The Audio-Technica System 10 ATW-1701 is a digital wireless microphone system specifically engineered to meet the audio needs of vloggers, mobile journalists, and videographers. It provides an easy-to-operate solution with sophisticated technology to ensure reliability and high-quality audio for projects ranging from YouTube and wedding videos to corporate spots and interviews.

The ATW-1701 features a bodypack transmitter with a cW-style 4-pin locking connector, allowing you to plug in a compatible lavalier or headset mic of your choice. The camera-mount receiver connects to your DSLR or mirrorless camera with the included 3.5mm output cable. The System 10 operates anywhere in the world, transmitting 24-bit/48 kHz audio in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, well away from potential TV and radio interference.

This peer-to-peer system delivers three levels of diversity assurance—frequency, time, and space—for optimal performance at a range up to 100′. Just power up the components, and the receiver automatically seeks out a clean frequency and pairs up with the transmitter, saving you the hassle of scanning and syncing before a shoot. Up to eight wireless mics may be used on set at once.

Triple Diversity Technology for Reliable Performance
  • Space Diversity: The receiver compares the signal showing up at its two antennas and chooses the strongest one.
  • Time Diversity: The transmitter sends the digital signal in two imperceptibly different time slots and compares the two.
  • Frequency Diversity: The digital audio is sent over two different frequencies at the same time and the system chooses the cleaner one.
  • For optimal performance, users are encouraged to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver.
Rich with Features and Ready for Action
  • The level control on the transmitter can be set to match the sensitivity of your microphone or audio source for distortion-free input .
  • The output level on the receiver can be reduced by 10 or 20 dB if you find you’re overloading the input to your camera or recording device. The 3.5mm output can be switched to deliver either a balanced or unbalanced signal.
  • Both the transmitter and receiver are housed in lightweight, plastic chassis and equipped with belt clips. The included shoemount allows you to easily mount the receiver to your camera.
  • With just a quick press, the power switch on the transmitter doubles as a mute function. This function can be locked out to prevent an accident.
  • Conveniently, the receiver’s LCD display shows critical information for the receiver as well as the transmitter—including battery status, signal level, mute status, and channel selection for both units.
  • An additional 3.5mm output on the receiver allows you to monitor your signal while recording—helpful if your camera doesn’t offer a headphone jack.
  • The receiver features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 12 hours of operation. Using the included power adapter, the battery can be recharged via USB in about 4.5 hours, while in operation.
  • On the transmitter’s end, power is supplied by two AA batteries, giving you up to 7 hours of shooting time depending on battery type and usage.
  • With this peer-to-peer system, you can only use one transmitter and one receiver at once. However, up to 8 transmitters can be paired with the receiver ahead of time. This is useful in situations when you have multiple speakers, one after another, and you need to have them miked up and ready to go. All you’ll have to do is turn one transmitter off and the next one on.
  • For man-on-the-street interviews or if you need to pass the mic between several people, you can add the ATW-T1002 handheld transmitter/microphone to your system.

  1. Mike B.

    When I got this I was super excited to try them out. like a kid on Xmas I got right into the box and started checking it all out and to my dismay there was no lav mic. I didn’t realize it’s sold separately. When the mic came and I got to try it out I was impressed. The sound quality was great easy set up and no interference. I would recommend these but remember mic is sold separately

    I use the System 10 for my acoustic guitar , electric guitar as well as vocal mics and instrument mics . I use the System 10 for on stage use and for studio recording . I get clear signals with no cut-outs and awesome sound ! With a great price point ! Sincerely , Derek

  3. Timbo

    I use this primarily for lecture videos but I have used this for field recording as well. I have been as close as 20′ from the receiver and as far away as 120′ from the receiver and there has been no deviation in the sound. Also the lavalier mic that comes with this unit is awesome. It’s omnidirectional and it gives a great sound. No need to tweak the sound in post. Overall, I am very happy with this wireless system and for the price, it simply can’t be beat!

  4. InsipidVirusa

    I love this system. It’s very versatile. I wish I could pair more than one mic, but that would be my only complaint…if I had one. The videos I added to my review were recorded on my Sony A7Sii with this microphone system, the hand-held mic, just out of frame. Except for the Opioid Addiction Conference.

  5. Phila Fred

    To begin with, the quality of the audio is extremely clear and clean. Even though it is not touted as a professional grade wireless, I would have no issues with using the resultant audio on any Hollywood or broadcast production. Being up in the 2.4 GHz band is a major plus. At least for now, that part of the spectrum is very clean and usable, compared to the over-crowded UHF TV frequencies currently utilized by wireless mics (and soon to be shrunk yet again by our politically influenced FCC). The System 10 supports up to eight operating systems at once, and frequency coordination between multiple systems occurs automatically and seamlessly once each receiver/transmitter is paired with the press of a button. Trying to describe it makes it sound a lot more complicated than it really is. The literature boasts a 100 foot operating range. Not a huge distance, but more than enough for a soundstage and most exterior set-ups. I first tested my unit in my house, and had no problems transmitting through interior walls, around computers, WiFi, and operating kitchen appliances. Next, I placed the transmitter next to a TV located at the front of my kitchen which faces out to the street. I walked the receiver through a couple of rooms and to the rear of the house, out the backdoor, and as far deep into the yard as the fence would let me. Not a single drop-out! Seventy or eighty feet, and that was transmitting through walls. The signal did not max out; I simply ran out of lawn! For my next tests, I went out on the street. I walked past 2 houses, crossed the intersection diagonally, and continued a little ways further. I calculated the distance at around 75 paces, which for me works out at 125 to 140 feet. Not bad, and certainly better than the 1800 series usually performs. The receiver weighs only four ounces, which is featherweight compared to other units. No problem stacking three or four of these next to a four-track mixer/recorder for simple reality or docu production. The lightweight receiver is also perfect for mounting on cameras, even those balanced for SteadiCam or similar stabilizing gimbals. Out of the box, the receiver has a 3.5mm output jack that is switchable for either unbalanced dual mono or balanced TRS. In the unbalanced mode, you would use a simple 1/8 inch stereo male to 1/8 inch stereo male cable (included in the package) to send a dual mono signal (a stereo signal in which Left and Right are absolutely identical) to a DSLR or camcorder. I used it with my camcorder and everything sounded great.To use the System 10 with a more professional input, such as a balanced XLR, all you have to do is to slide the output switch on the receiver to the right, which is the BALANCED position. You will need to acquire a 3.5mm Tip-Ring-Sleeve male to XLR adapter cable. I still had one of the transformer balanced 1/8 inch mono plug to XLR adapter (CP8306) that was made for the Pro88. If you use one of these cables, use the unbalanced dual mono setting. I tried a CP8306 with my system into an ENG mixing panel and everything sounded good. The System 10 transmitter takes two AA batteries. Transmitter battery level is monitored on the receiver, for your convenience. The receiver uses an internal rechargeable battery that is rated for up to 12 hours of use. It recharges just like a phone, via a USB charging device. You can operate the receiver from available AC, using the supplied USB cable and USB power adapter. If you are nervous about the receiver battery not making it entirely through the shooting day, you could also just plug the USB cable into a small USB battery pack — just as you would your smartphone. Rechargeable USB external battery packs are available all over the net. What is NOT included in the System 10 camera-mount package is the lavalier mic itself. I did my testing with my favorite lav, the AT899cW. That is the mic that I most use on film sets. I would also recommend the MT830cW which performs very closely to the AT899 but costs less. Of course, you could use any lavalier wired with the cW (hirose) connector. But I believe that it is always worth it to spend a little more and get a top quality lav rather than something only because it is cheaper. I tell my students that wireless mics is a misnomer — they are really just wireless CABLES. The transmitter/receiver does not replace the mic element, only the long cable linking talent to the mixing board! Good audio still demands a good performing microphone (lav) to capture the raw sound. Another application of this portable wireless is for public speaking. I travel a lot, speaking to large groups of students or professionals, instructing them on Production Sound Recording. With my own System 10, all that I have to do is just unplug the existing mic from the podium and replace it with my self powered receiver using an XLR output cable. Then I am free to wear my own transmitter, equipped with a headworn mic, and not have to worry about moving around on stage, or demo’ing equipment with both hands. Since the System 10 is 2.4 GHz and hops around any used frequencies — I do not have to worry about any nearby wireless or TV transmitters. In conclusion, the new Audio Technica System 10 Camera Mount Wireless is a winner. Not only would I have zero hesitation to deploy these wireless on a professional shoot — I look forward to it.

    Here is the link to the YouTube video that I just posted with 3 of the walk tests that I did with the System 10 wireless. The unit achieves better than expected range; easily delivering the advertised 100 feet. On multiple occasions, I was getting 150 to over 200 feet. (View and hear the video at ) Again, bear in mind that these are low cost systems and not intended to compete against the high quality wireless that we use on major shoots. But for an inexpensive unit, they perform surprisingly well. I brought the system with me to the Cinema TV Arts Dept at California State University Northridge in order to shoot some more tests. CSUN has a soundstage for the film program that is approx 50 ft by 75 feet. Camera and the System 10 stayed in the rear corner, while I moved around the entire space. Even while hovering near a laptop and the lighting dimmer board — the System 10 performed flawlessly. And, yes, there is WiFi in the stage. We went into the main corridor of the film/TV building (Manzanita Hall), which is dotted with electronic RFI emitters and WiFi routers (according to the department’s Chief Video Engineer). The System 10 transmitted perfectly the entire length (approx 150 feet). Heading outside onto campus, on multiple tests we achieved 150 to 250 feet. Although we did encounter the occasional minor dropout on one or two of our footpaths, the unit was always reliable up to 125 feet; and depending on the pathway, sometimes good past 200 feet. I included one of those walk tests, where we made it 220 feet before the signal began to cut out. The aforementioned Video Engineer was curious about transmitting through walls, so I stayed inside the corridor while he went outside and roamed around the exterior of the building. Signal held up nicely passing through just one exterior wall, but did drop out when he turned (still outside the building) 90 degrees from the corridor and thus placed multiple interior rooms in our signal path.
