Newbie Question -- multiple mics

Apologies if this has already been answered in another thread -- I did a couple of different searches, but was unable to find anything..

I'm looking to get a DVX100a (with it's dual XLR ports) -- and wireless mics (lavaliers).. I'll be mic'ing up 4 different people.. I realize I need to purchase at least 4 transmitters (& microphones), but how many receivers will be needed to accomplish this task?

I've long since considered the iRiver solution, but I'm not interested..

Thanks in advance!

wireless mic
Each wireless mic transmits on its own independent RF freq. So a recevier will be required for each mic used. They are usually sold as a package. But there are unit available with multiple mics and receivers in one package. Try Nady, or audio Technicia or Shure. Stay away from the Radio Shack and cheap junk. You get what u pay for

In addition to the 4 transmitters and 4 receivers, you'll also need at least a 3-input mixer. A 4-input mixer would give you full control, but of course you'll still be limited to the 2 recording channels of your camera.

Thanks guys - that's exactly what I was wondering.

I'm going to peruse the many threads comparing UHF to VHF, but at this point I don't want the hassles that come with cross-signals on the VHF option.
