Gearank High Notes


The GLXD16 shares a top spot with the BLX14 and rightly so since it incorporates the same quality and reliability but with a pedal shaped receiver.

The receiver operates in the 2.4GHz frequency band and allows for up to 8 compatible systems simultaneously.

It utilizes Shure’s LINGFREQ technology, which identifies open channels and configures the system accordingly.

Since the transmitter automatically links to the receiver, setup is quick and convenient.

It also has a nifty built-in tuner that you can engage via the foot switch.

Speaking of the transmitter, the GLXD1 bodypack is powered by Shure’s 3.7V Li-Ion Rechargeable battery, and it can run for up to 16 hours when fully charged. If you’re worried about the charge time, the company assures that 15 minutes of charging will give you roughly around 1.5 hours of operation, more than enough for the typical gig.
