Up to 12 compatible channels per group with group and channel scan for easy set-up.

What’s the difference between the old and the new “PG Wireless System”?

With the old PG Wireless System “PG” is the name for the microphones as well as for the receivers. With the new system, the name “PG” stands for the whole line of microphones in differentiation to SM and Beta microphones. The receivers name is “BLX”. This receiver is also part of SM and Beta Wireless Systems.

The new PG Wireless Systems come with the Analogue Wireless Receivers that provide improved linearity and frequency response as well as up to 12 compatible channels per frequency band with group and channel scan for easy set-up.

Rack mount Analogue Wireless Receiver for up to 12 compatible channels per group with group and channel scan for easy set-up.
