Four new digital wireless microphone systems offer unmatched wireless performance, simplicity and sound quality around the world

CALABASAS, Calif.—August 20, 2010—Line 6, Inc. (line6.com), the industry leader in digital modeling technology for music-creation products, launches its new line of XD-V series digital wireless microphone systems.

The XD-V family includes two handheld microphone systems and two beltpack systems that include lavalier microphones. Each system delivers a higher standard of wireless performance, simplicity and sound quality that is unmatched by traditional analog wireless technology.

“Whether you’re a seasoned pro who demands impeccable performance around the world or a budget-minded performer looking for a problem-free wireless system, only XD-V digital wireless systems have the premium features you need,” remarked Don Boomer, Microphone Product Line Manager at Line 6. “Fourth-generation Line 6 digital wireless technology ensures rock-solid performance, simple operation and crystal-clear audio — license free.”

XD-V30 and XD-V70, the two handheld microphone systems, take advantage of the Line 6 leadership position in digital modeling technology and offer high-quality microphone models. XD-V70 suits every vocal application with seven selectable sounds and timbres based on the world’s most popular live-sound mics. XD-V30 has a single microphone model based on a leading live-sound mic.

The handheld mics also feature cardioid polar patterns, removable microphone capsules for polar pattern and frequency response customization, and convenient internally mounted antennas.

The two beltpack systems, XD-V30L and XD-V70L, feature internal antennas, convenient quarter-inch inputs, and condenser lavalier microphones.

XD-V digital wireless systems provide reliable operation with exclusive DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) and PDP™ (Proprietary Data Placement) technologies. These advancements provide a powerful one-two punch that defends the wireless transmissions against audible audio interference. Plus, the digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4GHz band, which successfully avoids interference from high-powered sources. The 2.4GHz band also allows for license-free use worldwide.

Delivering superior sound quality, XD-V digital wireless systems are free of companders that degrade audio by compressing and expanding the wireless signal. Each system’s audio specs (including 10Hz - 20kHz frequency response, up to >120 dB dynamic range, and 24-bit conversion) are closer to those of a cabled microphone than those of a traditional analog wireless system.

XD-V digital wireless microphone systems are available now. For more information, please visit www.line6.com/xd-v.
