New Guitar Wireless System But Not In North America
Line 6 Relay G30 Digital Wireless System should be available in August 15/07/09
We ran a story on it from the Frankfurt Messe back in April and now Line 6 has given out more details on the new Relay G30 Digital Wireless System for guitars, the debut system from its forthcoming brand of digital wireless systems for guitar and bass.
Here's the press release that they have sent us...
The concept of wireless is extremely attractive, but in the past, the reality has been a series of compromises: altered tone, increased noise and problems with interference. As a result, many musicians resist wireless. What if all of those problems just disappeared? What if wireless rivalled the performance of a cable â€“ without the wires? The new Relay G30 redefines the wireless experience, delivering superior sound, professional dependability and total simplicity.
Relay G30 delivers exceptional sound with its high-end sparkle and low-end punch exposing the sonic limitations of traditional analogue wireless systems. Free of any frequency roll-off, Relay G30 boasts a broad frequency response of 10Hz â€“ 20kHz, and a dynamic range of 118 dB, at ranges of up to 30 metres, which is ideal for gigs, or simply for jamming with friends.
Built to a professional standard, Relay G30 offers unequalled dependability. It avoids many kinds of signal interference by broadcasting over the 2.4GHz band, plus it employs exclusive signal protection technology for an additional layer of defence. Traditional wireless systems broadcast over congested UHF bands, and their signals may be forced to compete with interference generated by devices as far away as 160 kilometres, or more.
Lightweight, low-profile and easy to use, Relay G30 delivers a simple but sophisticated experience. The system features 1/4-inch inputs and outputs, sets of bright LEDs that display power, status and battery life, and includes everything the user needs to get started.
"Relay G30 is the professional solution that wireless guitarists have been waiting for," remarks Don Boomer, Line 6 product line manager. "Relay products have the ability to match the frequency response of a typical guitar cable and provide superior dynamic range compared to most analogue wireless systems--all while providing wireless freedom to musicians."
Relay G30 is approved for use in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia Pricing and Availability:
Relay G30 is expected to ship in August with a UK MSRP of Â£286.35 inc. VAT.
