Professional wireless system with two independent receivers

The heart of Audio-Technica's 5000 Series is the AEW-R5200 true diversity frequency-agile dual receiver, which comprises two independent receivers in a single full-rack housing. 200 selectable UHF channels are offered in the range of 655.500 to 680.375 MHz (TV channels 44-49), with an operational range in excess of 300 feet. Receivers may be linked to form a complete system in which the built-in IntelliScan capability can automatically determine and set the best available frequencies on all linked receivers, minimizing interference and intermodulation. An AC pass-through system allows multiple receivers to be powered using only one outlet. Receivers also include Ethernet ports, enabling monitoring of system parameters via the included Macintosh® or Windows® software. Dual-band compander circuitry compresses and expands low- and high-frequency audio signals separately, minimizing artifacts such as pumping and breathing and maximizing audio quality. The digital Tone Lock™ squelch system ignores RF that does not carry the wanted signal's unique signature. Concurrently, a digital ID signal carried by the frequency-modulated audio conveys transmitter information back to the receiver. An external mute switch jack provides the capability to mute the system quickly and easily.

The AEW-5244 features the AEW-R5200 dual receiver and two AEW-T4100 cardioid dynamic microphone/transmitters.

For the bodypack system, see the AEW-5110.

Worry-free Wireless!

We wanted you to know that all of the wireless systems you see here — and all of the wireless systems available at Sweetwater — are 100% compliant with the Federal Communication Commission's new rules governing wireless systems. You can be confident that these systems will work safely and within the permitted frequency/power ranges, just as they are. However, please be aware that by choosing to use systems that operate in the 700MHz range or by modifying a new wireless system you receive from us, you may cause your system to operate outside the FCC's new guidelines. If that's the case, you may need a license to operate the unit. To find out more, visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones or give them a call at (888) CALL-FCC.
