Quick Question on Lectrosonics 100 Transmitters

Hi all, I know someone selling a Lectrosonics UCR100 receiver and UM100 beltpack wireless kit. I looked on the Lectro website and saw that the UM100 transmitter is listed as discontinued and was replaced by the LMa transmitter.

Currently I have a Sony UWP-V1 system and would like to add a second/better quality system. I have used rental 100 systems numerous times though I'm not sure if it was the newer or older transmitter. Can I expect the fantastic Lectro sound quality I'm accustomed to with the "older" UM100 technology or is the newer LMa the way to go?

Thanks!

Re: Quick Question on Lectrosonics 100 Transmitters

The Lectro 100 series is analog, and non diversity. Nothing like the 400 or SR series digitals.
The Lectro 100 is better than a G2 IMO, better than a G3? .. sound quality is about the same, the G3 likily has a little better reception due to it's diversity recevr. The Lectro is more rugged though.

Thinking of getting it as more of a stopgap, so I do see your point. Would the UM100 Tx be sufficient compared to the LMa?
