    Portable PA system recommendation? (for public meeting use)

    My workplace is looking to acquire an easy-to-transport PA system to use at public meetings. Less than $400 is ideal.

    Our needs are:
    1) Use for meetings, indoors, with crowds of <150-200
    2) One lapel mic with one (or ideally two) additional hand-helds included in package (this allows for public Q&A)
    3) It can be plug-in or battery-charged - that's a non-issue

    Just wondering if anyone here has experience buying such equipment, what you have, how it worked out for you, etc. I thought I would ask other planners since I imagine our needs are similar.

    Portable PA system recommendation

    I've had extensive experience as a public radio executive and a musician with this sort of equipment. I'd recommend a Roland CM30 PA unit coupled with a Shure SM58 microphone. That mic is so sturdy that it will take any abuse. I'd recommend a company that sells the stuff, but don't want to risk spam filtering. If you go to facebook(dot)com(slash)baileyjamesrichard you can message me if you'd like.
