: : : The X905 (XWIRE) system is no longer manufactured by XWire. They sold out to Sennheiser. The unit are produced as the Sennheiser 1091 1092 and 1093 900MHz digital quadversity systems. The only differences are that it uses 16 bit A/D/A converters and comes in a nice molded travalling case, half rack system. Sells for around 550.00 US. For guitar there is no difference in sound, 16 bits is way enough for guitar. There is a difference in sound for a miked drum or a full orchestra.

: : The bassplayer mag w/ Stephan Lessard (DMB) on the cover shows his setup. He uses a Shure U4D-UB wireless system.

: Geez...I just looked at the Shure website...the receiver ALONE runs for $1,600 (single channel). That is a bit out of my price range.

: Anyone know anything about the XWire? Is it still made? Did someone else buy the rights and continue manufacturing it?
