IMG Stageline TXS-686 8-way wireless UHF microphone receiver (672.000-696.975 MHz)
This 8-channel multifrequency receiver unit with UHF PLL technology supports the addition of up to eight wireless handheld microphones or wireless beltpacks (with headset or lapel microphones) or a combination of each. The microphones are bought separately and can be found via the Related Products links at the bottom of this page. This system is very popular with schools and drama groups.
A mixed signal of the eight receiver sections is available at the jack LINE OUT (14) on the rear of the unit, so this 8-way microphone receiver can be connected into one channel of a mixing desk or directly into the back of an active speaker which has a MIC IN. Very handy! Individual microphone volumes can simply be adjusted on the receiver. Of course if you want to, each microphone output can be connected into its own channel on a larger mixing desk.
IMPORTANT: This system operates within the 672.000-696.975 MHz bandwidth and as such does require an annual operating licence from Ofcom in order to use it legally, which is around £28 per microphone per year. https://pmse.ofcom.org.uk/feecalc/radiomiccalc.aspx
