Line 6 has introduced the V75-40V, a new wireless microphone that combines the company’s digital wireless technology with the Earthworks WL40V hypercardioid mic capsule.
The premium hand-tuned and tested capsule from Earthworks provides exceptionally fast impulse response, high SPL handling and a wide frequency range. A textbook hypercardioid polar pattern helps convey exceptional detail and nuance.
“We’re pleased to partner with Earthworks, an industry leader in high-definition microphones,” says Max Gutnik, vice president of products, Line 6. “Together we’ve created a digital wireless microphone that delivers performance previously found only in the highest quality wired studio microphones.”
The Line 6 XD-V system is the only wireless platform that can transmit the exceptional frequency range of the WL40V capsule. It provides 24-bit precision for a full frequency response, exceptional dynamic range and no compression or expansion.
“Line 6’s expertise and experience in digital wireless coupled with Earthworks’ precision microphone technology—stemming from our measurement background—lends itself to a superior product for the live sound and worship markets,” states Heidi Robichaud, president/CEO, Earthworks.
The V75-40V is a durable microphone. The rugged metal body is designed to withstand the rigors of live performance, and a custom hard-shell touring case with soft inner padding protects it between gigs.
“Our engineering team worked tirelessly to make a product that sounds as scientifically perfect as is possible,” says Daniel Blackmer, director of engineering, Earthworks.
The V75-40V is expected to be available in October 2013.
