The Shure PGX Digital Wireless System

Shure has introduced the first digital wireless microphone system in the Company’s history. 

The PGX Digital Wireless System is designed for users who require high sound quality, operating simplicity, and the rock-solid durability for which Shure is famous.

“PGX Digital was designed to deliver an absolutely pure representation of the sound source,” says Erik Vaveris, Category Director for Wireless Products at Shure.

“Guitarists and bassists will be amazed at how transparently the system captures the tone of their instruments and their individual playing style.  Vocalists will discover a wireless mic that accurately conveys both the subtle texture and powerful dynamics of the human voice.”

Shure PGX Digital Wireless adds the clarity and precision of 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio to the proven reliability of analog PGX wireless products. 

PGX Digital combines superior digital sound, extended battery life, and the convenience of the 900 MHz band with the user-friendly simplicity that has made PGX Analog a perennial favorite.

“Working with wireless is becoming more challenging,” says Vaveris.  “Because PGX Digital operates in the nationwide 900 MHz band, users do not have to deal with TV channel allocations that change from city to city.”

“Automatic frequency selection and one-touch sync between transmitter and receiver make setup a snap.”

Like its analog sibling, PGX Digital offers a wide range of system configurations for vocalists, guitarists, and presenters.

Handheld systems have been designed specifically to match the unique sound signatures of trusted microphone options like the cardioid SM58 and supercardioid Beta58A.

Instrument systems come with either the Beta98H/C clip-on instrument mic or the WA302 guitar cable.  Presenter systems include either the WL185 cardioid lavalier, WL93 omnidirectional lavalier, or PG30 headset.  All systems ship with the PGXD4 diversity receiver and a padded carrying case.

• 24-bit / 48 kHz digital technology for incredibly accurate sound
