Audio-Technica AEW-5255 overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica AEW-5255a is a wireless microphone system delivering professional, dual wireless transmitter operation in theaters, houses-of-worship and more. This system includes the AEW-R5200 dual receiver and two AEW-T5400a handheld transmitters.

The AEW-R5200 dual receiver is designed for use with the 5000 series wireless microphone system. The receiver features two independent receivers with 996 UHF selectable frequencies each, enabling two transmitters to operate simultaneously. Diversity reception minimizes drop-out and RF interference, resulting in the strongest possible reception.

The rear panel reveals independent balanced 1/4" Phone and balanced XLR outputs. A comprehensive backlit LCD display reveals channel and frequency settings, signal status and transmitter battery status. The 5000 series enhanced features include IntelliScan which automatically sets best available frequencies on all linked receivers, and Dual Compandor circuitry which processes high and low frequency signal separately resulting in superior audio quality.

The AEW-T5400a features a cardioid polar pattern, minimizing pick up at the off-axis sections of the capsule. This minimizes noise and provides higher gain-before-feedback. The transmitters feature rugged, ergonomic metal design able to withstand rigorous road use. Additional features include IntelliScan automated frequency detection, On/Off/Mute switch and backlit LCD display. The transmitters operate up to 8 hours on 2 AA alkaline batteries.
