Turned on the receiver then the transmitter and the battery had a 12 hour remaining charge on it.
Grabbed a mic and a harp, put some blues on and started to wail through my Monoprice 15 watt amp.
Awesome! Absolutely no latency. Walked through the house in and out of rooms without a skip or drop.
Downloaded the Updater and checked the firmware and both receiver and transmitter had the newest updates.
Went to the jam session and LOVED not being wired to the amp.
In fact, during one slow blues number I did my solo sitting on the bar between patrons. They loved it.
Battery life is excellent.
Started with 11 hours remaining and ended with 9 hours remaining when we finished 3 hours later.
Batteries can be charged through the main receiver or USB through the transmitter.
Some players had Shure wireless units like this one, some Boss wireless and a Line 6 wireless.
All together 6 different wireless units were on at the same time and I had no interference nor did I cause interference to anybody else.
This IS the wireless for gigs and jams.
Very highly recommended.
Keep on Harpin'
The GLXD14R-Z2 transmitter/receiver pair operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency spectrum, which is un-licensed and thus available for various digital communications devices (including Wi-Fi), not just wireless microphones and instruments. However, since the signals are digitally encoded, it should be possible to operate the GLXD14R in an environment with competing devices that use the same frequency range even though Shure (and others) recommend avoiding cell phones and Wi-Fi devices in near proximity to the receiver/transmitter. To accommodate the possibility of other competing signals, the GLXD14 offers 4 ‘group’ settings, each of which has multiple backup channels (except group 3). This configuration allows a typical complement of four receivers operating simultaneously in the same venue. The specifications claim that up to 11 channels can used but that is under optimal conditions. If more than four channels are required, I would personally recommend a different topology.
I purchased the Shure GLXD14R-Z2 to replace an aging Sennheiser EW 100 G2 (which technically should not be used anymore due to FCC frequency reassignments). When I purchased the Sennheiser many years ago, it was the result of an exhaustive search and some frazzled salesmen; I rejected LOTS of other equipment, including some lesser Shure models. My expectations for the Shure GLX-D line were therefore very high.
The only potential drawback to this technology (other than possible interference) is that the signals are digitized. Having used the EW 100 G2, which is an analog system, I was very concerned about distortion due to companding and processing latency. However, so far I have not experienced any challenges except when testing the system at a distance of about 100 feet where I noticed some occasional aliasing, which was likely from audio reflections, not from the system itself. Since I do not expect to perform on stages wider than 50 feet (without complete professional sound support) this is completely acceptable. Additionally, at 100 feet the sound delay is about 90 milliseconds, a bit too much for my liking if I am trying to keep time with the drummer!
The other concern was dropouts. This is an absolute no-no in a performance situation. As I alluded to previously, I rejected a lot of competing wireless systems. This was primarily because of dropouts and unexpected shifts in volume. I walked a large indoor facility prior to a show (~ 120’ x 100’) to assess the performance of the GLXD14 and was pleased with the consistent levels of the system; there were no dropouts at any time or anywhere in the venue. Of course, I will re-assess this when I play outdoors later this summer and start wandering the crowd.
The transmitter has a metal shell with a very nice metal door to hold the battery in place. The receiver is rack mounted so there no real concern for it but if you choose not to rack mount, be advised that it is not nearly as durable as the transmitter. The cable supplied with the system does not have a lot of strain relief so this is a small ding on the system as provided; as such, I already purchased a spare. Since this system will be used on the road, durability is paramount.
Since the transmitter has LI rechargeable batteries, I did a fun little calculation. If eight AA cells cost ~$10 and if I conservatively used eight per-month in my old Sennheiser transmitter, then I will be saving about $600 in batteries over 5 years. Hmm, that alone just about makes it worth the investment!
I have not had the GLXD14 long enough to truly assess its performance in various situations, it has done the job well enough that would consider purchasing a second (non-rack mount) system for home use and smaller gigs (even though I'm still a Sennheiser fan).
In my case, I am using it in a small church, and this GLXD14 is dedicated for my pastor to preach. He doesn't sing and he doesn't act. All we look for is reliability. In my case, it is a 5 stars!
Originally, when the room/sanctuary is empty, my 3 years old Shure ULX works well. It works very well, indeed. However, when the room is full of people, my ULX starts to cut in and out for 1/2 of a sec and come back from time to time. That would happen randomly. Sometimes, twice in the 40 mins long sermon, Sometimes, 10+ times. Now, shall I move the receiver closer to the stage? Get a Shure 'shark fin' antenna? End up, I decide to give 'digital' a try.
So far, 3 weeks after I start using this Shure GLXD14, no cutting in and out, PERIOD. On top of this, the battery lasts 5 times longer than my faithful Duracell 9V on my Shure ULX bodypack. We have 3 services in a roll and I never need to bug my pastor and change battery.
As of late I always have a guitar at arms length, hanging a transmitter on one turns it into a battery disposal unit. Hence, I would never even consider using a wireless sys around the house. Until now..
For large stage setups the rack mountable receiver (antennas in the rear wth extension cables) comes wth mounting hardware & cleanly fits into a multi receiver rack setup. Sure also offers a nice selection of options & extenders.
