In the meantime, it would not hurt to let your elected representatives know that wireless gear is important to what you do and that making us go back to all-wired stages would put a real crimp in a lot of performances. The forces on the other side are huge, with towering piles of cash that they’re not hesitant to spend. But politicians sometimes listen to voters, and enough calls and letters might buy us the time we need to develop a technology solution. Dynamic or Condenser? Back to the gear .

Your wireless stuff may seem like just another part of your musical gear, but remember that it is, in fact, a small radio station serving a single receiver, and as such, it falls under the authority of the Federal Communications Commission (the FCC). It works like this: There is a limited amount of space available in any given frequency band (AM, FM, UHF, VHF, and so on) and lots of competing interests trying to get a piece of that pie (actually, it is known as bandwidth). So the FCC decides not only how big a slice of that bandwidth you can have, but also how much power you can use to transmit in said frequency range.

You will also see XLR connectors meant to carry digital signals in what is called the AES/EBU format. The big difference between these and analog connections using these connectors is the quality of cable needed. Don’t even think about using a standard AV RCA cable or a standard mic cable; you need to use cable that is approved for digital signals, which usually means a lower-impedance, higherquality cable. What do you use them for? Most S/PDIF and AES/EBU connectors are used to transfer digital signals from something such as a DVD player or computer to the console, keeping it in the digital domain as long as possible.
