The Audio-Technica AEW-5255 Artist Elite Wireless System includes the AEW-R5200 dual receiver and two AEW-T5400 cardioid condenser microphone/transmitters.
Designed for live audio use on professional tours, in stadiums, concert halls, houses of worship and other demanding sound environments, Audio-Technica's dual-receiver Artist Elite 5000 Series provides incredible audio quality and proven, critically acclaimed performance for artists, broadcasters and presenters worldwide.
With two independent True Diversity receivers in a single full-rack housing, the AEW-5255 from the 5000 Series conserves rack space while providing outstandingly reliable and flexible performance. Two hundred selectable channels are offered in each of two available UHF bands. Receivers may be linked to form a complete system in which the built-in IntelliScan capability automatically determines and sets the best available frequencies on all linked receivers. Equipped with Ethernet ports, the 5000 Series receiver allows computer management and control (software included).
Two independent synthesized UHF receiver channels in a full-rack 1U case. Its common power supply operates on 100”240V 50/60 Hz AC power worldwide with the appropriate IEC-type power input cordset. In addition, a pass-through AC outlet on each receiver with included AC jumper cable permits daisy-chaining of an entire AEW-R5200 receiver stack, freeing AC outlets for other equipment.
Consumer Alert:Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.
