The Concert 88 Handheld 16-Channel True Diversity UHF Wireless System from Samson consists of a CR88 half-rack UHF receiver and a CH88 handheld transmitter with Q6 dynamic microphone capsule. It is designed for live sound reinforcement applications and can be used wherein the vocalist, MC, or lecturer wants to be free to move around and sing or speak wirelessly.

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 loses 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'. The CH88 handheld transmitter is synced with the receiver via infrared. It can operate for up to eight hours on two AA batteries. Additionally, it features an on and off/mute switch.

True Diversity Reception
Switches between two antennas depending on whichever one is receiving the stronger signal to minimize dropouts in audio
Infrared Link
Connects the wireless receiver to the wireless transmitter
Outputs
The receiver features both XLR and 1/4" outputs

    Concert 88 Handheld 16-Channel True Diversity UHF Wireless System (D: 542 to 566 MHz) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good mike! 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. I have seen several wedding bands that use these units (handheld models) 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. NOTE: (Comment applies to handheld unit, lavaliers DO come with clothing-clip)... These units do NOT include a clip to mount the mike on a stand, so make sure to get one separately if you need one. Biggest complaint, by far, is that the foam windscreen (on the lavalier model) 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the price A great simple to use, multi channel wireless system. Great for basic functions with good clear reception and quality sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone I usually work with Shure mics but I needed another mic and was on a budget so I decided to try this Samson mic and have used only once but worked as described. Sound was great and easy to operate. No feedback issues or lack of coverage though it did not move any further than 50' from the receiver unit. I may consider the headset version for my next purchase since the price seems right.
