flawlessly. And, yes, there is WiFi in the stage. We went into the main corridor of the film/TV building (Manzanita Hall), which is dotted with electronic RFI emitters and WiFi routers (according to the department's Chief Video Engineer). The System 10 transmitted perfectly the entire length (approx 150 feet). Heading outside onto campus, on multiple tests we achieved 150 to 250 feet. Although we did encounter the occasional minor dropout on one or two of our footpaths, the unit was always reliable up to 125 feet; and depending on the pathway, sometimes good past 200 feet. I included one of those walk tests, where we made it 220 feet before the signal began to cut out. The aforementioned Video Engineer was curious about transmitting through walls, so I stayed inside the corridor while he went outside and roamed around the exterior of the building. Signal held up nicely passing through just one exterior wall, but did drop out when he turned (still outside the building) 90 degrees from the corridor and thus placed multiple interior rooms in our signal path.

    Clean, affordable wireless for filmmaking & presentation


    I recently acquired a System 10 camera-mount wireless and had a chance to run some tests on it. Audio is extremely clear and quite clean. The 2.4 GHz bands are away from TV UHF clutter; and the system appears to automatically seek out the cleanest freq's in that bandwidth. Even in a heavy RF environment, I had no interference issues. Working range is around 125 to 150 feet, line of sight, outdoors. At least, that was the walk tests that I did with the unit. (Around 75 paces). Indoors, I went from my kitchen (at the front of the house) all the way to the back door and then out into the yard as far as my yard extended, with no drop-outs. Pretty impressive for an inexpensive unit! Receiver is lightweight 4 ounces, so easy to mate with camera (even on SteadiCam). Very good for reality shows, since 3 or 4 of these hardly weigh anything! I found the trick to good audio is to pair it with a really good lav. I like the AT899cW, but the MT830cW is a good alternative and less pricey if you have to watch the dollars.I tested the unit both with the supplied stereo mini output cable and also my own 1/8 to XLR. Both worked fine. I do a lot of teaching (you have probably seen me at NAB and NAMM), and I like being able to just replace the podium mics with the receiver (using XLR output cable) and then wear the transmitter with a headworn mic so that I can move around and demo stuff. Since the receiver is internally powered, I do not have to worry about running AC to it. And being 2.4 GHz, the signal is clean even in an RF heavy convention center. Street price for the system is under $400. Add $170 for an AT899, or $100 for an MT830. And don't forget a 1/8 to XLRm cable. The receiver uses USB for charging or external power, so you can always plug in one of those USB external battery packs that run iPhones and such, if the internal battery runs low.

  • Q & A

    I have a Sony PXW-X70, is this microphone system compatible with my camera?


    You may contact your local Audio-Technica offices for further assistance.


    Specs say that the System 10 pairs with up to 8 transmitters, but one the reviews says "I wish I could pair with more than one mic." Please confirm that System 10 simultaneously pairs with multiple transmitters. Thank you.


    Yes it does.


    I just bought a system 10 ATW-1701/L (from a private seller, but supposedly never used.) I had the receiver plugged in to the included power transformer for over 12 hours. But when I push the power button, the rear blue light comes on and flashes the RX battery signal. I wonder if the battery is bad...but shouldn't the unit power up, anyway, since it's plugged in?


    I would return to the seller as there is an apparent issue with the product. You may also send the product into the Service Department for an evaluation. Please contact our Service Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5004 or at for assistance with this.


    Is it possible to reorder the camera mounting adapter for this product?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    My company is buying a Zoom Q8 camera and I am inquiring if it is compatible with this setup. We will be using the camera for filming training purposes, but also for presentations. Thank you


    You may plug the System 10 Camera-Mount receiver into a stereo MIC level input or a balanced MIC level input. You may check with your camera manufacture on the specifications of their product.


    Can I connect this system to my iPhone?


    Yes but a proper adapter would be needed as a 3.5mm connection on a smartphone is a communications port. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Will this work with a Sony A7Sii camera?


    You may plug into a MIC level stereo or mono input.


    Can I buy only transmitters seperately to add to one receiver?


    Yes, you may purchase additional transmitters which may be paired to a receiver.


    Hello, the antennas on my atw-r1700 receiver both failed prematurely. Do you have a replacement part number or thread spec for an alternate amtenna? Thank you!


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    Can this receiver be used with multiple mics/transmitters, as for interviews. (Assuming I buy a second mic/transmitter.) For example, with one mic/transmitter on the left channel, and one on the right channel?

    Dr. Matt

    Thank you for your inquiry. While you can pair multiple transmitters at a time to a single System 10 receiver, you may only use one transmitter at a time with the single receiver. If you need to use two mics at the same time for an interview setting you will need two receivers. You can stack two receivers on your camera using the AT8691 Camera Shoe Dual Mount:
