• Shure announces GLX-D+ dual band wireless system

    Shure has announced its GLX-D+ dual-band wireless system, which, compared to the original GLX-D launched in 2017 and which it replaces, adds the 5.8 GHz band to the 2.4 GHz band. providing a reliable, consistent signal by automatically searching and selecting the cleanest channel on both bands, the manufacturer claims.

    GLX-D+ is available now in rack, tabletop and guitar pedal receiver options with a choice of lavalier, headworn and handheld microphones, including the SM58.

    Shure states that battery life has been improved to 12 hours (1.5 hours of use on a 15-minute charge), although, strangely, the previous system claimed 16 hours [N. of R. - it's possible they measure it differently]. In addition, the guitar pedal receiver now has a ¼" input.

    The GLX-D+ system has multiple recharging options. The new lithium-Ion SB904 battery can be charged directly on the tabletop and half-rack receivers or through a USB-C connector on the transmitter.

    The GLX-D+'s dual-band wireless system is said to offer improved RF performance, antenna distribution and automatic frequency management for up to 11 half-racksystems in typical environments (16 in optimal conditions). Separately available Frequency Manager (GLXD+FM) and directional antenna accessories are required.

    GLX-D+ desktop and rack-mount systems are currently available with three handheld wireless microphone options, including the SM58, BETA 58A and BETA 87A.

    GLX-D+ systems and components are available in various configurations. Since all GLX-D+ Dual Band Wireless systems operate in a license-free frequency range, users won’t have to worry about technical hurdles while traveling, says Shure.
