Simplicity at its best
You already have enough on your mind when it comes to performing. So why would you want to spend hours trying to set something up? With a Sennheiser XSW 2 Wireless System in your rig, you don't have to worry about that anymore.
Getting your system up and running is a breeze. Automatic frequency management takes the pain out of frequency switching. And if you want to do it manually, you can do that too. The easy-to-navigate receiver interface makes finding and changing settings quick and easy.
Syncing your components is simple too. Just hold the SYNC button on your transmitter until the symbol flashes, then press SYNC on your receiver. That's it. All done. All that's left to do is make sure that everything is connected to the rest of your setup, and you're good to go.
Simplicity doesn't mean limited. XSW 2 systems put you in control. With similar controls to an XSW 1 receiver, your XSW 2 receiver offers the same intuitive operation that lets you get setup in seconds. However, a selection of powerful upgrades further enhances the flexibility of your system.
Firstly, the display. You can view in-depth information about your active channel, channel bank, and specific frequency. Plus, you can see which antenna is currently in use, as well as RF and AF signal strength. And all of this can be done at a glance. You don't have to wade through menus or settings. Simply look over at the display, and you can see everything that you need to in a clear, easy to understand format.
Then there's the external antennas. True diversity operation keeps your signal clean and clear, automatically switching between your receiver's antennas to give you the best possible performance. Each antenna is linked to their own dedicated receiver module. The system detects which module has the best signal strength at any particular time, and selects the one that's strongest for receiving your signal.
The system you can rely on
You're all setup. You're on stage. And you're ready to get this show on the road. Nothing can ruin that feeling. Especially with an XSW 2 system by your side. Whether it's once a week, or five times a day, you can count on true Sennheiser quality to get you through every single performance without a hitch.
It's not just about the wireless performance either. Sennheiser products are built to last. From the back of the van, to the cramped stage side, and back home again. You want your gear to be able to endure every single part of your performance, both on and off the stage. And with Sennheiser's dedication to quality and reliability, that's exactly what you get.
You shouldn't have to feel glued in one place when you're on stage. You want to move. To perform. To be free. And with the CI1 instrument cable, you can be.
With a 1/4'' jack at one end, and a locking 3.5mm mini-jack at the other, the CI1 forms the link between your instrument and your XSW bodypack. After that, your signal is sent wirelessly to your XSW receiver, and then out into your amp or front-of-house system. No more long and dangerous cable runs that keep you tied down. You're free to be you, and to give that performance you've always deserved to give.
