I am aware of this previous question Wireless Guitar Systems. However it is nearly ten years old. The technology has probably changed and the emphasis of my question is different.
I am taking up guitar again after a long absence. Currently I'm playing mostly at home to get my skills back up to speed. I occasionally play at a social get-together. I would like to try wireless technology both at home and at the occasional gig away from home.
In reviews I see that some wireless systems can be sensitive to home broadband WiFi and produce annoying pinging noises constantly. Given that WiFi is so prevalent now (and that I also have it in my home), I wonder if Wifi interference is a regular problem these days.
Does anyone here have experience in this area and, if so, is it only the cheaper systems that have the problem? Does it make sense for me to start cheap and work my way up or will interference plague me no matter how much I spend?
I don't anticipate getting further than about 15 feet (4.5 m) from the receiver. At home my broadband WiFi and guitar equipment will all be in close proximity - within a radius of about 8 feet.
