"Great Sound and Quality"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
High quality stereo monitor system, easy to set and delivers great sound!
I purchased this product for live music monitoring, and to allow for removal of a floor monitor ie less clutter on stage, and reducing the "devil" potential- feedback! Once you find the right pair of "seals" and install the earpieces correctly- well you will be amazed at the sound quality. Instrument and vocal quality is excellent. Again, you have to install them correctly, to get the bass and strong mid-range, but once you do they really do the job!
Everything is of high quality, well built and very sturdy. Shure also provides you the rack mount brackets and screws etc, should that be an option. If your a pro, you will find this system to your liking. There is one negative aspect I must mention- that is the Lithium Ion battery option. The unit can run on 2 AA batteries- but the batteries have a life of 5.3 hours. If your on a long gig- you better have spares! But, the problem is that the Lithium Ion battery option ONLY extends your operation to 7 hours! Since the Lithium Ion battery costs $118.00 (ouch) and the charger is $50.00+ your going to have to shell out considerable "battery dough" to get started. It will pay off in the long run- but you get the idea! This compared to the Shure GLX D wireless systems looks bad! The Lithium Ion for the wireless mic costs $39.00 AND charges in the receiver! This is probably caused by a power requirement- but a longer Lithium Ion life would certainly have been appreciated.
Ease of Use
Once you read the short manual, setup is easy- BUT do read the manual as there are some important aspects (ie balanced 1/4 plugs needed)
As mentioned earlier this is a quality built unit, and should last a long time- EXCEPT FOR THE DAMN BATTERIES!
Well worth the price I paid.
Have been dealing with Shure since the 70's- never a problem!
The Wow Factor
The removal of an additional speaker, the reduction of potential feedback, and the freedom to move without sound drop out is great.
In music since 1964, play professionally, keyboards/piano/vocals
Rock- Country- Blues- Standards- etc etc.
