Audio-Technica Now Shipping New System 10 PRO Rack-Mount Digital Wireless System Configurations

The Audio-Technica ATW-1366 System 10 PRO rack-mount digital wireless system with two boundary microphones/transmitters

Audio-Technica, an innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is now shipping two new packaged configurations of its popular System 10 PRO rack-mount digital wireless system: ATW-1366 System 10 PRO rack-mount digital wireless system with boundary microphone/transmitter and ATW-1377 System 10 PRO rack-mount digital wireless system with microphone desk stand transmitter. Previously, the ATW-T1006 System 10 boundary microphone/transmitter and ATW-T1007 System 10 microphone desk stand transmitter were available as individual components, as integrators/contractors generally source these pieces separately to configure a system to spec. To simplify the ordering process, Audio-Technica has decided to offer the transmitters and receivers together as turnkey packages.

The ATW-1366 configuration includes ATW-RC13 Rack-mount receiver chassis, two ATW-RU13 receiver units and two ATW-T1006 System 10 boundary microphones/transmitters. The ATW-1377 configuration includes ATW-RC13 rack-mount receiver chassis, two ATW-RU13 receiver units and two ATW-T1007 System 10 microphone desk stand transmitters.

Gary Boss, marketing director, professional markets, Audio-Technica US, Inc., stated, "When we originally introduced the ATW-T1006 and ATW-T1007 transmitters, we anticipated that they would be used primarily by dedicated installers and integrators who are used to buying component-based wireless solutions. After launch we saw an increase in requests from DIY users and customers who prefer the convenience and trouble-free option of ordering complete packaged systems ready to go out of the box."

Designed to work with phantom-powered, condenser gooseneck microphones with a three-pin XLRM-type output, the ATW-T1007 System 10 microphone desk stand transmitter pairs with the System 10 PRO or System 10 digital wireless receiver of the user's choice to provide rock-solid, 2.4GHz wireless performance. The transmitter is equipped with a three-pin XLRF-type input, and features a touch-sensitive user switch that can toggle between talk and mute modes, or function as a press-to-talk or press-to-mute button. Two red/green LEDs -- one visible from the front of the unit, the other from the rear -- indicate toggle/talk/mute mode, battery level, and charging status. The ATW-T1007 offers three levels of input gain (-6dB, 0dB, and +6dB), which can be selected via a switch on the bottom of the unit. Another switch engages the low-cut filter.

A perfect fit for conference rooms and other meeting spaces, the ATW-T1006 System 10 boundary microphone/transmitter likewise pairs with any System 10 PRO or System 10 digital wireless receiver to provide clear, natural sound quality with reliable 2.4GHz wireless performance. This cardioid condenser boundary mic is also equipped with a touch-sensitive user switch that can toggle between talk and mute modes, or function as a press-to-talk or press-to-mute button. Two red/green LEDs -- one visible from the front of the unit, the other from the rear -- indicate toggle/talk/mute mode, battery level, and charging status. The mic also offers three levels of input gain (-6dB, 0dB, and +6dB) and the low-cut filter switch.

ATW-T1007 and ATW-T1006 features:
* Digital 24-bit/48kHz wireless operation for ultimate sound quality and dependable performance
* Operates in the 2.4GHz range -- completely free from TV interference
* Gain control switch allows selection of three input gain levels: -6dB (for loudest voices), 0dB, and +6dB (for softest voices)
* Two red/green LEDs -- one visible from the front of the unit, the other from the rear -- indicate toggle/talk/mute mode, battery level, and charging status
* For both units, a 3.7V rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides nine hours of use on a full charge and is easily recharged with the included USB charging cable.
* User switch can be set to toggle between talk and mute modes, or function as a press-to-talk or press-to-mute button
* Switchable low-cut filter
* System ID Display located on bottom of unit

Like all System 10 models, the System 10 PRO rack-mount operates in the 2.4GHz range, keeping it free not only from TV interference but also from the uncertain regulatory future facing the TV bands. Its durable rack-mount chassis houses one or two receiver units that can be operated locally within the chassis or be removed and mounted remotely (up to 300' away) via Ethernet cable. This approach to delivering wireless increases the versatility of the system while also greatly enhancing wave propagation -- without the substantial expense of adding an antenna distributor and corresponding cables. Additionally, up to five System 10 PRO chassis (10 receivers) can be linked together using the RJ12 cable included with each system, creating a stable multichannel system with the simultaneous use of up to 10 channels.
