Xvive U2 Guitar Wireless System
I didn't even know the Xvive U2
existed until a couple weeks ago and when I searched the forum found out I had missed the boat in the deals section for a SDOTD (only post I could find). After spending time researching different units but never buying one (the only one I was considering was the Line 6 G70, but every time that goes on sale it also goes into a back-order status for months), the Xvive U2 suddenly made a lot of sense... its sole purpose is to remove the TS cable from any two things you would use the cable on. No battery pack, no extras, no frills, just a small transmitter and receiver that can be easily plugged into wherever needed. [After reading reviews whining about wireless battery packs, I realized I didn't care to lug one around either.]
I impulse-bought one last week and got to test it out this weekend. The only real downsides I have seen is that they do not auto shutdown, and some noted connection issues in dense wi-fi environments. Overall, very slick, cheap, and functional for my uses... simply pop the transmitter or receiver out and swap it around as needed (they are incredibly portable, so can carry them in your pocket too). I can definitely see where a battery pack on a guitar strap would be a PITA (why folks by multiple transmitters).
On paper, these have 5 hour run time, 100' range, and 6ms latency. They come with a Y cable for charging both units, and have a firm hinge so the unit can not only be folded, but also positioned as desired and stay put (however, there is no way to tighten this hinge, so I have no idea if over time it will loosen). I have yet to test it for any "recording" situation, but other than that got to run all over the place playing yesterday (I just wanted the sans cable part anyway). The only concern for others is the dense wi-fi aspect... some said no issues, others said they had some... so for folks gigging with these that is something to consider.
They also have a U3 (for condenser mics) in the works or possibly released already. They are priced higher, and I didn't really look into them other than to see that they exist.
Just and FYI for folks who are tired of instrument cables and do not already own a wireless system.
