Shure’s new GLX-D Wireless system uses Shure’s LINKFREQ Automatic Frequency Management system to scan the 2.4GHz RF spectrum for all the best possible channels free of interference and then automatically sends that information to both the transmitter and the receiver. While you’re using your GLX-D system, if a new source of RF interference pops up, the receiver and transmitter will seamlessly move together to a clear frequency with no audio signal drop out—like it never happened.
The frequency-agile GLX-D Digital Wireless Systems come in traditional body pack and handheld transmitters, including vocal, headset and presenter systems, as well as the new Guitar Pedal Receiver.
A great idea for guitar pedal boards, the Guitar Pedal Receiver features an integrated tuner, and is about the size of a stomp pedal. It runs on standard pedal power and is programmable to mute its audio output signal (to the rest of your pedal board and/or guitar amp) for silent tuning.
Each GLX-D transmitter runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 16 hours of continuous use over a 10,000-hour lifetime—the equivalent of up to 2,500 AA batteries. In a pinch, if you forget to charge it, you’ll only spend about 15 minutes charging it for up to 1.5 hours of continuous use. Additionally, the standard GLXD4 receiver has a built-in, front panel battery charging port and a LCD showing (remotely) the battery life status of the transmitter in hours and minutes.
Shure GLX-D Wireless Systems prices begin at $561 MSRP/$449 MAP. Check out http://shure.com for more.
