Nathan Riddle:
Looking for a portable Battery Powered PA for a client.

Needs BT & WL Mic.

Would like 2 options (budget & expensive).

---

I've used the Denon/Marantz Envoi and it was/is excellent. But it's discontinued :(

I've used the MiPro MA-808 before and the BT is junk and for $2k isn't worth it.

I know Anchor is the old standby but after experiencing them, they're super overpriced and a simple horn + woofer would do 10x better than their lame "line array" *laugh*

I thought Bose had a system, but I can't find it now.

For the expensive option I was thinking of the Sennheiser LSP 500. Has multiple bays for wireless inputs/outputs. Bluetooth, 2x Hot-swappable batteries and it sounds reasonably good.

I see they have been discontinued between now and the last time I used one. Bummer

Crowd size? Indoor or out?

I know you've already rejected the brand but my Anchor Liberty 2 systems are making me money on dry hires. Simple horn/woofer box, BT, BT wireless mics (no problems yet), Li-ion batteries (finally). https://www.anchoraudio.com/liberty-2/

Hi Nathan,

    The Bose S1 Pro sounds good and goes surprisingly loud. 
Fairly wide dispersion.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

Outdoor.

Anything similar to Envoi or 808 S1 Pro.

Crowd size, idk, people spread out in a kids park? 150'x150'

Anchor - not really rejected; just silly. The Liberty 2 is definitely the best of their lineup. Just a touch quiet and 4x cost of Envoi.

No WL HH mic that I see?

Looks like Galaxy Audio has a decent looking model.
