Digital makes all the difference ... PGX "D" ...
on December 25, 2011
If you're a musician who has been disappointed with the old standard UHF or VHF wireless technology, you should understand that this is a whole different animal. No "compander" needed (if you've used the old systems you know what that is ... a compander is an extra device that attempts to re-expand the dynamic range that gets compressed by virtue of the modulation technique used in the old systems), no squelch issues, just pure crystal clear "Digital" wireless sound. One of the other big names in the industry, that I know and love (ok it's "Line 6"), came out with digital wireless guitar and microphone systems over two years ago, and I love their guitar transmitters, but their microphone cartridges fell short. This one is a genuine Shure SM 58 cartridge (you can get others) going out through a perfectly clean digital wireless transmitter. I swear it sounds like you're singing through a Shure microphone with a cord.
Again, this is a whole different animal from the old UHF and VHF systems ... you'll love it.
Addendum: You can order this unit with one of several different Shure cartridges, in fact, you can order a different cartridge later, and just swap them when ever you want to. While the SM 58 is kind of the industry gold standard by which all other microphones are measured, I have recently become a big fan of the Beta 58A. See my other review of this unit with the Beta 58A, which is the one I actually ordered through Amazon.
