Audio-Technica Shows 6000 Series Wireless System

In response to the FCC’s 2016 incentive auction, Audio-Technica is showcasing its new 6000 Series High Density Wireless System, a spectrum-efficient solution that allows users to pack 31 channels in 4 MHz of bandwidth.

In response to the FCC’s actions on spectrum, Audio-Technica developed the 6000 Series of wireless microphone system. The channels are spaced at 125 KHz intervals and can all be used simultaneously. The new system operates in the 944-952 MHz band, which is free of broadcast TV.

The FCC has expanded license eligibility for this band beyond broadcasters and content creators to include sound companies and venues that routinely operate 50 wireless microphones or more.

The 6000 Series system consists of the following components: the ATW-R6200 receiver, the ATW-T6001 body-pack transmitter, an optional ATW-DA410 antenna distribution system and a number of compatible Audio-Technica lavalier and headworn microphones.

Key features include high-performance filtering to remove external noise; clear, easy-to-read displays; transmitter frequency setup from receiver via IR sync; network monitor and control; durable, compact body-pack transmitter design and a reliable new miniature input connector.

The true diversity components operate at 946.125 to 949.875 MHz with 31 simultaneous channels at 125 kHz intervals. The ATW-T6001 body-pack transmitter, weighing 3.2 ounces, runs on two AA alkaline batteries for six hours.

The system is now available with the receiver priced at $2,999 and the transmitter at $1,299. The ATW-DA410 antenna distribution system is priced at $4,349.
