Sennheiser SK 5212-II and EK 3241 Wireless - Less Is More

Sennheiser SK 5112-II and a nickel
Shrinking spectrum and challenges to hiding a body pack transmitter are driving location and studio audio people to find better solutions. One of these solutions is the Sennheiser SK 5212-II transmitter. 

The retail price is $2,349, for just the transmitter and another $2,100 for the EK 4231 mono receiver, for a total of $4,400. 

I found a $3,750 Bundle Price online for both transmitter and receiver that also includes the AA battery power kit for the EK 4231 receiver (batteries not included). 

There's a big price difference between these pieces and a Sennheiser G3 transmitter and receiver kit for $629.95 at B&H. Read on to discover why.
