Suited for installed sound applications and working bands, Shure's new SLX Wireless Systems offers the company’s patented Audio Reference Companding technology with an innovative setup complete with automatic synchronization. SLX supports up to 20 compatible systems (area-dependent).

The company’s patented Audio Reference Companding uses a variable compression ratio, resulting in the elimination of wireless artifacts during quiet passages and superior dynamic range.

Utilizing Auto Frequency Selection and Auto Transmitter Setup, the system scans the wireless landscape and identifies a clear channel instantly. Then, guided by an infrared link, at the touch of a button the transmitter automatically syncs with the receiver. With more than 960 operating frequencies across 24 MHz of UHF bandwidth, users can quickly and easily set up 20 systems in a given location (area-dependent).

Each rugged metal SLX Wireless receiver utilizes diversity technology to improve reception and minimize dropouts. The receiver is outfitted with rackmount hardware, detachable 1/4-wave antennas, a backlit LCD, 1/4-inch and XLR output connectors, frequency and power lockouts, an In-Line power supply and a rear panel volume control. Finally, the multifunction LCD shows group, channel, frequency, transmitter battery strength and locked/unlocked status.

SLX's handheld and bodypack transmitters both present users with a choice of Shure's microphones, a timed backlit LCD, frequency and power lockouts, 300 feet of operating range and operate on two AA batteries for eight hours of continuous use. The bodypack transmitter works with headworn, lavalier and instrument microphones and cables. Handheld transmitters are offered with SM58, SM86, Beta 58A, Beta 87A and Beta 87C capsules.
