Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Both transmitters and receiver SEEMED well made. Upon powering up, one channel was garbage right out of the box. Interference so bad it was unusable. This was obviously defective out of the box. The other transmitter worked OK. Range was good, but it did introduce some significant white noise. Tolerable.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The best feature is the price. 2 Channels of wireless is a bargain. If you can stand a little noise, and need a 2 transmitter/receiver setup go for it. Just keep in mind, it is entry level. I'm sure for the price, the quality is competitive.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. Plug in the instrument, set the gain on the transmitter, set the volume on the receiver. GO.
How is the tone?
Overall, I did not notice any degradation of the tone (on the channel that worked)... only the white noise hiss that was added.
Your general opinion of this product.
If both channels worked out of the box, I'd call it a pretty decent deal. Again, it's entry level so keep that in mind. I will say again that the components really had a decent feel to them, and the AKG name gave me the confidence to try it out. Mine is going back and I'm jumping up to a Line6 digital.
