  • Overview


    The Audio-Technica fourth-generation 3000 Series wireless systems give you the power and flexibility to operate within the congested UHF spectrum. 3000 Series systems have an operating range of 300' (100 m) and are available in two frequency bands – DE2 (470–530 MHz) and EE1 (530–590 MHz) – that provide a class-leading 60 MHz tuning range, which is more than twice that offered by the previous 3000 Series models. Frequencies can be easily scanned and selected on the receiver and then synced with the transmitter via IR sync functionality. The 3000 Series even lets you set a backup frequency that can be quickly swapped by pressing the transmitter's multifunction button in the event of unexpected interference.

    Available system configurations feature an ATW-R3210 receiver along with an ATW-T3201 body-pack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter. The ATW-T3201 is equipped with Audio-Technica's new rugged cH-style screw-down 4-pin connector for secure connection to A-T's cH-style lavalier and headworn microphones, or cables. The ATW-T3202 comes with either an ATW-C510 dynamic or ATW-C710 condenser interchangeable cardioid capsule, and its industry-standard thread allows for the use of four additional A-T capsules, plus other compatible capsules. Both transmitters feature rugged, metal housings and are powered by two AA batteries. Charging terminals on each transmitter work with the ATW-CHG3 and ATW-CHG3N smart charging docks (sold separately) to recharge NiMH batteries.


    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.

  • Q & A

    Will the new connector be available for purchase along with a wiring diagram for changing them out with the older Hirose?

    Tommy Tidbit

    Thank you for your inquiry. At some point it will, but not at this time.

    Rick

    Is there an online tool for choosing the best frequency band for a specific location?

    Alexander

    Thank you for your inquiry. not at this time. Please contact our Audio Solutions Team at 330-686-2600 ext. 5000. They would be happy to help you.

    Rick

    Our community theater has 6 freeway 700 receivers with belt packs. What handhelds can we get so we can use the receivers for handhelds as well. Also, we are using 6 of the 8 frequencies (1-6) What systems could we get to utilize the other two frequencies? We are in zip 29108 near Columbia, SC

    John

    Thank you for your inquiry. That system has been discontinued for some time and there are no transmitters available.

    Rick

    Is it possible to use the AE5400 microphone head with the 3000 series transmitter handle?

    soundman1402

    Yes it is. The ATW-C5400 is available to use with the ATW-T3210 transmitters. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/215f90af93c93ef0/index.html

    Brent

    Why oh why did you change the physical connector on the beltpack from the 3rd. Generation ATW-T310??? We have literally dozens of microphones with connectors for 3rd Generation ATW-T310 Unipak beltpacks? The change is utterly unnecessary and totally disastrous. Upgrading to 4th-generation 3000-series would be a simple "no brainer" for us if this wasn't true. Why? Please tell us why, you changed this. What benefit will we users get from this new connector style?

    https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-what-distinguishes-the-new-ch-style-wireless-connector-from-the-cw-style-connector/

    Brent

    I'm working on a proposal for a wireless mic pit for a marching ensemble. I was wondering who I would ask for quotes on buying these units and other Audio Technica products?

    Griffin

    You may contact your local Audio-Technica State Representative. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/features/6a7d826fd52a9da3/index.html

    Brent

    Should you be able to use the AMT350 series mics with this system?

    Zachary

    Yes, as the ATM350cW and the newer ATM350a models have a cW-style connector, you may use the AT-cWcH Adapter Cable. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/050e288317561b32/index.html

    Brent

    Like Jim from Ohio, we also have 14 D band systems to replace, and the availability of an adapter cable is crucial. Yes, with 12 other C band systems, we can use the old headworn and lapel mics as spares, but ... having the option of an adapter would go a long way to convince us to stay with AT, rather than another supplier. And, we need access to a frequency availability tool, like you used to have on the website, to help us select which band is our best choice in our area. (Is it hiding somewhere?)

    AV guy

    Thank you for your inquiry. There is an adapter cable, the AT-cWcH. We will have a new and greatly improved frequency tool, hopefully late this summer.

    Rick

    Will the old transmitters be compatible with the new receivers and vice versa?

    Kyle

    Thank you for your inquiry. Where the frequencies line up they will pass audio, but information such as the battery gauge and audio levels will not be available.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    We presently have three 2000 series systems in use in our fellowship hall that are in the 600 MHz band. We have a dozen 3000 series units in our sanctuary that are 500 MHz band. Is their compatibility between third and fourth generation? This would effectively give us some spares in an emergency. In other words will a fourth generation hand held work with a third gen receiver or a third gen handheld with a fourth gen receiver?

    Paul

    Thank you for your inquiry. The microphones in the EE1 band do have many frequencies in common with the C band. The microphones will pass audio although battery data and AF level is not passed.
