At the 53rd Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15, 2018, Jason Aldean won “Entertainer of the Year” honors for the third consecutive year. Aldean performed live, opening the show with spoken remarks and closing the show with a performance of his new single “You Make It Easy.”
Aldean used Audio-Technica’s Artist Elite 5000 Series UHF wireless system with the AEW-T6100a hypercardioid dynamic handheld transmitter.
The newly upgraded 5000 Series features dual-compander circuitry to processes high and low frequencies separately. It also features A-T’s proprietary IntelliScan capability, 996-channel frequency agility, True Diversity operation, soft-touch controls, digital Tone Lock squelch, and backlit LCD displays on all transmitters.
Equipped with Ethernet ports, the 5000 Series receiver allows computer management and control from anywhere via new wireless control software; access computer control from a front of house rack in the same room, or clear across the country.
The AEW-T6100a hypercardioid dynamic wireless handheld transmitter features the Artist Elite AE6100 hypercardioid capsule created for live sound venues. With a polar pattern tailored for on-axis response, fast transients and clean articulation, the capsule offers feedback rejection and anti-shock engineering for low handling noise.
