    I think the rack and more expensive stomp just have more internal antennas to prevent possible interference. Audio quality and range are still the same I believe.

    Looks even better when you are playing, blue flashy lights commence in accordance with your guitar signal above the green battery bar indicator. Its definitely one of the prettier on stage rack wireless units.

    I should have gotten the nicer stomp version, just because I run a pedal board and I have extra cables going back and fourth between my rig. The rack model looked amazing and I didn't want to wait for the $399 stomp to become available at the time. Of course now, I rarely use it anyway because I am no longer in a band.

    I need to start using mine more, I do use it occasionally, but most of my playing time is sitting in front of the amp these days.

    Didn't realise that Line 6 had bought over X2, interesting.

    I emailed them in February and they told me sometime this year hopefully.

    Different countries are using different frequency ranges for broadcasting, so it's important to find a range of frequencies that won't be affected by such broadcasts.

    We have four wireless units in our band. Both us guitarists use the Sennheiser units, our singer uses Shure, and our bassist has one of these X2 units, on my recommendation. They all sound great. The only problems are that the Shure model has had to go back to Shure for repair, twice, and the X2 battery dies quicker than a roach in acid. Why they decided on 9 volt power and put blinky lights on the transmitter I'll never know. 2AAs and a non-backlit screen are the way to go for sure, and the only real weird design issue with the X2. Our bassist replaces his battery 3 times for every time I replace mine, and we jam and play live all wireless just to avoid cable mess.
