    According to AT, the 897 sensitivity is stated as 10mV on Phantom Power (about 1mV less on battery). That is usable, but a preamp with lots of clean input gain is wanted. Preferably more than +60dB.

    On standard stereo HPs, the audio would only be on the left side. With the EM100 portable Rx, even at the max AF setting it is anemic unless the Tx sensitivity is set much higher then normal. The...

    Both the Comtek and Listentech systems are available in 72 or 216MHz versions. They are x-compatible but sound is degraded some. I has seen a lot of non-portable base station Listentech Tx on eBay,...

    Sorry Alex. I thought you were referring to a mic level cable configuration (Tip=hot). The CL-2 cable is wired for line level (Ring=hot), and that is what I use with no problems. Input stage clipping...

    I don't know about the G4, but with the G2/3 SK100, the input stage can be clipped even with -10 dB line, (regardless of the sensitivity setting). Maybe Sennheiser increased the max input level for...

    Both links go to the "Y" cable. A 35db attenuation cable should work if it's made for traditional 3.5mm audio inputs (tip= hot) or specifically for the Sennheiser 100 series body pack Tx.

    If you use the console's line level out, to feed a SK 100 series bodypack transmitter, you will need some kind of custom cable or pad, since the Tx's input is mic level (-60dB) and the console's main...
