My Pick: AKG WMS 4000 wireless microphone system, $1,358 to $2,095 MSRP, depending on configuration. (The system includes the SR 4000 receiver with rack-mount kit, PSU 4000 system power supply, PS 4000 antenna distribution amplifier, SRA2B directional antenna, MK PS and MK A 20 antenna cables, HUB 4000 network hub, HT 4000 handheld transmitter with C535WL/1 head, and PT 4000 bodypack transmitter with CK 97L and CK 55L lavalier microphones.)
What I Like About It: I like the fact that the AKG WMS 4000 system can search and find its own best frequencies in unpredictable and hostile RF environments. The units are compact in design, made of real metal, put out a solid line level, and (best of all) get their power through the antenna distribution amplifier and master power supply. I also had the network hub, but other than playing with it on initial setup, I found the front panel controls to be both intuitive and responsive enough to not have to pull out the laptop every time I needed to change anything.
Another neat feature is the front panel control, which glows green when everything is working well and glows red when there is or has been a problem. We left the units on overnight to see what might be a problem (yes, the batteries last that long), and the next day came in and see if any had turned red. This became a great way to determine where we might have problems.
