Audio-Technica in Stow, Ohio, a leader in transducer technology for more than 45 years, is offering a 700 MHz trade-in program in an effort to encourage wireless users to move out of the 700MHz spectrum range in anticipation of regulatory decisions by the FCC.

Under the terms of the exchange, owners of A-T's discontinued 7000 Series, U100 and 1400 Series wireless microphone systems that operate in the 700 MHz range, are offered a 15-percent rebate on the purchase of any new A-T products from an authorized Audio-Technica U.S. dealer with the successful exchange of 700 MHz receivers. The 15-percent rebate can apply to any dollar amount spent on new A-T product from an authorized dealer.

There is no limit on the condition or age of wireless products qualified for rebate. The receivers must be turned in by September 30, 2009, for rebates good through the end of the year.

More than 10 years ago, the FCC made the decision to auction off television spectrum in the 700 MHz frequency spectrum. At that time, Audio-Technica decided to develop all new wireless microphone systems outside of what would eventually become a hostile RF environment. As a result, A-T brought to market the 200, 700, 1800, 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000 Series wireless systems, all of which operate below the 700 MHz frequency range. Expecting continued reduction of available spectrum for wireless microphone users, A-T introduced the SpectraPulse Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system in 2007, which operates in the 6GHz range, well outside of the TV bands in question.

Audio-Technica notes that this trade-in program does not apply to its 700 Series Wireless Systems, which do not operate in the 700 MHz frequency range.

The 700 MHz trade-in program begins immediately. For details on how to participate, visit Audio-Technica's Website.
