AT_6000_Series

6000 Series High Density Wireless System

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.

     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 head-worn microphones.

AT_5000_Series

5000 Series Frequency-Agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems

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.

AT_3000_Series

3000 Series Frequency-Agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems

The new 3000 Series systems are available in two frequency bands – DE2 (470–530 MHz) and EE1 (530–590 MHz). Frequencies can be easily scanned and selected on the receiver and then synced with the transmitter via IR sync functionality. The 3000 Series even lets users set a backup frequency that can be quickly swapped by pressing the transmitter’s multifunction button in the event of unexpected interference.

AT_M50xBB

ATH-M50xBB Blue/Black Version Professional Monitor Headphones

The headphones incorporate technology drawn from Audio-Technica’s long history in the field of high-performance professional audio, providing exceptional power handling, very high SPL capability, and natural, accurate sound with impactful bass and high-frequency extension. With professional-grade ear-pad and headband material and a collapsible design with detachable cable, the ATH-M50xBB headphones remain comfortable throughout long monitoring sessions and transport easily. The headphones feature metallic blue ear-cups and black accents including distinctive trimming, ear-pads and headband.

AT5047

AT5047 Studio Microphone

The AT5047 captures the full, expressive character of a sound source, no matter how loud or how soft. And since it is equipped with a transformer-coupled output, the microphone maintains a constant load output impedance, even when capturing sources at extreme SPL, resulting in a stable relationship between the mic and a mic preamp or console input.

Audio-Technica is pleased to introduce two DJ-specific headphone models: the over-ear ATH-PRO5X (available in black and white) and the on-ear ATH-PRO7X (available in black). Both models feature impressive power handling, excellent isolation, robust construction, and maximum comfort for long sessions.

The AT-LP1240-USB XP is a direct-drive professional DJ turntable outfitted with the new AT-XP5 DJ cartridge. The turntable offers a host of high-performance features that make it ideal for pro, mobile and club DJ use. The turntable’s S-shaped tone arm has various adjustments available, including tracking force, anti-skate, and vertical tracking angle. It features a removable head-shell with the newly designed AT-XP5 cartridge pre-mounted.

The AT-LP1240-USB XP turntable comes with a damped cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and slip mat, an illuminated speed indicator and adjustable pitch control, a start/stop button, a removable stylus target light, a dedicated tone arm grounding lug, a hydraulically-damped lift lever and a locking tone arm rest. The turntable has a built-in switchable phono pre-amplifier with dual RCA output jacks with detachable cables. An additional USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer vinyl records to digital music files. Included are a USB cable, audio adapter cables, removable dust cover, and 45 RPM adapter.

Rounding out the DJ line are two new moving magnet DJ phono cartridges.
