XD-V70 to V75 & Beyond - A More Convenient Upgrade Path.

In my case, (or, more literally, cases) Line Sixers...

Eight of the older XD-V70 receivers are "captive" as two racks of four in Gator's magnificent GM4WR's:

My new ninth is an equally portable, stand-alone V-75 kit, with its "own" THH-12 handheld, housed in another piece of Gator-genius, a GM-1WEVA:

Aside from being a ninth channel that's fully operable while still in its case, this is now my "USB-able" Line 6 Monkey future upgrade "mule".

It's made it quite easy to correctly place V-70 transmitters for upgrading via the V-75's "B" antenna as well as upgrade my older receivers "in situ" via a male to male 6.5mm headphone-style "balanced" lead.   

There's only one downside...

Having gators, monkeys and mules in captivity may lead to a legal requirement for zoological accreditation.

The Gator case doesn't quite fit, so we had them make one especially to fit XD-V's.  You can get it from any Line 6 dealer

Indeed, Don...

I guess I should have emphasised the "EVA" part of the Gator shoulder bag in question.

The older (but still current) GM-1W does require a modicum of modification and fractious fiddling for it to work...

...But I'm guessing that the latest GM-1WEVA is the revision that arose from your kind representations on our behalf.

Importantly, nothing can detract from (nor have I seen the equal of) Line 6's genius, via existing connectors and close proximity RF linking, that enables this in-rack future-proofing.

Zoologically speaking, I'd also like to express my relief that Line 6 has resisted any possible Mac-inspired temptation to move each revision of Monkey further up the primate chain.

There are already more than enough gorillas in location audio.
