The Shure QLXD2/SM86 is a digital handheld wireless microphone transmitter compatible with QLX-D and ULX-D receivers. It comes equipped with an SM86 cardioid condenser capsule that features a frequency response tailored for clear vocal reproduction. The cardioid polar pattern helps to isolate the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise.

The QLXD2/SM86 operates on a 42 MHz VHF tuning range with 1680 selectable frequencies available. It provides up to 9 hours of operation on two AA batteries, with a transmission range up to 330' and a selectable 1/10mW RF power output.

With a rugged, yet lightweight aluminum housing, the QLXD2/SM86 transmitter delivers pristine audio quality and RF performance, as well as AES 256-bit encryption for secure transmission and advanced rechargeability options. It is well suited for sound reinforcement applications in medium-sized venues and houses of worship as well as A/V installations in conference, educational, and corporate facilities.

Clear, Accurate Audio with Interchangeable Capsule

  • The unit delivers clear, reliable 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio.
  • The SM86 capsule features a two-stage “pop” filter that reduces wind and breath noise.
  • The interchangeable capsule design allows you to replace the SM86 capsule with a Shure capsule that’s ideal for your application and simply screw it onto the transmitter—including SM58, KSM8, SM87A, Beta 58A, Beta 87C, KSM9 capsules, and more.

User-Friendly Features in a Rugged Housing

  • The unit quickly syncs with a wireless receiver via infrared at the touch of a button.
  • The adjustable input sensitivity on the transmitter accommodates mic levels ranging from booming voices to quiet speech.
  • Frequency and power lockout functions prevent accidental or unauthorized changes during events.
  • A backlit LCD with easy-to-navigate menu and controls lets you quickly access frequency, group, and channel settings, along with mute and lock status, and RF output.
  • 1/10mW selectable RF output power allows you to increase either the transmitter's range or the number of mics operating simultaneously.

Convenient Power Management Options

  • Operates for up to 9 hours on two AA batteries.
  • Optional Shure SB900A lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack offers intelligent power management with over 10 hours of battery life, precision metering in hours and minutes, and zero memory effect.
  • External charging contacts allow for docked battery charging with the SBC200 dual-docking charger (available separately).
  • The networkable SBC220 charger (available separately) allows for remote power monitoring via Shure’s Wireless Workbench software.

My receiver is a J50 unit. With the J50A be the correct transmitter?
Asked by: seth
Yes, you can use the QLXD2/B87A-J50A transmitter with your QLX-D-J50 or ULX-D-J50 receiver. The FCC recently changed regulations for the frequency band above 616 MHz. This range is no longer available for use by wireless microphones and is now designated for use with broadband. Due to these changes, Shure has discontinued the J50 band (572 to 636 MHz) and replaced it with the J50A band (572 to 608 + 614 to 616 MHz), which covers much of the same bandwidth as J50. Older QLX-D and ULX-D components that operate on the J50 band can be used with newer components operating on the J50A band.
