Given this, have you considered just renting? Probably way cheaper.

My thoughts as well.

Let someone else worry about shifting RF spectrum and replacing worn/broken components.

Plus, you establish a relationship with a (hopefully) reliable vendor.

Do you really mean dual channel (two receiver in one box) or is what you want a single receiver with the option of using a handheld OR (not and) a body pack with a lav.  I donít think there are any quality dual channel solutions in your budget range.

Yes, I need dual channel or two separate units.

This involves time I don't have. I would need to drive to pick it up and a return trip when done. I think I can get a usable system, even if I have to up my budget.

The Shure dual BLX system is hot garbage imo, probably only good for karaoke or wireless on stage use where line of sight is very short and visible. I've scanned for free channels (like 10 channels only?) but once people start packing in, you have to get it high up or else it starts dropping the signal. It was embarrassing to say the least on the below picture. The Shure system was borrowed, not mine.
You heard right to stay away from 2.4 GHz systems. It will look fine during soundcheck, but once people start coming in with their phones pinging for the "free wifi", let's just say you're gonna have a bad time because of the wifi signals interfering with one another. Ray gave you good advice on a EW 100 G3 system; very reliable with way more channels to scan and choose from, and they perform better than the outdated Shure SLX / ULX-S/P.

Thanks for this - I will steer clear!

Audio Technica 3000 series fills the mid level wireless system very well. Not sure what the pricing will be like on the soon to be released new 3000 series line up, maybe look around for some dealers that still have some of the recent 3000's in 500mhz still in stock.

Thanks, I'll take a look.

There are used AT 3000 wireless in the Marketplace at a good price. You should be able to get four channels with four beltpacks and earworn mics, and buy four new handheld mics for about the same or less than two channels worth of Shure QLX-D packages new. I've had AT 3000 for several years with good results, and have switched to Shure primarily for local cross-rental purposes.  I'm not affilliated with the seller, but he is a stand-up guy to do business with.

Thanks Mark. I responded to that ad but have not heard back from him so far.
