The Shure MX890 desktop base for MX405, MX410 and MX415 gooseneck microphones offers cable-free installation for corporate boardrooms or other applications requiring flexible microphone configurations and MX415 miniature gooseneck microphones are suitable for boardrooms and other sites where aesthetics are important. The MX890 operates within the 518–937 MHz band and is compatible with Shure SLX wireless systems.
The Shure MX690 microphone offers cable-free installation for corporate boardrooms or other applications requiring flexible configurations. The MX690 operates within the 518–937 MHz band and is compatible with Shure SLX wireless systems.
Place the MX890 no more than 25 cm (1 ft.) from the edge of the table. Aim the microphone toward the talker and away from loudspeakers and noise sources. Use one microphone for each talker. Pickup angle with a cardioid cartridge is 130° at –3 dB. Pickup angle with a supercardioid cartridge is 115° at –3 dB.
Note: To minimize RF interference, maintain a distance of at least 0.3 m (1 ft.) between transmitters. In case of interference, increase the distance between transmitters or change channels.
Place the MX690 within 1.5 m (5 ft.) of a talker. Aim the microphone toward the talkers and away from loudspeakers and noise sources. Use one microphone for every two talkers. Pickup angle with a cardioid cartridge is 130° at –3 dB.
Note: To minimize RF interference, maintain a distance of at least 0.3 m (1 ft.)
Make sure the receiver is within sight of the transmitter. Do not place receiver behind a metal barrier or any reflective surface.
Refer to the SLX Wireless System User Guide for more information, or visit www.shure.com.
Note: To power on the transmitter without opening the battery compartment, press and hold the plastic ON/OFF button on the battery door for approximately 2 seconds, then release it.
The low-cut filter attenuates frequencies below 150 Hz by 6 dB per octave.
Note: Alkaline batteries last up to 8 hours. Rechargeable, carbon-zinc, and zinc-chloride batteries provide less operating time.
The battery meter on the LCD shows remaining battery life.
Steady Red: Power low. Replace batteries immediately
Pulsing Red: Batteries dead. Transmitter cannot be turned on until batteries are replaced.
The mute button can be configured for toggle or momentary operation.
The PUSH button toggles the microphone between active and muted states.
Note: The microphone always powers up in the active state.
There are two types of momentary operation:
Push-to-Mute: The microphone is muted only while the button is pressed and held.
Push-to-Talk: The microphone is active only while the button is pressed and held.
Hold the PUSH button and press the SELECT button. (Test the microphone to confirm the change.)
The desktop base illuminates the gooseneck microphone LED to indicate whether the microphone is active or muted. Refer to the following table:
MX890 Status Indicator
|Microphone Status||MX405 / MX410 Indicator||MX405R / MX410R Light Ring|
*To toggle between off and flashing, press PUSH and ON/OFF simultaneously.
The bi-color LED on the top of the microphone indicates whether the microphone is active or muted.
The LED can also be set to flash when muted.
MX690 Status Indicator
|Display Mode||Status Indicator|
|Steady (as supplied)||Active = Green|
|Muted = Red|
|Flashing||Active = Green|
|Muted = Flashing Green|
Press ON/OFF and SELECT simultaneously to lock or unlock transmitter settings. When locked, the current settings cannot be manually changed.
Note: Locking the transmitter settings does not disable IR frequency synchronization or the High Pass/Low Cut filter.
To use with a logic enabled receiver, you must perform an automatic sync. The LCD flashes "log" during sync. Once in logic mode, the LCD flashes "log" when powered up.
