This is a question for the movie folks.
I'm in the market for a wireless kit for documentary and feature work.
(1) highly portable
(2) flexible as to frequency range (think LTE and all that stuff)
(3) reliable also in bad weather (of course...)
(4) easy to use
(5) if possible, 2ch receivers to manage weight in the bag.
(6) Being rack-mountable is nice, but not necessary. I can perfectly live with a few RX units (especially if each is more than 1 channel of audio) and a splitter unit in a bag.
(7) must be able to P48 power a standard boom mic via adaptor.
What hit my eye was the Audio Ltd. EN-2 range, see ENG & Documentary | Audio
. Yes, the website says "ENG and documentary", but specs and price seem to be a bit out of the typical ENG stuff like Senny Evolution G3 (which I want to avoid).
Other manufacturers I know that make 2ch receivers are Lectro and Zaxcom, both in another price range which I'd love to avoid if the downsides (if there are any) of the less expensive En-2 are manageable.
I've read the specs of 2040 and En-2, and don't see that much of a difference. What websites don't tell, however, is how the stuff behaves in real life. Anybody has experience with En-2 vs. others?
Especially interested in: sound quality, squelch behaviour, use of P48 adaptors for wireless boom work, reach, and so on.
Thx in advance.
