    hahaha... and as I said... I don't trust wifi connected anything, been burned badly once that was enough. - ok back to the real topic.

    It's off topic but... much like Wireless microphones... WiFi is also a limited frequency spectrum. Wifi runs typically at 2.4Ghz and has 14 only channels. Most WiFi routers select an available channel on boot up. Once you have more than 14 WiFi routes in close proximity to each other, they...

    I've had too many bad experiences with wireless when oodles of people show up to an event... so I avoid it like the plague. I'm seriously considering either the X32 Compact - or the Midas M32R.

    Thanks I had previously looked at PreSonus in their Studio Live 16.4.2 which is discontinued now... and the Series III seems to not be shipping yet. And I really need to make a decision in the next week or so. (the 32 is too big in my mind for what I need).

    Appreciate the reply... I never was a legit sound engineer... I was always the guy who had to step in because the main person was missing. But when I was around the sound guys... they always avoided the "B" word like the plague. Because of your reply, I just looked at the latest reviews and...

    Any specific recommendation? As in my past I was able to get vocalists sound fine using the wimpy "1 knob" Yamaha boards, I'm sorta thinking I just get one of the larger 16 or 20 channel analog boards that has 8 channels of "1 knob" compressors. However... that will set me up to never be able...

    Thanks for the info Don! I think I'm selling myself on just renting everything for the wireless mics... but I do plan on buying racks w/wheels, a new mixer, etc... any thoughts on the rest of what I need is appreciated!

    I suppose my simple question is... "what would you recommend"? hahah... Again I'm practically starting from scratch, I have (2) Yamaha DXR15s (mains), and an old Yamaha 10 channel mixer (which I'll need to replace) as I want all microphones on compressors.

    Hello Don... unfortunately... I don't even know what your comment means. SORRY! Taken at face value you are saying channel 25 (KOVR, 68 miles), 33 (KMTP-TV, 42 miles), 35 (KCRA-TV, 70 miles) are all loosing their frequencies? If yes... that means 3 new 6Mhz sections will be open in H50. And...

    Rental Recommendations US West Coast or US, for wireless sound

    I have been trying google... interestingly "sound rental equipment san jose" did not find Munday & Collins at all. But it did find Avista and several others that I found more or less ridiculous. Have you used Avista?

    Rental Recommendations US West Coast or US, for wireless sound

    Hello everyone, Based on various threads like this one - https://www.controlbooth.com/threads/sennheiser-audio-technica-shure.35676/#post-310456 And many others, it seems like it may be better to rent my various wireless microphones (likely Shure QLX-D or Sennheiser 300 or 500s) when I need...

    Seems like I should buy you a drink (virtually of course) - thank you for all the help! So... let me see if I have the nail in the coffin on this topic. So in the area I'm going to be in, for June... I have these options: Band: H50 (Mics: 14 Reserved | 14 Max) - 530—602 MHz, TV Channels...

    Alright, finally got into the 1st venue to look around a bit... it's only about 65' from the elevated control booth at rear of theatre to the proscenium opening. The control booth has little glass windows some of which have been punched out. I assume I should try and situate external antennas...

    I am rather intrigued by all the Shure tools and learning blogs, but I'm thinking I may need to put in another 100 hours or so before I understand it all! hahah... So for example, I put in the address for the theatre I'll be renting in June... into the Shure Freq Finder and it says: Band: H50...

    Sorry... when I said "base system" I meant something like.... I'd buy - a laptop, a portable rack, snake, whatever tools for understanding my wireless setup, and "X" number of units like say... (3) Sennheiser EW512 G3's. In theory this gives me enough to work and understand how the system will...
