At NAMM: Audio-Technica Updates 3000 Series Wireless System - ProSoundNetwork.com
The fourth generation 3000 Series wireless systems are expected to be available in the spring.

Anaheim, Calif. (January 28, 2018)—At the NAMM Show, Audio-Technica unveiled the next generation of its 3000 Series Frequency-Agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems.

The updated 3000 Series wireless systems are expected to be available in the spring.

With a 60 MHz tuning range, more than twice that offered by the previous versions, the 3000 Series systems are available in two frequency bands: DE2 (470–530 MHz) and EE1 (530–590 MHz). Frequencies can be scanned and selected on the receiver and then synched with the transmitter via IR sync functionality. The 3000 Series also lets users set a backup frequency that can be  swapped by pressing the transmitter’s multifunction button in the event of unexpected interference.

Available system configurations feature an ATW-R3210 receiver along with an ATW-T3201 bodypack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter. The ATW-T3201 is equipped with Audio-Technica’s new cH-style screw-down 4-pin connector for secure connection to A-T’s cH-style lavalier and headworn microphones, or cables. The ATW-T3202 comes with either an ATW-C510 dynamic or ATW-C710 condenser interchangeable cardioid capsule, and its industry-standard thread allows for the use of A-T and other compatible capsules.

Both transmitters feature metal housings and are powered by two AA batteries. Charging terminals on each transmitter work with the ATW-CHG3 and networkable ATW-CHG3N smart charging docks (sold separately) to recharge NiMH batteries. Antenna power is available for powered antennas and other in-line RF devices. A ground-lift switch helps eliminate audible hum caused by ground loops. The systems feature balanced and unbalanced audio output jacks.
