The M2 Wireless In-Ear Monitor System is designed to make professional in-ear monitoring features accessible for performers who want to be free from the problems associated with floor wedges. The stereo monitor system offers Personal Mix Control, which gives each musician volume and mix control of two independent signals on stage, via easy-to-use controls on the M2R stereo body-pack receiver. The wireless UHF M2T Stereo Transmitter provides a choice of 100 selectable frequencies and is equipped with two XLR/¼” combo input connectors into which users can connect line-level inputs. While up to 10 complete M2 systems may be used on stage simultaneously, any number of M2R stereo receivers may be used on the same frequency with a single M2T stereo transmitter. These rugged systems are built to stand up to the inevitable bumps of life on the road, delivering clear, natural sound for touring and installed-sound uses.

The M2 is by far the best in-ear monitor system for the money!

I'm the soundman for a classic rock band that plays 3-4 times a month. We all work day jobs and only have 45 minutes to an hour for setup and sound check at various local clubs and sports bars. The stages are way too small and we have to be careful not to disturb the patrons who are eating and watching sporting events before we start our shows. Conventional monitors were out of the question because of the size, setup/ equalization time and poor acoustical conditions so in-ear monitors were the best solution. We use 3 M2 systems that have worked flawlessly for almost 2 years now. The bass player even dropped one of the recievers hard and bent the concentric pot but I was able to easily take it apart and bend it back with no problems.
The mix mode allowed me to send 1 aux mix from the board and a direct out from each singers channel to the transmitter that way they could turn up the vocal at their recievers and leave me alone to concentrate on the main mix. Having a low stage volume is critical to getting a great main mix when you play in small or poor acoustical venues and the M2's allow for not only a better monitor mix but a much cleaner main mix for the audience to enjoy.
I really miss the M2 in-ear monitors when I mix other bands and have to use their sound system with traditional floor monitors.
If you want an upgrade to your sound system and a superior monitor system to floor monitors run out to your LOCAL Audio Technica Dealer and get the M2 in-ear system!
Pros awesome value, pro quality, superior features to other brands
Cons none

Audio-Technica’s advanced M3 IEM system offers a full range of professional in-ear monitoring features, with a choice of 1321 UHF channels and easy-to-read LCD information displays on both transmitter and receiver for setting preferences. The stereo monitor system is equipped with Audio-Technica’s versatile Personal Mix Control, which allows volume and mix control of two independent signals on stage, via controls on the M3R stereo body-pack receiver. While up to 16 complete M3 systems may be used simultaneously, any number of M3R stereo receivers can operate on the same frequency with a single M3T stereo transmitter. The M3T Stereo Transmitter is equipped with two XLR/¼” combo input connectors into which users can connect line-level inputs (from a mixing console, for example). The M3T also offers a headphone output that allows you to monitor transmitter input signals directly.
 

Will using multiple M3R Stereo Receivers with the same M3T Stereo Transmitter create interference with current wireless microphones?

My church is looking to purchase 5 M3R Stereo Receivers and 1 M3T Stereo Transmitter. Will this create any interference with our current wireless microphones (which are Audio Technica 3000 Series)?
Not if you set the M3 transmitter to a different frequency other than the 3000 series system(s). It will work wonderfully!

M2 with M3R?

Could one use the M2 transmitter with an M3R receiver of the same band, "M" for example??
I called tech support and ask the same question because I wanted to be able to easily switch the frequency so I could hear each band member's different monitor mix to troubleshoot when they say they are having problems (which ALWAYS turn out to be user error on their part LOL)
You CANNOT use the M3 recievers with the M2 transmitter.

Can you use multiple receivers/headphone sets with one transmitter?

I have multiple singers who need the same overall monitor mix -- would be great if they can share one transmitter, tweaking volumes, etc. with their own receivers.
Yes you can,

whats better to use Band L or Bnad M? whats the deference

You should go to the frequency locator section in the support area then choose the M2 under product and your zip code that you will be using the wireless in. This will show you the available frequncies that you are able to use in your area and that way you can determine which band has the most freqs available.

How do you rack mount a single m2 unit?

The M2 transmitter comes with one short rack ear and one long rack ear in the box from the factory. This allows you to choose which side of your rack you want the unit to be postitioned on and helps to keep the antenna from blocking other rack gear.

How can I turn up the volume without overdriving the signal?

First of all: i´m very satisfied with the m2. Second: sorry for my english! :)
But nevertheless i have problems with the sound volume of the m2: alltough i turn the volume knob to MAX, the signal isn´t that loud. The result is a distorted signal.

so, how can i turn up the volume without overdriving the signal?
thanks for the help
First make sure you are not overdriving (going into the red) on the transmitter too hard. It is okay for the meters to light up the red LED on the meters occasionally with the peaks of the music but it should only just flicker into the red NOT light up the red constantly.
Next check to make sure the reciever is working in the same manner. Let's say you need more vocal volume it is always better to turn down the other instruments in the mix than to just keep trying to turn up the vocal. It may be better to start with the main instrument you need to be the loudest in that mix and bring up the other stuff from there.
Sometimes you have to find louder earbuds than the stock AT's and should look for a lower ohm rating ( which equals less resistance) compared to the ones you use now.
Hope this helps.
