The system that I am most familiar with is the Sennheiser G3 UHF ( I own two of these ) which does come with a cable to output audio to XLR inputs. I am very happy with the audio quality of this system but the lav mic it comes with should be replaced. ( it's not terrible but it's not great ) I would recommend only buying the BAND A version if you live in the United States because the 600 Mhz and 700 Mhz frequencies have been repurposed in the US, so it won't be legal to operate the BAND B or BAND G versions of the Sennheiser G3 wireless system.

Sennheiser have come out with a next generation system called Sennheiser AVX, which is digital and uses 1.9 Ghz frequencies, it comes with a much better quality LAV mic, and it uses encryption to guarantee security of your signal. I haven't tried it yet, but it's supposed to be better than the older G3 system which was already very good.

On the low cost side of things there's a new system from Azden called the PRO-XD which operates at 2.4 Ghz frequencies. It costs $200 and appears to be pretty good as long as you replace the LAV mic it comes with. I normally wouldn't go near Azden audio products, but this one seems like a good product.

Audio is just so crucial, it's worth investing in. I'd get a system you can grow into, like the G3 system. Here's the link to the US legal version Guy mentioned above:

Then when you're ready, upgrade to something like the Countryman B6. These things are nearly invisible, they're so small! Just make sure your connector works on the sennheiser system... like this one:

Best of luck!
