Which mic system for wedding/events

I am looking at a new wireless system.
I currently have the Azden WMS-Pro but I am not happy with the quality of the audio.
I have narrowed down my choices to either the Sennheiser Evolution G2 EW100 or the Azden 300LT. Both seem like they will do the job and give clear audio. I have some reviews on the Senn but I can't find any reviews on the Azden 300LT.

Does anyone have any experience with the Azden, or could recommend one over the other?

Thanks
Jim

You'll likely get lots of answers to that one and you might benefit from searching this forum.

For what it's worth, I'm using (and have been for many years) the Samson Airline Micro system, with good results. However, based on the many positive comments I've seen in this forum, I'm seriously looking into the Sennheiser G2 system. I've found lots of details and acceptable pricing at one of the big retailers. Now, I'm headed to the forum sponsors to check out their deals.

Which Senn to choose

After looking at B&H Photo for the Senn Evolution EW100 G2 there are different frequency ranges A,B & C. Which one do you choose?

Thanks

there is a link on sennheisers page, (http://www.sennheiserusa.com/newsite...qfinder-ew.asp) you need to look at your area of the country and see what could possibly interfere. In my primary shooting area range C was the best for me.

On places to order your set look to northern sound and light. I got my EW500 ENG G2 kit for $931.00. The 500 was the right choice too, the belt packs are much more durable, and there are a few extra features. I borrowed a friends 100 series a couple weekends ago and was somewhat disappointed in it.
