Your only options for wireless is the Sennheiser g2 system or the AT1800. My strong preference would be the AT. Dual receiver, more reliable as its diversity, and the ability to use the awesome AT899cw lav. Both systems offer butt plug for handheld mic, although you have to upgrade the Sennheiser to the 500 series to get phantom power. B&H has a deal right now that will get you the dual receiver AT1800, with two AT899cw lavs, butt plug, dynamic mic (not specified, but it's an Electrovoice in the picture), with hard case for $2,000. Great deal, you ask me. In fact, I'm buying it myself. Come on tax refund!

Hi Damien,

I've got a PDX10 too (not that it matters) and this is the gear I'm using with it:

Sennheiser ew100ENG G2, wireless UHF system. So far, pretty happy with it. Have had problems in NYC finding open channels sometimes.

Sennheiser ME66 shotgun mic, I love this mic. I also use it as a handheld on occasion. Great price to quality ratio in my opinion. I picked it up used at BH.

Can't remember my boom pole model and shock mount models off the top of my head. Gitzo and audio technica I think, not high-end, under $200 for both at B&H.

For wired lav, I have Sony ECM50 I picked up used on ebay. Don't use it that often.
