Are PSM700 components compatible with PSM900 and PSM1000 components?

The combination of PSM700 components with PSM900 or PSM1000 components can work reasonably well from an audio and RF standpoint because these systems use the same stereo pilot tone and a similar enough companding scheme. The comp...


Are PSM600 components compatible with PSM900 and PSM1000 components?

The short answer is: not recommended. While it is true that these systems share the same stereo pilot tone and there are certain frequency band combinations that overlap, the companding scheme is quite different and will yield au...
