There have been a couple of discussions about this but none have really covered Micron or Audio LTD which are two systems I am looking at. I need to invest in a decent wireless setup and have two or three choices which will hopefully be in my budget. I know Lectrosonics or Zaxcom are at the top of the list but I just can't afford to go there. I am looking at Audio Ltd setups especially the Audio Limited EN2 Dual Diversity kit. http://www.pinknoise-systems.co.uk/audio-limited-dual-diversity-p-634.html Micron was also another choice with the 100 explorer series http://www.pinknoise-systems.co.uk/micron-explorer-series-16ch-sdr116-tx716a-p-382.html Also kinder to the wallet would be the Sennheiser G3 wireless which seem to have mixed opinions on here. Any advice or sharing of experiences with these systems would be a great help.
I use the Micron Explorer 100 series wireless, and have to say they sound really good. I used sennheiser g2 500 systems before and they were really noisy. I have one G3 500 IEM system and while the sound quality is better than the g2 systems, i think that microns will be a better investment if you want to do this professionally. The range of my systems is way better than g2 systems, usually i get a 30-50 meters of range. Depends on the area of course. Microns have only basic features, no scanning but are built to last and easy to use. It depends how much you want to spend, i bought mine used but in very good shape. You could ask John @ Pinknoise at used kits. I got mine from him also. I'm sure Audio LTD EN2 is a nice system and it has the scan feature as i see.There is another system worth considering -the company is called Audio Wireless - http://www.audiowireless.co.uk/ I do not know the pricing, as it's the new thing, but i heard that they are manufactured by the guy that founded Micron, it may be worth checking out. You could also ask soundies on jwsoundgroup forum.
Can You rent them both and try out first?
There is only one issue with the Microns: You need to take care of metal touching the case, even the belt clip should not touch the case.To be on the safe side, just by the leather cover for it and You´ll never have any problems with ´em. Although a lot of "theorists" (seller) say, they´re aren´t that good, I used them more than 100 times and never had problems! Better radio frequency stability than G3 .
You might get more possibilities with G3, depends if You need versatility. Radio -Frequency- slection wise, If You leave Your country ;-) Frequency wise, if You ever want to transmit signal with bass (mixer to camera etc.)
