Looking for a decent microphone mixer with lavalier and handheld microphone (2 channels minimum)

I am looking for a decent wireless microphone system with at least 2 channels for small presentations of less than 60 participants.

Ideally, this is what I am looking for...

- 1 wireless lavalier microphone for the presenter. Ideally one without a bulky transmitter.
- 1 handheld wireless microphone for audience participation.
- A channel mixer with a line out to record audio on computer.

The device needs to cost under $300.00

I have searched Amazon and I can't find any units that have a good rating and offer a handheld wireless mic with a lavalier style presenter mic.


Any ideas?

Thank you. :)

you probably can't buy a combination unit, but you can always make your own combination. Pro Equipment uses XLR connectors for input/output, you can buy converters to go from what you have to what you need.

Buy each piece as a separate item so that you can get the best value for your money.  Your budget is rather a tad on the low side, a good wireless microphone can easily top $300 by itself.

Thanks David,

True. Apologies if it seemed that I implied that, but in all the kits I looked at, it wasn't clear how to order an add-on component that was compatible with the unit.

But I'm looking for purely wireless, so I wouldn't expect XLR connectors. Also, I am not seeking pro equipment, nor do I have the budget for that.

Depends on how you define "good". The last company I worked at had some nice wireless mics (x4) and four-channel mixer and I recall that they spent under $500.
