    MXL FR-500WK reviews

    FR-500WK Portable Wireless Audio System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works for me Acceptable quality for what I paid for them. The receiver had a broken dial when I received but I was able to get a replacement unit same day from the manufacturer who is about 20 min away. With the exception of the receptionist everyone I dealt with at Marshall was very kind and accommodating. It's a no frills unit but the sound quality is good. I particularly like the small mic as it is easier to conceal when necessary. I would have given four stars if the unit wasn't broken. I do recommend for those on a budget especially for those who can make use of the more easily concealable mic. Nice that comes with both XLR and mini output for receiver.
