Audio-Technica 600MHz Trade In Program

Plan Now. Trade In When Necessary.

The FCC has reallocated the 600 MHz frequency band (614 – 698 MHz) for wireless broadband use. With this reallocation, wireless microphone systems will eventually be prohibited from operating in the 600 MHz band.

If you’re currently operating a 600 MHz wireless system, you will need to transition to a new system at some point over the next couple of years—anytime from now until July 13, 2020, depending on where you are operating your wireless system. Due to the complexity of the reallocation and the number of parties involved, there is no way to accurately predict just how – or when – the changes will unfold. But there’s no need to panic. Unless your system is part of a mission critical application, Audio-Technica recommends following a use-it-til-you-lose-it path: Begin budgeting for a new system, get as much use as you can out of your current 600 MHz system, then make the switch once you encounter problems.

Trade In On Your Terms
Audio-Technica is offering a “Trade In On Your Terms” program to help you make the switch out of 600 MHz. For each 600 MHz wireless system you trade in (regardless of manufacturer) you’ll receive a rebate on an eligible Audio-Technica wireless system (See chart for eligible systems and trade values)

To give you the flexibility to budget and switch to a new system, they are running this trade-in program from August 15, 2017 through March 31, 2019.

How To Trade In Your 600 MHz System:

  • Verify that your trade-in system operates in the 600 MHz band. Your receiver and/or transmitter should include a sticker with the frequency range. If any part of the listed frequency range falls within the 614 – 698 MHz range, your system will eventually be prohibited from operating and is eligible for trade in.
  • Purchase an eligible Audio-Technica wireless system from Dale Pro Audio between 8/15/2017 and 3/31/2019.
  • Register your purchase with Audio-Technica HERE.
  • Once registered, you will need to follow the instructions provided and mail the following documents and equipment:
    - Printed trade-in rebate form.
    - A copy of the sales receipt for your new A-T system with store name, date of purchase, model number and price paid clearly legible.
    - The original (not a copy) UPC bar code cut from the product box of each new A-T system purchased. (Not from the shipping carton)
    - Your old 600 MHz wireless system (receiver and transmitter). Note: To receive the full trade-in rebate on a dual-channel system you must send in two channels (i.e., two single-channel receivers or one dual-channel receiver, plus two transmitters) from a 600 MHz system.
