Audio-Technica exhibited its fourth generation of its 3000 series frequency-agile true diversity wireless systems, providing easy setup, versatile operation and richly detailed high-fidelity sound with the flexibility to operate within the UHF spectrum.
With a 60MHz tuning range — more than twice that offered by the previous versions — the new 3000 series systems are available in two frequency bands; DE2 (470-530MHZ) and EE1 (530-590MHz), with a 300ft operating range. Frequencies can easily be scanned and selected on the receiver and then synced with the transmitter via IR sync functionality. The 3000 series lets users set a backup frequency that can be quickly swapped by pressing the transmitter’s malfunction button. A receiver audio squelch feature automatically adjusts the squelch setting to maximise operating range while minimising potential interference.
System configurations feature an ATW-R3210 receiver along with an ATW-T3201 bodypack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter. The ATW-T3201 is equipped with Audio-Technica’s new rugged cH-style screw down four-pin connector, accommodating AT’s cH-style lavalier and headworn microphones or cables. The ATW-T3202 comes with an interchangeable cardioid capsule — either an ATW-C510 dynamic or ATW-C710 condenser capsule, while industry-standard thread allow for the use of AT and other compatible capsules.
