The NAMM Show, Anaheim, California, January 25, 2018 — Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is now offering the ATW-T6002x Handheld Transmitter for the 6000 Series High Density Wireless System – a spectrum-efficient solution that allows users to pack 31 channels in 4 MHz of bandwidth.The ATW-T6002x handheld transmitter offers extremely low handling noise and features a metal construction body, high-visibility OLED screen, soft-touch controls and switchable RF power (2 mW/10 mW/50 mW). Its industry-standard thread mount allows for the use of six new interchangeable A-T microphone capsules, as well as other compatible capsules.
About the 6000 Series:
The 2016 FCC Incentive Auction has resulted in a repack of the broadcast spectrum, reducing the amount of spectrum available for wireless microphone operations and driving the need for spectrum-efficient technology to operate a high number of simultaneous channels in today’s market. To address this issue, Audio-Technica developed the 6000 Series, whose channels are spaced at 125 KHz intervals and can all be used simultaneously. The system operates in the 944-952 MHz band, which is free of broadcast TV. The FCC has expanded license eligibility for this band beyond broadcasters and content creators to include sound companies and venues that routinely operate 50 wireless microphones or more. The 6000 Series system consists of the following components: the ATW-R6200S receiver, the ATW-T6001S body-pack transmitter and new ATW-T6002x handheld transmitter, an optional ATW-DA410 antenna distribution system, and a number of compatible Audio-Technica lavalier and headworn microphones. Key features include high-performance filtering to remove external noise; clear, easy-to-read displays; transmitter frequency setup from receiver via IR sync; network monitor and control; durable, compact body-pack transmitter design with a highly reliable new miniature input connector.
Interchangeable Microphone Capsules:
- ATW-C510 cardioid dynamic microphone capsule (ATM510 equivalent)
- ATW-C710 cardioid condenser microphone capsule (ATM710 equivalent)
- ATW-C4100 cardioid dynamic microphone capsule (AE4100 equivalent)
- ATW-C6100 hypercardioid dynamic microphone capsule (AE6100 equivalent)
- ATW-C3300 cardioid condenser microphone capsule (AE3300 equivalent)
- ATW-C5400 cardioid condenser microphone capsule (AE5400 equivalent)

The NAMM Show, Anaheim, California, January 25, 2018 — Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is debuting the third generation of its 5000 Series Frequency-Agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems. Designed for use on professional tours, in stadiums, concert halls, festivals, houses of worship and other demanding audio environments, the Audio-Technica 5000 Series continues to provide incredible audio quality and proven, critically acclaimed performance for artists, broadcasters and presenters worldwide.
The new 5000 Series dual receiver offers the highest-quality wireless live sound, with A-T’s dual-compander circuitry that processes high and low frequencies separately and True Diversity operation. The receiver has been updated with a tuning bandwidth of 148 MHz: 470–608 MHz and 653–663 MHz (duplex gap), and users now have the option of selecting a standard receiver with two balanced XLR outputs (ATW-R5220) or a receiver that also includes a Dante output (ATW-R5220DAN). The full-rack receiver chassis holds two independent receivers and offers antenna power, frequency scan, IR sync functionality, a ground-lift switch, and a front-panel headphone jack.
Other new features include an antenna cascade output that connects up to eight receivers so a single pair of antennas can feed up to 16 channels of wireless (these connectors also provide an RF cable check feature to aid in RF troubleshooting), an auto squelch feature that automatically adjusts the squelch setting to maximize operating range while minimizing potential interference, and a backup frequency that can be quickly swapped by pressing the transmitter’s multifunction button in the event of unexpected interference. Software enables remote monitoring and control of the wireless system.
Two transmitters are available for use with the 5000 Series: the ATW-T5201 body-pack transmitter and the ATW-T5202 handheld transmitter. Both transmitters feature rugged, ergonomic metal bodies, highly visible dual-mode OLED screens (switchable between standard or performance views to highlight key metering), programmable features, soft-touch controls, and switchable RF power (2 mW/10 mW/50 mW). They are available in two different frequency ranges – DE1 (470–590 MHz) and EF2 (580–608 MHz, 653–663 MHz) – to provide complete coverage of the receiver’s bandwidth. The compact ATW-T5201 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-T5202 offers extremely low handling noise and includes a high-pass filter. Its industry-standard thread mount allows for the use of six interchangeable A-T microphone capsules, as well as other compatible capsules. The advanced digital Tone Lock™ squelch effectively blocks stray RF; the digitally encoded tone also communicates transmitter data for receiver display.
5000 Series components and compatible accessories are offered as individual, à la carte products to give users the greatest possible flexibility in constructing a system that fits their needs.
