Transmit Wireless Stereo Audio from Computer

(1/9) > >>

Phil Lewandowski:
Hey!

So did the forum searching already and found a few general ideas on a way to do this, but nothing specific. Many of them from over 6 years ago as well so some things have been discontinued.

Here's the deal:

-Need to transmit stereo audio from a computer located at a scorer's table in the middle of a gym to input of mixer in closet. Hardwired is the way to go, but no practical and affordable way to do this
-Distance will always be under 100ft
-Trying to keep cost under $1500 total
-Tried a 2.4GHz transmitter, and works great when the gym is empty. But with lots of people in the stands...no reliability as you'd expect
-I want hardwired power on both transmitter and receiver, nothing running on battery. (That seems to rule out using a turnkey IEM system with a beltpack)


Someone thought that a Shure PSM IEM transmitter and ULX reciever could be made to work together to get stereo wireless audio? But couldn't track down the specific devices this might be.
Suggestions?

Thanks!

Why does audio in a gym have to be stereo?  Get one of the PCDI boxes from the other thread, make it mono and use any decent wireless you have in stock.

Using the "buy once, cry once" mentality, I'd much rather invest in a system that is capable of stereo if possible. (The PA in the gym is setup for stereo.)


Now, if there truly are no capable, relatively affordable systems to transmit 2 channels, then it isn't the end of the world.

Bill McIntosh:
Assuming all the audio is prerecorded,  put a PC at the mixer with your audio player loaded.  Remote into it from the scorers table PC and trigger playback as desired.  Still have wifi possible issues, but you could use 5 gig versus 2.4.

Maybe one of those Alto Stealth wireless 2-channel units would suffice. Iíve not used one but a friend does for wireless satellite delay speakers. Is battery life not long enough or can you not do a switch during an event?
