CAD Audio GXL Dual Wireless Systems Review


CAD Audio's value-oriented GXL Series of studio microphones, headphones and accessories now has two new wireless systems: the GXL-V VHF (185.8 to 213.4MHz) and the GXL-U UHF (543.1 to 593.5MHz). These are transmitter/receiver bundles with a choice of either a handheld microphone or body pack transmitters supplied with a guitar cable and a head worn condenser boom mic.

Both the GXL-V VHF and the GXL-U UHF systems each have dual receivers inside side-by-side so that two transmitters‚ signals can be receiver simultaneously. One transmitter might be the handheld microphone and the other a body pack transmitter for guitar or head-worn boom mic.

The receivers have green indicator LEDs that show solid radio signal strength and good and clear audio signals‚ or no. The receivers also have convenient volume controls for setting proper audio level to your mixer, PA system or musical instrument amp if you‚ using the body-pack transmitter for guitar or bass.

I like that the receivers have both professional XLR and 1/4- inch discrete outputs for each channel plus another XLR jack for a mix of the two channels‚ audio streams together.

I just love the affordable price point of these systems. CAD Audio's GXL-V VHF wireless is $129 MSRP and the CAD Audio GXL-U UHF wireless is $209 MSRP. For much more about these new wireless systems and the entire CAD Audio lineup, check out http://cadaudio.com.
