Designed for professional vocalists and performers, the new flagship XD-V75 line includes handheld, lavaliere, headset and bodypack digital wireless systems.

“For performers who want wired mic audio performance and wireless freedom, the combination of Line 6 modelling and our class-leading digital wireless platform makes the latest XD-V systems the only choice,” says Steve Devino, live sound product manager at Line 6. “Proven on countless stages and tours worldwide,” he continued, “fourth-generation Line 6 digital wireless technology ensures the best possible performance experience with crystal-clear audio, rock-solid reliability and simple, license-free operation – worldwide.”

Ensuring faithful reproduction and stunning full-range audio clarity, XD-V systems all feature 10Hz - 20kHz frequency response and wide dynamic range (up to >120 dB).  Unlike analogue wireless technology, Line 6 digital wireless technology does not use companders or compress the audio signal in any way, and audio quality does not degrade with distance, inspiring vocalists to perform with confidence.  XD-V systems operate in the 2.4GHz band, which is free from interference due to TV broadcast, public safety announcements, cell phone towers and other transmitting devices.  Encoded DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) technology prevents reception of any audio interference from other 2.4 GHz devices.

XD-V handheld systems feature a selection of up to 10 spectacular models of the world’s most popular vocal microphones.  Using this incredibly diverse sonic palette, vocalists can choose the perfect microphone sound to match their voice and style of performance.

For active spoken-word performers, instrumentalists or singers who require a hands-free solution, XD-V bodypack systems offer selectable EQ filter models, tailored for a wide range of vocal and instrumental applications.  XD-V75 systems feature nine EQ filter models, six tailored for vocal applications and three specifically for instrument use.  XD-V55 bodypack systems have three selectable vocal EQ filter models, while the XD-V35 systems offer a single voice-optimized model.
