    Needed a quick Lav mic solution for some presenting at work. This was a great choice. Fired up quick. No real learning curve. Came in a nice case so we can move it around.

    We use this for our pastor. It is great, sounds good, looks good and is very reliable. Best bang for buck. The only reason I gave 4 stars for features is because Nady does not offer a single earworn mic

    I own the BT/HM-20U & HT versions of this series.

    The HM-20U is directional & has excellent feedback rejection. (However I choose to buy & use JK Global’s MIC-J 060 headset which is far easier & quicker to transition between different users. Some users even have set aside the Countryman E6 on hand for the MIC-J 060 mic.)

    First thing that must be said: The “Download Manual” document contains inaccurate “Mute (Squelch) Control” instructions regarding the “CW” & “CCW” instructions.
    Below are intructions that reflect the Receiver’s actual behavior:
    – Fully CW position allows the most reception range.
    – Fully CCW position allows the least reception range & Mutes more.
    (This error has made my life miserable, because I read the manual on this setting when heading outdoors & believed it & set both units for what I thought was max range. So for over a year after that event both units were muting on us at ridiculously short distance from the receiver. I finally decided to ignore directions & adjust to the opposite extreme & now I can rely on them again.)

    The HT shares the same dynamic mic. capsule as all the other Nady wireless systems I’ve used so if you’ve ever heard any of Nady’s other wireless mic.’s, you probably know what this one sounds like. It has a detailed & very intelligible, near condenser like, sound. Maybe a bit excessively hyped around 6.6 kHz. but it helps when placed really close to the mouth. The built in wind screen doesn’t filter out pops super well but a wind screen can help that if desred. The mic. works very well in a Master of Ceremonies role since it is not super directional. That said, it constantly surprises me how little feedback we get when people talk right next to our main speakers. For audio quality, especially important for singers, this can’t compete with Nady’s excellent SPC-20 hard wired condenser vocal mic. but is still acceptable. That said for the money this wireless system works well overall.

    Auto channel scanning & IR syncing work well. The only thing I miss over other more expensive systems is having the Battery level being visible on the receiver display for the tech folks to verify during long events remotely.

    I love the metal HT & solid feel of the solid metal BT transmitter. It inspires confidence & prevents over tightening of plastic ones that can crack.

    If we could screw on a smoother mic. capsule to improve the HT like with a SPC-20 even shortening battery life, I’d rate the W-1KU HT system 5 stars in a heartbeat.

    I did buy one of the CM-60 instrument mic.’s thinking I could use it with the BT unit. I learnd that mic. is way to hot for this pack even on the -30db setting for many instruments. So it would be nice at times if it had more adjustment.

    These systems are much quieter as well when it comes to generating system noise than the Shure PGX systems when the gain on your mixer needs to boost the volume a lot for a quiet application as well.

    Very Nice!
