Audio-Technica Now Shipping High Density Spectrum-Efficient 6000 Series Wireless System

The main components from the Audio-Technica 6000 Series Wireless System. Shown are the ATW-R6200 receiver (bottom) and two ATW-T6001 body-pack transmitters

Audio-Technica, a provider of transducer technology for over 50 years, is now shipping its 6000 Series high density wireless system, a spectrum-efficient solution that allows users to pack 31 channels in 4MHz of bandwidth. 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 125KHz intervals and can all be used simultaneously. The system operates in the 944 - 952MHz 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-R6200 receiver, the ATW-T6001 body-pack 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; and a highly reliable new miniature input connector.
