New Audio Technica Audio-Technica System 10 Digital Wireless Mic System

I'm a solid supporter of the Sennheiser G3 Wireless Kits, but I do realize that starting from $600-$800+ they can be expensive for people just starting out. The reason you want a good wireless system is not only to be immune for other wireless interference, but you want a kit that can transmit a good full quality recording. Cheaper wireless kits often sound very thin or often referred to as 'tiny'. Sometimes just as bad as an old AM radio.

Audio-Technica has recently released a new 'System 10' Digital Wireless System available with a wireless body pack + lav, or wireless hand held mic (for ENG style). The wireless Lav system also comes with a Hot/Cold shoe tray for mounting the receiver and operates on a rechargeable Li-Ion battery (not sure if that's a good thing).

Operating on 2.4GHz with dual antennas to improve reception, these new kits are anywhere from $150-$220 dollars CHEAPER than the G3 systems, but only time will tell if they can perform up to par. For more information about this new kit check out the product page (click here).

    The POLSEN system sucks. Ordered it to try out and save a few bucks, returned the next day after 30min of usage tests. Not a problem with a clean/clear connection on channels, just a problem with the audio quality on the mic inputs. Sounded terrible with my Rode mics and the included were not great. The line input was decent and considered getting in-line power adapters to use that, but in the end not worth it. Sennheiser it is!

    Agree that there should be far more to choose from in the wireless area, after this much time. Maybe Black Magic can do something. For $200 more, the G3 is a no-brainer. Also, that there should be more of a choice is also a no-brainer.

    You have absolutely no way to monitor audio levels with a zoom h1 as a lav recorder. Absolutely playing with fire using that for live event shoots. Set the levels ultra low for safety and deal with an unpleasant signal to noise ratio which the h1 don't have good preamps to start with.

    I use Sennheiser ME2's feeding into Zoom H1's - a budget solution that works well, especially because the H1 can be locked in the "on" position.

    Time for wireless audio kit shootout. Test this vs the new B&H Polsen... and add in the G3 and Sony new hybrid digital UWP-D.

    On your mark, set...Cheesy!

    Yes, this could potentially be big. Wireless lavs are a must have for narrative work, and the prices have always been a big barrier. If these are good quality, this could be a major breakthrough. However it all hangs on just that: how is the performance? Until that question is answered, all we can do is hope and wait.

    I've been waiting for a cheaper decent substitute for a while. Considering that radio and wireless technology has been around, you'd think that there'd be dozens of decent offerings available. Most of the cheaper ones I've seen-heard flat out suck.
