The Samson Concert 8 Lavalier UHF Wireless Microphone Presentation System is designed for live sound reinforcement applications wherein the speaker wants to be free to move around. The system consists of a half-rack UHF receiver, a beltpack transmitter, and an LM5 lavalier microphone with clip. The receiver features a true-diversity dual-antenna design whereby internal signal processing switches to the antenna that is receiving a stronger signal. This helps to prevent drop-outs and maintain a more accurate transmission. The unit includes a tone key and an auto-mute function to eliminate noise if the receiver ever looses the signal. For controls, the receiver features a power button, volume knob, select button, a 7-segment channel indicator LED, as well as audio ready, peak, and IR indicator lights. Up to 16 of these systems may operate simultaneously on two frequency bands from a maximum operating range of 300 feet.

The beltpack transmitter is synced with the receiver via infrared. It can operate for up to eight hours on two AA batteries. For convenience, the lavalier microphone includes a spring-loaded clip so you can attach it to your lapel.

      Comments about Samson Concert 88 Lavalier UHF Wireless Microphone Presentation System:

      These work just fine. Have used them in Manhattan for PA use in panel discussions and the like with no problems. This is notable because of all the RF in the air here. I now have 5 of these units, including 4 lavaliers and 1 handheld. They have all worked fine right out of the box.

      I have not used them at their "full" maximum spec. range of 300ft, but 75ft has been no problem, even through one wall.

      Some have commented that their construction seems flimsy, but in my experience they are built well enough, especially considering their performance at a fraction of the price of other brands. And I have seen several "wedding bands" that use them exclusively.

      The fact that these are "frequency agile" is a big plus, as you can mix mikes and base units within their band (units are fixed to either "C" or "D" band in the US), and choose from 16 channels per band.

      Biggest complaint, by far, is that the foam windscreen is easy to lose, so maybe get some extras - they can be found cheaply enough - or find a way to fix the windscreen to the mike.

      BTW the replacement plug-in mikes are quite inexpensive, and I've used these quite successfully to replace mikes on Shure SLX body packs.

            Comments about Samson Concert 88 Lavalier UHF Wireless Microphone Presentation System:

            I preach with this microphone. It works well and doesn't cause feedback with the other mics. The micriphone cover falls off easily if you are not careful, you can lost it.
