Review: NU-X B-2 Wireless System

(Image credit: NUX)

Admittedly, I was never much of a “wireless guitar” guy. I hated having to deal with replacing batteries and traveling with a bulky receiver and a transmitter that had to live on my guitar strap. Plus, I always thought the sound wasn’t as good as using a really good instrument cable. Well, things have drastically changed in regards to wireless technology - especially cheap wireless guitar systems - because companies like NU-X have improved audio quality and streamlined the idea of wireless guitar with the release of its NU-X B-2 2.4 GHz Wireless System. It combines a transmitter with a receiver that fits in the palm of your hand, a built-in rechargeable battery and crystal-clear guitar response that sounds as good as a high-quality instrument cable.

The NU-X B-2 2.4 GHz Wireless System delivers 32-bit digital wireless sound quality and detailed 44.1 kHz frequency response with a wide dynamic range of more than 110 dB, which allows for a full frequency range of your guitar or bass. The B-2 features a cleverly elegant 1/4–inch swivel-jack design (280° of rotation) on the transmitter and receiver so you can easily plug in and rotate the unit away from your playing area. Both units include a power on/off switch and a channel button to scroll through the four channels, with red/green LED indicators. What’s even better is the B-2 operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency range, away from any TV or radio signal interference.

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
