Line 6 X2 XDS-Plus
Line 6 Digital Wireless X2™ XDS Plus Now Available.
Line 6, Inc. announced that its X2™ XDS-Plus digital wireless system is available through authorized dealers. Designed specifically for working musicians, Line 6 says the X2 XDS-Plus combines portability with the advanced sonic clarity of high-quality cable and the superior RF performance of the company's X2 XDR95 rackmount system.
Housed in a metal chassis, the system features a proprietary compression-free digital format that is designed to provide the sound and feel of a direct wire connection, while its dual diversity (anti-jamming) technology is designed to ensure a clear and reliable signal, even in the presence of harsh RF interference. Additionally, the X2 XDS-Plus is 2009 compliant meaning that it's free from DTV and FCC licensing concerns and can roam without issue virtually anywhere throughout North and South America.
The X2 XDS-Plus draws its wired sound characteristics from Line 6's patent-pending digital technology. A 24-bit A/D converter at the bodypack transmitter is designed to capture the full dynamic range of incoming instrument, line-level or microphone signals, and then transfers them in digital format on two separate RF carrier frequencies. At the metal receiver, two BNC chassis mounted external antennae supply RF signals to two separate receiver sections contained within the chassis to deliver freedom from dropouts, multi-path cancellation, RF interference and noise.
Equipped with a multi-segment LED providing instant feedback to all integral system functions, the X2 XDS-Plus components are free from complicated setup procedures and multi-page menus. The metal receiver shows operating channel, diversity status, RF signal, audio level and remaining transmitter battery life in 20-minute increments. The bodypack transmitter shows operating channel, remaining battery life (in five one-hour increments) and audio level when signal is present. Both components offer five user-selectable operating channels.
X2 XDS-Plus includes all necessary antennae, 9V power adapter and batteries.
