The ATW-T1002 delivers a digital wireless performance at 24-bit/48 kHz, while its 2.4 GHz range allows the microphone to operate completely free from the burden of TV and 3G interference. This is a fantastic feature considering the ubiquity of 3G signals everywhere and anywhere.

This high-calibre receiver delivers hi-fi level sound quality across the whole frequency band thanks to not compressing the signal during reception and transmission.
Intuitive, High-Calibre Kit
Let’s zoom out and examine the system as a whole. This digital system is defined by its 2.4Ghz range, as it is this that underpins the system’s dependable performance, allowing you to get on with your show. The 2.4 band ensures that you avoid frequencies utilised by 4G and DTV, while also protecting you from frequency coordination problems.

The dependability of the system is assured by Audio Technica’s adherence to the performance markers of time, frequency and space. Time is utilised by the signal being sent in multiple time slot to help ensure that multipath interference is minimised. Frequency is catered for by the signal being sent on two allocated frequencies to eliminated interference. Finally, space is utilised thanks to two antennae being situated on each transmitter and receiver to strengthen the signal.
The Audio Technica ATW 1102 system is a truly accessible design, which is always an appealing trait to find in a product. The system definitely performs at a professional level, but thanks to its user-friendly and intuitive design, it does not require special training to be used.
