Operates on frequency band J3
This Shure SLX2/Beta87A system operates on frequency band J3.

SLX: Clear Transmissions
The SLX sound featured with the SLX24/Beta87A is founded on Shure's patented Audio Reference Companding, a technology which brings more transmission clarity and dynamic range to wireless systems. Unlike traditional wireless companding schemes that are restricted by a fixed compression ratio, this technology utilizes a variable compression ratio. The result is the elimination of wireless artifacts during quiet passages and superior dynamic range says Shure.

SLX: Simple Setup!
On an operational level, the SLX24/Beta87A system's SLX4 receiver employs features that make setup almost effortless. Utilizing Auto Frequency Selection and Auto Transmitter Setup, the SLX system scans the wireless landscape and identifies a clear channel instantly. Then, guided by an infrared link, at the touch of a button the transmitter automatically syncs with the receiver. With over 960 operating frequencies across 24 MHz of UHF bandwidth, you should be able to quickly and easily set up up to 20 systems in a given location (area dependent).

SLX: Diversity Receiver
The SLX24/Beta87A's SLX4 is a rugged metal wireless receiver that employs diversity technology to improve reception and minimize dropouts. The SLX4 is outfitted with rack-mount hardware, detachable 1/4-wave antennas, a backlit LCD display, 1/4-inch and XLR output connectors, frequency and power lockouts, an In Line power supply, and a rear-panel volume control. Finally, the multi-function LCD displays group, channel, frequency, transmitter battery strength, and locked/unlocked status.

SLX: Handheld & Bodypack Transmitters
The SLX24/Beta87A is a supercardioid electret condenser microphone that's designed to bring exceptionally clear sound plus excellent feedback rejection onstage. It features an integrated handheld transmitter, a timed backlit LCD, frequency and power lockouts, and 300 ft. (100m) of operating range. It also operates on two AA batteries for eight hours of continuous use.

Worry-free Wireless!

We wanted you to know that all of the wireless systems you see here — and all of the wireless systems available at Sweetwater — are 100% compliant with the Federal Communication Commission's new rules governing wireless systems. You can be confident that these systems will work safely and within the permitted frequency/power ranges, just as they are. However, please be aware that by choosing to use systems that operate in the 700MHz range or by modifying a new wireless system you receive from us, you may cause your system to operate outside the FCC's new guidelines. If that's the case, you may need a license to operate the unit. To find out more, visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at or give them a call at (888) CALL-FCC.
