Stow, OH (November 6, 2017)—In preparation for the upcoming shift away from wireless systems operating in the 600 MHz band (614 to 698 MHz), A-T has announced a wide-ranging trade-in rebate program “that will greatly assist wireless users in switching to a new system that accommodates the new guidelines, on their terms, through March 31, 2019,” explains the company.
“Unless your system is part of a mission critical application, Audio-Technica recommends following a use-it-til-you-lose-it path,” continues A-T promotional materials. “Begin budgeting for a new system, get as much use as you can out of your current 600 MHz system (up to the FCC deadline), then make the switch once you encounter problems. This also may allow you to take advantage of any new wireless systems brought to market before you make your switch to a new wireless system.”
Here are specific directions for the trade-in process:
1. Verify that your trade-in system operates in the 600 MHz band. Your receiver and/or transmitter should include a sticker with the frequency range. If any part of the listed frequency range falls within the 614 – 698 MHz range, your system will eventually be prohibited from operating and is eligible for trade-in.
2. Purchase an eligible Audio-Technica wireless system from an authorized Audio-Technica dealer in the U.S. and its territories between 8/15/2017 and 3/31/2019.
