The SINGLE most important thing is a NON COMPANDING system.

Most wireless mics have companding-so search carefully.  It will screw up the results of a measurement system due to the compression and expansion of the signal.

We us a lectrosonics system that was first eveloped for wireless interface (as far as I know-maybe it was another reason)

Lectrosonics TM400 would probably be your best bet. Purpose built for measurement and calibration.

Is the problem the companding or the resultant delay?

The problem is companding (TX compression - RX expansion)  - that's the advantage of the Line 6, its signal chain is basically straight into a 24bit A/D with no companding.  Delays in the measurement system are easily accounted for.

Agreed.

And if the same mic is used, any delay is simply not an issue.  Whatever is "common" doesn't matter.  It is the DIFFERENCE in the measurement that matters.

I thought the line 6 model 35 had an inbuilt high-pass filter.

Digital systems that use data compression will also be problematic. Some do, some donít.
