Zaxcom has launched the MRX414 module receiver to its digital recording wireless line.
Paired with the Nova recorder / mixer, two of these modules will allow the Nova to receive audio from eight separate transmitters all in one unit that weighs 3.7 lbs / 1.7 kg, until now a typical sound bag with similar capabilities would weigh upwards of 25+ lbs.
MRX414 is a module style receiver compatible with the Nova mixer / recorder, RX-12 and RX-12R.
The UHF diversity receiver utilises the High Q tunable tracking front end filter within its host device to combat interference and extend range. The module is compatible with any Zaxcom digital recording wireless transmitter and with all current Zaxcom modulations (Mono, Stereo, XR and ZHD96).
The MRX414 is one of the most power efficient digital wireless receivers on the market - the module draws 300 mA @ 13 VDC (150 mA per receiver). The MRX414 is being retailed at $3,350.
