Brilliant uncompressed tone.
The X2 XDS-PLUS is a rugged, digital instrument wireless system sporting many features of the XDR Series. It's packed into a rugged metal chassis receiver. Thanks to its digital technology you get an extended frequency response and operating range.
Providing guitarists with total freedom, superior tone and refreshing simplicity, X2 XDS-Plus, allows a completely uninhibited musical experience. Performers can keep their energy and attention on their performance, not on their rig.
Boasting extended frequency response and dynamic range, X2 XDS-Plus produces brilliant sound quality comparable to that of high-quality audio cables. Instead of tripping over dozens of feet of tangled cable, performers will fall for X2 XDS-Plus's clear and powerful tone.
Featuring an extended range of 200 feet, the length of a hockey rink, X2 XDS-Plus provides at maximum range the same blazing signal and brilliant, uncompressed tone that it provides at the source. Analog wireless systems, notorious for rolling off low end, force players, especially bass players, to sacrifice tone for wireless functionality. With X2 XDS-Plus, players can easily interact with the crowd at the foot of the stage without any loss in sound quality.
Extremely versatile, X2 XDS-Plus even simplifies the recording process. The extended frequency response, 10 Hz “ 20 kHz, satisfies the expectations guitarists have come to demand from high-quality cable, but without the tangled mess. With their rigs cranked to 11 in the iso-booth, guitarists can play near the band and keep the all-important vibe and that ensures a great take.
Eradicating common issues that adversely affect traditional analog wireless systems, X2 XDS-Plus utilizes exclusive Line 6 dual-RF technology to guarantee a strong and constant signal and to neutralize issues of static, interference and jamming caused by cell phones, wireless networks and other unforeseen or unknown sources of RF energy.
Made in the USA, the X2 XDS-PLUS wireless system features X2's companderless technology, and dual digital transmission, for the sound and feel of a direct wire connection. It also has an incredible level of interference protection only available from X2. This wireless system contains an XDT4 digital UHF bodypack transmitter, an XDR2 digital UHF receiver, an instrument cable and 9V DC power supply. Users guide and all necessary batteries included.

Finally someone has put out a wireless that does not change the sound!! Thru the years of playing, Ive only actually owned 1 wireless. Back in the 90's I had a Samson wireless and it really wasnt bad. It did however change the sound by adding more treble to the mix. All I had to do was EQ it out and it was usable. About a year ago I started looking again for another wireless and this is what I found. Samson, just flat out sounded like crap, Nady sounded good but was built very cheap. Shure sounds good if you pay $400+. Sennheiser about the same as Shure and AKG seemed to brighten the sound. PLUS, it seems like all brands put cheap cables in the box and then try to sell you a better one for another $45. With the X2 XDS+ I found none of the problems others wireless seem to have. Mine does exactly what it is advertised to do. Not change the sound a bit. My cable from tx to to guitar seems to be high quality cord. Did I get lucky?? Dont know but I expect no problems out of this cable in the near or distant future. I read where someone had trouble with their battery running down overnight when the battery was left in the transmitter. I purposely tested my unit for this (because Im lazy) and mine was fine the next day. Im thinking that maybe the cable has to be unplugged from the transmitter. I did that and mine was fine. Most everyone doesnt like the battery cover. It is kinda cheap feeling but I think if you dont get in a hurry you should have no problems. Mine opens fine....slide forward and then lift. The belt clip makes no difference to me anyway cause I always the the transmitter in my back pocket or pouch. Granted these are my opinions, and we all know what they say about "opinions"

The sound of this unit is pristine, but the build quality and signal strength are crap! When Line 6 acquired X2 they should have done quality testing before they slapped their name on the box. Shame on you Line 6 for taking the easy road out!

I have used my X2 wireless for all my gigs this past year and it has worked great. I have played all over the US and this unit has never failed me. I have played at gigs high up in the mountains of Montana to South Florida and have not had any issues with my signal. The tone is just as you would have with a cable.
i bought this yesterday at guitar center. i used it at practice. it kills your tone a lil bit but thas nothing a lil gain can't fix. overall great stuff.
This is my first wireless system. I've been on the fence about getting one for a while because the Shure system my bass player uses always gives him problems when he tries to set it up live..also kind of kills his tone a bit but i don't really have as much of a problem with that as the guitarist =). But I'm finding wires to be annoying on larger stages lately so I finally bought this unit after reading all the good reviews. It was very easy to set up and worked perfectly right out of the box. To my ear the tone was indistinguishable from when I'm using a wire. Even my 7 string came through clear as a bell. My only problems were that it was picking up noise from my TV when I tried it out in my house and the components do seem like they're pretty fragile. I wish it came with some sort of carrying case too. I'm really looking forward to using it live...I'll still have a wire as a back up though.
i love this product. worked perfect the first time i used it, actually i let the praise team leader use it at church. he came in from outside the theater playing it. my church is a revamped movie theater.Go Firehouse Ministries. but after that it kept trying to go into the other reciever mode, not the one it came with. had to turn it off,turn it on, turn it off turn it on , hold the over button turn it off turn it on, finnally it would sinc up, sometimes it didnt. but when it sincs up, it's blows shure wireless away. it hasnt give me trouble for a while now. i love it
Latency was apparent even at close range. Cut out often at 25-30 feet. Could not use. Bought it and returned it.
Been using the xds plus for about 6 months now and i love it. No change in tone what-so-ever!! I've played many different venues using this and I have never had a problem with interference or drop outs. Battery life isn't bad, get yourself some 9v NIMH rechargeable batteries and they will last about 4 hours. No complaints at all.
I've used it on both bass & electric guitar. Love the 5 channel selector capability! Sound is very clean. Reciever signal & battery strength are a great feature. Transmitter has a cheap clip. Ended up duct taping it to the body pack. Battery compartent door seems as if it'll break easily. I put in a new 9V alkaline bettery each time. It barely makes it through a 4 hour show. I even turn it off during breaks. Watch the battery indicator on the reciever closely & always keep a cord handy !!! I'm very happy with the reciever but the tranxmitter needs to be upgraded.
This product is not bad. For the price it's hard to beat. My only complaints on it are the stock cable that does come with it is junk. My unit has about 3 hours worth of total use on it and the cable has to be jockeyed with otherwise it cuts in and out. I wish the transmitter used a STD guitar jack on it so you didn't have to use an adapter. The transmitter is OK, but the feel of it is similar to that of my garage door opener. When I change the battery it feels like I am going to bust the door off the back. Overall it does a great job, but you will probably have to find a new cable for it.
I had doubts about a wireless system being as clear as a direct cable, but I was wrong. This rig is as clear as my monster cable and just as simple to use. The previous wireless rig I bought was on a Saturday and took back Sunday. Drop outs and distortions so I tried this. No drop outs and my 5 string bass sounds as good as my direct cable hook up. I am very pleased with this rig , and even more pleased with the price. More expensive dosen't always mean better.
Not much more I can add to any other reviews you will see for this Product. It just works, plug it in and go. No added noise, no change in tone when you A/B a cable to the wireless system, no drop outs, no compression. For the price, it's got to be unbeatable.The battery life is a small issue, but lasts as advertised for 4-5 hours. Rechargable batters are not an option. I tried and they drained in less than 5 minutes. But that has more to due with rechargable 9V batteries. Overall, couldn't be happier with this product and the quality.
