Easy start up
It's simple to set up the system's transmitters and the receiver. Press the Group button on the receiver and it automatically scans for the clearest group and channel. Then just set the transmitter to the same group and channel settings and you're ready to go. You can also set the Group and Channel manually, plus you can run up to 12 systems simultaneously depending on channel availability and RF environment.

The CVL clip-on microphone offers unobtrusive miking for spoken-word applications; the BLX1 bodypack transmitter sends the lavalier's headset signal to the receiver. The BLX2/PG58 handheld microphone/transmitter gives you Shure's PG-58 microphone capsule for increased fidelity. You'll get all the benefits of Shure wireless technology and the adaptability you need for a wide variety of uses.

More details on the Shure BLX 1288/CVL-H9
Overview: The Shure BLX1288/CVL-H9 Dual Channel Wireless Microphone System consists of a BLX88 Dual Channel Wireless Receiver, a PG58 Handheld Microphone with built-in BLX2 transmitter, along with a CVL lavalier microphone and a BLX1 bodypack transmitter. The microphone system allows you to operate up to 12 compatible systems per frequency band (depending upon your region). The system operates on the H9 frequency band (512 to 542 MHz), and has a transmitting range of approximately 300 feet. The BLX1288/CVL-H9 microphone system is designed for conferences, presentations, and lectures.
BLX88: The BLX88 Dual Wireless Receiver features one-touch QuickScan frequency selection to help you find the best open frequency for less interference. You can also manually change the group and channel assignments, if needed. It has dual XLR mic outputs, as well as dual 1/4" instrument-level output jacks. The BLX88 is simple to set up, and has a microprocessor-controlled internal diversity antenna system. Each channel has two LED indicators. The audio LED indicates the strength of the incoming signal, and glows green for normal and red for overload. The ready LED indicates the system is ready for use and receiving the transmitter signal. It is powered by the supplied 12-volt DC power supply.
PG58/BLX2 Wireless Handheld Mic: The PG58 is a rugged, dynamic handheld microphone for live performances, conferences, and professional sound reinforcement applications. The PG58 has a cardioid polar pattern, and provides robust sound with emphasized bass, and maximum isolation from other sources. It is designed for close-up vocals (6" or less from mouth), and can be handheld or mounted on a stand (using the supplied adjustable stand adapter). The PG58 can withstand rough handling, featuring a hardened steel mesh grille, and an internal shock mount for reduced handling noise. The microphone's built-in BLX2 transmitter is powered by 2 "AA" alkaline batteries (included), which can provide approximately 14 hours of use. An LED indicator will turn red to signify a low battery with approximately 60 minutes of battery life remaining. Optional rechargeable batteries can also be used. The BLX2 has independent group and channel buttons for easy setup. The BLX2 comes with a black identification cap. Optional color ID caps are available from the manufacturer.
CVL Microphone: The BLX1288/CVL-H9 system includes a CVL lavalier microphone. This discreet tie- or lapel-worn condenser mic features a cardioid polar pattern, with excellent off-axis rejection for higher gain-before-feedback when used with a stage monitor, and a tailored frequency response of 60Hz - 12kHz. Included with the CVL mic are two windscreens, a lapel-clip, and an attached 52" cord with locking TQG connector for a solid attachment to the transmitter pack.
BLX1 Transmitters: The included BLX1 bodypack transmitter features an easy-access On/Off switch and LED power indicator on its top section. A fold-down cover allows access to the Group and Channel selection buttons, along with a 2-character LCD display and a Gain adjustment dial. This section also holds the 2 included AA batteries, providing up to 14 hours of use. Each transmitter has a convenient clip for attaching to a belt or pocket.
