Line 6, Inc. introduces the V75-40V, a new wireless microphone that combines Line 6’s digital wireless technology with the Earthworks WL40V premium hyper-cardioid capsule. Designed for use with Line 6 XD-V75 systems, V75-40V is designed to deliver high performance and high-end sound quality, representing, what Line 6 calls, “a new standard in digital wireless performance.”

“We're pleased to partner with Earthworks, an industry leader in high-definition microphones," says Max Gutnik, vice president of Products, Line 6. “Together we've created a digital wireless microphone that delivers performance previously found only in the highest quality wired studio microphones.”

“Line 6’s expertise and experience in digital wireless coupled with Earthworks' precision microphone technology—stemming from our measurement background—lends itself to a superior product for the live sound and worship markets,” says Heidi Robichaud, president and CEO, Earthworks.

According to company announcement the new unit is designed to deliver studio-quality performance to the wireless world. The premium hand-tuned and tested capsule from Earthworks features lightning-fast impulse response, high SPL handling and a wide frequency range. A symetrical hyper-cardioid polar pattern is intended to provide exceptional detail and nuance. The result is a vocal signal that is designed to require little to no EQ.

"Our engineering team worked tirelessly to make a product that sounds as scientifically perfect as is possible," says Daniel Blackmer, director of engineering, Earthworks.

Line 6 says the XD-V system is the only wireless platform that can transmit the exceptional frequency range of the premium, hand-tuned and tested WL40V capsule from Earthworks. Featuring 24-bit precision for a full frequency response, exceptional dynamic range and no compression or expansion, the signal from Line 6 digital wireless systems is designed to be so clear and strong that it sounds and performs like a wired microphone, according to the product announcement.

The statement from Earthworks and Line 6 describes the V75-40V as a durable, dependable microphone designed to provide reliable performance night after night. The rugged metal body is designed to withstand the rigors of live performance, and a custom hard-shell touring case with soft inner padding protects the V75-40V between gigs.

V75-40V is expected to be available in October 2013.
