“X2 is committed to becoming the world leader of digital wireless for live-performance applications,” said Guy Coker, founder of X2. “By coupling Line 6 and X2’s shared passion for uncompromised tone, creative inspiration and technological advances, the acquisition is the perfect blend of two visionary companies.”
In less than a year since it began shipping product, X2 has become the leader in the U.S. in digital systems for guitarists. The founder, Guy Coker, was behind the highly regarded digital wireless systems of the 1990’s and his pioneering work continues today with the constant development of new technology that will undoubtedly lead the way in digital wireless systems for musical applications.
X2’s products provide significant advantages over existing analog wireless systems, finally enabling artists to achieve freedom from cables without sacrificing tone. Digital wireless technology allows for greater dynamic range and frequency response matching that of high-quality audio cables and providing a "wired" feel to the musician. Digital technologies "lock-out" all other sources of outside RF interference to deliver clear, pristine sound. In addition, unlike leading analog systems, set-up and use is extremely intuitive.
“The addition of X2 enhances Line 6’s position of creating products that are intuitive, affordable and deliver unbelievable tone,” said Mike Muench, Line 6’s Chief Executive Officer. “As one of the leading manufacturers of music creation products, Line 6 can provide support and distribution to put the finest digital wireless technology into the hands of musicians everywhere.”
