Well, the ATW-1812D is now on B&H, and it is only $500. It looks like that's the way I'm going to go. Thanks everybody for your help.

Check Full Compass as they have the 1812 for $328 plus shipping.

Well, Ty Ford just said that he has used the AT plug-in with the NTG-1, but he got terrible audio quality. http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=96433 I was planning on buying that system, but now I'm not so sure. Can anyone else confirm or deny the ATW-T1802 works with the NTG-1? Ty said it works with the NTG-2 with the battery, but the NTG-1 uses only phantom power.

Or perhaps even better (?) the new dream plug from Zaxcom, TRX700, with built-in recording backup in addition to phantom power and digital wireless ...

The AT will power the NGT1. I have one.
The 1800 is a great system. So far, I've not run into any issues, but to be as neutral as I can be, I've now talked to two sound mixers that have had issues (both fairly minor) in two very disparate parts of the USA.
Honest Doug,

I tried the NTG-1 here on the 1800 and the level was low and very very noisy. Wonder why.

My advice, BTW, would be to get a Rode NTG-2.

Regards,

Ty Ford

I personally like the Sennheiser G's but I was lucky to pickup a used Lectrosonic U195 system from Coffey Sound and find it to be a pleasure to work with. I did upgrade my microphone from the stock lectro to a Tram TR-50. No noise whatsoever. I guess if you really want good sound you get what you pay for. But there are used ones up for sale at decent prices.

I decided to go with the Sennheiser EW100 with an SKP500. B&H actually has this kit (the EW150ENGG2) but it is not on Sennheiser's site anywhere. The instruction manual was also just for the EW100 (no SKP500 manual.) The SKP500 works perfectly with my NTG1. I do have an old Shure handheld mic that it won't work with though, wonder why... This kit was perfect for me because it had the 100 series lav and receiver, but the 500 series plug-in which has P 48. The SKP500 also came with the leather pouch and belt clip, so I'm excited! I also got a $100 instant rebate!

On AT's site it has a manual for their 1800 series single channel receiver (ATW-R1810), but I don't see it on B&H yet. In fact the individual dual receiver and individual XLR plug-in are listed as "Coming Soon," even though the full system is available. I guess I'll wait for the single channel system (assuming it is less expensive, and that the plug-in will work with my mic.)
The 1800 does not provide phantom power. I tried it with the NTG-1 with dismal results. If that's what you want, you need the NTG-2.
