At £265 this digital wireless system is a snip RODE have set the bar even higher and they have cleverly integrated the antennas. I have just invested in a Sony Hybrid radio kit but you can be sure if this is as good as it sounds it will be part of my increasing RODE production kit as soon as it becomes available.
Question… I don’t understand why RODE have not included a 3.5mm to XLR cable with the new digital wireless system, it’s standard in every other radio mic kit ? Answer…You buy the VXLR that allows you to connect your mini jack to XLR adapter.

RØDELink represents the next generation of digital wireless systems. Using a series II 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption, it is able to constantly monitor and hop between frequencies to maintain the strongest possible signal level at a range of up to 100 metres (over 100 yards). The RØDELink Filmmaker Kit provides everything you need to start shooting video wirelessly, including a receiver, transmitter and broadcast-grade lavalier microphone. The receiver (RX-CAM) features an OLED display with information on level, battery status (receiver and transmitter), mute and channel selection. The unit can be mounted on a standard camera shoe mount, 3/8″ thread or belt-clip, and for added versatility the shoe mount can be located in one of two positions. The lightweight transmitter (TX-BELT) can be fitted to a belt or clothing and features a locking thread to ensure the microphone connection is as secure as possible. RØDE’s omnidirectional Lavalier microphone is included in the kit to provide the highest possible audio reproduction quality.
