    Good quality and range for the price

    I've actually gotten two of these, one for my church and one for a camp I worked at. It delivers a very high quality sound for the price and the range is excellent (I've personally tested it at more than 200 ft with no noticeable drop in sound quality). If you're looking for a relatively cheap wireless handheld system, I highly recommend this one. The fact that it has both a sound meter and an RF signal strength indicator despite its low price is also a plus as you can easily determine from the sound booth whether the mic is on or not.

    The one caveat that you should be aware of is that while a switch to turn the pickup on/off/standby is located on the bottom of the handheld, the actual power switch is located above the battery compartment and you have to unscrew the cover over the bottom half to access it. This is somewhat annoying, but a bigger problem is that if you are not careful, you will unscrew the top of the mic with the pickup instead of the battery cover. As the pickup is connected to the battery/transmitter portion by two soldered wires that can't really rotate very well, it is very easy for them to get twisted and eventually break. Also, the case of the receiver unit is relatively cheap plastic and can dent easily if something strikes it, even if the blow is not very hard.

    That being said though, as long as you are reasonably careful with the handheld, you should have no major problems with this and as I said before, the price is pretty much unbeatable.

    I can't sing but I understand electonics and know what sounds good from the mixers.

    A good hand held mic. system

    Rather than run corded mics I ordered this unit for a congregational meeting, so that it could be handed to anyone wishing to speak. The unit worked flawlessly and the sound quality was very good. I experienced no dropouts or lost connections.As for vocals I don't know as I have studio mic. for that, am going to try it on the next soloist. The guys at Sweetwater were great in helping me, I sent them a list of other wireless system,s in use and they insured that I received one that would not interfere.
