Shure is discontinuing more 600MHz wireless systems.
As we've been warning for over a year, it's time to stop buying 600MHz wireless microphone and personal monitoring systems, unless you have no other choice. Unfortunately, some of you have no other choice due to location, and other systems in use.
At some point in the future, the FCC will issue a statement that will give users 42 months to vacate systems operating in the 600MHz band (approximately 600-699MHz). And at this time, we have not received that notice, which could come next week or in the next few years.
Eeffective immediately, Shure is discontinuing the following from BLX® Wireless, UHF-R® Wireless and PSM®900 Personal Monitor Systems:
K12 and M15 frequency band SKUs in BLX Wireless Systems
K1 and L6 frequency band SKUs in PSM900 Personal Monitor Systems
L3 in UHF-R Wireless Systems
Shure knows what's coming (even if it doesn't know when), and we'd all be wise to follow their lead. Our opinion is that early discontinuations will keep Shure from having to pay large trade-in rebates like they did when the 700MHz range was similarly abandoned in 2010. Please contact us with any questions you have.
