    I've been using a Senheiser, but have been having some problems with it lately. It keeps farting out on me.

    Anyway, just wanted everyone's opinions (positive and negative) on different wireless units.

    1) Which Sennheiser, I've been looking at an EW172 system.
    2) Wireless threads belong in misc. I'll move it for ya.

    Been there, done that. I suggest you do a search, all the info you seek is already there.

    That is on my list for NAMM. I'll be back with a full report next Thursday.
  7. i've been wanting a wireless unit myself. i have a elcheapo AT unit and it really cuts out on the lower end of my bass. i've been looking at the Samson bass bug and wondered if any of you had any luck/misfortune with this unit.

    My favorite analog unit is, like Munji, the Shure ULXS unit. My favorite digital unit is the X Wire. I recently acquired the X Wire (and have owned the ULXS for some time), and I hope to do a real world shootout with them sometime soon.

    In individual (not head to head) use, both have worked flawlessly, and sound fantastic.
  9. I've been using a Telex VHF for about 12 years now,
    and although I've sent it in for minor repairs a couple
    of times, it's held up great. Never had any interference
    with it at all. That surprised me, playing in casinos, and
    at outdoor shows, I thought I'd run into trouble SOMEWHERE,
    but it just hasn't happened yet. Telex has great service, and
    the price was great. I'm sure their newer units are just as
    reliable and effective.

    I have been using sennheiser evoltion series (not sure of the number, I am at work), for about 4 years now. I play out at least twice a week in all kinds of situations. I have had zero problems with it.

    What kind of problems are you having?
