    I know, asked a thousand times. But what's the latest, greatest wireless setup for bass? Under $1000 would be nice.

    the answer given a thousand times is the line 6 relay. it's digital, so no tone-robbing "companding"; it's full-bandwidth like a cd.

    Another vote for the Line6 G50. They are great units.

    Line 6 G50. Better than the Analog stuff out there. Made me a believer and my guitarist (also a sound guy and recording engineer) says the G50 is even better than a cable in a live situation.
     
  8. Line 6 just won

    Line 6 Relay series. Used them for couple of year now. Gig couple of time per month.
    Never a problem. G50 is what I use.

    I know absolutely nothing about this stuff and I'm starting to look into wireless units.

    What is the difference between the line6 G30 and G50?

    They work on the same digital principle
    At 100ft or less they are going to work equally well
    More features on the G50, sound is the same
    Do the G50 if you want to wander the hall and listen to stage levels.
    But with more and more wireless the more channels the better you won't clash with somebody else. I have a feeling 12 channels would be more flexible in the long run but maybe it won't make a difference if others have the 12 channel option. More people seem to be buying the G50 (I could be wrong) so you might have an easier time of finding answers if you run into a problem.

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

    Looks like the G50 is worth the extra $100.

    G50 & Eneloop rechargeables.

    Field-use NOTES:
    The G50 can interfere with WiFi as it blocks anyone at my home using wireless on my router. I've not tried carrying the transmitter in my pocket to a public WiFi spot yet....for entertainment purposes.
    Some places have musak wi-fi'ed on similar frequencies. Channel change fixed it for me at one upscale ballroom in Houston as their Musak was slightly picked up on Channel 1. Going to Channel 2 cured it.
    Get the Shure WA304(or two of them, one for spare). Replaces the Line 6 straight molded cord. http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-SHU-WA304-LIST

    G50 All The Way!
     
  17. Got to say the Stageclix Jack system, had mine about a year now and it's never missed a beat! In my opinion much better build quality than the Line 6 and the transmitter recharges by plugging into the receiver! Great design feature.

    I didn't think StageClix was available in the US ... yet.

    Looks interesting
