Wireless recording is expensive. But TASCAM's DR-10X plug-on recorder connects to any dynamic or battery-powered condenser microphone via XLR to record for easy post-production synchronization.
The DR-10X is about the size of a plug-on wireless transmitter. It's powered by a AAA battery and records to MicroSD. You can also connect headphones via the 3.5 mm jack for real-time monitoring or playback.
More than just a recorder, TASCAM packed in some handy audio processing features: adjustable mic gain, low-cut filter, limiter, and automatic record level. The DR-10X also offers dual-record mode for simultaneous recording the same audio at 6 dB lower for extra headroom.
Tascam also put an infrared transmitter and receiver into the DR-10X to make for easy setup with multiple units.
The TASCAM DR-10X retails for $179.

This sounds like so much fun and ease to use. I wonder why you wouldn’t jump on it yourself, since you were recording at a setting this seems made for. Or, put in another way, will you use this and give us your honest impressions?
Thank you. I have loved these videos.
I really need to get my hands on one to try in my studio. But from what I can tell, the preamp isn’t as good as the Zoom H5 I was using. I’m hopeful that there will be a new Zoom competitor to this.
Ah. Thank you. I will stick with my H4N too then and deal with some cable. Love the option though.
The H4n also has low-quality preamps, but maybe about the same as the DR-10X.
