Now playing

The Shure GLXD24/BETA87A is a member of Shure's GLX-D family of digital wireless systems, designed to set you free onstage. It includes the GLXD2/BETA87A microphone/transmitter and the GLXD4 wireless receiver.

Coming attractions

The system offers up to 16 hours of operation on the transmitter's rechargable lithium-ion battery. The typical indoor range is up to 100 feet, with a maximum of 200 feet under ideal conditions; its outdoor range is up to 65 feet, 165 feet under ideal conditions.

The GLXD24/BETA87A 's transmitter automatically links to the receiver for seamless operation. LinkFreq Automatic Frequency Management makes it simple – just turn on your receiver and transmitter, and they'll automatically pair up on the best available frequency. If you encounter unexpected interference, the system instantly switches to the next best open frequency, with no interruption.

You can run up to 8 systems on a single stage in ideal conditions, up to 4 systems in most situations. The GLX-D  transmitters use rechargable lithium-ion batteries, and the GLXD4 receiver features an onboard battery charging port that allows you to charge a spare battery while the system is in use. And there's no more guessing if you'll make it through a show – the GLXD4's display gives you a real time countdown on how much battery life is left in your transmitter.
