This was definately an impulse buy. I probably wouldn't buy another if it were stolen.

It would be better if there were a better way to estimate how much life is left in the battery.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $100.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Mars Music (R.I.P.)
Features:
This unit has 1 power switch that consists of on/off standby. Inside, there is a Hi-Lo switch. The Hi switch boosts the transmitting distance, the Lo is for shorter distances. There are also two dials for settint the body pack to transmit via mic or guitar. I suppose the frequency range is different depending on which you select. The receiver has a volume knob... that's about all. These units only broadcast on one frequency, which isn't a problem most of the time. I use this so I won't have to be tied to my amplifier. Since I perform as a solo jazz guitarist this a cable connects the receiver to the input of my Boss RC-20 LoopStation then goes into the amp.
Sound Quality:
This cuts some of the dynamic frequency of the guitar, but I compensate for this at the amp end of these by boosting certain frequencies. All wireless units cut some of the dynamics - for $100 who am I to complain?
Ease of Use:
Very easy to use. Plug in, Power Up, Play.
Durability:
There is no realiable baterry meter. When I put a new battery in, I can't tell any difference in the LED from the battery that I had in before... You just have to listen for sound deterioration and make your best judgement as to when to change the battery. I have had no problems with this unit. BrandX is a part of AudioTechnica. The same piece is manufactured under the AudioTechnica name and costs about $100 more. AudioTechnica replacement cables etc can be used... so that's a plus. Molded plastic - so I wouldn't bump into anything with it if I were you.
