“Line 6 digital wireless is the most trusted guitar wireless system on the market, and is used by more guitarists than any other system,” says Marcus Ryle, Chief Strategy Officer, Line 6. “Now Relay G70 takes the Relay legacy even further by providing the fastest and most advanced digital wireless technology available– while adding benefits for your entire guitar rig that no other pedal on the market offers. For performing musicians, Relay G70 represents nothing less than a revolution.”
The receiver supports multiple transmitters (additional transmitters sold separately) and allows musicians to instantly switch between instruments. Each transmitter features a locking 1/4” input that allows guitarists to plug right in without requiring a special cable. User-programmable presets on the receiver enable performers to control each instrument’s signal routing, levels and more, with the single press of a footswitch.
For example, guitarists can route an electric guitar to an amp via one of two assignable 1/4” outputs, and an acoustic guitar to the PA system through the assignable XLR output. A dedicated always-on 1/4” tuner output is also provided, in addition to a built-in tuner. And to preserve battery life in multi-instrument setups, the new intelligent sleep mode allows leaving all transmitters on with minimal battery drain on any instruments not playing.
Relay G70 provides industry-leading audio specs and the lowest latency of any digital wireless system (under 1.5ms). A custom-designed radio with four calibrated internal antennas delivers a lossless 24-bit digital signal and a wide dynamic range of over 120dB. Guitarists are able to enjoy 8+ hours of battery life with standard AA batteries, plus up to 70 hours of standby time thanks to the intelligent sleep mode. Relay G70 features a rugged stompbox form factor designed to become the centerpiece of any pedalboard, and a key component that solves real problems.
The Relay G70 system, with one receiver and one transmitter costs $699.99 MSRP, and additional Relay TB516G transmitters cost $279.99 MSRP. The Relay G75 ($699.99 MSRP) will deliver the same functionality in an amp-top form that supports an optional footswitch, and will be available in Q2 2015.
