Audio-Technica ATW-1701 Overview

The Audio-Technica System 10 ATW-1701 is a digital wireless microphone system specifically engineered to meet the audio needs of vloggers, mobile journalists, and videographers. It provides an easy-to-operate solution with sophisticated technology to ensure reliability and high-quality audio for projects ranging from YouTube and wedding videos to corporate spots and interviews.

The ATW-1701 features a bodypack transmitter with a cW-style 4-pin locking connector, allowing you to plug in a compatible lavalier or headset mic of your choice. The camera-mount receiver connects to your DSLR or mirrorless camera with the included 3.5mm output cable. The System 10 operates anywhere in the world, transmitting 24-bit/48 kHz audio in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, well away from potential TV and radio interference.

This peer-to-peer system delivers three levels of diversity assurance—frequency, time, and space—for optimal performance at a range up to 100'. Just power up the components, and the receiver automatically seeks out a clean frequency and pairs up with the transmitter, saving you the hassle of scanning and syncing before a shoot. Up to eight wireless mics may be used on set at once.

Triple Diversity Technology for Reliable Performance

  • Space Diversity: The receiver compares the signal showing up at its two antennas and chooses the strongest one.
  • Time Diversity: The transmitter sends the digital signal in two imperceptibly different time slots and compares the two.
  • Frequency Diversity: The digital audio is sent over two different frequencies at the same time and the system chooses the cleaner one.
  • For optimal performance, users are encouraged to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver.

Rich with Features and Ready for Action

  • The level control on the transmitter can be set to match the sensitivity of your microphone or audio source for distortion-free input .
  • The output level on the receiver can be reduced by 10 or 20 dB if you find you're overloading the input to your camera or recording device. The 3.5mm output can be switched to deliver either a balanced or unbalanced signal.
  • Both the transmitter and receiver are housed in lightweight, plastic chassis and equipped with belt clips. The included shoemount allows you to easily mount the receiver to your camera.
  • With just a quick press, the power switch on the transmitter doubles as a mute function. This function can be locked out to prevent an accident.
  • Conveniently, the receiver's LCD display shows critical information for the receiver as well as the transmitter—including battery status, signal level, mute status, and channel selection for both units.
  • An additional 3.5mm output on the receiver allows you to monitor your signal while recording—helpful if your camera doesn't offer a headphone jack.
  • The receiver features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 12 hours of operation. Using the included power adapter, the battery can be recharged via USB in about 4.5 hours, while in operation.
  • On the transmitter's end, power is supplied by two AA batteries, giving you up to 7 hours of shooting time depending on battery type and usage.
  • With this peer-to-peer system, you can only use one transmitter and one receiver at once. However, up to 8 transmitters can be paired with the receiver ahead of time. This is useful in situations when you have multiple speakers, one after another, and you need to have them miked up and ready to go. All you'll have to do is turn one transmitter off and the next one on.
  • For man-on-the-street interviews or if you need to pass the mic between several people, you can add the ATW-T1002 handheld transmitter/microphone to your system.

question

Can the transmitter accept a line level signal out of a mixer?
Asked by: Eric
I've never done it, but the transmitter can be used with a musical instrument plugged into it, so I would imagine a line level input would work if you can find the correct cable to plug into it. B&H customer service should be able to answer more specifically.

Can I use the AT 803 mic with this unit?

Can I use the AT 803 mic with this unit?
Asked by: David
The Audio-Technica At 803 lavalier microphone will not connect to this wireless system. I would recommend the Audio-Technica AT899CW - Sub-Miniature Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone, BH #AUAT899CW, which is a high quality miniature condenser clip-on microphone that has the appropriate locking 4-pin connector.

question

So what you're saying is the receiver has an internal battery that will need to be recharged? So it's useless until charged? Is the Li-ion battery replaceable on the receiver? Please say it is.
Asked by: Robert B.
This transmitter runs on 2x 1.5 V AA (not included). Standard alkaline or rechargeable AA cells may be used. The receiver portion includes a 3.7V rechargeable Li-ion battery that must be charged prior to use. it is not user replaceable.

question

does the Lav Mic come with a windscreen?
Asked by: Ryan M.
There actually is no microphone with this system - it must be purchased separately. This is just the transmitter and receiver. I purchased the AT898cW lav mic, and it comes with a windscreen.
