The Audio Technica AEW-4240a Cardioid Dynamic Handheld
Wireless Microphone System is a Frequency Agile, True Diversity UHF Wireless
System. The upgraded Audio Technica AEW-4240a Cardioid Dynamic Handheld
Wireless Microphone System brings outstanding clarity and versatility
to live performance, regional touring, fixed installations and more. At
the heart of the Audio Technica AEW-4240a Cardioid Dynamic Handheld Wireless
Microphone System is a rugged True Diversity half-rack receiver, the AEW-R4100a.
Audio-Technica’s AEW-R4100a receiver operates on one of two UHF
bands with 996 selectable frequencies. 25 kHz frequency spacing enables
the systems to easily find an open frequency in crowded RF environments.
It is equipped with IntelliScan automatic channel assignment system, which
greatly simplifies the selection of usable frequencies in a multi-channel
wireless system and eliminates the need for searching for clear channels.
The receiver features true diversity reception with two antennas feeding
two completely independent RF sections. Automatic logic circuitry continuously
compares and selects the superior received signal providing better sound
quality and reducing the potential for dropouts. A unique dual compander
design extends the audio bandwidth of the system and an advanced digital
Tone Lock™ squelch helps minimize interference.
Audio-Technica’s AEW-T4100a cardioid dynamic wireless handheld
transmitter features the Artist Elite AE4100 cardioid capsule created
for live sound venues. The element includes internal shock mounts for
low handling noise. An integral two-stage pop filter within the rugged
steel headcase protects against “p” pops and other breath
plosives. All transmitter setup functions are menu-driven via soft-touch
controls. To prevent accidental changes, the controls are covered by the
transmitter’s handle case when not being used. A red operational
status LED indicates power-on. A dual-color power/mute indicator LED provides
visual indication of transmitter status.
