I need to get a wireless mic system with a lapel type mic. I bought this AZDEN WM Pro and I should have tested it out before I bought it. The sound quality sucks and it's not in stereo!

I need to find something that has great quality sound and in stereo that is wireless. Any leads? I am shooting a Canon 1DX DSLR.

Thank you in advance!!

If someone can recommend a complete system with a lapel transmitter to a receiver to my camera. It would be nice if I could get a system that has two transmitter so if i have two people I want to record talking at the same time.

The nature of a lapel/lav mic is such that they aren't going to be stereo. They are designed to pick up one source, what's going to be on the other channel?

The Zoom H4n and I think DR-40 are both handheld stereo microphones that will mix two lav microphones as well as capture stereo sound at the same time (so three sources of audio mixed into one receiver, the handheld microphone).

John is right though, Lav microphones capture mono because it wouldn't make any sense to capture someones voice in Stereo as it originates from only one direction.

The Audio Technica AT-1800 series can do what you need, they have a package with utilizes a two channel cam mounted receiver with two body-pack transmitters.

This is an example of one such setup on a commercial camcorder utilizing XLR audio inputs, obviously if you are connecting this to a HDSLR you would need to include a dual XLR to 3.5 MM TRS adapter.
