audio-technica wireless?

Does anyone know or have experience using the audio-technica 100 series wireless lav mikes? I believe it also goes by the description of U101. I'm looking to buy a decent UHF setup, but I wanted to try and stay under $700-800 if possible.

Thanks in advance - Chris

Take a look at the Sennheiser eW112p

You might want to examine the Senheiser eW112p wireless lav system. I got mine for $450 and though its not diversity it has always performed quite well.

I am looking at the ATW-U100 from Audio Technica as well. There's a killer deal on them at this URL:

The Lectro (Lectrosonics) gear is excellent too:

I used some Lectro lav's recently and am totally impressed, though they're pretty expensive compared to Audio Technica.

These guys carry both Audio Technica and Lectro:

They're out of San Francisco/Oakland. I spoke with a guy named Mike (in the SF store) and he was REALLY knowledgeable about the differences between the gear. Maybe give him a call or an email and see what he thinks of the U100's?

Hope that helps.

The Audio Technica U100 system is a good on camera wireless for the money. It is a true diversity unit with two bands avaialble (700MHz and 600MHz) the 600 MHz is tagged with an "X". I went to their website and check frequency compatability by entering my zip code. I found less crowding in my area by using the "x" version. The aoutput is an XLR connector so you will need the XLR adapter (m100 or M200?)

The bodypack is all metal construction and the receiver comes with a pouch and and velcro bits for mounting. The receiver also has a headphone output so you can monitor the audio.

I also used the plug-on transmitter to take a feed from a PA system output to allow me to remain mobile and keep problems from ground loops etc out of my audio during some event stuff. Plug this little box into a line out from the PA and set it up high on top of the PA system effects rack for best lien of sight operation.

I have used one several times in the past year on a Panasonic Supercam... Yes, my XL1s will be here next week.... Can't wait.

Hope this helps.
cheers
