The Sony UWP-D systems is a very robust system (love them, I have 6x setups)

I suggest a little more time going through the manual
You're right dynamics don't need power. I haven't used mine in so long I forgot.

The plugin transmitter was from an older kit I retired long ago.

Re: Upgrade to Sennheiser G3?

If you are looking for an upgrade, take a look at the Lectrosonics stuff. It's a big step up.

Do you have any experience with Sonys UWP systems?

Thanks.
Sony UWP-D11 are "better" than the Sennheiser G3, yet cost around the same price.

I own 5x Sony UWP-D11 myself! (plus 5x Lectrosonics too, & 2x RodeLinks)

But would I recommend someone swaps over from G3 to UWP-D11? Nah, probably not really. As the gains is not worth the hassle? As UWP-D11 is better than a G3, but UWP-D11 vs G3 are still together in broadly the same category ("no budget wireless"). You need to step up to the likes of Lectrosonics/Zaxcom/Audio Ltd/Wisycom/etc, but they're far more expensive!

Are you using a handheld mic with the plug in transmitter ? If so is the handheld mic metal bodied ? The metal body acts as the aerial for the plug in transmitter.
