The Line 6 digital wireless systems are exceptional with their quality, range, and ability to fight interference. More importantly they are 100% legal, operating way above and beyond traditional wireless system frequency range. The XDV30 is by far one of my favorite wireless systems for not only the price but for the quality. As a wedding DJ I am used to speakers holding a microphone like it was a snake (3+ feet away from their mouth). The line 6 XDV30 sounds crystal clear and picks up like a champ without any feedback problems to report. For live sound situations this microphone sounds great for vocalists and is an all-around choice for good quality vocals. There are certainly more expensive options out there, but the XDV30 has an amazing sound quality, range, and overall functionality for almost any live sound situation. This microphone would also be ideal for a church looking for a high quality wireless system on a budget.
I purchased this mike to see how it did with the new breed of TC-Helicon Voicetone products. I have been using the AE-6100 since trying out and or purchasing every popular handheld Sweetwater offers. I was totally blown away buy the beautiful full sound and fantastic way it works with the C1 and D1 Voicetone pedals. I have not been able to put it down. Feedback which also was a mild problem at times is non-existent using this mike with the pedals. With or without TC-Helicon's vocal products this is one great mike at any price let alone the super low price I paid. Buy this you will be happy you did.
Happy Shopping Mall
We purchased the Line 6 XD-V30 (Handheld System) to use in the common area of our shopping mall for stage events. The intent was for this to be more of an announcer/master of ceremonies mic, but the first live music we had on stage the performers were asking to us our mic! Excellent sound for the price!
Needs better channel flexibility and a rack receiver system
The compliments my review of the G30 guitar system: read that for my channel flexibility comment. Basically, the V70 (and G50/90) have 12 channels that duplicate the 6 channels that the G30 / V30 use. So if you are going to go 100% wireless, you must spring for the 12 channel units even if you don't need the range or the modeling mic! Oh, well.
The wireless mic systems from Line 6 really needs a 6 and 12 channel receiver chassis rather than stack a bunch of individual receivers, either up to 12 wall warts, etc. A smallish rack system for these would go a long way to minimizing clutter for a band with a wireless mic set up: racked right next to the mixer console or snake
Best Wireless at this Price
I bought this for speeches at weddings, corporate events and the like. Occasionally it gets used for actual singing.
It comes in a nice latching plastic case (think cordless drill), which is handy.
Excellent gain before feedback. Even cranked WAY up, feedback hasn't been an issue.
While it might not be on par with some of the truly high end units out there, the fact that you're considering it all means that it's good enough for your purposes.
The press & hold on/off takes a little longer than I'd like. Probably three seconds of pressing followed by a second or two before it turns on.
The channel switching is a little too easy to hit. If you're the one singing into it, I'm sure you'll learn to avoid the button, but the maid of honor last weekend hit it mid-speech.
Review of Line 6 XD-V30
We ordered one microphone for our Student Ministry Building, planning to purchase more as budget allows. Set-up was fast and efficient (no more than 15 minutes) - the fastest wireless set-up I've ever experienced. Performance is excellent and as advertised. Probably will expand the order, and when we decide to add more wireless to the main sanctuary, will probably do so with the 12-channel V70 system. Extremely well-satisfied!
Bought this for our monthly aviation club meetings to feed our Samson PA system. Our attendance is usually 40 - 100 people and are ocasionally held in an aircraft hangar. Obviously VHF and UHF mics might be affected by interference from nearby aircraft so we bought the Line 6 XD-V30. It works beautifully, we are very pleased.
