XD-V70 Handheld Transmitter

Recommended Posts

Hello, I own several XD-V70 receivers and TB12 transmitters, however I am looking to use handheld transmitters instead. I saw a post on this forum that mentioned the XD-V75 transmitter (V75-HHTX) can be used as a handheld for the XD-V70 series as well, however there was some disagreement on that in the post. Can someone clarify if the V75-HHTX will work for the older V70 receiver? Thank You!


Here is the model I am looking at buying:

My understanding is that the 75 has a greater set of features than the 70.  From memory a 70 transmitter can work with a 75 receiver, but the 75 transmitter may try to use channels the 70 receiver does not have.  You can of course specify channels and avoid using unsupported ones at the receiver.



I have 3 radio transmitter/receiver sets which are XD-V35, XD-V70 & XD-V75.  I have used all combinations of mics with receivers. 



Quoting from the website: “

XD-V systems enable professional bands or church and theatrical productions to use up to 14 systems simultaneously. Relay® G30, G50, G55 and XD-V35, XD-V55 and XD-V75 systems share the same technology, so it’s easy to combine handhelds, lavaliers, headsets and instruments within the same system—with the same incredible performance.* And since all share the same technology, mixing and matching is easy.

*Compatible units must be running same RF mode.

From the XD-V75 pilot manual available online under Support:

Compatibility With other line 6 wireless devices
The XD-V75 utilizes our latest digital wireless transmission method, and is fully channel compatible with the XD-V35, as well as Relay™ G30, Relay™ G50, and Relay™ G90 models that have Version 2 software running RF2 mode. Multiple units of any of these models can be mixed used within the same location as long as each is on a unique channel and no more than 14 are used simultaneously.

The XD-V75 receiver can also automatically receive transmissions from the previous generation of Line 6 wireless products, which include the XD-V30, XD-V70, and Relay™ G30, Relay™ G50, and Relay™ G90 models with Version software, now referred to as RF1 mode. However, it is not recommended to mix usage of the RF1 and RF2 modes within the same location due to the channel frequencies in each system not being compatible.

If an XD-V75 unit is being added to a setup that already includes any devices running in RF1 mode, the XD-V75 can be used to update the older devices to run RF2 mode by using an internet-connected computer attached to the XD-V75’s USB port. See the Firmware Updating Procedure section for more information.


Alternatively, the XD-V75 transmitters can be setup to operate in RF1 mode if it is necessary to use the transmitters with older Line 6 receivers. To set the THH12 or TBP12 transmitters into the RF1 mode, enter Setup mode to display the current channel, then while holding down the SELECT button press and release the ON/MUTE button on the THH12 or VALUE button on the TBP12. The display will briefly show [XD-V75 RF1] or [XD-V75 RF2] to indicate whether it is operating in the old or new mode, respectively. This setting is retained when powering off, so as a reminder the display will also show this indication [RF1 or RF2] each time power is turned on. The XD-V75 receiver will display a [To] on the far right of the display to indicate while communicating with a RF1 software transmitter.



So the answer is yes you can mix and match.  You may want to do a firmware upgrade or limit the system to RF1 setting.



Trust that helps.
