For professional vocal sound in the most demanding of live situations, the GLXD24/B87A combines Shure's incredible proprietary digital wireless technology with the silky smooth and detailed sound reproduction of the brilliant BETA 87A supercardioid condenser capsule. The GLXD24/B58 System is made up of the following:
Desktop digital wireless receiver combines automatic frequency management with true digital diversity for a solid signal and excellent audio clarity. Features include license-free operation in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, LINKFREQ Automatic Frequency Management, adjustable gain control, and battery charging bay.
The BETA87A with GLXD2 handheld transmitter is the supercardioid condenser vocal microphone offering a smooth, tailored response for warm, accurate sound . It combines automatic frequency management with true digital diversity for a rock-solid wireless signal with exceptional digital audio clarity. Shure proprietary Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries provide up to 16 hours of continuous use. Depending on the operation mode, you will get up to 16 hours of continuous use and has an operating range of 20-30 m under typical conditions.
- What are the characteristics of the Beta 87A? - The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the "boomy" sound often associated with close pick-up. The tailored frequency response with its presence rise, brightens the upper midrange and helps the vocals cut through the mix.
- The tight supercardioid pattern provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. It operates on phantom power.
- What receiver comes with the Beta Digital Wireless Vocal System? - The Beta Digital Wireless Vocal System comes with the Digital Wireless Receiver GLXD4. It combines automatic frequency management with true digital diversity for a rock-solid wireless signal with exceptional digital audio clarity.
- Shure proprietary Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries provide up to 16 hours of continuous use.
- How does the automatic frequency management work? - The Digital Wireless System feature LINKFREQ, an Automatic Frequency Management, making it easy to rely on seamless, crystal-clear audio.
- The receiver continuously analyses the available frequency spectrum.
- The receiver and transmitter automatically link using the best set of available frequencies.
- If interference occurs, the receiver and transmitter intelligently move together to the best open frequencies, without ANY audio interruption.
- It's that simple. No buttons to push or controls to adjust.
- How many musicians can use this system simultaneously? - Depending on the operation mode, up to 8 compatible systems can be operated in parallel.
- In "Automatic mode" (with LINKFREQ enabled) up to 5 systems can be run in parallel.
- In "Manual mode" (with LINKFREQ disabled) up to 8 systems can be run in parallel.
- Rechargeable battery information - Shure proprietary Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries provide up to 16 hours of continuous use. Transmitter runtime is 1.5 hours with only 15 minutes of charging, (3.0 h in 30 min. / 6.0 h in 60 min. / 16 h in 3 h)
