Audio-Technica ATW-1701/L Overview

The Audio-Technica System 10 ATW-1701/L 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/L features an omnidirectional lavalier microphone and bodypack transmitter for hands-free speech and dialog, along with a camera-mount receiver that connects to your DSLR or mirrorless camera via the included 3.5mm output cable. It 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 MT830cW lavalier microphone features an Audio-Technica cW-style 4-pin locking connector and delivers a natural, broadcast-quality sound optimized for speech intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that the sound remains consistent, even when the speaker's head moves away from the mic.
  • 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.

Can I use it while it is charging?
Asked by: Avery
The instructions say yes, although I never thought to do that so I had to look. It is a great system and I've never had any problems with it at all.

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.
You can also power the reciever through its micro USB input, not just charge. Carry a small USB charging pack (10000-20000 maH) like the ones sold for recharging phones and tablets on-the-go and you'll have more than enough power for a long shoot. it's not as ideal as a field replaceable battery, but with 6 operating hours from a full charge, it's not often you should have to do this work around.

question

will this work on a go pro???
Asked by: Justin H.
The Hero2 has the necessary input port, but if you've got a newer model you'll need the GoPro USB to 3.5mm mic adapter - then you're good to go!

question

Would I be able to use a different mic than the included Lav? What kind of adapter would be required for a mic with XLR output? It would be used with a fixed mic on a stand about 90 feet line of sight from the receiver. Sound would only be for camera sync.
Asked by: James
You are NOT limited to just the included lav. There are several other mic options available including a cardioid lav AT898CW which I use, and a hand held cardioid with built-in transmitter designed for the System 10 reciever.You can also get (or make) adapters to connect XLR to the AT 4-pin with the right wiring. note that the impedence of some mics will match better than others.
