Notice to individuals with implanted cardiac pacemakers
or AICD devices:
Any source of RF (radio frequency) energy may interfere with
normal functioning of the implanted device. All wireless
microphones have low-power transmitters (less than 0.05
watts output) which are unlikely to cause difficulty, especially if they are at least a few inches away. However, since a
“body-pack” mic transmitter typically is placed against the
body, we suggest attaching it at the belt, rather than in a shirt
pocket where it may be immediately adjacent to the medical
device. Note also that any medical-device disruption will
cease when the RF transmitting source is turned off. Please
contact your physician or medical-device provider if you have
any questions, or experience any problems with the use of
this or any other RF equipment.
ATTENTION: Cet appareil doit être mise à la terre.

Introduction
Thank you for choosing an Audio-Technica professional
wireless system. You have joined thousands of other satisfied
customers who have chosen our products because of their
quality, performance and reliability. This Audio-Technica
wireless microphone system is the successful result of years
of design and manufacturing experience.
IntelliScan™ Channel Assignment System
The IntelliScan™ automatic channel assignment system,
provided on both the 4000 and 5000 Series receivers, greatly
simplifies the selection of usable frequencies in a multi-channel
wireless system. The receivers are first linked together with
included communication cables. The selected “Master” receiver then “knows” how many total channels it is looking for. It
can scan the available frequencies, checking for local interference sources, selecting a group of channels that will all work
together (using a built-in frequency plan), and automatically
setting the other receivers accordingly. Once this procedure is
completed, it’s just a matter of setting the transmitter
frequencies to match those of the receivers.
Recent advances in the quality and sophistication of professional live-sound systems have been nothing short of revolutionary.
Tours, clubs, broadcast events, corporate facilities and worship
venues sound better than ever, utilizing better system design
and better components in the audio chain.
That’s why Audio-Technica has been partnering with industry
professionals on the front line of this revolution – the top
touring companies, award show designers, FOH and monitor
engineers, audio consultants and artists – to learn what it
takes to make the best-sounding, most reliable and consistent
microphones for the live-sound industry.
Artist Elite Transmitters
Transmitter models in the Artist Elite Series include:
A UniPak™ body-pack transmitter:
• AEW-T1000
We listened carefully. Then, we applied this knowledge to
the creation of the Artist Elite® line of high-performance
microphones and wireless systems. Our ultimate design goal
was this: Each model must extend the performance of a sound
system, not limit it.
Four handheld mic/transmitters with different Artist Elite
microphone capsules:
• AEW-T3300
• AEW-T4100
Artist Elite Receivers
Artist Elite 4000 Series and 5000 Series wireless systems by
Audio-Technica share a range of transmitters in common, both
body-pack and handheld types. The difference between the
two series is simply in the choice of receiver:
4000 Series

Operating Frequencies
4000/5000 Series systems and components operate on 200
frequencies in one of two 25 MHz-wide UHF frequency ranges:
• Band C 541.500–566.375 MHz (TV Channels 25–30)
• Band D 655.500–680.375 MHz (TV Channels 44–49)
For simplicity, model numbers used throughout this manual will
reference only the basic model number without the “C” or “D”
band indications.
Artist Elite Series components feature an advanced digital Tone
Lock™ squelch system and unique Dual Compander design
(patents pending). As a result, Artist Elite Series transmitters
and receivers must be used together in Tx-Rx pairs and should
not be mixed with components from other Audio-Technica
wireless systems, or with those of other manufacturers.
All Artist Elite Series components feature soft-touch controls
for quick, easy access to a formidable range of functions; an
LCD information display in each unit provides convenient visual
indication of unit settings and operation. Digital data sent by the
transmitters is available for display on the receivers.
Both receivers offer a choice of 200 operating frequencies in a
25 MHz-wide UHF frequency range. AEW wireless are designed
with a channel spacing that exceeds the transmitters’ maximum
modulation deviation, so even adjacent channels are actually
usable, unlike some other wireless systems on the market.
(For operation of two or more systems at the same time,
use the IntelliScan function for frequency selection or, if setting
the frequencies manually, use frequencies that are within the
same IntelliScan groups listed on page 30.)
AEW-R4100: A single synthesized UHF receiver in a half-rack
1U case. Its power supply operates on 100–240V 50/60 Hz AC
power worldwide with the appropriate IEC-type power input
cordset.
AEW-R5200: Two independent synthesized UHF receiver
channels in a full-rack 1U case. Its common power supply
operates on 100–240V 50/60 Hz AC power worldwide with
the appropriate IEC-type power input cordset. In addition, a
“pass-through” AC outlet on each receiver with included AC
jumper cable permits daisy-chaining of an entire AEW-R5200
receiver stack, freeing AC outlets for other equipment.
Receivers
Both Artist Elite receiver models feature True Diversity
reception. Two antennas feed two completely independent
RF sections on the same frequency; automatic logic circuitry
continuously compares and selects the superior received signal,
providing better sound quality and reducing the possibility of
interference and dropouts.

Multi-channel Systems
Artist Elite systems provide extensive monitoring and control
facilities. Transmitter data, in addition to being available at the
transmitter, is conveyed in digital form to and displayed on the
associated receiver.
Linked systems: Both Artist Elite receivers provide linking jacks
and cables. AEW-R4100 and AEW-R5200 receivers may be
combined in linked multi-channel systems, if desired.
Ethernet-based monitoring and control (AEW-R5200): Some
wireless systems on the market offer remote control/monitoring
of the receiver via a serial interface, but the Audio-Technica
AEW-R5200 receiver takes this a significant step further by
including control over IP using standard networking protocol and
Ethernet interfacing. This permits receivers in a system to be
integrated, monitored and controlled from a single computer in
real-time. And not only can an individual channel of an individual
receiver be examined and its settings modified: if the transmitter on that channel is activated, thanks to the digital data link,
data from the associated transmitter can also be monitored.
Because standard control over IP is used, Ethernet-connected
AEW systems can range from a single laptop controlling a
free-standing multi-channel system, to local area network-based
systems, to systems controlled via the Internet, even from
great distances. Complete setup and operating information for
computer-connected AEW systems will be found in the separate
Computer Interface manual provided with AEW-R5200 receivers
and 5000 Series systems.
Transmitters
The versatile AEW-T1000 UniPak™ body-pack transmitter
features a metal case and includes field-replaceable helical and
flexible-wire antennas. It has both low- and high-impedance
inputs plus a bias connection, for use with dynamic and electret
condenser microphones, as well as Hi-Z instrument pickups. In
addition to its programmable functions, the transmitter includes
a three-position sliding control cover to limit access, if desired,
to only the Power/Mute button, or to no controls at all, as
appropriate for the application and/or user.
The handheld microphone/transmitters feature metal-body
construction. Four models are available, incorporating a variety
of capsules from the Artist Elite wired-microphone series
created for professional live-sound venues.
All Artist Elite Series transmitters use two 1.5V AA batteries for
economical operation and wide availability. The receiver and
both transmitters have “fuel gauge” battery condition indicators
with low-battery warnings.
Please note that in multiple-system applications there must be a
transmitter-receiver combination set to a separate frequency for
each input desired (only one transmitter for each receiver).
Because the wireless frequencies are within UHF TV frequency
bands, only certain operating frequencies may be usable in a
particular geographic area. Also, only certain of the available
operating frequencies may be used together. Operating
frequencies and IntelliScan frequency groupings will be found
on pages 29-30. (Use of the IntelliScan channel assignment
system will determine and set appropriate frequencies
automatically.)
Receiver Installation
Location
For best operation the receiver should be at least 3 ft. (1 m)
above the ground and at least 3 ft. away from a wall or metal
surface to minimize reflections. The transmitter should be at
least 3 ft. from the receiver, as shown in Figure A. Keep
antennas away from noise sources such as digital equipment,
motors, automobiles and neon lights, as well as away from
large metal objects.
Output Connections
There are two audio outputs on the back panel: an XLR Mic
Output (25 mV) and a 1/4" (6.3 mm) phone jack Instrument
Output (50 mV). The two isolated audio outputs permit
simultaneous feeds to two different inputs.
AEW-R4100: This receiver offers a balanced XLR Mic jack and
an unbalanced Instrument 1/4" TS phone jack. Output levels of
both are adjusted by the rear-panel Attenuator (ATTN) switch.
AEW-R5200: Since there are two independent channels of
receiver in the AEW-R5200, there are two sets of output jacks.
All audio outputs on the AEW-R5200 are transformer-isolated
and balanced. The ground connections of both outputs on each
receiver channel may be interrupted (“lifted”) by use of their
associated Ground Lift switch. This permits feeding mixers
with different ground levels without an additional external splitter. The Instrument output is a balanced 1/4" TRS jack with “audio
+” on the Tip, “audio –” on the Ring and ground (shield) on the
Sleeve. The rear-panel Attenuator (ATTN) switch for each
receiver channel adjusts levels of both outputs in its channel.
Use the appropriate shielded audio cable for connections
between the receiver and the input(s) of the mixer or other
8 equipment.
Antennas
Attach a pair of UHF antennas to the antenna input jacks. The
antennas are normally positioned in the shape of a “V” (both
45° from vertical) for best reception. In addition to rotating at
the connector, the included half-wave antennas pivot from
straight to right-angle.
Antennas can be remotely located from the receiver. However,
due to signal loss in cables at UHF frequencies, use the lowestloss RF cables practical for any cable runs over 25 feet. RG8type is a good choice. Use only copper-shielded cable, not
CATV-type foil-shielded wire. Audio-Technica offers auxiliary
antennas, and quality RF cables in four lengths; see the
Optional System Accessories section on page 28.
Antenna Power
The antenna input jacks also can provide +12V DC output on
their center pins to power inline RF devices. A maximum of 20
mA can be drawn from each of the jacks. While an accidental
short-circuit will not harm the internal 12V supply, make certain
that an antenna cable shield does not contact the center
conductor. Antenna Power (“ANT.PWR”) is selected (switched
on or off) from the LCD menu. (On the AEW-R5200, Antenna
Power will be found in the menu on Channel 1 only.)
Figure A
Receiver Installation
Front-mount Antennas
AEW-R4100: Provision has been made to move the antenna
jacks from the rear to the front of the receiver. However,
because this involves opening the receiver case and exposing
AC power circuitry, instructions are not included in this manual.
A qualified service technician must perform this modification.
AEW-R5200: BNC-to-BNC connectors and jumper cables are
included with the unit to permit mounting antennas on the front
panel.
• BNC-BNC through-panel connectors: Remove the nut and
lock-washer from each connector. Install the connectors
from the front into the two panel holes. Note that the flat
on the threaded section must be aligned with the flat in
each panel hole. Secure each connector from the back with
its lock-washer and nut, tightening the nut firmly.
• BNC-BNC cable jumpers: Connect the jumpers to the rear
antenna jacks first; then attach them to the BNC connectors
on the front panel. Make certain the bayonet twist-rings are
fully latched on the connectors at both ends.
Headphone Jack
A headphone jack on the front panel provides monitoring of the
receiver’s output. The 1/4" TRS jack is intended for use with
stereo headphones. The Phones Level control affects the
headphone jack only. Note: On an operating unit, be careful
not to press the Power switch accidentally when inserting a
headphone jack or adjusting the headphone level. In addition
to interrupting receiver operation, even a momentary loss of
power to a single unit within a linked multi-channel system will
cause the loss of linking connection to the affected receiver and
all those “downstream” from it.
AEW-R5200: Press and release the Phones Level control knob
to switch headphone monitoring from Channel 1 to Channel 2
and back again. Small, lighted indicators just above the knob
show which receiver channel is being monitored.
Power Connections
The switching power supply is designed to operate properly
from any AC power source 100–240V, 50/60 Hz without user
adjustment. Simply connect the receiver to a standard AC
power outlet, using only an IEC-type input cordset approved
for the country of use. Power to the unit is controlled by the
front-panel Power switch.
AEW-R5200: An auxiliary AC “jumper” (pass-through) outlet is
provided on the rear panel, and a ”jumper” power cordset is
included, to simplify power connections by “daisy-chaining”
an array of AEW-R5200’s. Maximum output from the auxiliary
outlet is 5 Amperes, which will easily handle a full complement
of AEW-R5200 units.
(Continued)
All AEW receivers in a linked multi-channel system should be
interconnected with included link cables. When the system is
properly configured, the “slave” units will “link data in” to the
“Master” unit. (See Figure B for an example.)
1. First, decide which receiver will be the “Master” unit.
Connect a link cable to the Link In jack only. (In an
AEW-R5200, the Channel 1 unit is the Master and Channel 2
becomes the first “slave.”)
2. Connect the free end of the link cable from the Master unit
(in #1 above) to the Link Out jack of the desired “next” unit.
3. Connect one end of a new link cable to the Link In jack of
the unit in #2 above.
4. Connect the free end of the link cable from the unit in #2
above to the Link Out jack of the desired “next” unit.
5. Continue this process of “daisy-chaining” the system’s
receivers together with link cables. The “last” unit in the
system will have a cable connected to its Link Out jack, but
no connection to its Link In jack.
Installing link cables starting with the last slave unit and working
toward the Master unit is also acceptable practice.
The attachment order of link cables establishes the numerical
order of the receivers in the multi-channel system, from the
selected Master unit through all the slave units. (In the case of
AEW-R5200 receivers, a unit’s Channel 1 always comes before
its Channel 2.) In a multi-channel system that includes both
models of receivers, it’s common practice to position all the
AEW-R5200 units first in the chain; followed any AEW-R4100
units.
Note 1: For the receiver linking to work, all receivers in the
system must have AC power applied at the same time, or the
Master receiver must be turned on last.
Note 2: In addition, if AC power is interrupted or a link connection is broken at any receiver in a linked system, even for an
instant, receivers from that unit onward are no longer linked to
the system. When all power and linking have been restored, the
system must be restarted by turning all the receivers Off,
then On (all turned on simultaneously, or the Master receiver
must be turned on last). This will re-initialize the system and
re-establish all the data links.

Receiver Installation
Ethernet connections (AEW-R5200): An RJ-45 jack on the
rear panel of each AEW-R5200 provides an Ethernet 10 BaseT
data/control connection from both of its channels to an external
computer system. Data monitored includes actual, real-time
“RF” and “AF” levels for receiver channels with direct Ethernet
connections to the associated computer. All other linked
receivers in a system supply control-function access and all their
data – except for “RF” and “AF” levels – to the
computer connected to the Master receiver.
(Continued)
Other than being able to “see” the “RF” and “AF” levels, all
functions of all receivers in a linked system can be
monitored and controlled from the computer connected to the
Master receiver.
Details of the computer setup and operation will be found in
a separate AEW Control Interface manual provided with
AEW-R5200 receivers and 5000 Series systems.
Multiple AEW-R5200 receivers in a system can each provide
real-time “RF” and “AF” levels to the associated computer if
each AEW-R5200 has its own Ethernet connection, through an
Ethernet hub, to the computer.

Receiver Controls and Functions
Receiver Controls
Power On/Off
Press the power switch to turn the receiver on. After a short
power-up sequence, the display shows the operating frequency
and the alert light is illuminated (if no active transmitters are
present on this frequency). The receiver may also display a
system position (i.e., “MASTER”, “SLV-#”) or an assigned
transmitter or receiver name (if this feature has been set
up—the display recalls the setting from the last time power
was applied). Refer to page 16 on setting up receiver names or
page 20 on setting up transmitter names.
Level
This control is used to set a comfortable listening level for the
headphone jack. Turn the control clockwise to increase the
level.
LCD Window
The LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) window provides visual
indication of key operating and configuration parameters.
It is also used in conjunction with the Mode/Set and Up/Down
arrow buttons to change user-configurable functions.
Alert Light (LED)
The alert light illuminates to indicate to the user that something
needs attention; for example, the transmitter batteries are low,
or the transmitter is muted or turned off. Refer to page 10 for a
complete description of alert light indications.
Mode/Set Button
The Mode/Set button has different functions depending on the
status of the receiver. Two distinct operations are associated
with this button:
Touch: A momentary press of the Mode/Set button. It is
used to enter Menu mode, to enter Edit mode, or to Escape
without making any changes to current settings.
Hold: A press and hold (about two seconds) of the Mode/Set
button. It is used to accept a new setting when the receiver
is in Edit mode or to save the current settings to one of the
five user-defined name presets or the internal memory
location (“NAME?”).
Up/Down Arrow Buttons
The Up/Down arrow buttons are used in conjunction with the
Mode/Set button to scroll through the function menu in Menu
mode or through the available choices for a given function in
Edit mode.
When the receiver is in normal operating mode, the Up/Down
arrow buttons scroll through Receiver Address (“MASTER” or
“SLV-#”), Receiver Preset Name, or Transmitter Preset Name.
How to change receiver settings
Enter Menu mode
With the receiver in the normal operating mode, touch the
Mode/Set button. The top line of the receiver display shows
“FRQ” preceded by one, two, or three asterisks.
Touch the Up/Down arrow buttons to scroll through the
available functions that may be changed. (See the chart on
page 17 for a list of functions and display indication.) Note
that the display’s lower line indicates the current setting for
a given function.

(Continued)
Enter Edit mode
When the function to be edited is displayed, touch the
Mode/Set button. The small word “EDIT” flashes in the
bottom of the display, indicating Edit mode.
Touch the Up/Down arrow buttons to scroll through the
available choices for the function, stopping on the desired
choice.
Hold the Mode/Set button to accept the new choice.
“STORED” appears in the display when the choice is
accepted. The receiver then reverts to Menu mode.
Continue this process until all desired function-setting changes
are complete.
Note: To escape from Edit mode without making any changes,
touch the Mode/Set button. “ESCAPE” appears briefly in the
display, and the receiver reverts to Menu mode.
Quitting and saving changes
The receiver has several methods of saving function settings.
Each receiver has five loadable user presets that may be given
individual names (up to six characters), along with a special,
non-loadable memory location called “NAME?” that can store
the most recent settings until they are changed.
To save a set of receiver function settings, use the Up/Down
arrow buttons to scroll until the display shows “QUIT.” The
procedure for saving the current settings depends upon the
desired location:
Saving to the “NAME?” location
If the current receiver settings do not need to be identified with
a name, the special “NAME?” location may be used to store
them. As with the “last number redial” function on a telephone,
these settings remain stored in the receiver even if power
is turned off. They disappear only if one of the settings is
modified.
To store settings in the “NAME?” location, touch the Mode/Set
button. The display shows “NAME?” for the receiver name.
Saving updated settings to the currently loaded user
“PRESET#” location
To update the receiver settings in the currently loaded user
preset that is already named, hold the Mode/Set button. The
display shows “STORE XXXXXX” (where XXXXXX indicates
the preset’s name).
Hold the Mode/Set button a second time. The first character
of the name flashes.
Hold the Mode/Set button a third time. The display briefly
shows “STORED”, and the receiver reverts to normal operation.
Receiver Controls and Functions
(Continued)
Saving to a different user PRESET# location
To store settings to a different user preset location, hold the
Mode/Set button. The receiver shows “STORE XXXXXX”
(where XXXXXX indicates the loaded preset’s name).
Receiver Locks
Programmable locks restrict the ability to change receiver
settings, reducing the possibility of unauthorized access or unintended changes during performances.
Touch the Up/Down buttons to scroll to another preset location
(the display shows the user-defined name for each location, or
“PRESET#” if no name has been assigned).

Mode/Set button at any time during the naming process while
the cursor is flashing will store the setting and return the
receiver to normal operation.
Note: To escape the naming process, touch the Mode/Set
button repeatedly until the last character is flashing, and then
touch the Mode/Set button again to escape. At the flashing
“ESCAPE” display, touch the Mode/Set button to go back to
the beginning of the name, or hold the Mode/Set button to
return to “QUIT.”
Note: While the receiver is in Edit mode, no action
(no buttons pressed) for approximately 30 seconds causes
the receiver to revert to Menu mode.
While the receiver is in Menu mode, no action for
approximately 30 seconds causes the receiver to revert
to normal operating mode. Any setting changes stored will
remain in the “NAME?” memory location, and the receiver
will display “NAME?” because the settings were not saved
to a user preset. This will occur even if a user preset was
previously loaded.
Receiver Functions
IntelliScan™ Channel Assignment System
The IntelliScan™ channel assignment system, provided on both
the AEW-R4100 and AEW-R5200 receivers, eliminates the
trouble and frustration normally encountered while attempting
to find and select usable, compatible frequencies in a multichannel system. The Artist Elite receivers are simply connected
together with included communication link cables. A “Master”
receiver then “knows” how many total channels it is looking
for. It can scan the available frequencies, checking for local
interference sources, selecting a group of channels that will
all work together (using a built-in frequency plan), and automatically setting the other linked AEW receivers accordingly. Once
this procedure is completed, the transmitter frequencies must
be set to match the receiver frequencies.
When any lock condition is applied to a receiver (ALL., RX. or
PC.), the LCD window displays a small “RX LOCK” just to the
right of the frequency. If an action is attempted that currently is
locked out, the LCD will briefly display “LOCKED”, then return
to its previously displayed contents.
Note: Locks remain in place even when receiver power is
turned off. However, locks may be removed by using the Menu.
Antenna Power
This function turns on the 12V AC antenna power for use with
powered antennas or accessories.
Digital Tone Lock™ Squelch
The Artist Elite Series employs a unique digital Tone Lock
squelch system that provides enhanced rejection of interference. In addition to providing highly effective control of
unwanted noise, the Tone Lock signal from the transmitter
also conveys data with the transmitter’s name (Tx Name),
battery condition, mute status and lock status back to the
receiver for display. In addition to displaying in the receiver’s
LCD window, the data are also displayed on an Ethernetconnected computer.
The squelch level is adjustable in fifteen 2 dB steps, providing
a 30 dB range. Increasing the squelch level – also called
“tightening the squelch” – can cause a reduction in usable
range of the wireless transmitter, so use the lowest value that
reliably mutes the unwanted RF signals. (If interference is a
problem, first consider trying a different frequency, either
manually or by scanning.)
15
Receiver Controls and Functions
Meter Hold
When activated (“METER HOLD”), this function permits the bar
meters in the LCD window to capture and display the highestlevel “AF” audio modulation (a solid bar) and the lowest-level
“RF” signal (a flashing bar) received from the transmitter. This
is particularly useful when setting up the system initially,
performing a sound-check, or diagnosing operating problems.
The default setting is Off (“METER NORMAL”).
When the Meter Hold is On, it is possible to reset it – to obtain
a new set of RF and AF readings – without turning it off-and-on
using the Menu/Edit functions. Simply press the transmitter’s
Power/Mute button once (to mute the transmitter) and wait
until the receiver’s Alert light comes on, indicating the Mute
condition. Then press the transmitter’s Power/Mute button
once again, to un-mute the transmitter. After the Alert light
goes out, a new set of min/max RF/AF readings will be
indicated on the bar meters. (Note that, depending upon the
digital updating-and-confirming sequence of the Mute condition
data from the transmitter, it can take from a few to many
seconds for the Alert light condition to change. The Meter Hold
readings are not reset until the Alert light has turned on,
then off.)
Note: Any or all of these receiver functions may be stored to, or
loaded from, one of the five user presets.
Using "PRESET" Store and Recall
There are two aspects to Preset operation: Storing a particular
collection of settings for future use (“STORE”), and recalling a
stored collection of settings (“LOAD”). All Artist Elite receivers
and transmitters permit the storing and recalling of up to five
user-defined Preset combinations—with customized names, if
desired—plus the recalling of the factory-defined Default
(“DEF”) settings.
While the standard Preset names (“PRSET1” – “PRSET5”) can
be used, customized receiver and transmitter identification can
simplify system operation, especially in larger systems. For
example, a guitar channel’s Rx Name could be “GUITAR”, while
the transmitters for the performer’s two different guitars could
be named “GTR-1” and “GTR-2”.
To store Preset configurations:
1. Touch the Mode/Set button once to move to Menu mode.
2. Touch the Up arrow twice to move to “PRESET” in the LCD
window. (The second line of LCD will show currently loaded
presets.)
3. Touch the Mode/Set button once. “LOAD” (or “STORE”)
appears in the LCD.
4. Touch the Up or Down arrow once, if needed, to change the
selection to “STORE.”
5. Hold the Mode/Set button until “PRSET1” (or the name
of the currently loaded Preset) appears on the second line
of the LCD.
6. If desired, touch the Up or Down arrow to cycle through the
available choices: “PRSET1” through “PRSET5” (or their
previously changed names).

7. Accept or enter a name for the Preset:
a. To accept the standard name “PRSET1“ – “PRSET5” (or
previously stored name) for a new Preset configuration
and to update (overwrite) any previously stored
configuration choices:
a1. At the desired choice, hold Mode/Set until the first
character blinks, giving an opportunity to change the
name.
a2. To accept the standard (or existing) name, hold the
Mode/Set button again until “STORED” appears in the
window. This stores the standard or existing Preset
name with the associated function choices and returns
the unit to normal operation. The name of the stored
preset will appear in the top line of the display.
b. To enter a custom name for a Preset:
b1. At the desired choice, hold the Mode/Set button.
The first character blinks.
b2. Using the Up or Down arrow, move through the
available characters (see box below) until the desired
character is reached. Touch an arrow button for single
steps, or hold it down to scroll through the characters
at increasing speed.
b3. Touch the Mode/Set button once to accept the first
character and move to the second character, which now
is blinking. Use an Up/Down arrow button to find the
desired second character; touch the Mode/Set button
once to accept it and move to the third position. Repeat
this selection process until the character for the sixth
position has been selected.
b4. Once the sixth character has been selected as desired,
hold the Mode/Set button until “STORED” appears in
the window. This stores the custom Name with the
associated function choices and returns the unit to
normal operation. The display shows the custom name
in the top line.
Note: If a correction or change is desired while entering
characters, simply touch the Mode/Set button once when
the sixth (last) character has been reached. The window will
flash “ESCAPE.” Touch the Mode/Set button once more to
start the name-entry process over at the first character. (To
leave any characters as they are, simply touch Mode/Set
once to skip over them.)

Transmitter Controls and Functions
Refer to Figures H through Q for an overview of transmitter
functions and controls.
Power On/Off
To turn the transmitter on, hold the Power/Mute button until
the red power indicator and the LCD window come on (about
1–2 seconds). The operating frequency shows in the window
after the power-up sequence.
Touch: A momentary press of the Mode/Set button. It is
used to enter Menu mode, to enter Edit mode, or to Escape
without making any changes to current settings.
To turn the transmitter off, hold the Power/Mute button again,
until the red power indicator and the LCD window are
extinguished (about 1–2 seconds). The LCD window shows
“PWR.OFF” before shutdown.
Hold: A press and hold (about two seconds) of the Mode/Set
button. It is used to accept a new setting when the receiver
is in Edit mode or to save the current settings to one of the
five user-defined name presets or the internal memory
location (“NAME?”).
Mute On/Off
When the transmitter is muted, it produces RF with no audio
signal modulation. When the transmitter is un-muted, it
produces both RF and audio.
LCD Window
The Liquid Crystal Display presents a great deal of setup and
operating information clearly and conveniently (Figure H). The
LCD in the transmitters is designed for greatest contrast and
best viewing with the window rotated somewhat away from
the viewer (about 30 degrees), not straight-on, for a more
convenient holding/viewing position.
To mute the transmitter (cut off the audio, but continue the RF
output), touch the Power/Mute button once. A small “MUTE”
appears in the LCD window, just below the frequency (Figure
H-2).
To un-mute the transmitter (restore the audio), touch the
Power/Mute button once again. The “MUTE” disappears from
the LCD window.
Power/Mute Button
The transmitters have a combination Power and Mute switch
(Figure J/K). When used in combination with the programmed
choices explained below, the various functions available to the
transmitter user may be tailored to fit personal preferences or
particular situations.

Power/Mute Locks
Programmable Power/Mute Locks limit the functioning of the
Power/Mute button as desired for particular users and/or
applications. Power can be locked On; Mute can be locked
Off. Selection of the desired locks, if any, is made through the
function menu:
Setting
Description
NO.LOC
The normal Power and Mute functions are
fully operational.
ALL.LOC
Power is locked On and Mute is locked Off
when “ALL.LOC” is applied. When in the
ALL.LOC mode, the transmitter may be
turned off by (1) re-accessing the .LOC
Menu and changing the setting, (2) pressing
and holding the Up arrow button and the Set
button at the same time, until the power
goes off, or (3) removing and re-installing
the batteries. When the transmitter is turned
on again, it will power up in the NO.LOC
mode.
MUT.LOC
In this mode, the audio cannot be muted
(Mute function is locked Off). The Power
functioning is unaffected.
“Mute” Note: If ALL.LOC or MUT.LOC is
applied while the transmitter is muted,
pressing the Power/Mute button once will
return the transmitter to un-muted operation;
thereafter the Mute function is disabled
(Mute Off) until the .LOC setting is changed
again.
PWR.LOC
Power is locked On when “PWR.LOC” is
applied. The Mute functioning is unaffected.
When in the PWR.LOC mode, the transmitter
may be turned off by: (1) Re-accessing the
.LOC Menu and changing the setting,
(2) Pressing and holding the Up arrow button
and the Set button at the same time, until
the power goes off, or (3) Removing and
re-installing the batteries. When the
transmitter is turned on again, it will power
up in the NO.LOC mode.
Note: Only the ALL.LOC or PWR.LOC Power
function will change when batteries are
removed; NO.LOC and MUT.LOC settings
remain stored in memory.
(Continued)
Audio Input Selector
The UniPak™ body-pack transmitter provides input connections
for both low-impedance (Lo-Z) microphones and highimpedance (Hi-Z) instruments. A wide range of Audio-Technica
Wireless Essentials® microphones and cables is available
pre-terminated with the appropriate professional latching
connector. (See page 28.)
Selection of the desired input – microphone or instrument – is
made through the function menu. Depending upon the input
selected, a small “MIC” or “INST” will continue to show in
the LCD window, just below the frequency. (In the handheld
transmitters, “MIC” will always show in the LCD window.)
Setting Audio Input Level
AEW-T1000 UniPak: A 10-position audio input gain setting,
selected through the function menu, serves to match the audio
input level to the transmitter for best modulation with minimum
distortion. Available choices are +12 dB to –6 dB in 2 dB steps.
The default value is +6 dB.
AEW-T4100 and AEW-T6100 Dynamic Handhelds:
A 4-position audio input gain setting, selected through the
function menu, serves to match the audio input level to the
transmitter for best modulation with minimum distortion.
Available choices are +12 dB to –6 dB in 6 dB steps. The
default value is +6 dB.
AEW-T3300 and AEW-T5400 Condenser Handhelds:
A 3-position audio input gain setting, selected through the
function menu, serves to match the audio input level to the
transmitter for best modulation with minimum distortion.
Available choices are +12 dB, +6 dB and 0 dB. The default
value is +6 dB. In addition, a mechanical pad switch on the
condenser capsule (inside the screw-on wire mesh grille) can
provide another 6 dB of attenuation. For best performance,
adjust the input level using the function menu choices, keeping
the capsule’s mechanical switch at 0 dB. If more audio attenuation is needed than the menu provides, then set the capsule’s
pad switch to –6 dB.
For all transmitters: Select the highest audio level setting that
does not result in over-modulation with the highest audio/
instrument input levels (an AF indication on the receiver no
higher than “+3”); watch the receiver’s “AF” meter “+6”
indication and the Alert light to make certain they are not
triggered often by the highest audio levels.
The transmitter’s red LED power indicator, which is on during
normal operation, will blink off if the peak audio input reaches
overload level.
If an action is attempted that currently is locked out, the
transmitter LCD will briefly display “LOC.KED”, then return to
its previously displayed contents.
Whenever any lock condition is applied to a transmitter, its
associated receiver will display a small “TX LOCK” in the LCD
window, just to the right of the frequency.

Transmitter Setup
Battery Selection and Installation
Each transmitter uses two 1.5V AA batteries, not included.
Alkaline type is recommended. Always replace both batteries.
Make certain the transmitter power is Off before replacing
batteries.
UniPak™ Transmitter Battery Installation
1. Open the battery compartment door by sliding the catch
down (Figure L). (If no batteries are inside, the door will not
spring open by itself.)
2. Observe correct polarity as marked on the metal contacts
on the door and carefully insert two fresh 1.5V AA alkaline
batteries (Figure M).
3. Close the door, making certain the latch clicks securely in
place.
Handheld Transmitter Battery Installation
1. While holding the lower body cover (near the LCD window),
grasp the upper part of the transmitter body just below the
grille and unscrew it at least four complete turns (Figure N);
then slide the lower body cover down until it stops (Figure P).
Once the cover has been lowered, turn the transmitter over
to reveal the battery compartment on the side opposite the
LCD window.
2. Observe correct polarity as marked inside the battery
compartment and carefully insert two fresh 1.5V AA alkaline
batteries (Figure Q). Insert the first battery and slide it down.
Then insert the second battery, bottom first, into the space
remaining. Make certain the batteries are fully seated in the
battery compartment.
3. Slide the lower body cover back up the body, then screw the
housing together. Do not overtighten.
Figure L
Note: Remove batteries from the handheld transmitter starting
at the bottom (– end) of the top battery (Figure Q). The top
(+ end) of the top battery is captured in a recess and will not
come straight out.
▼
Battery Condition Indicator
After the batteries are installed, turn the power on by pressing
and holding the Power/Mute button. The small red power-on
LED (see Figure J/K on page 18.) should light and the LCD
window should come on. If this does not happen, the batteries
are installed incorrectly or they are dead. The transmitter’s “fuel
gauge” battery indicator displays a maximum of four bar
segments. When the LCD flashes “LOW.BAT”, the batteries
should be replaced immediately to ensure continued operation.
(The receiver also displays the transmitter’s battery condition in
the LCD window with bar segments; the Alert indicator and a
flashing “LOW.BAT” come on to warn of a low-battery
condition.)

Transmitter Setup
UniPak Transmitter Input Connection
Connect an audio input device (microphone or guitar cable)
to the audio input jack on the bottom of the transmitter. A
number of Audio-Technica professional microphones and cables
are available separately, pre-terminated with a UniPak input
connector (see “Optional System Accessories” on page 28).
The cable connector latches automatically when inserted into
the transmitter jack. To unlatch and remove the connector,
simply pull up on the connector’s knurled metal collar.
UniPak Transmitter Antenna
The AEW-T1000 transmitter includes two field-replaceable
antennas. A flexible-wire antenna is supplied mounted on the
transmitter, while a separate short, helical antenna is supplied
with the accessories. Either antenna simply screws into the
transmitter’s antenna fitting. Check the installed antenna
occasionally to make certain it is snugly attached (only fingertight). The helical antenna is more convenient physically but
may not have the operating range of the wire antenna. The
wire antenna should hang down, at its full length, from the
bottom of the transmitter. If the received signal is marginal,
experiment with different transmitter positions on your body
or instrument; try the wire antenna; or try repositioning the
receiver. Do not attempt to modify either transmitting
antenna. Replace them only with the same parts, available
from the Audio-Technica Service Department.
(Continued)
Handheld Transmitter Antenna
The antenna for the handheld mic/transmitter is in the black,
non-metallic section at the bottom of the unit (see Figure K on
page 18). For best results, hold the mic/transmitter naturally,
around its painted metal case. Holding or otherwise covering
the antenna housing may reduce operating range.
UniPak Transmitter Mounting Clip
The UniPak transmitter’s mounting clip may be installed with
the case positioned either “up” or “down,” depending upon
which is preferred for the particular application. To turn the clip
around, spring the ends of the clip out of the two holes on the
sides of the transmitter case (see Figure J on page 18) and
reinstall it facing in the opposite direction.
23
System Operation
Artist Elite wireless receivers and transmitters are extremely
versatile components with many operating features and
functions, some of which are not obvious. As a result, we
suggest the following approaches to assure a “comfort level”
with any new equipment:
1. Begin using a single receiver/transmitter pair at their Default
(“DEF”) settings, to become familiar with equipment
functions and operation before doing any customizing.
(If the Default frequency is not usable in your area, change
the frequency to one that is suitable.)
2. Before installing/starting up a large multi-channel system,
explore the functions and operation of only two or three
receiver/transmitter pairs together.
The details of setting up and operating a multi-channel
system vary greatly in complexity, depending upon the
number of receivers and nature of the system. Because the
feature-rich nature of AEW units can greatly increase this
complexity, we suggest starting with a simpler, straightforward setup and use to become familiar with the
equipment and its capabilities.
Single AEW-R4100 receiver system:
Begin using a receiver and transmitter at their Default
(“DEF”) settings, to become familiar with equipment
functions and operation before doing any customizing.
(If the Default frequency is not usable in your area,
manually change only the frequency to one that is
suitable.)
Single AEW-R5200 receiver system (two channels):
Start out using only Channel 1, treating this the same as
the single AEW-R4100 above.
Multiple-receiver system with link cables only:
The link cables provide data and control between
receivers. The IntelliScan™ feature scans for clear channels
and assigns non-conflicting frequencies to all linked
receivers. (If IntelliScan is not used, the receiver
frequencies may all be set individually/manually, as with
any standard receiver, selecting frequencies that are
within the same IntelliScan groups listed on page 30.)
Multiple-receiver system with Ethernet-connected
computer interface:
Refer to the separate AEW Control Interface manual for
setup and operation of a computer-based system. Basic
hardware aspects of the receivers, and all transmitter
setup/operating information, are in the manual you are
now reading.
Basic Operation – Single AEW-R4100 receiver system:
Turn down the AF Level of the mixer or amplifier. Switch on the
receiver. Do not switch on the transmitter yet.
Turning on the Receiver
The Alert indicator and the LCD window lights up; the normal
operation LCD display appears after 1–2 seconds. If any of the
bars show in the “RF” bar-graph meters, there may be RF
interference in the area. If this occurs, select another frequency
as explained below. (If the Meter Hold function has been
selected, one of the RF bars in each column will be flashing,
indicating the lowest RF levels received.)
24
Selecting/Setting Receiver Frequency
Selection of the desired operating frequency is made through
the function menus. There must be no local interference on that
frequency. If the Default frequency (lowest in band) happens not
to be usable, the receiver frequency may be set manually, or by
using the IntelliScan function.
• Manual frequency selection: Adjust the receiver frequency
as detailed in the next section.
• IntelliScan frequency selection: The receiver’s IntelliScan
function may be employed to select a usable operating
frequency automatically, as detailed in the section following
on page 25.
Note: Once the receiver frequency is set, the associated
transmitter must be set manually to the receiver’s exact
frequency. See page 26 for the correct procedure.
Setting Receiver Frequency Manually
Touch: A momentary press of the Mode/Set button. It is
used to enter Menu mode, to enter Edit mode, or to Escape
without making any changes to current settings.
Hold: A press and hold (about two seconds) of the Mode/Set
button. It is used to accept a new setting when the receiver
is in Edit mode or to save the current settings to one of the
five user-defined name presets or the internal memory
location (“NAME?”).
1. Touch the Mode/Set button once. “FRQ” appears on the first
line of the LCD window with the current frequency setting on
the second line. (The receiver is now in Menu mode.)
2. Touch the Mode/Set button again. The small flashing word
“EDIT” appears at the bottom of the window. (The receiver
is now in Edit mode.)
3. Use the Up/Down arrow buttons to change the frequency.
Touch either arrow for single steps, or hold either arrow for
rapid cycling through the band. Frequencies “wrap around”
to the other end of the range when the top or bottom of the
band is reached. Choose a frequency appropriate for your
area, avoiding frequencies with active TV channels. (See the
frequency listings on pages 29 and 30.)
Note: The top line of the LCD indicates when frequencies
belong to IntelliScan groups. Asterisks (*) are displayed in front
of “FRQ” to indicate membership in one of more of the three
groups (Figure R on page 25). See page 30 for frequency group
listings.
4. To choose this frequency, hold the Mode/Set button until the
word “STORED” appears in the receiver’s window. (If you do
not wish to complete this selection, touch the Mode/Set
button once. The word “ESCAPE” appears briefly in the
window, and the receiver returns to Menu mode.)
5. When finished entering a frequency, touch the Up arrow
button once. The display reads “QUIT.”
There are several ways to quit, depending on whether the
current Name is to be retained or the frequency stored to a
user preset. See page 14 for help with Quitting and saving
changes.
To quickly store the new frequency into the “NAME?”
location, touch the Mode/Set button. The receiver shows
“NAME?” in the top line and the new frequency in the
bottom line.
Note: You must now set the transmitter to the exact same
frequency for the system to operate!

Setting Receiver Frequency Using IntelliScan
Single-receiver systems (either an AEW-R4100 or
an AEW-R5200):
Turn down the AF level of the associated mixer or amplifier.
Make certain that any AEW transmitters are turned off. (Other
RF-generating devices in the area should be turned on, if
possible.)
1. Touch the Mode/Set button once to enter the Menu mode.
(On an AEW-R5200, use Channel 1 to perform the
IntelliScan for both channels.)
2. Touch the Down arrow once. The display shows “SCAN.”
3. Hold the Mode/Set button to start the scan. The second line
displays “------” during the scan and then briefly displays
“SCAN OK” when the scan is successfully completed.
4. The display on the receiver then shows “RESET NAMES.”
The receiver remains in this state (system is muted) until one
of the following steps is completed:
a. To accept and use this frequency with the currently
loaded/named preset, touch the Mode/Set button. The LCD
briefly displays “STORED” and reverts to normal operation.
At this point, the display shows the receiver name/preset
currently loaded. (Note: This frequency is now stored with
the associated named preset and is recalled when that
preset is reloaded.)
b. To accept and use this frequency and store it in the special
“NAME?” location, hold the Mode/Set button. The LCD
displays “NAME?” on the top line. (Note: Doing this allows
a new frequency to be used without affecting previously
stored preset data. However, the receiver shows “NAME?”
instead of the preset’s name.)
To store this frequency along with other settings into one of
the user presets, refer to the instructions on page 15.
IMPORTANT! If one of the above steps (a or b) is not
completed, the receiver will remain in the “RESET NAMES”
state indefinitely (system is muted), and it will not automatically
back out to normal operating mode.
(Continued)
Multiple-receiver systems:
Turn down the AF level of the associated mixer or amplifier.
Make certain that any AEW transmitters are turned off. (Other
RF-generating devices in the area should be turned on, if
possible.)
1. Make certain all the receivers are connected (daisy-chained)
with link cables. The receiver with only a Link In (no Link Out
connection) becomes the Master receiver. (See “Link
connections” on page 9.)
2. Switch on all the slave receivers first; switch on the Master
receiver last. Alternatively, all receivers can be turned on
simultaneously, as when using AC power plug strips
controlled by a single AC switch. (If an AC power or link
connection is interrupted, even briefly, all receivers must be
turned off and the power-up sequence repeated to assure
complete system control.)
3. Using controls on the Master receiver, follow all the steps
listed for single-receiver systems to assign compatible
frequencies for all receivers by using IntelliScan.
4. The display on the Master shows “RESET NAMES”, and the
display on each slave shows “SCAN” and the new frequency.
The receivers remain in this state (system is muted) until one
of the following steps is completed to accept the new
frequency plan:
a. To accept and use this frequency plan with the currently
loaded/named presets, touch the Mode/Set button. If a
user preset was previously loaded on the receiver, the LCD
briefly displays “STORED” and reverts to normal operation.
The LCD then displays the previously loaded user preset or
receiver name and the new frequency. (Note: This
frequency is now stored with the associated named preset
and is recalled when that preset is reloaded.) If no user
preset was loaded (i.e., the default settings were in effect),
the LCD shows “NAME?” and the new frequency.
b. To accept and use this frequency and store it in the special
“NAME?” location, hold the Mode/Set button. The LCD
displays “NAME?” on the top line. (Note: Doing this allows
a new frequency to be used without affecting previously
stored preset data. However, the receiver shows “NAME?”
instead of the preset’s name.)
To store this frequency along with other settings into one of the
user presets, refer to the instructions on page 15.
Note: These changes affect all linked receivers.
IMPORTANT! If one of the above steps (a or b) is not
completed, the Master and all linked slave receivers will remain
in the “RESET NAMES” state indefinitely (system is muted) and
will not automatically back out to normal operating mode.
Note: A “SCAN ERROR” message may be attributable to one
or more of the following:
• The link connection was broken somewhere in the chain.
• The power to one or more of the linked receivers was turned
off.
• Not enough available frequencies existed for IntelliScan to
assign all receivers a frequency.
If IntelliScan cannot locate enough available frequencies, it will
set as many as it can on the linked receivers.
25
System Operation
Turning on the Transmitter
Turn on the transmitter by holding the Power/Mute button (see
Figure J/K on page 18) for a second or two, until the red power
indicator and the LCD window have come on. (When using a
handheld transmitter, unscrew and slide down the lower body
cover, as shown in Figures N/P on page 22.)
Setting Transmitter Frequency
Touch: A momentary press of the Mode/Set button. It is
used to enter Menu mode, to enter Edit mode, or to Escape
without making any changes to current settings.
Hold: A press and hold (about two seconds) of the Mode/Set
button. It is used to accept a new setting when the receiver
is in Edit mode or to save the current settings to one of the
five user-defined name presets or the internal memory
location (“NAME?”).
1. Touch the Set button once. The small word “MENU” appears
above the frequency. Touch the Set button again and
the small flashing word “EDIT” appears to the right of
“MENU.” (The actual frequency flashes twice, then “EDIT”
continues to flash.)
2. Use the Up/Down arrow buttons to change the transmitter
frequency. Touch either arrow for single steps, or hold down
either arrow for rapid cycling through the range. Frequencies
“wrap around” when the top or bottom of the band is
reached. Select the exact frequency displayed on the
receiver.
3. To activate this frequency selection, hold the Set button until
the word “STORED” appears in the transmitter’s window.
(If you do not wish to complete this selection, just touch the
Set button once: the word “ESCAPE” appears briefly in
the window, and the transmitter returns to the Menu mode.)
4. When finished entering a frequency, touch the Up arrow
button once to move to “QUIT.” Then touch the Set button
once to exit the menu. The word “MENU” in the transmitter
window disappears, indicating the return to normal
operation.
5. If desired, assign a standard or custom Preset Name at this
time as described on page 20 (To store Preset configurations),
so this particular configuration can be recalled in the future.
If a new name is not assigned, the transmitter will continue
to operate on this frequency (and with these settings) until
some other change in settings is made.
When the transmitter is switched on and in normal operation,
the receiver’s two “RF” signal-level bar meters will display
from bottom to top, with more bars indicating increased signal
reception. For optimum performance, at least four bars, and
preferably five or more bars, on at least one of the RF indicators
should be displayed at all times.

Setting Levels
Correct adjustment of transmitter audio input, receiver audio
output, and mixer/amplifier input and output levels is important
for optimum system performance.
Setting Transmitter Audio Input Level
Multiple-position audio input gain settings, selected through
the function menu, serve to match the audio input level to the
transmitter for best modulation and highest signal-to-noise ratio
with minimum distortion.
Select the highest setting that does not result in overmodulation with the highest audio/instrument input levels (an AF
indication on the receiver no higher than “+3”); watch the
receiver’s “AF” bar-graph “+6” indication and the Alert light to
make certain that they are not triggered by the highest audio
levels.
Also, the transmitter’s red LED power indicator, which is on
during normal operation, will blink off if the peak audio input
reaches overload level.
Available Level Settings
AEW-T1000 UniPak™: Choices are +12 dB to –6 dB in 2 dB
steps. The default setting is +6 dB.
AEW-T4100/6100 Dynamic Handhelds: Choices are +12 dB,
+6 dB, 0 dB and –6 dB. The default setting is +6 dB.
AEW-T3300/5400 Condenser Handhelds: Choices are +12 dB,
+6 dB and 0 dB. The default setting is +6 dB. A mechanical
switch on the condenser capsule activates a 6 dB pad. For best
performance, adjust the input level using the function menu
choices first, keeping the capsule’s pad switch at 0 dB. If more
audio attenuation is needed, set the capsule’s switch to –6 dB.
RF Power Adjustment
RF power may be set to “RF HI” (35 mW nominal) or “RF
LOW” (10 mW nominal) through the function menu. The default
setting is “RF LOW.” While the Hi setting normally provides
maximum operating range, the Low setting will help extend
battery life. The Low setting may also be preferred when using
multi-channel systems, or when operating very close to the
receiver, to reduce the possibility of interference or overload.
RF Interference
Wireless frequencies are shared with other radio services.
According to Federal Communications Commission regulations,
“Wireless microphone operations are unprotected from
interference from other licensed operations in the band. If any
interference is received by any Government or non-Government
operation, the wireless microphone must cease operation....”
If you need assistance with operation or frequency selection,
please contact your dealer or the Audio-Technica professional
division. Extensive information on using wireless microphones
is also available on the Audio-Technica Web site at
www.audio-technica.com.
