OVERVIEW

System 8 Wireless Systems are designed for reliable performance, easy setup and clear, natural sound quality. The ATW-801/G-T3 system includes the ATW-R800 receiver and ATW-T801 UniPak transmitter with a AT-GcW guitar/instrument cable.

This system transmits on the T3 band. The band is fixed, and if you are getting multiple systems, you'll want to be sure that each system occupies a different band.

A novel "dipole" antenna system on the receiver improves operation by providing a "ground" element in addition to the usual "signal" element. Line-of-sight operation is good to about 200 feet.

The System 8 Wireless lavalier system is a well-made, reliable, good-sounding wireless solution from one of the leaders in wireless audio technology, introduced at an affordable price. There are cheaper wireless systems on the market, but many of them lack depth and presence. The System 8 is professionally presentable for ministers, auctioneers, business speakers and teachers of all kinds.

Reliable wireless system for guitar.

Consumer Alert:

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.

      Comments about Audio-Technica System 8 Wireless System includes: Guitar/Instrument:

      Bought this as a replacement for an older model that was cutting out and losing signal. Unfortunately this model did the same thing so I am sending it back and trying a UHF wireless system with a higher frequency. The sound quality of my guitar seemed compressed as I had to turn the receiver down, with the receiver turned up as recommended there was a hissing sound on my amp and lots of feedback like the signal was over saturated. If you have lots of other wireless devices in the house I wouldn't recommend this system, I'm assuming there must be one of mine interfering with the signal from this system. Two other musicians in my band have UHF systems and have no drop outs or interference on their systems.

      Used it at home, seemed good. The wire from transmitter to guitar is thin and does not seem sturdy. Don't know if it would standup to the road. Used it at practice, and had a few a drop outs and heard some pops and extraneous sounds. Maybe I should have spent more money but some of the more expensive ones had similar issues.

          It's a great unit for the price. It doesn't have a million features, but it is easy to use right out of the box. The sound quality is perfect. I've only had it for a few weeks, so I'm not sure about the durability. Seems solid at any rate.

            This is a great little unit for being the price it is. Got it because I hate tripping on cords. Walk through whole house and never cuts out. Batteries last hours (at least duracells do), and don't bleed out when not in use. Light indicators aren't distracting but visible (as should be). Nice product...not ready for selling out a stadium, but for the money can't be happier.
