The Sony DWZ-B30GB wireless guitar transmitter/receiver--

The Good: (For me) It works -- very well! I have yet to hear anything but my guitar coming through.**(I'm adding a caveat to this at the end of my review.) The signal quality is excellent. As far as I can distinguish, it sounds exactly the same as playing through 5 feet of high-end cable -- no coloration, harshness, mud, digital sound, buzz, hum, artifacts... I've even used the receiver to power two amps with the second one hooked into the tuner socket.

Transmitter and receiver connect very quickly during set-up, and don't seem particularly fussy. Granted, I haven't used this in an electronically-crowded environment, but I don't hear any interference from either of my two routers, phones, neighbors, etc... I have yet to find the transmitter's range while wandering to the far side of my house.

The transmitter has a metal case and seems reasonably rugged. It can be switched to operate with a microphone if needed. Past that, I won't go into features since they're available from several sources.

The Nits (all minor):

The receiver can be run from a 9-volt power supply using a standard "Boss-style" connector, or from its own 12-Volt wall-wart; however, there's a slight drop in output power with the 9-Volt option. I've been running the unit on its own 12-Volt supply with the Sony wall-wart plugged into a power-supply AC daisy-chain socket. Sony's 12-Volt plug and socket is not a standard Boss-type configuration.

The receiver is nicely-sized for a pedal board, but it is plastic. So while it seems reasonably well made, I wouldn't want to "stomp" on it.

I'll start off with the bad. This unit will accept the 12v input that's supplied, but will also let you use a 9v if you want to use a power distribution on your pedal board. When I tried to use the 9v power there was a noticeable drop in volume and some increased hiss.

That's the only bad thing that I have to say about this.

Now, for all the good...

The tone is awesome, clean, pristine. The range is good. The fact that there is no antenna on the receiver makes it very easy to place it on the pedal board. For people that don't like the sterile sound of digital, it also has a cable tone feature that adds a lot of character to the tone.

I use rechargeable batteries in the transmitter and get about 8 hours of continuous use before I have to swap them out.

People have complained about the "proprietary" connector that no one seems to be able to order. I have successfully used a 1/8" mono to 1/4" mono connector and a 1/8" stereo to 1/4" mono connector. The only thing that you don't get with one of these is the ability to screw the connector into the body pack. Since I don't jump around on the stage I'm not too worried about it coming loose.

The mute button works well... I've owned a few wireless in my day, this is my favorite!

Nice that the base works on power pac or battery.Great that the wireless unit runs on AA rechargeable batteries and can be just paused or shut off and shows low bat on it and the base unit.Sure was tired of buying all those 9v's!Have used it all around without line of sight with base unit and it hasn't dropped out.Am very pleased with its operation.Finding small control button easily did take some practice though.Still give it 5 stars.

This was my first wireless set up and it works great. I bought two kits and have one hooked up to my amp and another hooked up to my PS3 for Rocksmith. The sound is great and the ability to adjust the tone based on simulated cable lengths actually works pretty well making for an interesting effect. As far as Rocksmith, there is no latency with this. A couple things to note. The transmitter's body is built as tough as a Boss stomp box but the receiver is pretty light weight plastic. Also on the transmitter the plastic battery tray is kind of weak. Overall I think it's a great product though.

This unit has such a great feature set at a great price. Sadly, the hiss from the transmitter makes it unbearable when playing any high gain, compressed sound. I use a compressor in front of my amp for a little extra sustain and when I run my guitar through the Sony DWZ-B30GB and turn on the compressor the hiss is outrageous.

If you're playing country or light rock you may not notice it. It may not be noticeable on an uncompressed bass guitar. But if you're going to play metal or even hard rock, this unit is going to bring the hiss.
