Question: What RF Venue products will be available through Audio-Technica?

Answer: On November 1, 2018, Audio-Technica U.S., Inc. entered into an agreement with RF Venue – a global leader in antenna, spectrum analysis and RF signal management for professional audio-visual applications – whereby RF Venue’s patented antennas, RF signal distribution systems, and spectrum analysis tools will be available to Audio-Technica dealers in the United States. The Diversity Fin antenna, DISTRO4, and other RF accessories are the perfect match for the new 3000 Series (Fourth Generation) and 5000 Series (Third Generation) wireless microphone systems from Audio-Technica. Please note these products are compatible with several other Audio-Technica Wireless systems as well.

There are several products from RF Venue and Audio-Technica that function similarly, and so over the next few months many of the Audio-Technica products will no longer be available for sale in the United States. Please see our Wireless System Accessories page for an up-to-date listing of all the active products for sale in the U.S. Below you will find a list of Audio-Technica products and their RF Venue replacements. Please note that all products will retain the RF Venue brand, and current RF Venue dealers can continue to source products from RF Venue directly.
