Full-frequency, Uncompressed, 24-bit Audio
Every performer knows that when you sound your best, you perform with confidence. The unique versatility and reliability of XD-V55 systems ensure a great performance every time you hit the stage.
Featuring 24-bit precision for a full frequency response of 10Hz to 20kHz and a wide dynamic range of up to >117dB (A weighted), XD-V55 digital wireless signals are so clear and strong that they sound and perform as if you’re using a wired microphone.
Unlike analog wireless systems, XD-V55 digital wireless systems never use signal companding to compress and expand the signal, so you always have full dynamic range. XD-V wireless systems allow you to convey every nuance of your performance to the audience in the most natural way, with crystal clarity. In addition to preventing unintentional handling noise, the adjustable dynamic filter reduces unwanted ambient noise, while preserving your natural vocal articulation.
In the audio world, "compander" is a dirty word. Companders compress and expand wireless signals, which ultimately compromises clarity and makes the voice sound flat and dull. Line 6 digital wireless systems always feature compander-free designs so our sound quality is rich, full and natural.
Advanced Audio Protection
Line 6 digital wireless systems use exclusive digital technologies to protect their signals from interference that can wreak havoc on analog wireless systems. Encoded DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) technology distinguishes XD-V55 digital audio from any other third-party signal, including Wi-Fi. This prevents audio interference from other 2.4GHz devices and ensures the highest signal integrity.
2.4GHz Broadcast - License-free, Worldwide
You may have noticed that some wireless microphones come with FCC warning labels. Line 6 digital wireless systems, including XD-V55, don’t need "FCC Consumer Alert" stickers because they're fully FCC compliant. XD-V digital wireless operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band, which avoids interference from TV broadcasts, white space devices, cell phone towers and other transmitting devices. XD-V55 systems ensure peace of mind and the most reliable operation worldwide, from Hollywood to Tokyo.
Worried about interference caused by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® devices that operate in the 2.4GHz ISM band? XD-V55 digital wireless systems use uniquely addressed and encoded digital transmission technology, so your signal will travel from transmitter to receiver free of interference.
4th-generation Digital Wireless Technology
Since its debut, Line 6 digital wireless technology has racked up awards and proven that analog wireless technology is no longer the only option. Now in its fourth generation, Line 6 digital wireless technology is the most mature in the market and continues to set standards in simplicity and performance.
Like all Line 6 digital wireless systems, XD-V55 systems are incredibly easy to set up. Simply pick any of the 12 always-available channels and the transmitter and receiver lock together - job done.
Consistent Signal Integrity up to 300 Feet
At ten feet away or at the full extent its range, XD-V digital wireless systems deliver the same, consistent, dependable signal quality. Unlike analog wireless systems, there’s no increased risk of interference or degradation in signal as you move further from the receiver. You can perform with full confidence, right up to the range limits of your XD-V system.
Mix, Match and Use up to 12 Simultaneous Systems
Ideal for solo performers through full bands with multiple vocalists, XD-V55 systems allow for up to twelve XD-V55 systems to be used simultaneously. Simply set each system to a different channel and you’re ready to go, free of cross-channel interference between performers.
Designed for applications where you need to interchange different types of mics, the XDV-55 family supports handhelds, lavaliers, headsets and instruments within the same digital wireless system. Because both models in the XD-V55 family have the same digital wireless receiver, mixing and matching is now a one-step setup process.
