    I need advice finding an IEM that operates without batteries. I’m seeing lots of endorsement for the Rolls PM351/Shure PSM200 setup, but, the Shure needs a 9V battery. Hard wired is OK. Body pack feature is OK, but not essential. From what most everyone says here, an output limiter is a must. I need 3 inputs; my bass, vocal, and the full band mix. I’ve heard about the Rock On Audio Tasty Blender, and that sounds ideal, but I haven’t seen much love for it here on TB. So guys, what are my alternatives?
     
  2. Peavey makes one, but I don't believe the limiter is really smooth. I think it's the HB2 or something like that. About a $100 - it's a 1/3 of a rack space I believe.

    In the right circumstances, I've gigged w/ the Rolls PM351 w/o a limiter.
     
  4. Not a huge plethora of choice out there. I am relying on the limiter from the board but that is not really the safest solution. The rock-on-audio tasty blender seems to fit the bill.

    I have never tried it but it could possibly do the job. The only thing I don't like about it is an absence of an xlr input (it only takes 1/4" jacks) although there are convertors for that.
