iRiver E100 help

Hi everyone,

Could anyone help me out with choosing the correct lav for the iriver e100.I need it for back up audio at a wedding this coming Sunday.I have the sennheiser g2 kit....do those lavs work in a standard 3.5mm mic input? probably not but just figured I'd ask.Any suggestions would be fantastic.

Thanks! Ryan

I've used my G2 mics (Tram, Countryman, Senn ME-2) without issue on Sharp minidisc recorders. So I would surmise it should work, providing the E100 provides plug-in power at the 1/8" input

Problem is some iRivers use very non-standard wiring of the extrnal input jack, which I don't remember right off the top of my head. Search Google to see if you can track it down.

Countryman lavs are excellent, very high quality.

There may be a problem on your horizon. First is not all XLR->3.5mm cable adapters are wired correctly to begin with and second, the iRiver itself assigns non-standard functions to the tip, ring, and sleeve connections inside the jack. Not knowing exactly what you have, what's going to happen when you mix 'em together is anybody's guess. I mean, it won't explode but you may or may not hear any signal and if you do it may or may not sound any good.
