Audio-Technica Wireless Systems Used For CMA’s 2019 Christmas Show

Microphones and wireless systems from Audio-Technica were employed at the Country Music Association’s CMA Country Christmas broadcast Dec. 3 on ABC.

Audio-Technica’s Third-Generation 5000 Series frequency-agile true-diversity UHF wireless system with ATW-C5400 microphone capsules were used on vocals for multiple artists, including the Christian pop crossover group For King & Country and gospel singer CeCe Winans.

The show also used wired A-T microphones, including several AT4050 large-diaphragm condenser microphones used on the choir.

The 5000 Series dual receiver offers 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 or a receiver that also includes a Dante output.

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.
