    I listened to the speeches yesterday (as performed through my £40 uhf mic) and it was.... OK. Lacked warmth, handling noise was OK, suffered a bit from wind noise close up and quickly lost presence...

    Good, but pricey :D

    I did look at the compact Rode system, but there's a lot of comments about dropouts with that system. I'm always nervous about using anything 2.4ghz for performance purposes (I...

    It's going to be used for speeches at weddings, etc so quality needs to reflect that. To be honest, I hadn't thought about budget, but it will also reflect their use. If I was bothered about budget...

    I was wondering about this earlier this week. Legally, this wouldn't prevent us from providing the service so is our contract frustrated? I mean, I doubt I'd ever actually enforce a contract for...

    I'm not sure if it's just round my way, but I'm not seeing any leads (of any value) come through either site at the moment. That could be because I've set the price filters too high and everything...
