UX1200 Wireless System

Connecting an instrument to an amplifier using a standard ¼” instrument cable has long been the classic, tried and true method. It’s simple, cost effective, and preserves the sonic integrity of your instrument, so long as you use quality cables. The wired method is not without its faults though. As reliable as it is, there’s no denying that it tethers you to your mic stand or instrument and restricts your movement around the stage. You can only go as far as your cable will let you, and if you like to move around a lot, you have to constantly be cautious of stepping on your cable, tripping over it, or tangling it up.

Wireless systems provide worry-free connections for your instrument or microphone, let you move about freely, and leave the stage clutter-free. However, these systems have some downsides too. They cost more than instrument cables, require batteries, and may have bad reception in certain venues. These factors alone tend to ward away some musicians looking to free themselves from the cables that bind. But with the right wireless system, it’s completely possible to get that extra mobility without sacrificing your tone.

Carvin Audio’s UX1200 Wireless System is a lightweight, low-profile system that offers night after night of superior tone and dependability. With unbalanced 1/4" and balanced XLR connections and a wide frequency response, this unit works perfectly for vocals, guitar, bass, and other similar instruments.

The UX1200 system offers plug and play functionality and is packed with all the features that will help you streamline your show. Its front LCD panel is lighted and crystal clear, making setup a breeze on dark stages. A built-in low battery indicator lets you know exactly how much juice you have left to work with, so the audience won’t hear a silent remix of your playing.

This unit provides crystal clear reproduction of all of your instrument’s nuances, thanks to dual antennas that feed two independent RF receivers on the same frequency setting. Automatic circuitry constantly compares and selects the superior signal to provide the best sound quality possible and reduce the possibility of interference. Plug in and enjoy no loss of sound, distortion, static, or volume drops.

The UX1200’s chassis is made of steel, weighs just over two pounds, and can be mounted in a standard rack, making it a truly roadworthy and durable solution. If you’re looking to lose the cables, Carvin Audio’s UX1200 will make the transition an easy one.
