Shure SLX14/85

The Shure SLX Series wireless microphone system provides the performance and reliability needed for use in venues, sound reinforcement etc. The UHF system is available in up to 8 different bands, over a 24MHz spectrum. This system includes the SLX4 receiver, SLX1 bodypack transmitter and WL185 lavalier microphone.

The SLX4 Receiver is rack or desktop mountable and features a diversity antenna design. The diversity design allows dual antennas to compete for the strongest possible reception. XLR microphone-level and 1/4" phone-line-level outputs are featured. A comprehensive LCD display provides Frequency, Group and Channel information as well as transmitter battery status, audio level, and more.

The SLX1 Transmitter is a UHF bodypack transmitter. The transmitter is powered for up to 8 hours on 2 AA size batteries and features a 4-pin microphone input jack, which accommodates any Shure microphone featuring a TA4 connection. The SLX1 features an infrared sensor, which allows the transmitter to remotely sync frequency settings with the receiver. An adjustable mic / 0dB / -10dB switch allows input from guitars, instruments and microphones.

The WL185 Lavalier Microphone features a cardioid pick up pattern, and its 50-17,000Hz frequency response makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications.
