I am considering an new lav (currently have a countryman B6 with XLR for a wired setup). The Rode Lav is supposed to save money because of their swapable connectors, but I'm curious why I can't just get an adapter for the Sanken Cos-11 and have that be the same thing... like can't I just get the lectrosonics or mini connector for a wireless transmitter and just plug an adapter to XLR for when i want to go wired?

OK, now I see, this makes sense. Thanks for the great info guys! Love this forum. So the swapable Rode connectors replace $130 connectors, not simple cheap ones. I was confused because I've heard of people buying a set of different lavs for different inputs. Is there a general setup you guys recommend? Meaning, is the Rode the way to go, or is a Sanken Cos-11d with some of these adapters the way to go? I know it all depends on $$ and situation, but just curious to hear recommendations. I used to have a G3, but its gone now, so was considering a Lectrosonics. Would be nice to have a mic that could be wired, and go into a g3 and a lectro. Hmmm. Thanks for helping a new guy!The actress slipped into the water.
