At the low end Ive had very good results with the AKG WMS450 series, with both the D5 and C5 capsules. Research the RF in your area before purchasing and select the band with the most free/quiet space.

I was also impressed with the low end AKG handheld (no idea what capsule) on one show I ran into it. I have no idea how they operate in bunches but for a single MC/announcement mic it worked great.

I have had such a great experience with the line 6 stuff that I have been replacing a lot of my Shure ULX with it at a profit no less...

I have set myself up with a Dealer account for Line 6 and can currently hit your budget with the V70 stuff if you are interested hit me up.

+1 on the Line 6. In the sound quality department they kill my Senny G3's.

However I'm already having durability issues on week 3 with the plastic end piece. Hopefully they are cheap to replace and/or in redesign or looking at a different type of plastic.

The line 6 stuff sounds better than the ULX?  I use ULX equipment at one of the venues at work and I think it sounds great.  It's used only for speaking, however.  Compared to a PG wireless, it sounds amazing.

Looks like the line 6 digital operates in the shared 2.4Ghz band - no traffic issues with hot spots, routers, ipad/itouches, tablets, wifi doohickies?

It works surprisingly well, just don't put the mic right next to your router. In my experience if anything, the mics are fine and the wifi loses. I just ordered a V75 and am very curious to see how that improves things from the V70 I have. Supposedly the big change is less stomping on the wifi.

I have two Sennheiser Freeport systems that have been perfectly reliable and well worth the money for several years now. No problems of any kind. One of them replaced a Shure ULX system that died mid gig several years ago and I never bothered to replace it.

Yes there is a lot less self noise, it is just cleaner, it is also half of the price new.
 other things to factor in are 7-8 hour battery life on 2 AAs that cost me a total of $0.65 verses $1.05 for a 9V that lasts 6 hours in the ULX your operating costs go down. Also built in antenna distribution and the ability to chain up the power with a simple guitar pedalboard power stringer. They are pretty awesome.

The new EV R300 is worth checking out over the samson products. Not as great as the Line 6, but nearly half the cost.

Riders have a way juggling that logic.

If the rider specifies wireless, what are the chances it will specify an entry-level AKG?
