    Probably a dumb question but I'm used to my G3 systems wheere I set different frequencies when using 2 or 3 together.
    What is the process for setting up 2 AVX to use together? Do they automatically scan and set?
    I really like the AVX and am thinking about getting another and moving away from the G3 and the shrinking spectrum next time a sale hits.

    You hold a transmitter and receiver close and press the pair button and it gets synced. Then repeat with the other one. So each AVX gets synced. It is kind of idiot proof so assistants can do it.

    I have G3 and AVX. I love the receiver of the AVX, the way it can rotate and get fixed to the XLR of my camera.

    Does anyone know in what way G4 is better than the G3?

    Thank you. Yeah I love the receiver mounting into the XLR and adjusting. So much easier to use with smaller cameras without losing the cold shoe.
    I've been curious about the g4 as well. I believe it uses a different frequency range than the g3 and had a couple advantages but I don't remember what they were now. I didn't pay close attention since I like the avx.

    I am using two AVXs together for 2 years and I would highly recommend it. You dont even have to pair them. They remember "last connection", so you just turn on one set wait couple of seconds and they pair. Then you turn on second set and you are ready to go.

    If you want to mix receivers and transmitters, then you need to user pair button. Otherwise it is super easy.

    For the entry level G4 vs the entry level G3, pretty much next to no improvement whatsoever.

    The only thing this means is:
    1) the G3 secondhand prices will take a little dip now the G4 is out
    2) you know there is no point waiting for the "next thing" after the G3 (so get a Sony UWP-D11 instead...)

    Thank you all very much.
    Looks like the options of increased and decreased output power is a possibility with the G4 500 series (10 and 50) vs 30 milliwatts on the G3. The 500 series plug on transmitter has plug on power

    Another advantage of the G series (if your need it) is the ability to use one transmitter to feed two (or more) receivers.. in a multi-cam shoot for instance, feeding the same audio to the cams.
    Most GHz frequency range systems must be paired (one TX to one Rx).

    I was just going to ask if the AVX can have one transmitter and multiple receivers. Is there a real handshake between the two or is it just a broadcast on that "channel"?

    no, it is always locked. So one receiver + one transmitter, always.

    Yeah as Rick said the G series can do that but the AVX cannot which can be one big plus for the G series.
