5000 Series

Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems

5000 Series Wireless Microphone Systems

Explore frequency-agile wireless systems from our Audio-Technica 5000 Series. Engineered for live-audio environments, these wireless receivers & transmitter microphones have a 144 MHz UHF tuning bandwidth, 16-channel frequency & True Diversity operation.


  • Dual-channel receiver provides 230 MHz UHF tuning bandwidth (DG1 470-700 MHz) for maximum versatility in an ever-congested RF environment
  • Antenna cascade output allows 8 receivers to be connected so that a single pair of antennas can feed up to 16 channels of wireless. These connectors also provide a simple RF cable check feature to aid in RF troubleshooting
  • Auto Squelch feature automatically adjusts squelch setting to maximize range while minimizing potential interference
  • Unique multifunction button on the handheld and body-pack transmitters can be used to switch to a backup frequency (on both transmitter and receiver) should interference be encountered
  • Dual Compander circuitry processes high and low frequencies separately for unmatched audio quality
  • The full-rack receiver chassis holds two independent receivers, and offers antenna power, frequency scan and IR sync functionality, a ground-lift switch, and a front-panel headphone jack
  • Dual-mode, highly visible OLED receiver screen can switch between standard view or a performance view that highlights key metering
  • Receiver is available with two balanced XLR outputs (ATW-R5220) or with two balanced XLR outputs and a Dante output (ATW-R5220DAN)
  • Both transmitters are available in two bands – DE1 (470–590 MHz) and EG1 (580–700 MHz) – and offer rugged, ergonomic metal bodies, highly visible OLED displays, programmable features, soft-touch controls, and switchable 2/10/50 mW RF power
  • Handheld transmitter features a high-pass filter and accepts six interchangeable microphone capsules (based on best-selling Audio-Technica models) that use industry-standard thread mount and provide low-handling noise
  • New rugged cH-style connector on body-pack transmitter provides a secure connection to lavalier mics, headworn mics, and cables with cH-style screw-down 4-pin connector
  • Advanced digital Tone Lock™ squelch effectively blocks stray RF; the digitally encoded tone also communicates transmitter data for receiver display
  • Wireless network monitoring and control software
  • 5000 Series components are offered individually – not as preconfigured systems – for greater flexibility
