Hello,

A hypothetical situation: Will a Sennheiser wireless transmitter work with a Lectrosonics receiver if they have roughly the same frequency range? I need to replace a transmitter and just don't have the funds for a Lectro transmitter right now.

Thanks for the help,
Jim

Probably not enough to inspire confidence. Every wireless manufacturer uses a different system of signal detection. While you most likely get the RF carrier the audio is hit & miss. Perhaps a used set of Sennheiser G3 wireless would work for you now.

Likely not.

Hi Jim and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

While there are compatibility modes within a company's product lines and possibly outside it's lines, the best thing I can tell you is to call Lectro and see if they extend to Sennheiser. I'm thinking not, but check for yourself and please let us know here.

Jim,

This just in from Larry Fisher of Lectrosonics:

Hi Ty,
The Digital Hybrid receivers will emulate various brands and also older Lectro systems such as the 200’s. The 400 series receivers (Digital Hybrid) will work fine with the higher end Senns but not as well with the G2 G3 series, though some people report good results. If the receiver is an older 200 series, his best choice is the used Lectro market. Actually a used Lectro is always his best choice IMHO.
Best Regards,
Larry Fisher

Ty Ford
