—XD-V70 named “Best Audio Product: Wireless Microphone System”—

CALABASAS, Calif.—November 18, 2010—Line 6, Inc. (, the industry leader in digital modeling and digital wireless technologies, is proud to announce that its XD-V70 digital wireless microphone system took home an award for “Best Audio Product: Wireless Microphone System” last week at the WFX New Product Awards.

Held at the Worship Facilities Conference & Expo (WFX) in Atlanta, Georgia, and presented by Church Production and Worship Facilities magazines, the WFX New Product Awards recognize the most innovative, cutting-edge technology products in the industry.

“XD-V70 is quickly emerging as one of the premiere hand-held wireless mic systems in the business,” remarked Don Boomer, the Line 6 Wireless Sales Engineer, who was on-hand at the event and received the award. “We’re honored by the award and excited that our digital wireless technology is leading the charge into a new wireless age.”

XD-V70 earned the coveted award with its unmatched wireless performance, simplicity, and sound quality. Seven selectable, push-button Line 6 microphone models enable XD-V70 to reproduce sounds and timbres inspired by the world’s most popular live-sound mics. XD-V70 also features a high-performance dynamic-cardioid microphone capsule which, for added flexibility, can be removed and other popular brands’ capsules can be used.

Commenting on the unique simplicity of XD-V microphone systems, Boomer added that “the extremely simple setup of these mics is proving to be very popular with House of Worship users who often rely on volunteer operators. The mics are digital and require no adjusting – users can simply power up, pick a channel, and go.”

The recent FCC decision to allow Super Wi-Fi in the UHF band traditionally used by wireless microphone systems has generated some uncertainty for wireless users. Operating in the 2.4 GHz band, XD-V digital wireless systems give users confidence that their microphone system won’t need to be replaced any time soon.

The XD-V digital wireless family includes XD-V30 (handheld mic) as well as XD-V30L and XD-V70L (beltpack systems with lavalier mics). Each XD-V system provides reliable operation with exclusive DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) and PDP™ (Proprietary Data Placement) technologies to defend their transmissions against audible audio interference, a 2.4GHz broadcasts for license-free use worldwide, and superior audio specs.

XD-V digital wireless systems are available now.
