The Audio-Technica ATW-R3100bC True Diversity UHF Wireless Receiver is used in the Audio-Technica 3000 series wireless microphone systems. It features Automatic Frequency Scanning, which selects the best available frequency. True Diversity means that the ATW-R3100bC has two independent receiver sections, and automatically sends the strongest signal of the two to the output at any given moment, greatly reducing the possibility of dropouts.
Other features include nine pre-coordinated frequency scan groups to simplify channel selection in a multi-channel system; a high-efficiency compander; 25 kHz frequency spacing, which makes it easier to find open channels in crowded frequency bands; DigitalTone Lock Squelch and Adjustable Receiver Squelch to help keep background noise suppressed when the intended signal isn't present; and a transmitter battery life gauge.
Among the rear-panel offerings are unbalanced 1/4" TS and balanced XLR outputs, and an output level control. The back-lit LCD display reveals channel and frequency settings, signal status and transmitter battery status. The receiver also offers a ground lift switch, convenient in situations where bad power feeds result in ground hum and noise on the output stage.
