  • Wireless Audio

    Howdy folks. Does such a quality product exist for wireless audio? 

    Once a year I make a trip to (wefest.com) and we camp in an Ice Cabin (link below is not the actual unit but that is the size)

    http://fishhouseforsale.com/8-x-16-wheelhouse-4/

    I use zed 10 fx inside the cabin running off laptop and set it up next to the stove right inside the door. PA is a B52 Matrix 1000 and the sub I lock and cable to the axle and stack on 2 x 4's in case deep rain, then I set the 10" satellites outside as needed and lock them inside at night. The pa is fed by xlr cabling ran through a fish hole to the sub.

    It is a hassle going into the camper to put in requests/switch tracks etc. I would like to run the laptop outside if at all possible for quick access and DJing and may be looking at running video this year. I could run a long unbalanced headphone line to the mixer, but that's more cabling, which I am trying to reduce. 

    I found this: 

    http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/DISTRIBUTED-BY-MCM-MB1000-/80-7300

    Question 1: Would there be a degradation in audio quality that would be substantial? I have found other products but they specifically state 30 feet line-of-site, which I do not see as a stable solution due to the mixer being inside the RV. Anyone know of any other products? Would be looking for something with preferrably a smaller USB dongle? 

     

    Question 2: A little OT re power surges this is what I believe to be a standard I think (be nice to me here) 220 RV hook up which is what 30 amp? Everytime someone's AC turns on (many many RVs lined up) there is a potential for audio drop out which is faint however annoying, is there anyway to resolve this? Thought about bringing my furman, but I suspect that wouldn't cure the issue. 

    Thanks everyone for input.

    Much better solution would be a stereo wireless IEM system. I use an Audio Technica M-3 for situations like this.

      Apple AirPort Express, use airplay to send the tunes to the mixer. 1/8 out to the mixer. Run tunes off iTunes or an iPod with no cable. Cost $100

          I wouldn't imagine much more than 30 feet line of sight with this one either.  In any event non LOS you can probably cut that another 50% or more.

           

          You're looking for a smaller dongle ... really?
