Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

Hello all

Ive decided to purchase my first Wireless system and I cant decide between the Line 6 Digital XDV-70 or the trusty Shure SLX system with either a Beta58 or SM58...

http://www.ryansloan.net/2010/09/04/lin … v70-xdv30/

and

http://www.laaudiofile.com/shureslx.html

The Line 6 seems appealing because it can apparantly "replicate" many different mic's including the Shure models, Senny's etc etc.... and its digital...I know and trust Shure mic's as thats what ive used for many years (just a standard 58)..

Anyone had any experiance with the Line 6 Wireless? Or any advise from experianced users on which one I would be better off getting? The Line 6 is about $200 cheaper.

Im in Australia, and willing to spend around the $800 dollar mark for a really top quality mic (thats about $850 U.S)

Cheers!

Re: Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

Jimmy,

Just a suggestion : Check out the Samson Airline 77 system >>
http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i- … AVSHX-LIST

The "system" gives you the opportunity to use ALL of your favorite dymanic mics that you already own.
It's very easy to change your mics "on the fly" !!!

Additionally, I haven't seen a single negative review, and at $269.00 you can't beat the price....

Regards,
Adolph

Re: Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

Thanks Adolph, yes I saw Roberts post about these as well and thought that could work....also, since my post yesterday ive alsoi read about the Heil PR35 and im thinking about getting one of those and ALSO getting the Samson system....which will turn it into a Wireless mic in effect...

coupled with:

This would "supposedly" give me the best of both worlds?

Oh, Yes Jimmy..... A great choice for sure !!!

Here's my "Dream" >>> The Samson Airline 77 coupled with the Neumann KMS105

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Neumann-KMS … 1126902.gc

http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/pr … sku=271409

I checked out the Neumann a few months ago, and it's ever sooooooooo SWEET !!!! :cool:
But @ $700.00, unfortunately it's going to be awhile..........

Re: Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

I've not liked any of the SLX I've worked with.  I have no reason to thing that the Samson is even as good.  To put a Neumann capsule on any low end wireless would be money wasted (plus, the Neuman, like most superior sounding mic capsules, picks up way to much unwanted sound to be of use in most situations).

Re: Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

I just picked up the Line 6 XD-V70 and it works flawlessly.  Really happy with it.  Also just ordered the Heil RC35 capsule, which is Heil's wireless capsule equivalent of the PR35.  I'll be sure to post once I've had an opportunity to check it out.

Re: Line 6 Digital Wireless vs Shure SLX Wireless

Based on new experience since my last post, if I could not afford a Sennheiser with a 935 capsule, I'd go with the Line6 - it's pretty good.

I haven't had a chance to put it through a professional grade board yet, but WOW does this mic sound great through our rehearsal PA.  Many thanks to this forum for turning me on to Heil microphones.

Been using this Heil / Line 6 combo for about seven months now and can't recommend it highly enough. The wireless performance has been flawless and the Heil capsule gives my vocals a real warm and complex tone without any loss of clarity or crispness.  Received a number of positive comments from house sound guys.
