|At Winter NAMM Show 2010, Anaheim, Line 6 announced the release of Relay digital wireless systems into worldwide markets. “Relay digital guitar wireless systems represent a revolution in wireless technology,” remarked Darrell Smith, Category Manager of Guitar Wireless Products at Line 6. “They were built from the ground up, for guitarists by guitarists, to provide unprecedented performance on all fronts that matter to musicians: tone, dynamics, dependability, and ease of use. Plus, they’re approved and ready to tour all over the world.”
The Relay line, which includes two stompbox-style systems and one rack-mountable system, is designed to deliver the kind of high-quality audio normally associated with expensive audio cables. The digital wireless systems provide full-range 10Hz-20kHz frequency response, exceedingly low noise with up to 120dB dynamic range (compared to the 50Hz-15kHz frequency response and >90dB dynamic range offered by comparable analog wireless systems), and studio-quality resolution with 24-bit A/D conversion.
VWT (Virtual Wire Transmission) ensures a cable-like performance, and DCL (Digital Channel Lock) technology ensures dependability by locking out all sources of interference. With all channels available all the time, complex channel co-ordination and searching are not required.
Built for worldwide use, Relay digital wireless systems broadcast in the 2.4GHz band.
Other innovations featured in each system include cable tone simulation, out-of-the-box operation, and internally mounted antennas.
Relay G30, a six channel stompbox-style system, Relay G50, the 12-channel stompbox-style system, and Relay G90, the 12-channel rack-mountable system, are shipping.
