Unit does not keep a contant audio connection. Audio cuts out alot!!!
I purchased this based on the documentation that the receivers and transmitters would work up to 100 meters. I have tried multiple setups and in all cases the link between the units drops when units are about 10 meters apart.
Even though I read the reviews from the other musicians/djs I bought a set. I thought that it was doing well in the music room but then I moved outdoors and ther was no signal on one channel from the mixing board.What a dissapointment.
I was looking for a wireless system to use while DJ'ing. I want to run a second PA on the other side of the room to even out coverage in a large room or maybe to supply audio to the next room over for cocktails. On paper these units would fit the bill very well. I really liked that it came with two stereo receivers, further increasing my options by opening the possibility of having two axillary PA's. I've been trying them out in my house for week, streaming audio from my home computer. The transmitter and receivers are all on the same wall of the house. One receiver is in the next room (~30 ft through a wall). The other receiver is upstairs. (~40 ft through a wall and the ceiling)Operation: Easy to use. Sych'ing the two units took a couple of tries, but it's not too tough. After they're sync'd, you're ready to use them again and again, with any interaction other than turning them on and off. Wireless Quality: They're OK. Maybe a couple of times an hour I would hear a very minor drop--like a syllable or so. It's fine for listening in the house, but too much I feel for professional use. Admittedly, I didn't do anything to try to made the signal quality better. I might have been able to improve the wireless performance by changing location of the units, wireless network channel, antenna direction, covering my house in tin foil, etc. I would have started doing these things except for the next issue...Audio Quality: You can hear a very noticeable delay from the transmitter input to the receiver output. When I was standing in the hallway between one room with audio straight from the computer and the other room with audio from the receiver, it sounded like I was in a very large hall with echo off the far wall(s). These are digital units, and like talking to someone on a cellphone who's next to you, and hearing their voice both directly and through the phone, there's that odd sounding delay. Additional features: I only looked at the very basic features--analog in and analog out. I didn't try the USB input on the transmitter, the digital output on the receiver, or the battery operation. There is no battery door for replacement. Since batteries WILL wear out, in my mind, this puts them into the realm of a disposable consumer product and implies that they are not made to be long term professional equipment. Think of all the battery operated products you have and think of which ones can't change the battery? I think of Happy Meal toys--once the battery wears out, you just toss them. (Apple is the obvious exception to this...)Bottom Line: I think these would OK for use in the house. But, they have some flaws that wil prevent me from using them professionally--the delay is the deal killer for me.
OMG, I was so disappointed. These guys write this product up like it is designed for the professional sound contractor or musician. They market it to the working musician and it is more for the home stereo/TV user who wants to bring music to his back porch without wires. I just got it and used it on a gig that is a large open hotel lobby . The transmitter and receiver were no more than 40 yards apart. The unit brags of capabilities of up to 100 meters. At 40 yards or less with direct sight of each antenna, no blockage and nothing in between, it popped in and out of service not to mention the delay in sound from the speaker that was directly playing music out of the mixer. It created a stadium echo effect. I then moved it with 10 yards and it stopped the popping in and out but the delay it caused was unacceptable. There is no way to use this item unless you are using it as your sole speaker system and are going to be in very close to the base unit. Also the RCA connectors are bogus. What professional sound man or musician plugs into their Power PA Speakers with RCA jacks. I should have realized when I saw that it would never work in a professional sound environment. When I called the company, their people here in the state never had an opportunity to work with them before they pushed them out to the public with all this hype you read when buying them which is total bull. Don't waste your time like I did. I was so wanting this to work. I can't tell you how disappointed I was. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. I called and complained heavily to both the company PHONIC and the dealer. They apologized for what I had to deal with and promptly issued me a return label via Email which I thought was very proactive on their part and I have returned it.
I bought this unit two weeks ago to make wireless my home theater system. It seems to work well enough. Range is < 15 feet but good sound quality within that range.
