    $199 shipped CONUS (FYI - this unit sold for $950 in 1998!)

    Here's your chance to own a bit of working history!

    These original X-Wire systems were the choice of many top touring pro players -- today these units are still highly sought after but are in rare supply since the company ceased production* in the late '90s. Xwire was a legend in its field.


    This system does not alter your sound at all. There is no compounding circuitry, no frequency dialing (just pick one of five channels), no squelch - no hassle! Just plug it in and forget about it.

    The receiver actually contains two diversity receivers with a total of four internal antennas for exceptional performance. Battery life and signal strength indication are displayed via backlit LCD and is extremely accurate. And the best part - this was made in the USA!

    *XWire was bought out by Sennheiser who was threatened by their superior technology. Sennheiser paid a handsome sum for the patents making this a classic case of the big boy gobbling up the upstart who had a better product. As a result, these units are now highly collectable and extremely coveted.

    Product Information:
    • XR905 Quadiversity Receiver: (19", 2U rack mount)
XT905 transmitter (belt pack): Crazy tight, has never come off a strap.

    • Power supply: (110/120) (unit accepts both AC and DC at 12V)
    • 20-BIT DIGITAL UHF WIRELESS receiver for guitar or bass
    • Connectivity: XLR and 1/4" output at the receiver and 1/4" input at the transmitter
    • Impedance: High impedance
    • Wireless Technology: UHF 20 bit Digital
    • Transmitter Battery Life: 11 hours
    • Max. Transmit Range: 300 feet
    NOTE: The system works perfectly fine, I'm just moving to a much smaller, portable pedal board system, so I'm selling all of my racked items. The plastic on one of the rack holes is cracked, but is not an issue as the plastic is backed by a metal plate. All I did was simply use a bigger flat washer on the rack screw.
