Relay® features the most advanced digital wireless technology in the industry—the same technology that professional guitarists use on stage every night. Not only does Relay deliver incredible audio quality, it sets the standard for simplicity, reliability and performance. Basically, it just works great—every time you plug in.
Hear every note in amazing detail.
As a guitarist, nothing should come between you and your tone. Relay delivers renowned 24-bit digital wireless sound quality and full 10Hz-20kHz frequency response, so you’ll hear your guitar tone in amazing detail. And with a wide dynamic range of more than 110dB (A weighted), you’ll hear the full frequency range of your guitar or bass—from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Plus, innovative Cable Tone* technology matches the unique character of a standard guitar cable
Enjoy full frequency response.
Relay sounds equally great on all types of guitars, from electric to acoustic. And for bassists, Relay goes more than an octave lower than most wireless—all the way down to a rumbling 10Hz—to capture the full range of your instrument. Plus, Relay can handle a wide range of levels from active or passive instruments, so you don’t need to worry about overloading the signal.
Don’t compromise your tone.
Most wireless systems use compression to squash your signal, resulting in thin-sounding MP3-style signal loss—not Relay. Relay delivers full frequency response, wide dynamic range, and the purest possible signal quality from input to output. Plus, Relay delivers consistent signal quality up to the range limits of your system, giving you more than enough room to roam any stage. You get the freedom of digital wireless—without compromising your tone.
HOW ANALOG SYSTEMS SQUASH YOUR SIGNAL
Analog wireless systems use the FM radio band to transmit to the receiver, which requires that the audio be compressed to avoid bumping into the channels on either side of the one you’re transmitting on. Compression is achieved by reducing gain above a certain level, which has the effect of flattening out the audio. In other words, your sine waves become squared off. Noise is also introduced from the FM process, further reducing the signal-to-noise ratio. As the transmitter gets further from the receiver this noise increases causing noticeable hiss. So the recovered signal is squared off and has noise added to it. Line 6 digital wireless systems don't use compressors or expanders and the signal is binary, so it’s not affected by noise.
Say goodbye to signal interference.
When you’re performing, the last thing you want to hear is the nightly news coming through your amp. Unlike traditional analog wireless systems, Relay operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band—there’s no danger of TV broadcasts, white space devices, or other sources interfering with your audio signal. Plus, encoded DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) technology distinguishes Relay audio from other third-party signals—including Wi-Fi, laptops, smart phones and tablets—ensuring the integrity of your signal.
