Does the aewt100d or atw-t310 have phantom power

I want to purchase an Audio-Technica U857ALCW Gooseneck mic.
I want to connect this to a wireless belt pack AEWT1000-D or atw-t310.
The U857ALCW Gooseneck mic documentation states "UniPak wireless transmitter provides Phantom power."
But I do not see that the aewt1000-d or atw-t310 has phantom power, but they are a "UniPak".
So I am confused if the aewt1000-d or atw-t310 has phantom power or not?
Either model Transmitter provides bias voltage to power the microphone. The wireless U857ALcW, which is a variation of the wired U857AL, has been specifically designed to operate off the smaller bias voltages provided by our UniPak model bodypack transmitters rather than phantom power like the wired version. The U857ALcW may be used with the ATW-T310 (3000 Series), the AEW-T1000 (4 and 5000 Series) and other UniPak model wireless bodypack Transmitters.

Installanton with Denon AVR 1602/682

This amplifier/receiver had no turntable input. Only digital input is called "optical" I am using the VCR or CD input from the phono line and getting poor sound.
Advice?
Make certain that the turntables internal phono preamplifier is turned on. The phono preamp selector switch is located on the rear of the turntable. If you are connecting the Red and White RCA plugs to anything other than phono jacks (which are specifically for the connection of a turntable) on a stereo amplifier/receiver, the switch should be in the LINE position. Using the VCR or CD input should be fine.
If the switch is in the LINE position and you are still getting poor sound quality, check your tonearm for proper calibration. The stylus may be tracking too heavy. Does the tonearm float perfectly level in mid-air when the counter-weight is rotated clockwise to zero? If it does not, it has not been calibrated correctly and the tracking force (at least as indicated by the black stylus force gauge ring that sits in front of the weight) is not correct. If you need help properly calibrating your tonearm and setting the tracking force, please contact our Audio-Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 for further assistance.

Designed for permanent installation, the U853PM cardioid condenser hanging microphone comes equipped with a wall/ceiling plate power module. The phantom-powered microphone features UniGuard® innovations that offer unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference. It accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine® line cardioid polar patterns. Its 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.
 

How do I plug in my mic

I bought a pro45 condenser mic and when I plugged the attached cord into my sound board and got nothing. is there something I missed, a battery of some kind or another way to connect it? I don't want to send it back if i am doing something wrong with it that can be fixed.
Like all condenser element type microphones, the PRO 45 requires power to operate. The PRO 45 requires phantom power. Phantom power ranging anywhere from 9 to 52V DC is acceptable. Phantom power is often supplied by the associated audio Mixer (Sound Board), Amplifier or Recorder the microphone is being attached to. Check your board for Phantom Power. It may have it and just not be turned on. If your Sound Board does not provide phantom power, an inline phantom power supply can be installed between the microphone and the board to provide it. Such a supply is our AT8801 48 volt Single-channel Phantom Power Supply. It has XLR type input and output connectors. You will need an XLR female to XLR male microphone cable to connect the power supply to your Sound Board. Since the AT8801 requires AC power to operate, be sure to locate it near a convenient AC power outlet.

where do you put the battery?

is there a battery already in it, and if not, how to I put the battery in? If there is a battery, then how do I replace it?
If this is a new microphone, a single 1.5V AA battery is included with it but it is not installed. To install or replace a battery, remove the cap on the top of the provided AT8531 inline Power Module by pushing in and holding in the button on the side of the module that is marked PUSH. While holding the button in with one hand, remove the cap with the other hand. When installing the battery, note the + and - signs in the bottom of the battery compartment to aid you with the correct orientation of the battery. The negative end of the battery goes against the spring. Insert the battery at a 45 degree angle, using it to push the spring back to make room to push the positive end down into the compartment. Replace the cap, making certain that it snaps securely into place. Note that there is a 3-postion switch on the side of the module. When the switch is in the OFF position the microphone is turned off. This is true whether the mic is being battery or phantom powered at the time. When the switch is in the straight line position, the microphone is ON and the low roll-off filter is bypassed. When the switch is in the bent line position, the microphone is ON and the low roll-off filter is engaged. Low frequencies below 80 Hz are rolled off at a rate of 18 dB per octave.

Audio-Technica’s AT897 is designed for field audio acquisition in film/TV/video production, professional recording, wildlife recording and broadcast applications. It mounts conveniently on a DV camcorder without adding noticeable heft, and remains out of the frame even with compact digital cameras. This high-performance short shotgun offers outstanding long-distance audio pickup due to narrow acceptance angle of line + gradient design. It also features smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality and excellent off-axis rejection of sound arriving from the sides and rear of mic.
 

Do you make a shotgun mic with a 20' range?

Athough Shotgun microphones are better for distance than a standard cardioid (directional) microphone, there are limits to that distance. To illustrate how they more-so work, think about like this: If you were look at an object through paper-towel tube, you will only be able to see that object. However, you will be able to sense the distance, and you would be able to see anything that crosses in its path. What shotgun microphones mostly do is offer a very narrow area of pick-up, as to more-so listen to a given object. But like your ears, most microphones (including shotgun microphones) can sense distance. This is why they are commonly used in close-range but in video production. If you are trying to pick up something at a distances beyond 4’ with the appearance that the microphone is closer than it actually is, a Parabolic Dish would be needed. Again, the AT897 will be better for distance pick-up than a standard cardioid microphone. However, there are limits as listed above. If you are looking to achieve distance pick-up at distances greater than 4’ away, and you want it to sound as if it is 1’ away, then your answer is a parabolic dish, or get the microphone element closer to the source.

Band Changed ?

I have an ATW-R310 receiver and an ATW-T341 handheld that ive been using 4 years now problem free.

Yesterday when I turned on my system, My mic was not working. I then noticed that the Bands all of a sudden were different. The receiver was on band D and the mic was on band C. How did that happen and how do I get them both back on the same band ?
The displayed frequency has jumped band for some reason. Please note that the DISPLAYED frequency only has changed and not the actual operating frequency of the receiver itself. It is typically possible for the end user to reset the displayed frequency band to the correct band with some assistance from either our Audio-Solutions or Wireless Service Department. Please contact Audio-Solutions by phone at (330) 686-2600 extension 5000 or by email at audio-solutions@atus.com, or the Wireless Service Department at (330) 686-2600 extension 5004 or service@atus.com for further assistance.

<b>Studio Vocal Microphone</b><br/>Audio-Technica’s premier studio vocal microphone, the AT5040 represents a milestone in condenser design, offering remarkably musical high-fidelity performance, with profound realism and depth, presence and purity of sound.<br/>Designed as a first-choice vocal microphone, the AT5040 cardioid condenser features an extremely smooth top end with controlled sibilance. Large-diaphragm characteristics and fast transient response also make it ideal for recording acoustic instruments such as piano, guitar, strings and saxophone.<br/><b>Four-part rectangular element </b><br/>The first of our design criteria for the AT5040 was purity of sound. To achieve this, Audio-Technica engineers developed a four-part rectangular element, the pinnacle of our recent breakthroughs in sound-capture technology. Four exquisitely matched ultra-thin diaphragms function together (with outputs proprietarily summed) as Audio-Technica’s largest-ever element, providing combined surface area twice that of a standard one-inch circular diaphragm. <br/>By using four diaphragms in a single capsule, the AT5040 delivers the benefits of an exceptionally large diaphragm--along with an extremely low noise floor--without increased weight, decreased transient response or other drawbacks that typically restrict diaphragm size. <br/>Another key AT5040 design feature is advanced internal shock mounting that effectively decouples the capsule from the microphone body. For additional isolation, each AT5040 is also provided with Audio-Technica’s innovative new AT8480 shock mount. <br/><b>100% quality control</b><br/>Every AT5040 is hand assembled and individually inspected for 100% quality control. Each microphone is enclosed in an elegant housing of aluminum and brass with high-quality gray finish for durability and low reflectivity. <br/>Discrete components have been selected for optimized capsule performance; in fact, every aspect of the microphone has been carefully considered to minimize any effects on the audio signal.
 

Is this a good mic to use with an acapella men's quartet in a live setting?

In my opinion, no it would not be. This is a studio vocal microphone designed for recording a single vocalist. The accuracy this application requires is best obtained by a microphone that is rather directional. Although it is listed as having a cardioid type pickup pattern, the 5040 performs more like a hypercardioid pattern microphone at frequencies above 1 kHz. This smaller acceptance angle at the higher frequencies requires the vocalist to stay more on axis as the tone of their voice may change as they get further and further off axis.
Also, the 5040 is rather sensitive for a live sound application. Background noise will be heard, and I believe you would have a difficult time keeping feedback at bay if you are using wedges on the stage. Consider one of the following 40 Series models instead. AT4033/CL, AT4040, AT4047/SV, or AT4050. All are used extensively in live sound applications and perform very well.

This cardioid condenser gooseneck microphone direct mounts to any 5/8"-27 stand; it is 16.58" long. Equipped with UniGuard® innovations that offer unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference, the U857AL accepts interchangeable elements, available in cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine™ line cardioid polar patterns. The battery- or phantom-powered microphone also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise.
 

U857AL

Does this microphone have a portable base as opposed to using the fixed base that is included with the microphone?
The U857AL can be used with the AT8601 Microphone Desk Stand as long as you use the AT8664 cable pass-through adapter that is provided with the microphone between the stand and the microphone. The adapter allows the mic cable, which exists form the bottom of the gooseneck, to exit from the side of the adapter just above the stand.

Power module only for AT831R, U853R(W), U853R(W)U, U857R(L), U857R(L)U.<br/>Phantom power only in-line power module, with bass roll-off, input on TA3M, output on integral XLRM 3-pin. Furnished with U853R, U857R, PRO35.
 

Use of AT831r with UniPak transmitter

I've an AT831r with a AT8538 that I'd like to use with a UniPak: is there a converter that I can get which will replace the AT8538 and match the TA3 connector on the transducer with the HiRose socket on the transmitter? Thanks!
We do not make a converter for doing this. You would be better off with the wireless version of the microphone, the AT831cW, for wireless use and adding our AT8539 Power Module to it if you need the ability to make the mic "wired" again. The AT831cW will have the female 4-pin Hirose connector needed to connect it to our UniPak model bodypack transmitters. The AT8539 Power Module input connector is the same type 4-pin connector that is on the transmitter. Like your current AT8538, the AT8539 Power Module has a standard 3-pin male XLR output connector and requires phantom power to operate.

This versatile studio performer may be used with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the microphone is totally free of the distortion associated with conventional transformer-coupled outputs. And its fast response to transients contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments. The microphone is fully RoHS-compliant – free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS).<br/>The AT4053b consists of two modular subassemblies: an AT4900b-48 body and an AT4053b-EL hypercardioid head capsule (both available separately). Additional interchangeable capsules are available in omnidirectional (AT4049b-EL) and cardioid (AT4051b-EL).
 

Recording a club gig

Hello, I recently filmed a rock band in a club and although I think I would have had better results pulling audio from the PA system or using a stereo mic, I did get pretty good audio using my AT4053B. My question though, would I have gotten better video is I would have swapped out the capsule for the audio-technica AT4049b-EL Omnidirectional Condenser Mic Capsule?
Compared to the cardioid element that you have been using, the omnidirectional element is going to pick up sound equally well from all directions around it. I would think this would produce a great amount of "room noise" which is probably not what you desire. If the microphone is mounted to your camera, the omnidirectional element is also going to pick up camera operator noise.
