    CONSUMER ALERT
    Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

    Awesome Sounding mic!

    I love this microphone. It is simple and easy to use anywhere. It also has amazing tone for vocal performance. I have been incorporating this mic more and more into live performances.

    Best Investment for Your Hard Earned Cash

    There are not really any systems that can complete with the 2000 Series at its price point. I have installed over 500 of these systems and component failure has to be less than 1%. The biggest cause of repairs is users dropping the units. My clients love the sound quality, reliability, and styling. The charging stations are also a huge plus that my customers have always desired. My only gripe is the power switch design on the handheld. I long for a tactile style(aka 3000 series) or at least one you can operated without having to turning the unit upside down. That small issue kept me from giving the 2000 Series an otherwise perfect score.

    Awsome mic!

    Great mic for a cheap price. I bought the ATW2120 and I'm very pleased with the sound quality of this mic. I used a few weeks ago in a seminar to over 1000 people and it worked perfectly, the battery lasted for more than 8 hours.

    Framingham, MA, USA

    This is the best

    I have had AT products in the past, and this one is awesome. The quality of this microphone is great, it is balanced and dynamic for vocals and for spoken words, The sensitivity of the mic is perfect for all uses, I use it as an area mic, or solo's. this is a true multifacited microphone. i recommend this mic for any application.

    You will not be disappointed!

    We bought 4 of these for our gospel group in December 2010 and by far, the best money we have ever spent! The sound is awesome and clear as a bell. No more cords to step over and battery life is really good! I would like to see a better housing instead of the plastic, but over-all it was good money for the investment.

  • Q & A

    is the frequency this unit uses being restricted by FCC? if so what time before i can not use. What are my options ?? Such as replacement with new unit . What would be my costs. Thank you RB

    RB

    The 2000 Series was available in two different frequency bands and one of them, the D Band does operate in the mid 600 MHz range which is included in the recently auctioned off spectrum. You may find helpful information on the FCC's recent auction of the 600 MHz frequency range including our rebate program here: http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-week-story-behind-600-mhz-incentive-auction-will-600-mhz-wireless-microphone-system-eventually-unusable/ http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/16505e589e0be6c8/index.html https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-which-wireless-systems-do-you-recommend-as-replacements-for-600-mhz-equipment/

    Brent

    I have a 2000 wireless w/the mic. There is a 4pin input on the transmitter,is there an adaptor for quarter inch guitar plug in?

    Nik

    Thank you for your inquiry. Below you will find the models of the guitar cables to use with this wireless system: AT-GcW AT-GRcW AT-GcW PRO AT-GRcW PRO

    Kaylee

    Have atw t210a if transmitter. What is the "INST" scew?

    Charles

    INST is the abbreviation for instrument. There are separate input level controls for a microphone and for an instrument due the impedance differences between the two.

    sshaw

    Is my ATW-T220 MIC COMPATIBLE WITH ALL RECIEVERS

    Bobbi

    Thank you for your inquiry. No, it will only work with the ATW-R2100 in like frequency band.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Can I configure two (2) ATW R2100a (transmitter) sending to one (1) Sennheiser EK 300 IEM G3 (receiver) and make a stereo mix? Thanks!

    Félix

    Thank you for your inquiry. No, this will not work.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    I have eight 2000 series transmitter and receiver pairs in the D band. Is it possible to get these changed to the I band?

    Bruce

    There is no "re-crystal" option for this A-T wireless system. Our wireless are either crystal controlled (single frequency wireless) or frequency agile (phase locked loop multiple frequency capable wireless) designed to operate within a specific frequency spectrum. The RF spectrum capability of the wireless is determined by frequency specific components. Our crystal controlled wireless could be frequency changed within the band they were designed to operate in, but it is not possible to change either crystal controlled or frequency agile wireless out of the spectrum band they were designed to operate within. You may find helpful information on the FCC's recent auction of the 600 MHz frequency range and Audio-Technica's current state and what our intended actions will be here: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/16505e589e0be6c8/index.html

    I have 2 atw2100 series receivers. Can I tune both of them to the same frequency and use it with one transmitter? Will this cause any problems?

    Rhawn

    Yes, you may use two receivers on the same channel to pickup one transmitter. This is the same as a radio station: the radio is a single transmitter and any number of receivers can tune into that channel and pickup the audio.

    ATUS_Specialist3

    I have an ATW-T220a mic. It has started "cutting out" when sound is applied to the mic(such as speaking or singing). What could be the cause and is there any adjustments I can make to correct this?

    Jason

    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for assistance with this.

    ATUS_Specialist3

    Can I use a second microphone on my 2000 series?

    Laurie

    With any and all wireless systems, the rule is one transmitter per receiver at a time. This means that you will need the same number of receivers as you want to have microphones operating simultaneously. Some systems on the market that are sold as multiple microphone transmitters and a single case receiver are actually multiple receivers built into a single casing, similar to the System 10 PRO. Depending on your RF environment, you may be able to use multiple 2000 Series entire systems simultaneously. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for additional assistance with this.

    ATUS_Specialist3

    Will I be able to use the atw 2000 series microphones with a frequency of 600 MHZ once the 600 MHz FCC auction is complete?

    stonecrest

    Yes. Stage 4 is complete but the auction itself is far from complete. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for assistance with this.
