XD-V55 Features:

  • 300 foot (100 meter) range
  • 12 Channels supporting up to 12 simultaneous systems
  • 24-Bit digital audio signal; providing the audio response of a cable without companding
  • 10Hz to 20 kHz bandwidth, with up to 117 dBA dynamic range
  • Microphone Modeling (on the Handheld Transmitter)
  • EQ/Filter Modeling for headset, instrument and lavalier mics (on the Bodypack Transmitter)

NOTE: Please do NOT use Stereo (TRS) 1/4" connector/cables with the 1/4" unbalanced Output Jack on the XD-V55. The ring of a stereo cable is used for data transmissions in factory setup and may cause computer-like noise to be coupled into your audio signal if you use a Stereo 1/4" cable. Please use a standard 1/4" MONO cable for the unbalanced Audio Out on the XD-V55 Receiver.


Dynamic Filter: engage this feature on the receiver to minimize stage rumble or handling noise.

  4. Check the LCD Display; reading should change to RF-1 in place of CH, indicating that the Transmitter is now in RF1, which is what the older XD-V70 and XD-V30 Receivers operate on

To revert back to RF2 Mode, repeat the above process in Step #3. The Transmission Mode that is set will be remembered when the Transmitter is powered off.


Does USB 3.0 create interference in the 2.4GHz frequency range?


USB 3.0 computer cables and peripherals, including hard drives, are known to emit radio frequency interference throughout the 2.4GHz band, which results in reduced range and/or performance for any 2.4GHz device in its proximity (including wireless keyboard or mouse, WiFi, etc.). We recommend placing any digital wireless receivers at least two meters away from the USB 3.0 device and its cabling.


Below is a link to a study by Intel regarding this interference.
