The Audio-Technica System 10 is an excellent value in wireless microphone systems for small churches. You can run up to 8 systems within a hundred feet, there are wireless handheld and beltpack choices for singers, guitarists and pastors, and it's ridiculously easy to sync the transmitters with the receiver. Just choose the channel you want on the receiver, hit "pair", and then hit the same button on the wireless transmitter you want. With uncompressed sound, you get the same audio quality as a wired microphone with the freedom of a wireless system.
System 10 ensures that you get reliable audio transmission with sophisticated back-up and diversity technology. Audio Technica ingeniously put two antennas in each component of the system (the beltpack transmitter, handheld transmitter, and receiver) for dual diversity antenna operation. This means that if your singer's hand covers one antenna or there is other interference, the second antenna will still work, and each antenna is on a different frequency. The receiver will also automatically go out and search for non-interfered frequencies and store them in back-up. If there is interference on both frequencies, it just pulls up another open frequency behind-the-scenes and seamlessly switches in real time - so you don't even hear the difference!
This phenomenal high-fidelity digital wireless system has the functionality, diversity and professional sound quality that many small churches have been waiting for.
