If you cannot hear sound from the headphone jack on the wireless receiver, is the mic muted?

Is it set for 16 bit or 12 bit audio? It's set on the internal menu. Try it both ways just to eliminate possabilites. I suspect the cable from the receiver to the MA-100 is bad. If you can hear audio at the receiver (headphones) but you're not getting levels it would have to be the cable. The MA-100 is good because you had another mic plugged in. You tried both inputs on the MA-100?

I'm thinking you are probably right...I've tried both 16 and 12 bit audio...but what's the rule on that? I did try both inputs on the MA-100...I've also been corresponding via e-mail with a Samson tech who believes that if I am running both receiver and transmitter with 9V, it's not a power issue...he suggests a possible exchange with B&H camera, the vendor of this wireless system, in the event it is a bad cable situation. I suppose the best way to pinpoint that is to try this wireless with someone else's gear. Eventually I'll get to the bottom of this matter.
I appreciate your's and everyone's input into my problem. This site is quite excellent and I will deliver a free snowboard instruction to the first participant who hits the nail on the head regarding my problem...y'all just have to make it to Vermont.

> My receiver does have an earphone jack, but cannot hear the mic

If there is no output form the headphone jack on the wireless mic receiver, and the headphone level is not muted, then I would say that there is a serious problem with the wireless receiver. The fact taht a wired mic works with the XL1/MA-100 just adds to that conviction.

My thoughts exactly...an exchange couldn't hurt, just some loss of shooting time.
