Cheapo audio setup for small conference room (with wireless mics?)
September 22, 2010 11:07 AM Subscribe
I work for a nonprofit that rents out smallish space for other nonprofits to meet in. We have one room that's big enough that soft talkers are sometimes hard to hear in back, and one of those soft talkers has recently asked if I can set up a wireless lavalier mic for her. So I need to solve too problems: the mic system, and the amplification system.

I've experimented with various types of desk-mounted (pzm) microphones amplified via stereo receiver, and it doesn't really work... feedback from the surround sound speakers is too prominent. I have had good luck with a super-cheap little Nady package with a portable amp and wireless hand-held mic-- I set the little amp in one end of the room, and hand the mic to someone on the other end, and it works pretty well-- the poor sound quality is made up for by its simplicity. I figure maybe some sort of cheap PA system, and some Beringer or Nady gear? (Looking to try to spend well under $1000 for the whole setup)
Thanks in advance!
