Designed for plug and record operation with fully self-configuring digital operation, the AVX Camera-Mountable Lavalier Digital Wireless Set from Sennheiser is well suited for film and video production, as well as electronic news gathering (ENG) and A/V rental houses. The system consists of the EKP receiver, SK bodypack transmitter, and an ME2-II lavalier microphone. The AVX system provides a variety of automatic functionality aimed at flexibility and speed including auto-dynamic range settings, which automatically adjusts the audio level to a recording device's input sensitivity, reducing distortion and eliminating the need to adjust your mic's level. The system also offers link protection, a feature that quickly scans available frequencies and will automatically switch before any interference becomes audible.

The EKP receiver has a compact design that plugs directly into the XLR input on your camera or recording device and includes the necessary adapters for use with DSLR cameras. Additionally, the EKP can swivel, allowing it to be used with other attachments mounted to a camera. It powers on and off automatically when it senses 48V from your recording destination, for fast recording and saving battery life when not in use.

AVX Camera-Mountable Lavalier Digital Wireless Set (ME2-II Lavalier) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from AVX Came Through! Just did shoot for a speaker at a local Bar Association meeting. It was at a conference center and had about 100 women lawyers and all of them had cell phones and mobile devices. The building was also loaded with wifi networks. At times I was about 100 feet away from the speaker and the AVX came though like a champ! The run time was around 2 1/2 hours total and I still had several bars left on the receiver! NOTE: If you purchase includes the ME2 Lavalier mic and you find yourself in a noisy environment, go into your camera settings and adjust your db levels. It made a world of difference in the background noise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functionally Great, but with some audio flaws I've owned several of the previous g2 and g3 lavalier sets before, and am familiar with the quirks and issues that they sometimes have. That being said, the biggest issue that I have with this mic, is something new. Functionally, they're great. They pair seamlessly at the touch of a button, and have no control to fuss with. While i'm still unsure and worried about about the life of the rechargeable batteries, if they last as long as they said then it seems like a great addition. Audio-wise, however, these suffer from a problem that isn't present on the previous versions. It seems that when someone speaks, there is a spike in gain and the first split second of each sentence or word after a lull has a small peak. This can get really irritating especially when you can hear it every 5 seconds or so. There does not seem to be any way to adjust the sensitivity (as there is on the old ones), so there doesn't seem to be any way to change this. Perhaps someone knows something i don't?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review Followup - Transmission delay I wrote up a review of the AVX system a few weeks ago. At the time I really liked it and I still do. Great system, simple to operate, great signal. However there is one important thing I think a potential buyer should be aware of. There is a 19ms delay from AVX transmitter signal input to output on the AVX receiver. I assume this delay is for the A->D conversion, encryption, transmission, decryption, D->A conversion of the signal. I confirmed the delay by doing some test clips simultaneously recording the AVX signal and a Sennheiser G3 wireless lav paired together. Sure enough, 19ms difference. 19ms is about 1/2 of a frame at 24fps, or 1.14 frames at 60fps. From what I can see the 19ms delay is not observable in dialog video playback at either 24 or 60 fps. I would caution that if you simultaneously record AVX audio along with a boom mic or any other analog system (for example standard wireless lav) on the same recording device, the tracks will be out of synch by 19ms and blending the tracks together will create an echo until you compensate for the AVX delay. This is the only drawback I see in the system, but it does not effect my high overall opinion of the system. Just thought a buyer should be aware of it and plan accordingly when recording a combination of analog and digital audio sources. Obviously recording the AVX signal externally and synching in post is a good solution, or just plan on bumping the AVX audio forward 19ms to have prefect timing. Regardless, still a great system, just need to be careful when mixing digital and analog audio sources together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design For shooting Run and Gun, lav receivers have been problematic. I've had G2's and G3's and most of them, the hot shoe mount breaks off at some point... so in a hurry, the cable gets wrapped around the handle and the pack is left to dangle. This new design from Senn is perfect for me. No cables for the receiver-- it's an XLR hard mount. So far after several months, I haven't had any interference issues, and really, the only reason why it doesn't get 5 stars is the short battery life of the receiver (was shooting a conference seminar the first time I used it and battery drain was problematic). The transmitter batter is more robust. I've bought a second system and some extra batteries (which is another design change for the Senn-- no more AA batteries).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable piece of gear! This is not a toy... it produces results that will be hard to distinguish from a Lectrasonics if you're plugged to a great pre/recorder. The dynamic range of the unit is a bit narrow as one would expect from an automatic gain system such as this. Its very sophisticated. For those out there wondering about whether the noise floor rises as the speakers are quiet, its not the case. The unit maintain the same noise level. Its very clever and sounds fantastic or our applications. It will likely become a beast once coupled with a DPA or Sanken.. also, there is no RF interference whatsoever. Really really well designed little device. Well done Sennheiser!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted to like this system I am a owner of AVX for 4 months by now. I have been a loyal Sennheiser's customer since they introduced their first wireless UHF system. G2 and G3 are excellent for the price. If only G3 had Lectro's 100mW and true diversity it would be an ultimate system. AVX is a true disappointment. I picked up 2 systems with bodypack transmitters and stick mics. The major problem with AVX is lack of any control. When there's no interference, the system performs great as advertised. However, if you are in a RF heavy zone with AVX - you are screwed! There's absolutely nothing you can do. With G3, Lectro, Sony you can scan and change the frequency. Not with the AVX. Sennheiser advertises the system will scan and find find a new frequency should there be an interference. BS! I had lives the other day in Times Square - complete disaster. Before, I had issues in front of Macys, and in downtown Brooklyn. I even replaced the system, hoping mine was defective. However, the new one had the same issues. Its too expensive for a prosumer wireless system, and doesn't provide reliability expected from a professional wireless system. If you can't afford lectro, stay with G3 or SONY. AVX sucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sennheiser is a tank Just bought the avx system when it was on sale. In fact I bought two. Perfect timing because my job needed to mic 2 individuals having a discussion. I love the small receiver that directly plugs into my camera...it's solid. Best part of this system is (1) ease of use (2) fast set up (3) reliability (sound) no more cracles, sudden burst of interferece. I used to own the (G2) mic and that had these anoying burst of interferece that had to be corrected in post...it took forever. I wasnt the best at setting it up and most likely didn't find the right frequency? AVX does it automatically. Saves me the worry, and when I press record I am confident about the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro audio for the average consumer Sennheiser sent this out for me to review and I couldn't be happier, I have the e3 112 system and this is now replacing that. The set up is amazingly easy and dare I say idiot proof...it took me a little bit to get the 112 set set up but the AVX was super simple. Oh and by simple I mean there was no set up, the tech in this set takes away any guess work. The price on this system may seem steep but from what I have seen its we'll worth the upgrade. The biggest advantage (besides the easy set up) from the 112 to the AVX is the rechargeable batteries, its a cleaner look and IMO a more professional look as well.
