    Audio-Technica’s first entry into digital wireless was SpectraPulse, a specialized system for secure conferencing applications.

System 10 is not a professional touring wireless microphone system, like the company’s 4000 and 5000 Series, yet it implements some impressive technology in an easy-to-use package. The system sounds good and contains a variety of integral features that solve common wireless performance and coordination problems.… View this post
