These digital wireless systems offer transparent 24-bit digital audio, reliable RF performance, networked control, AES-256 encryption, and Dante digital audio (for ULXD4D and ULXD4Q dual and quad receivers).
A variety of new accessories are available for ULX-D and QLX-D in the 1.5 and 1.8 GHz spectrum, including the UA844+ antenna distribution system, UA834 in-line amplifier, UA874 active directional antenna, UA221 passive antenna splitter, and the UA845UWB antenna distribution system (switchable for VHF, UHF, 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GHz, 1.8 GHz).
The 1.5/1.8 GHz ULX-D and QLX-D Digital Wireless versions will begin shipping in spring 2017.
