  • More Line 6 Pro Audio Products Online

    Our line 6 range of digital products has grown a little more today with the arrival of their SoundSource L3 range of speakers. These are truly versatile speakers that are very powerful. Here is a video on the L3T & L3M Slave speaker below which will explain the features much better than I can.

    Check out the Soundsource L3T Speaker and the SoundSource L3M speaker for some great prices on our site. Finally in the range is the Line 6 Soundsource L3S Active subwoofer speaker which compliments the top speakers perfectly. With two subs and two tops you have a massive 5200w of power which is pretty huge.

    We have also added the amazing Soundscape M20D Digital mixer which can be used on its own with your current PA system or you can use it with the Soundsource L3 speakers for a complete Line 6 package. Again, here is a video for the M20D features

    EAV Pro Audio are proud dealers of Line 6 and love their 2.4GHz Digital Wireless Microphones. We have also added to this range with the Line 6 Relay wireless Instrument systems. The range consists of the Line 6 Relay G30 and then the Relay G50 and finally the rack mounted Relay G90 Wireless systems.

  • A Day with Line 6 - Digital Wireless Mics, Mixer and Speakers

    At the end of last week we had the pleasure of meeting two members of the UK Line 6 team as they came to visit us at our offices. We opened up an account with Line 6 only two months back and have already hit the ground running with their wireless microphone systems despite not really getting to use the products first. We at EAV pride ourselves on our product knowledge and always like to try as many products out before we sell them as possible. This meeting was our chance to see, hear and touch not only the Line 6 Wireless Microphones but also their range of PA speakers and the rather amazing Digital Mixer.

    After pleasantries, business talk and coffee we went down to our rather cold warehouse and set up the XD-V75 Wireless Microphone system along with its smaller siblings, the XD-V55 and the XD-V35. It was the V75 I was interested in as this is the system we are really promoting to our customers due to the professional features. One worry people have with these 2.4GHz systems is that it runs on the same frequencies as WIFI and everyone now has or lives close to people using WIFI. Line 6 had assured me they understand that WIFI is everywhere and that the systems are designed to run alongside it, but naturally I wanted to prove this myself. We did a scan (using the handy scanning feature in the V75 receiver) and found that WIFI was present on 6 of the 12 channels in the receiver. I tuned the V75 handheld microphone in to a channel that clearly had WIFI on it and of we went through our offices up the stairs and into another room and the unit didn’t drop out or have interference of any kind once. We decided after that we wanted to check how far we could go before dropout and what obstacles would cause it. We managed to get 60 yards outside the building with a metal shutter and 5 cars between the mic and receiver before we had drop out. The Line 6 chaps assured us that this would be much further if we had clear line of site between the mic and receiver and didn’t have a metal shutter and 5 cars in the way which lets be honest, most venues don’t have inside. We then went through the different modellings on the microphones which includes EV ND767, Sennheiser e835, e935, Shure SM58, Beta 58 and more and they sounded pretty spot on to me.

    V75 Lapel All in all, this demo reinforced my feelings that these Line 6 2.4GHz Digital Wireless Microphones are fantastic product and I can now recommend them with complete confidence. The added bonus of it being Licence free in the UK and worldwide can’t help either :)

    A couple more coffees later we set up the Line 6 L3T and L3M speakers and pumped some tunes through along with a little acoustic guitar from yours truly and I must admit they had a great sound. Great bass and very nice clarity in the highs and mids. They are a little on the pricey side but if you look at the specs and features on our website you will see that they are worth the money. Basically, due to the in-built Line 6 Modelling, you tell the speaker whether it is a front of house speaker, monitor wedge, onstage guitar amp, keyboard amp, acoustic amp to name but a few. It really is the most versatile speaker I’ve seen in a long time. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see or hear the subs in this range but I imagine they are similar in quality to the tops. Each sub is rated at 1200w and the tops at 1400w each which means a four box system would pack 5200w. This is pretty huge and will fill some quite sizable venues.

    Finally we got to look and play with the Line 6 Stagescape M20D Digital mixer and all my Christmases came at once. This little beauty is a compact 12 mic input mixer (with more balanced Jack inputs) that is designed with absolute ease of use in mind. To me I felt it was designed for the gigging musicians rather than sound engineers. Everything was so easy and clear that you really could jump on this out of the box. It redesigns mixing, recording live (multi-track), and sound checking with its user friendly and unique interface however, if you want your familiar displays, you can get that also. To be honest, your best bet is to watch the Line 6 videos on this to really get what I mean. My only criticism about this desk is that there should be a 20 channel version also for larger bands and events however, if you can get away with the 12 mic inputs, four additional line input, extra stereo line inputs and two digital streaming inputs then this is a stunning bit of kit. Currently there are no plans for a bigger model . Finally, with a USB WIFI adaptor (not supplied) you can control your mix from an iPad. This allows you to put your desk wherever you wish and move around the venue and have complete control with your iPad.

    It was great morning of viewing and trying products and we can safely say that EAV Pro Audio are now proud to be Line 6 dealers in the UK. To see our full range of Line 6 products visit our Line 6 page here.

  • Audio Technica 2000a Racked Wireless System - Channel 38 and Ready

    Audio Technica have finally joined in the fight of the ‘Racked & Ready Wireless Microphone Battle’. Their new Audio Technica 2000a Racked-Up 4-Way Wireless Mic System inc Bag is the latest addition to our website and our Racked up radio mic page.

    This Audio Technica 2000a Racked-Up 4-Way Wireless Mic System inc Bag is made by Audio Technica in their UK offices and shipped completely racked and ready to go. The package consists of four complete 2000a series radio mics, an antennae distribution amp all racked up in a 4U UK made flight case. The system also comes with a bag for carrying your transmitter microphones in.

    2000a Racked There are three options to consider when buying this 2000a rack. The first is the 2410aP rack which comes with two lapel systems and two handheld systems. The second is the 2420a system which comes with all handheld systems and finally the 2421aP which comes with all lapel systems. We have also added an option for a remote antennae kit which consists of a pair of paddle antennaes, two 8m antennae cables and a pair of mic stands. The paddle antennae offer a better range for RF pick-up and with the cables you can install these antennae to a wall or on the supplied mic stands. This makes a perfect option for installations in Churches or Schools. This system is currently only available to buy in the shared band of channel 38 which requires a licence to use legally.

    Currently this is Audio Technica’s first foray in to the racked up wireless microphone world however, EAV have been and will continue to build Audio Technica racks for quite some time now. We even have a 2000a series rack that we build in-house and although it doesn’t come with the bag, you can add a 2U shallow rack draw which is lockable. You also have complete control over the different variations of transmitter microphones. You also can choose different frequency bands of operation and the paddle antennae are included. It comes in the exact same professional wooden flightcase and is delivered built, tested and labelled (if required). This option is also available in the Audio Technica 3000 series wireless microphones.

    EAV have been leading the field with racked wireless microphones and offer solutions from Sennheiser, Shure, Audio Technica, Trantec, and recently added the 2.4GHz Line 6 Digital Wireless Microphones to our racked systems and they have become extremely popular as they are licence free worldwide. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about wireless systems or racked and ready wireless microphones and we will be happy to help and advise.
