Stow, OH (August 6, 2009)–Audio-Technica has begun offering new freight options and extended terms for its Engineered Sound line of products, and has also expanded the warranty on the line to five years.
The Audio-Technica Engineered Sound line is available only to the professional installed sound market via a network of specialized sound contractors and system integrators, as opposed to retail outlets. The Engineered Sound line features RoHS compliance, full UniGuard RFI immunity and the ability to meet international specifications.
Engineered Sound microphones and accessories are designed for installation in churches, boardrooms and government meeting rooms, courtrooms, distance-learning facilities and other corporate installations. This contractor-exclusive line includes a wide assortment of UniGuard RFI-protected gooseneck, hanging, boundary, lavalier and handheld microphones.
The Engineered Sound line also includes Audio-Technica’s recently introduced ATCS-60 Infrared Conference System. The ATCS-60 is a fully self-contained wireless distributed audio system using infrared communications technology, designed for corporate, government and educational applications. Additionally, the Engineered Sound line also includes the ultra wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system, Audio-Technica’s SpectraPulse UWB Wireless Microphone System. The SpectraPulse System offers 14 simultaneous channels that are said to operate without RF turf wars, “white space” issues, frequency hunting/coordination or interference.
Tom George, director of Installations at Eighth Day Sound Systems (Highland Heights, OH), stated, “Sound contracting products need to be extremely durable – basically bulletproof – since in most cases, an installation requires that they work for months or years on end. Audio-Technica’s Engineered Sound products always meet these demands in a major way, and the new extended warranty underscores Audio-Technica’s reliability and commitment to the fixed installation markets. This is why I continue to spec Audio-Technica for critical installations in boardrooms, corporate facilities and houses of worship.”
“Our new programs for the contractor-only Engineered Sound product line will benefit our E.S. dealers and end-users alike,” stated Greg Pinto, Audio-Technica VP of Marketing. “Extending the warranty on E.S. products to 5-years reflects the confidence the marketplace has in Audio-Technica products, while extending terms and freight programs show our commitment to solving the day-to-day difficulties faced by contractors and integrators in these difficult economic times. It’s a winning combination for everyone.”
