The ATH-R70x is Audio-Technica’s first pair of professional open-back reference headphones. Together with the ATH-M70x, they stand as a flagship model in A-T’s professional headphone lineup. Featuring specially designed drivers and acoustically transparent housings fashioned from aluminum honeycomb mesh, these headphones provide an accurate and natural open-back sound. They also incorporate a new, improved design of our popular 3D wing support system to provide even greater comfort during the prolonged use often required in professional settings. Robust yet lightweight, and equipped with a unique, dual-sided detachable cable that automatically maintains proper stereo orientation (no matter how it’s attached), the R70x headphones are built for lasting comfort, convenience and audio purity.<br/><a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/monitorheadphones/" target="_blank"><b>VISIT THE STUDIO HEADPHONES MICROSITE</b></a>
 

How much amp power do I need?

The impedance on these headphones is 470ohms. Can I use it with a HiRes Digital Audio Player like Fiio X3 directly?

Or do I need an amplifier? If I do, what would be the minimum power rating I would need for the amp?
I recommend trying them with the X3 alone first , as its amplifier is a high-current design.
Otherwise, an amplifier that can supply around 100mW per channel into this impedance should get you all the volume you need. Choose an amplifier that has low output impedance for the best damping and efficiency.

The new Engineered Sound. Contractor-exclusive innovations for every acoustical challenge. And safe haven from Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).<br/>This low-profile omnidirectional condenser boundary microphone is designed for clear, highly intelligible sound reinforcement, professional recording and teleconferencing in table-, ceiling-, or panel-mount applications. The microphone is equipped with a self-contained power module with an XLRM-type output connector, eliminating the need for an external power module. The microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to Audio-Technica’s UniGuard® innovations. Protected by a rugged all-metal case with a two-layer steel mesh grille, the microphone has a 360° pickup angle, and is available in two colors: black (ES945) and white (ES945W).
 

ES945 / LED microphone omnidirectional

I have a few questions regarding this microphone, in the process of designing a new integrated conference room AV
System. Looking for professional sound voice pickup.

Would the ES945 omni-directional pickup pattern be optimal for this table layout (4.5' feet wide x 13' feet long, 14 seated chairs)
I was thinking of deploying a total of 6 individual ES945 microphones, permanently installed down the middle - center of a wood table.
Each seated participant at every 2 chairs, would have 1 mic in front of them at about 2.25' feet away ( 27" inches to edge of table).

Do you think this range is too far for voice pickup? I do not want to rely heavily on the DSP programming for increasing gain.

Verify if wired to a Biamp DSP, they are fully compliant?
Logic to include: Crestron mute, individual mic voice gain increase / decrease, visual indicator lit on microphone if pressed

ES945/LED
Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone with Mute Switch and LED Indicator

Thank You
The ES945/LED will not provide a logic in/out for the Biamp DSP. To achieve remote capabilities over Logic, you would use the AT8657/LED Socket and add the ES945 (non-LED version of the mic) to it as the microphone element.
Will these microphones be used only for conferencing? Will you be trying to provide voice lift / sound reinforcement in the local room?
Six omnidirectional microphones within a 13 foot span is too many microphones. You would have some phase issues. if a person is to be seated at each end of the table, we recommend placing a mic 2.5 feet from each end, then placing a third mic in the center of the table which will be 4 feet from either mic.

Why am I hear music faintly coming from my at-lp120-usb

While recording Poco's Delivering' (Quadraphonic version) on my iMac using CD Spin Doctor via the USB connection, I can faintly hear the music coming from my new at-lp120-usb? What's up with that?
if you are referring to the noise (music) that is coming directly from the record/needle interface (the surface of the record), this is normal. Keep the dust cover closed to minimize the bleed of it into the room.
If this is what you are hearing on playback after recording in Audacity, please contact us by phone so we can go over your setup with you. Our Audio-Solutions Department can be reached by phone at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 Mon. - Fri. between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM (EST).

AT2020 distorts and cuts out at close range.

I am using this mic to record some drums at close range but it gets very distorted and some sounds cut out all together. I have the recording volume set very low and recording level peaks between -6 and -3 dB. Is there something wrong with this mic? I just bought it and have hardly used it at all. I am using Windows 8.1 and Audacity to record.
It appears the mic is getting hit with too much air from the drum, causing the diaphram to bottom out. Do you have a windscreen that you can try over it or a pop filter you can place between it and the drum to experiment with? You can also try turning the mic off-axis slightly and/or backing it away to reduce the amount of the air pressure that is hitting it directly.
Try it on a guitar cabinet. If you DO NOT have the problem when micing the guitar cabinet, the mic is probably ok. If you Do have the problem, send the mic in to be checked.

Replacing cartridge vs needle

I purchased this turntable approx 18months ago. I am no audiophile or turntable expert but I I love The sound of vinyl. How often should I replace the needle for casual use ~ 5hrs per week?
I am using the stock AT95E cartridge at the moment.
Thanks for your help - I am still learning!
Depending how frequently and how well you care for your records and stylus, expect the stylus on the provided AT95E Cartridge to last between 600 and 800 hours (120 to 160 weeks @ 5 hrs per week).

<i>Let the music be...</i><br/>Springing from Audio-Technica’s rich heritage in professional audio, the ATH-MSR7 Over-Ear High-Resolution Audio Headphones are designed to reproduce Hi-Res Audio, allowing users to hear music the way it was intended. The over-ear headphones are outfitted with exclusive 45 mm True Motion Drivers, which utilize lightweight voice coils, a custom-mounted printed circuit board and specially designed diaphragm to improve transient response and minimize sound distortion for rich, detailed audio reproduction.<br/><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0Q6deqlbqv4?list=PLSY8LG6gVbQTUryvlJS5F5LMj1YgjKcP1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br/>The ATH-MSR7 headphones also feature multi-layered air damping technology for extended mid-to-low frequency response. The housings, designed to “mirror” the full shape of the ear, are constructed of an aluminum/magnesium mix, layered to provide a lightweight, rigid structure that reduces unwanted resonance. Three precisely placed vents within these layers work to control air flow and improve dynamics.<br/> <br/>The over-ear headphones’ highly flexible swivel design, with soft, memory foam earpads and headband ensure lasting comfort even during the longest listening sessions. And with three detachable cables (standard 1.2 m (3.9') and 3.0 m (9.8') cables, plus a 1.2 m (3.9') cable with in-line controls and microphone for compatible smartphones and other devices) the ATH-MSR7 can provide Hi-Res Audio anywhere you go. <br/>The ATH-MSR7 is available in black (ATH-MSR7BK) and gun-metal grey <a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/38ef8b91d4f4d4f6/index.html"><b>(ATH-MSR7GM)</b></a>.<br/><big><b>Find out what the reviews are saying about the ATH-MSR7</b></big><br/><b>Sound and Vision Magazine</b> <a href="http://www.soundandvision.com/content/audio-technica-ath-msr7-headphones-review-hi-res-moderate-price" target="_blank">Audio Technica ATH MSR7 Headphones Review: "Hi-Res" Moderate Price</a> <br/><b>InnerFidelity</b> <a href="http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/incisive-audio-technica-ath-msr7" target="_blank">The Incisive Audio Technica ATH-MSR7</a><br/><b>Head-fi.org user twister6</b> <a href="http://www.head-fi.org/products/audio-technica-ath-msr7/reviews/12580" target="_blank">High Resolution audio in Style!!!</a><br/><b>Trusted Reviews</b> <a href="http://www.trustedreviews.com/audio-technica-ath-msr7-review" target="_blank">Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 review</a><br/><big><b>About High-Resolution Audio</b></big><br/>In Brief: The Move to Hi-Res Audio <br/>While many listeners may believe that high-resolution audio came along with the introduction of the Compact Disc in 1982, constraints on the disc’s storage space always prevented CD audio (standardized at 44.1 kHz/16-bit) from fully and completely reproducing the original recorded sound. The advent and subsequent popularity of MP3s only made this problem more pronounced – the necessary compression of these files causes audio information to be lost, thus greatly reducing the audio quality. But with lossless audio file formats, faster Internet speeds, and storage space increasingly easy to come by (and in ever-smaller packages), the push is on to create audio equipment capable of capturing and reproducing true Hi-Res Audio, generally considered to be 96 kHz/24-bit or better. The Hi-Res Audio logo certifies that a product meets the Hi-Res Audio standards. Per these standards, headphones must have transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz. As a producer of these types of audiophile headphones since 1972, Audio-Technica is well-positioned to provide audio solutions that meet the demands of Hi-Res Audio media formats, allowing for the full reproduction of their extended sonic characteristics.

Audio-Technica’s System 10 PRO Rack-Mount digital wireless system provides the same interference-free operation in the 2.4 GHz range (outside TV bands) as the original System 10 wireless system but with expanded features and versatility. The durable half-rack chassis is equipped to house two receiver units that can be operated locally or released from the chassis and mounted remotely (up to 328 feet away) via Ethernet cable. Up to five chassis (10 receiver units) can be linked using the RJ12 cable included with each system, creating a stable, multichannel system with the simultaneous use of up to 10 channels.<br/> <br/>Like all the products in the System 10 wireless family, the PRO Rack-Mount features 24-bit operation, easy setup, clear, natural sound quality, and three levels of diversity assurance: frequency, time, and space. Frequency Diversity sends the signal on two dynamically allocated frequencies for interference-free communication. Time Diversity sends the signal in multiple time slots to maximize immunity to multipath interference. Space Diversity uses two antennas on each transmitter and receiver unit to maximize signal integrity. <br/>Each System 10 PRO Rack-Mount system includes an ATW-RC13 receiver chassis with rack-mount adapters, one or two ATW-RU13 receiver units with corresponding AT8690 receiver unit mounting brackets, a joining plate (for dual-channel systems only), one RJ12 cable, one AC adapter, and one or two ATW-T1001 UniPak® body-pack or ATW-T1002 handheld transmitters, or one of each. Both the receiver chassis and transmitters feature easy-to-read displays.<br/>

Soft protective microphone pouch for wireless transmitters. Included with Artist Elite® wireless transmitters.
 

Does the ATW-T1002 Fit the AT-BG2 Pouch?

The specs are really close for these two items and, due to the diameter of the microphone, I am unsure. Does the ATW-T1002 fit in the AT-BG2 pouch? Thanks.
Yes it does.
