A Shure UHF-R system provides 2,400 selectable frequencies across a 60MHz bandwidth, with up to 40 compatible systems per band. Shure's Advance Track Tuning shifts the RF filter along with the selected frequency, maximizing signal isolation from interference. The UHF-R system also features networked automatic setup to minimize time and effort, plus infrared transmitter sync. Integrated Wireless Workbench software with Ethernet and USB compatibility gives you advanced, real-time control and monitoring of large systems.

The best sound quality from Shure's famous Audio Reference Companding
Of course, it's the sound that counts in a wireless system, and the UHF-R systems deliver premium-quality audio utilizing Audio Reference Companding. This technology applies a variable companding ratio rather than a fixed ratio to eliminate "breathing" and other wireless artifacts. Audio Reference Companding also increases dynamic range to provide a signal that's clear and clean.

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.
