Following this year's dominance at the 48th Annual GRAMMY® awards, leading microphone manufacturer Audio-Technica carried that theme to the world's premier Latin music awards show -- the 7th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards which was held on November 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York. The show was broadcast live on the Univision Network.
Artists who performed using Audio-Technica's Artist Elite® 5000 Series UHF Wireless System, with the AEW-T5400 handheld microphone/transmitter and AEW-R5200 true diversity frequency-agile dual receiver, included: Thalía, Grupo Pesado, Joan Sebastian, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and Andy Montañez.
John Harris, Music Mixer for the 7th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, explained, "I used a wide selection of Audio-Technica microphones at the 48th Annual GRAMMY Awards with great success, and I wanted to have that same kind of reliability and audio performance at the Latin GRAMMYs. I need to have the highest level of sonic consistency from artist to artist, and that's what I get with Audio-Technica."
