PATENTED LINE 6
DIGITAL WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY.
Industry-leading innovation. Cutting-edge performance.
Relay® is the number one digital guitar wireless system—and for good reason. Since its debut, Line 6® digital wireless technology has racked up awards and proven that it offers superior audio quality and reliability compared to analog wireless technology. Line 6 digital wireless technology is the most highly developed in the market and continues to set standards in simplicity and performance.
DIGITAL WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY.
Light years ahead of the rest.
Our digital wireless story began in 2006, when we developed the first digital wireless systems worthy of touring on the road. We're now in our 4th generation of wireless technology, and continue refining and updating to meet the challenges musicians face. All along, we've maintained our commitment to offering tone-loving guitarists the best-sounding wireless on the planet. And we've worked hard to make sure our systems are affordable and accessible to everyone ready to cut the cable.
NO COMPRESSION. EVER.
The only wireless system that never squashes your signal.
Analog wireless systems use the FM radio band to transmit to the receiver. FM radio requires that the audio be compressed to avoid bumping into the channels on either side of the one you are transmitting on. Compression is achieved by reducing gain above a certain level, which has the effect of flattening out the audio. In other words, your sine waves become squared off. Noise is also introduced from the FM process, further reducing the signal-to-noise ratio. As the transmitter gets further from the receiver this noise increases causing noticeable hiss. So the recovered signal is squared off and has noise added to it. Digital wireless systems don't use compressors or expanders and the signal is binary, so it is not affected by noise. Line 6 has been in the digital wireless game far longer than any of our competition. Our promise to our customers is to provide the purest possible signal quality from input to output. Therefore we don't use any form of data compression to provide bandwidth for additional channels. After all, why would you want your digital signal to experience the kind of signal loss caused by MP3-style compression? Line 6 provides the cleanest and most accurate transmission path of any competitive product in its class.
Reliable guitar wireless you can trust.
Traditional analog wireless systems are plagued by interference from TV broadcasts, white space devices and countless other sources. Relay operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band, so there’s no danger of these external sources wreaking havoc with your audio signal. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the most advanced, reliable digital wireless solution available.
Your guitar signal. Loud and clear.
Line 6 digital wireless guitar systems use propietary technologies to prevent audio interference from other 2.4GHz devices. Encoded DCL™(Digital Channel Lock) technology distinguishes your Relay audio from other third-party signals—including Wi-Fi, laptops, smart phones and tablets—ensuring the integrity of your signal.
Have Relay, will travel.
With other guitar wireless systems, you have to worry about licensing, frequency coordination, and other technical hassles before you can even get started. Relay eliminates those worries. Relay systems are already frequency coordinated and operate license-free worldwide. Simply pick a channel and start playing.
