Battery Bud II

DX2040

 

Compact, True Diversity wireless receiver that has 32 pre-programmed switchable frequencies across 24 MHz and incorporates enhanced multi-channel operation for virtually flawless "Sounds like a wire" performance. Specially designed for professional field production applications in sound bags, carts or mounted on cameras. Provides unbeleivable sound quality, superb RF range with True Diversity reception and various rack options.

Menu

The DX2040 Menu is navigated via the included SwitchiR infra-red controller to adjust all parameters.

Output

The receiver output and External DC are via a durable Lemo 6-pin locking connector. We offer a selection of cables to balanced XLR with DC connections for use with popular battery distribution systems.

Powering

Can be powered for up to 5 (standard) or 10 (lithium) hours by 2xAA 1.5v batteries, available anywhere in the world. It can be externally powered (with a supply range from 6-18v DC) using cables available from Audio.

What is ‘true diversity’?


Most manufacturers offer ‘diversity receivers’ with two antennae connected to only a single receiver. Signal switching 
takes place between the antennae (at rf level) which means there is often an audible ‘click’ on the recorded sound as 
the signal being delivered to the receiver is momentarily interrupted during switching. With the true diversity DX, 
that problem doesn’t happen since switching takes place between the two receivers at the audio frequency level with 
no interruption of signal.

Menu Control with SwitchiR


The DX2040 Menu is navigated via the included SwitchiR infra-red controller to adjust all parameters. You just need to point the SwitchiR at the top of the DX2040 within a couple inches to make changes. Press the OK button to set the desired value.

The sound professional can use the Control-X device to switch the transmitter On/Off, even when it is worn beneath clothing - great for film and drama.

It’s so straightforward you won’t need any further written instructions from us.
