Hi,

 

I have a budget of $700 max and wondered what could be a good IEM system for that desk.  I need stereo.  What's you experience?  Thank you.

 

Cheers

I remember your contribution to this recent discussion http://line6.com/sup...itor-setup-how/ that canvassed exactly these issues, tochiro...

 

...So I'm guessing that when you're asking "...what could be a good IEM system for that desk..." you're referring to a wireless IEM system, as you'd already be aware of the JamHub http://www.jamhub.co...ar-monitor.html wired range that starts at around $300 and extends to roughly (USD) $650.

 

While your (USD) $700 will indeed buy just one wireless stereo beltpack (with its companion base station) from Audio-Technica http://www.bhphotovi...Monitoring.html, to my mind, their thousand dollar "BandPak" package deal represents far better value: http://www.sweetwate...l/AS1100BandPk/.

 

While I've seen those operating very successfully, I would strongly urge you to collect enough coinage (roughly $200 over your budget will be needed to start with a base station and one diversity antenna'd beltpack) for the additional clarity, processing power and metal-housed ruggedness that would arrive with my personal favourite among such systems, the AKG IVM4500:

Additional spr4500 diversity beltpacks for that system are roughly $500 each.

 

It won't surprise you to learn that wireless stereo IEM systems of comparable quality and ruggedness from other makers (such as Sennheiser and Shure) have almost identical pricing structures ...and that diversity reception is the key to reducing (in "real" terms, pretty much eliminating) the annoying RF-induced "swishes" and "fizzes" that really seem to "bore through" the heads of players who are wearing IEMs.
