The Shure SLX24/BETA87A is a rackmount wireless handheld microphone system that brings reliable transmission and high-quality audio to presenters, performers, clergy, and instructors. Fast to set up and easy to operate, it is suitable for A/V installations in lecture halls, conference rooms, and houses of worship as well as for use in performance spaces including musical stages, theaters, and more.

The SLX24/BETA87A features a half-rack receiver housed in a rugged, full-metal chassis. It utilizes Predictive Switching Diversity to protect the transmission from RF interference. The receiver's auto-scan function searches a 24 MHz UHF tuning range with 960 selectable frequencies available, seeking out a clean, interference-free channel, even when operating multiple systems simultaneously.

This configuration includes the SLX2 handheld transmitter with an interchangeable capsule design and equipped with a Beta 87A condenser capsule. The supercardioid pickup pattern focuses on the voice, helping to reduce feedback on loud stages. The handheld transmitter provides up to 8 hours of operation on two AA batteries, with a fixed 30mW RF power output and a transmission range up to 330'. Up to 12 wireless mics can operate simultaneously in the same space.

Fast Setup and Reliable Performance

System

  • Auto-scan instantly locates a clear, interference-free channel for safe transmission

Clear, Accurate Audio with Interchangeable Capsule

The Beta 87A condenser capsule handles SPL levels up to 140 dB and offers a smooth frequency response with a gradual presence rise and controlled proximity effect tailored for vocals. Its supercardioid pickup pattern helps isolate the voice from unwanted background noise.

The interchangeable capsule design allows you to replace the Beta 87A capsule with a Shure capsule that’s ideal for your application and simply screw it onto the transmitter—including SM58, SM86, Beta 87C, Beta 58A capsules, and more.

Improve Your Wireless Performance

Adding UA874 active antennas or PA805 passive antennas increases the range of your system and offers increased protection against interference.

The UA844+ antenna distribution system (available separately) lets you stretch the power of your antenna pairs, giving you more on-air channels in less setup time.

Add Functionality to Your System

Shure offers an SLX1 bodypack transmitter compatible with a variety of lavalier, instrument, and headset microphone options to adapt your SLX system as your needs evolve. 

  • The WL185 cardioid lavalier mic offers presenters a hand-free option with clear vocal reproduction
  • The discrete MX153 sub-miniature earset mic provides exceptional clarity in spoken word applications
  • The PGA31 is a comfortable, durable headset microphone for active performance
  • Instrumentalists can attach the WB98H/C flexible gooseneck instrument microphone for brass, woodwind, and percussion applications
  • The WA302 guitar cable lets you connect the bodypack transmitter to a guitar or bass
