Hello,
I'm looking to purchase a good dual wireless lav system for video work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Marten and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

If by dual wireless you mean a two channel system - two transmitters, two receivers. Then you can get two single channel systems. Lectrosonics, Zaxcom Audio Technica offer two channel systems.

Will this be in studio or on location?

How will you use it?

Regards,

Ty Ford

Thanks for the welcome,
Most of what I will be doing will be on location shoots indoors. Most of which will be scripted. 1 camera shoot, no grip. Looking for something I can either wear as a belt or camera mount.

You say you're looking for "good" dual wireless... In the spirit of good, better, best, I would say get two Sennheiser G3 systems. It's not a dual system, but the transmitters and receivers are pretty small and it's easy to mount two receivers to a camera with the use of a Cool-Lux MD3000.

Audio Technica and Adzen both make dual systems, but I wouldn't recommend either. The Audio Technica is decent, but the receiver is too large, and the lav mics that come with the transmitters are not good at all.

In the spirit of "better" and "best," that would be Lectrosonics and Zaxcom (in no specific order). Wireless systems are one area where spending more money the first time out is a wise move. I bought two Lectrosonics 100 series systems (their entry level system), and they're great, but I wish I would have gone all the way for a dual SR receiver and two SMa transmitters. In fact, just writing that sentence down makes me feel like I should go ahead and do that as soon as possible :)
