Line 6 has announced the new Relay V75-SC 14-channel digital wireless handheld microphone/transmitter with super-cardioid dynamic capsule. They tell us that, designed for use with the XD-V75 digital wireless system, Relay V75-SC isolates vocals while rejecting stage noise, resulting in supreme vocal clarity and articulation.
V75-SC is the first Line 6 vocal wireless solution to be released under the Relay brand. XD-V75, XD-V55 and XD-V35 vocal wireless systems will also join G-series instrument wireless solutions as part of the Relay family, giving, says Line 6, musicians a single source for the best-sounding, most reliable wireless in the industry.
Max Gutnik, Vice President of Products, Line 6, told us, "Discerning vocalists require a microphone that delivers pristine sound quality, even on loud or crowded stages. Relay V75-SC features a super-cardioid polar pattern that delivers excellent on-axis response while preventing feedback and bleed-in from other instruments--giving vocalists the confidence they need to deliver their best performances."
Line 6 says that, featuring 24-bit audio quality, 10Hz to 20kHz frequency response and a wide dynamic range of up to 118dB (A weighted), the Relay V75-SC signal is so clear and strong that it sounds and performs like a wired microphone. They tell us that, thanks to compander-free Line 6 digital wireless technology, Relay V75-SC allows vocalists to convey every nuance of their performances to the audience with crystal clarity.
A spokesperson told us, "Relay V75-SC also offers four exceptional microphone models--including three based on the world's most celebrated super-cardioid live mics--allowing vocalists to choose the perfect sound to match their voice, performance style and venue. Relay V75-SC is a durable, dependable microphone transmitter designed to provide reliable performance night after night. The rugged metal body is engineered to withstand the elements and minimize handling noise. A custom hard-shell touring case with soft inner padding protects Relay V75-SC while traveling."
