Diversity receiver


What the heck is a diversity receiver?

I found this in a rather wet laptop bag. It was heavy, so I decided to open it up to see what was inside. Because, y’know, laptop bags don’t always contain laptops. I wanted to see if it was worth bringing it back.

I didn’t know what it was, so I had to Google it.

Also inside the bag were:

I finally figured out, with the help of Google, that the bigger component is a wireless receiver, and the smaller component is a body pack linked to a wired microphone.

Put them together and what you have is a stage speaker who speaks into a microphone. The body pack converts the sound into energy that is transmitted to the wireless receiver. The receiver is connected to a speaker that converts the energy back to sound.

Estimated retail price: $$750
