  1. The only real difference I can see, is that the Synth 32 version
    has the ability to change channels (frequencies), and the
    Airline version doesn't.

    My lead singer used to have the Synth 32 handheld vocal mic,
    and now we're using 3 of the Airline mics, and one Airline guitar wireless.
    They work great, and the Synth 32 always had some kind of
    strange sound qualities that soundmen found to be hard to
    work with (as in to blend in with all the rest of our SM58's).
    For whatever that's worth. Plus, I like the fact that the
    Airline series have no belt packs.

    Good luck with your decision. I've been wireless for about 12
    years now, and find it very difficult to use a regular cable.
    I can't stand feeling "umbilicalized".

    I've been using Samsons for 15-16 years, and they are quite good wirelesses. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. I have a Synth 32 and I like it a lot. But I know people with the Airline and they like them equally well, too. Plus it's a lot less of a pain in the butt to carry. I got the Synth because I needed to be able to switch channels, but if you don't have that problem, I would probably go with the Airline.

    I had a Stage 55 which worked pretty decently, but you'll have to cope with the deal that it is just a VHF and thus you're more prone to drop outs and other faults. I now use a Samson Series One UHF wireless which I picked up off of ebay for 75 bucks and it has been working wonders thus far. No real complaints.

    I'm all for samson though. They deliver cheap products without much sacrifice to quality.
