OVERVIEW

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.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

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"

Crappy clip

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Best sounding wireless hands down for the money and even more. Yeah it eats batteries, but the worst part of it is the clip, it's easily remedied for little money with a wireless pouch, but should've just skipped the clip and included a pouch.

It Doesn't Suck

By NuclearCade

from Gretna, Ne

See all my reviews

I had a Seinnhauser Freeport and returned it. Crackling, dropouts, etc... I bought this and at first thought my bass was mis-adjusted. The volume seemed so much better. The sound is great and no drop-out. I felt uncomfortable with the Freeport on stage, I feel totally at ease with this on stage.

Mostly Awesome!

By Uriah Duffy

from Berkeley, CA

I'm a bassist that uses all three systems for different sized shows. The sound is finally something I love in a wireless! Clear and true. The belt packs and cords feel cheap, and I've been going through them often. Crackling sounds through the PA in front of 40,000 people aint fun. But for the most part everything works great. Everyone at X2 has been helpful - Line 6 not so much. This is from what I can tell, the 3rd generation digital wireless and it keeps getting better every time. I'm hooked.Uriah Duffy, Freelance/Whitesnake

Good Product, Good Price

By Xtremca

from Iowa

See all my reviews

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.

Works Great!

By pdxbassist

from Portland, OR

I've had the XDS-PLUS for some time, and it is absolutely fantastic! Very low S/N ratio quiet on unplug/power off. I can't hear any thing but my bass! I have a Ken Smith 5 string, and the XDS-PLUS handles even the low B without problem. I added the Line 6 X2 XC3R 1/4" to 1/8" Right-Angle Locking Cable (which is much better than the standard locking cable). The XDS-Plus uses a RTS arrangement for the 1/4" output, so I also got a Live Wire 1/4" Insert Cable so I could choose the "full bandwidth" output, which is on the Ring of the RTS. Finally I added the wonderful Medium Neotech Wireless Pouch, and I don't have any problems with dropping the transmitter.The only negative is that the transmitter does go through 9V batteries, so I only use this setup on stage (and put in a fresh alkaline). I'm going tobe looking into the rechargeable lithium polymer batteries.

Great Unit

By H2H

from Tampa, FL

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.

Great, w/1 exception

By RDM-DIqyF

from Nashville

The XDS-PLUS is a fabulous sounding unit, with great features and performance. However, one MAJOR complaint: the Xmitter eats batteries even WHEN POWERED OFF. With a fresh alkaline 9v, with no power, nothing connected, sitting overnight, the xmitter is all but dead the next morning, every time.Since I usually use a fresh 9v for each show, it's not a disaster - you get about 5 hours of normal use out of an alkaline 9v. But it is inconvenient to have to pull a battery out of the unit when it's not yet drained, just to save it.Other than that, a great unit.
