Q: Which wired microphone is compatible with the Infrared Classroom Audio System? Is it PADM-510 or PADM-515?
A: The PADM-510 features a ¼” plug and the PADM-515 features a XLR plug. The Infrared Classroom Audio Systems (PA-IRSYS, PAIRSYS-B, PAIRSYSCS, PAIRSYSBCS) can accommodate two wired microphones since all of them feature one ¼” microphone jack and one XLR microphone jack. Both PADM-510 and PADM-515 are compatible with the Infrared Classroom Audio Systems. If two wired microphones were to be used simultaneously, one needs to be PADM-510 and the other needs to be PADM-515.
