    Yep, Sennheiser and Shure are the two big players. The main things to check are the available frequency bands in your country (or anywhere else you may be travelling), you may find that some require you to purchase a licence whereas others will be licence free. Feature wise, if you're running multiple units then check to see if they have a scan function to find the strongest signal (I think G2-G4 units can all do this), you may also want to look at an Antenna Combiner unit to help manage cancellation and drop-outs. I would also recommend getting more modern units that run on AA's, the old G1's rip through 9V's like nothing.

    So this doesn't seem clear from the spec reviews, but if we get one transmitter unit and it says 16 channels, does that mean we can send to 16 individual body packs?

    We only need the 3-4 but really hoping it doesn't mean we need separate transmitter per person. I might just be reading it weird, but we want to run board to one transmitter rack unit and then ideally be able to tweak each monitor mix to each pack from there.

    Jesus dies at the end....

    You can only send one mix per transmitter, but you can have as many receivers one that channel as you want. If you wanted a second mix, you would need a second transmitter on a different channel to the first and then you can tune the receivers into whichever channel contains the mix that is wanted.

    As an example, on my previous rig I was running four transmitters with four seperate stereo mixes, one for each member (the drummer was on a direct line).

    Ahhh ok.. I can see how this could get pretty spicy in terms of expense if you want to get fancy with it, especially with the sennheiser stuff.

    I'm not surprised you're confused with that "channels" thing.

    To make it clear what that REALLY does is:

    Changing GROUP = big change in frequency (you can select between 8 options) *
    Changing CHANNEL = fine tuning the above selected freqency (you can select between 12 options) *

    * = my LD Systems have 8 groups and 12 channels... Other brands / models can have other numbers of options

    At least with my LD Systems cheapo shit you'll get interference if the frequencies are too close so we have to put us on different groups, and not just channels
