Digital operation eliminates audio artifacts and gives you full frequency response.

Coming in loud and clear

The SLXD4 single-channel receiver features simple controls with a rotary push knob and large LCD display that's easy to read even when you're outdoors. The receiver features guided frequency selection and a simple setup menu which includes a link to the system user manual so you'll have answers to any questions that might arise. The sturdy metal chassis stands up to life on the road, while XLR and 1/4" balanced outputs let you connect to a variety of amplification systems. A Network Port jack with an RJ45 receptacle connects the receiver to an Ethernet network to allow outside control. The included rack mount kit lets you mount the receiver to standard 19" equipment racks. 

Handheld and lavalier mics

The SLXD124/85 system system gives you the choice of wireless microphone or a lavalier mic with bodypack transmitter. The SLXD2/58 handheld transmitter includes the standard-setting SM58 microphone capsule for the great sound quality you expect from Shure. An OLED display makes setup simple, while the aluminum housing protects the SLXD2 from damage. 

The WL185 condenser lavalier microphone is made for speakers and presenters who need an unobtrusive hands-free mic. This mic features an cardioid polar pattern that rejects background noise and a frequency response designed for the chest-worn mic position. The SLXD1 bodypack transmitter is designed with rounded corners to make it more comfortable to wear and a sturdy polycarbonate/ABS case that holds up to hard use. Its OLED display and simple control button arrangement makes setup simple. Both transmitters offer up to 8 hours running time on two AA batteries (included) or Shure's SB903 rechargeable lithium-ion battery (sold separately). Infrared sync makes it easy to connect the transmitter and receiver.

When you need to get the most out of today's limited wireless frequency spectrum, Shure's SLX-D systems give you the tools to get the best sound you can get.

Features

Overview: The Shure SLXD124/85-H55 Digital Wireless microphone system offers streamlined performance with transparent 24-bit digital audio. It features both a compact, body-worn lavalier microphone, and an SLXD2/58 wireless hand-held microphone, that are ideal for presentations, music performances, theater, and sound reinforcement applications. Operating in the 514 - 558MHz range (H55 band), the SLXD124/85-H55 has a working range of up to 330 feet (line-of-sight).

24-Bit Digital Audio: Shure digital wireless technology allows the SLXD system to transmit detailed audio with an extended, virtually flat frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz (microphone dependent), and with up to 120dB of dynamic range. Designed to be highly RF spectrum efficient, the SLXD system can operate up to 32 compatible channels per frequency band with up to 44 MHz of tuning bandwidth (region dependent). It also allows up to 10 compatible systems in the 6MHz TV band and 12 systems in the 8MHz TV band.

Receiver

SLXD4 Receiver: The SLXD4 rack-mount wireless receiver features a Guided Frequency Setup to help you find the best open frequency for less interference. You can also manually select the Group and Channel assignments, if needed. The receiver includes a mic-level XLR output jack, as well as a 1/4" instrument-level output. The SLXD4 rear panel features two removable 1/4-wave antennas. For better reception when rack-mounting, hardware and extension cables are included to re-locate the antennas on the front of the rack-mounting brackets.

Channel Setup: A wireless audio channel is formed when the receiver and transmitter are tuned to the same frequency. To make setup easier, frequencies available to the SLXD124/85-H55 system are organized into Groups and Channels. Each Group contains a number of Channels and each Channel is assigned to a specific preset frequency. The SLXD4 receiver provides 3 methods for matching the receiver and transmitter to the same frequency:

  • Guided Frequency Setup: A step-by-step guide will walk you through the setup process. The receiver lets you initialize the system and will scan for an available channel, displaying it on the front LCD. The IR sync feature lets you place the IR port of the transmitter in front of the receiver's IR port for quick and easy channel assignment.
  • Scan & IR Sync: The receiver scans the RF spectrum for the  best available frequency and the easy IR sync procedure automatically tunes the transmitter to the receiver Group.
  • Manual Group, Channel, or Frequency Assignment: This lets you manually set the receiver and transmitter to the same Group and Channel number, or Frequency, with no scanning.

    Note: The hand-held and lavalier microphones can both be linked to the Receiver, providing a quick changeover during performances, but only one mic should be on and operating at a time to reduce interference between the transmitters.

Network: The SLXD4 receiver features a rear-panel RJ-45 port for connecting into a network via an Ethernet connection. The Receiver can be connected to a DHCP-enabled router, and when powered on, the DHCP server will automatically assign an IP address to the Receiver. This allows the use of third-party external control systems such as AMX or Crestron (both sold separately) to configure the wireless microphone system.

Hand-Held Microphone

SLXD2 Transmitter/Microphone: The SLXD2 transmitter is housed in a durable aluminum and ABS handheld chassis with integrated SM58 dynamic microphone cartridge. The SM58 is the industry-standard microphone cartridge, tailored to deliver warm, clear vocal reproduction with a cardioid polar pattern. The Transmitter/Mic can be powered by either the included 2 AA batteries, or the optional Shure SB903 rechargeable battery, which uses the Shure SBC 10-903 charger (battery and charger sold separately). Either battery type can provide up to 8 hours of operation time. The transmitter/mic features an On/Off switch, an IR Sync window, along with Menu and Enter buttons for navigating the setup options, which will be displayed on the OLED display screen. Home screen and Menu options include:

  • Home Screen: One of four Home Screen displays can be selected using the Menu and Enter buttons:
    • Channel Name (default: Shure), Group & Channel, Battery level.
    • Channel Name, Frequency, Battery level.
    • Channel Name, Battery level, Group & Channel.
    • Channel Name, Battery level.
  • High Pass: Lets you activate a built-in high-pass filter.

    • Hi: 10mW
  • Mic Offset dB: This is used to match audio levels between two transmitters used in a combo system. Range is 0 to 21dB in 3dB increments.
  • Battery Type: Allows you to select the installed AA battery type to ensure accurate battery power metering. Options include: Alkaline, NiMH (nickel metal hydride), or Lithium (non-rechargeable, 1.5V max). If an optional Shure SB903 rechargeable battery is installed, the Battery Type will automatically be selected and the menu option won't be available.
  • About: Displays firmware, hardware, and band information.

Lavalier Microphone & Transmitter

WL185 Microphone: The WL185 clothing-worn microphone is a compact, condenser microphone for hands-free speech and vocal performance applications. Its cardioid polar pattern provides excellent rejection of ambient noise. The microphone's attached 4' cable is terminated by a 4-pin TA4F connector that plugs into the SLXD1 Bodypack Transmitter. Two foam windscreens are provided to help control breath noise.

 SLXD1 Transmitter: The SLXD1 Bodypack Transmitter is housed in a durable and ergonomic plastic chassis with integrated belt-clip. It can be powered by either the included 2 AA batteries, or the optional Shure SB903 rechargeable battery, which uses the Shure SBC 10-903 charger (battery and charger sold separately). Either battery type can provide up to 8 hours of operation time. The transmitter top panel  features a 4.5" fixed antenna, a 4-pin TA4F socket for the microphone, On/Off slide-switch, and a Power LED that will light green when On and red for a low battery. One side-panel includes the IR Sync window while the other side-panel includes Menu and Enter buttons. A front-panel LCD screen can display the Home screen selection, as well as display menu options, which include:

  • Home Screen: One of four Home Screen displays can be selected using the Menu and Enter buttons:
    • Channel Name (default: Shure), Group & Channel, Battery level.
    • Channel Name, Frequency, Battery level.
    • Channel Name, Battery level, Group & Channel.
    • Channel Name, Battery level.
