Thx Isaac. I've read your thread entirely and got some great help from it. I didn't even know things like the power management and antenna system you got existed!!! I still don't know anything about them but at least I know they are there.
I've checked out the ew135 a bit. I don't really know a ton about it. It's probably st the absolute top of my price range and would keep me from getting some of the other things we need like some mic cables, stands, a condenser mic, and the rack system similar to you.
So I'm wondering about the xsw 1 or the xsw 35. The would fit a lot better price wise for us. Problem is that I just don't know the differences in the models.
The sure I've been checking out is the blx 288 with sm58 mics. It's a dual unit so 2 of those and then a single would get me there I think. I've been told to stay away from the PG stuff so that's why I thought the SM mics.
I also just found the audio technica system 10 pro. Dual mic set up. Antennas in the front (perfect line of site to singers) and the cost is right. Digital is new to me, but I can say with confidence that there is no wifi in the building and never will be. Also nothing closer than 500' with a wifi signal.
Stay away from anything in the 2.4 or 5 GHz wifi ranges, won't be pretty.
If you are going with the BLX stuff get the rack mounted BLX-R version(Think that's what it was), I've also heard good things about the Sennheiser units and seem to be a good fit for your price range.
Do wait for the XSW-2 though, sennheiser's website
claims that it is available from April so should release very soon, should be in a similar price range to the XSW-1 but with some improvements, seems from a quick look at pictures that it will have external antennas which is amazing.
Other than that the other topic that your read through has all the information you are looking for.
I know you are set on wireless and this is fine but is there any reason why you do not want to stay wired, your stage area seems pretty small.
An off topic recommendation on the other stuff, get decent cables made up(check the lab lounge for some topics on that) and Hercules is a good brand for mic stands(haven't used their musics stands but if it's the same quality it will be a good buy as well) that isn't that expensive.
