Alrighty, then. Just found a phone number for Xwire (thanks, Techno Geek Toys - http://www.otheroom.com/namm98/Techno.htm), so here's the skinny:
They no longer have a website, but the person I spoke with was very helpful. Xwire is now doing design work for Sennheiser. As you said in your message, Robin, Tour Supply (http://www.toursupply.com) has the 905 in stock. The person at Xwire said that Tour Supply bought up the last of their stock, which were made in the past year. So it's not old, dusty stuff.
She also said that Xwire has completed one design project for Sennheiser, who bought the technology from Xwire. The Sennheiser product is the Digital 1000:
16-bit A/D-D/A conversion for CD quality sound
No compander circuit! Wired sound on a wireless device!
4 user-selectable frequencies
Quadiversity Receiver incorporates four internal antennas, all microprocessor-controlled for freedom from dropouts
Scanner-proof digital transmission for eavesdrop-free peace of mind
DIGITAL 1091 (Handheld mic) MSRP $895.00
DIGITAL 1092 (Instrument bodypack) MSRP $795.00
DIGITAL 1093 (Lavalier bodypack) MSRP $895.00
(Not available online, please visit your local Sennheiser dealer!)
The above is from http://www.sennheiserusa.com/pages/products/rf/d1000.htm
The description loos very similar to the Xwire 905, but for $45.00 USD more.
At least now we have some choices.
p.s. I'll send this directly to you, since it's been almost 3 months since you posted your question. -r-
