Looking for help on buying wireless XLR setup with Phantom Power.

Hey guys,

I am looking for a wireless setup to replace an XLR cable that goes from my Sony Z1U to mic w/ boom pole. This transmitter needs phantom power. It be perfect if it had a headphone jack. The boom operator needs to be able to monitor the sound and transmit to the Z1U. I am looking to spend as little as possible without losing too much. What specific equipment should I be looking at? What else should I be looking for in a wireless setup? What?s a good place to buy this equipment? EBay? Anyone selling?

Well probably the best way is for you boom op to use a portable mixer like the the sound devices MixPre or something a little cheaper that delivers voltage and monitoring capabilities. After the mixer any good wireless transmitter will work fine. Lectrosonics is at the top, but the Sennheniser Evolution G2 100 Series I have had great results with, but with any wireless... It does take testing, but I do wish you luck!

Hi Kevin,

I have a Micron radio mic system that does what you ask; it's just a question of ordering a special cable. Ask a soundo for advice. This is pretty standard equipment for them.

All the best,

Chris

hey Cris,

Hmm. Are you willing to sell it or is it just a cheap system to check out? If your willing to sell it, why are you selling it.

Hi Kyle,

I'm not selling it, and it was expensive. But it's a piece of kit I use every day. No sound recordist has ever questioned using it to send from mixer to camera after they give it a good listen (though some make a backup recording). Don't forget, you'll have to be capable of monitoring sound yourself to check for interference, unless you buy another channel for return.

Best,

Chris
