I bought the PA300+UHF in part because I already have a Califone boombox that is good quality so I went with Califone again. I like that the system has selectable frequencies so it does not interfere with other teachers and the Infrared system doesn’t break up. I have already purchased 5 of these PA systems and recommended them to other teachers!”
