Shure SLX D 1 HI

Shure announced the expansion of its SLX-D digital wireless product family with the introduction of the SLX-D Portable Systems, including the new Portable Digital Wireless Receiver SLXD5 and the Plug-On Digital Wireless Transmitter SLXD3.


The SLX-D systems offer scalability, high-performance wireless technology, superior digital audio, reliable RF performance, and convenient power management in new rugged portable formats specifically designed for the film, Electronic News Gathering (ENG), broadcasting, and video sectors.


Since its launch in 2020, SLX-D has received top ratings from audio professionals and discerning users for its wireless connection quality and clarity of digital audio. Wherever your work takes you, our new portable systems ensure that these customers can carry the reliability of SLX-D with them. SLX-D portable systems provide easy audio capture and industry-leading digital wireless technology at a competitive price that will perform perfectly in the toughest locations, states Nick Wood, Senior Director of Professional Audio Products at Shure.


High-performance wireless technology in two new robust formats

The Portable Digital Wireless Receiver SLXD5 is an SLX-D wireless receiver in a flexible and miniaturized format that can be directly mounted on the camera with the included shoe mount, as well as in an audio bag, allowing for full functionality anywhere. With IR Sync, users can easily synchronize receivers with transmitters for instant single-channel setup. SLXD5 offers the Multi-Mic mode, making it easy to manage and monitor multiple sound sources from a single receiver.

The Plug-On Digital Wireless Transmitter SLXD3 transforms any XLR source into wireless, including dynamic and condenser microphones. The SLXD3 offers phantom power and is ideal for wireless transmission from shotgun microphones. Paired with the SM63L or the SM58® (available separately), the SLXD3 is the perfect microphone for interviews.


Superior audio and high rf performance

Regardless of the audience, venue, or production, sound clarity cannot be compromised. With SLX-D portable systems, users won't have to adjust their transmitter gain settings, saving time and simplifying the path to crystal-clear audio. These solutions provide 24-bit digital audio and >118dB dynamic range, delivering the award-winning sound experience of the SLX-D wireless platform to mobile productions.

While production conditions may be unpredictable, SLX-D portable units offer worry-free UHF band RF performance, 32 channels per 44 MHz bandwidth, a transmission range of 330 feet (100 meters), and excellent spectral efficiency to deliver flawless wireless audio anywhere and anytime.


Get up and running instantly with quick and easy setup

With quick and immediate installation and intuitive setup features, SLX-D portable systems allow users to start recording immediately. The Portable Digital Receiver SLXD5 automatically scans for the best frequency and syncs with the transmitter via infrared in seconds.

Both the SLXD3 and SLXD5 incorporate a high-brightness OLED display where users can monitor battery life, assess audio and RF quality, and tune frequencies. The SLX-D Setup Guide provides access to additional educational and instructional content from any mobile device.


Don't let the show stop - Rechargeable accessories available

SLX-D portable systems are also compatible with Shure's entire ecosystem of rechargeable accessories, including the SB903 lithium-ion battery and its accompanying charger. Both the SLXD5 and SLXD3 can be powered and charged via USB-C.
