If you've got the budget to work with a Lectrosonic's 400 Series, then just do it. It's the best thing I've ever worked with on a production before and well worth the money. I've had a pair of Sennheiser G3 100's for a year now and they've worked pretty well for me. If you've got Tram's and COS-11 mics that will work with these transmitters, I'm sure it'll ...

Yes, this is possible. It's unfortunately not straight-forward, nor will it be cheap, but it is do-able - except not via USB. I can give you one example of having done this myself, but you're not going to like the answer - becuase it's particularly pricey - but remember, this is just one example.

i would say if the gear is to be used by mostly inexperienced people, then maybe the lav is not the way to go. i would think it would be easier to boom.

I must say I'm very fond of Lectrosonic's transmitters/receivers! Built like tanks and very trusty in my opinion! The last year I've worked very much with the combo Lectrosonic and DPA, and for the first time when working with lavalier, though I still very much prefer boom, I'm fairy satisfied with what I got!

Here's a rundown on my wireless rig, since you asked what-all it takes to make a complete system, but it is just enough to do stereo effects or a 2-person scene, like an interview: Two Lectronics 411 receivers, Lectro LMa transmitters, DPA 4060 lavs (my decision was clinched by their modular micro-dot connector and adapter system - I can plug 'em into almost ...

Lectrosonics, Zaxcom and Audio Ltd. are probably the most widely used in higher budget productions. Unfortunately, each company pretty much has their own wiring schemes for lavalieres. It is possible to create 'jumper' cables. Like put a Sanken COS-11 wired TA5F for Lectrosonics to a Sennheiser 1/8" mini connector. Even doing that isn't ideal... but it ...

The SM series are great. I have 9 SMa's as well as a remote. It'd be cool to have SMV/SMQV's for the detachable antenna, but the SMa's run great and are easy to conceal. I just spent the last few weeks mixing a low budget show in which one of the female cast wore very tight low rise (and short) jeans with a short tight shirt similar to a tank top; that ...
