    Hey I live in NYC and mostly gig is small/medium size clubs I want a wireless system but I hear a alot of talk about a lot of them on the market not being good for basses because you will lose some low end. Can someone recomend a wireless system in the $400 price range that 1. Has the least interference and 2. Has the least signal loss

    If you can find a used Xwire, they are the best ever made. I have seen them go for $400 a few times on Ebay.

    On the other hand, I've seen them sell at around $600 on eBay also. I do agree that the Xwire is the best out there. The biggest problem is that they aren't made any more. :(

    As for currently available units, don't touch the VHF units. There is just too much interference in the VHF bands.

    UHF units are generally much more reliable.

    I myself use a Sennheiser digital wireless which is based on the Xwire technology. It is not as good as the Xwire, but it is very good. I've played a few different venues and haven't had any problems with it.

    I've got one of those that I really like. It is 24 bit digital UHF. The best part is that it doesn't roll off until 20 Hz. The worst part is that it will eat a battery in 4 hours.

    They sell for around $258 on various websites.

    I have one too and I love it. Its designed off the X-Wire techonology.

    Only one thing. Buy rechargeable bateries.
