+1 I've got 20 channels of ADX in use on my current tour, along with about 54 channels of other UHF systems, and I've been quite happy with it. I also used it on several shows earlier this year and loved it as well.
The only "issue" that I've encountered is that with a large multi-zone antenna set up, you want to be sure that the zones are set up so the ADX is very clear on what zone it is operating in at any given time. Otherwise, if it is seeing multiple "A" antennas and multiple "B" antennas, it can get a bit confused and have a few drop outs. This is, of course, true for any system but the AD seems particularly susceptible to it. If you are just using a pair of antennas, or even two zones of two, as I was on the earlier shows, this is definitely not an issue.



I'm confused.  I thought the ADX transmitter's were not yet available.

For a major production of the types that Ike would be working on, I'm absolutely certain they get "the hookup" with pre-release final-production models... :)

Shure is diligent about their RF products getting thoroughly field tested by expert users in their final development stages as they transition from prototype to production.

Your confused, I'm distracted :P I meant AD, and corrected that oversight in one preview of the post, but missed this one. I just have regular AD.

I am considering Shure Axient wireless systems to replace my Sennheiser EW2000 and wanting to ask for anyone who has had serious experience with Axient for their impressions of the system. It seems to really have some great and unique features which interest me.

As some additional information, I am very happy with my Sennheiser EW2000 systems but am interested in the Axient features and Axient seems well supported by several console manufacturers. I have used Shure ULX-D, UR etc pretty extensively as well as all the Sennheiser systems up to EW2000 so can relate to any advice with these as benchmarks. Pros & cons...spit it all out.  ;)

We swapped out our UHF-R vocal and backline rf for AD this tour and are very happy with it.
The battery life with the Li-Ion Shure batteries is pretty awesome with a real time counter on the rx display.

+1  Shure rechargeables give well over 6 hrs. of confident use @ 10mW power, which also yeilds unbelievably long range when properly freq coordinated.

What’s the big difference between the Axient and ULXD line? The pricing of the AD4Q is only slightly more than the ULXD4Q.

I thought I read somewhere that Yamaha was going to provide "native" Dante support and control from within the firmware of their CL and QL consoles.  Has anyone else heard this?  This may well influence my decision on what wireless systems to purchase.

AD receivers have true diversity, ULXD not really. 

AD tunes the full (soon to be) legal range of 470-608, ULXD divided into old-style frequency bands.

AD will have "classic Axient" remote control of transmitters when the ADX transmitters start shipping.

ULXD was available several years ago, AD much more recent.  Time marches on.
