Varies, typically one when doing stealth but if I'm w/ my SO and it's a show that we know an archive exists for where they would appreciate as many sources as possible I'll wire her up w/ a second set of mics. She loves that lol. If I'm testing new gear I always bring a backup rig, like what I did for Tool last year when running the Babynbox for the first time.

Your SO is way cool.  You can tell her I said so.

IEMs already have a latency issue (slight delay in hearing what the artist is singing) and adding encryption and a digital signal and then having unpack that would only add to latency. 

That technology has been around for ten years + and artists have resisted such technology.  Traditional wegie monitors have an edge in that regard and remain popular.

Lectrosonic has a digital IEM system. I've heard folks complain about the latency, altho that can be mitigated by connecting to a digital board DANTE system. Biggesr issue to me is folks complaining about the sound...sounds like the audio codec leaves a lot to be desired on the high end. Probably a lot of compromises made in order to keep latency down.
