Nux B5RC 2.4GHz Passive/Active Instrument Wireless System
Nux B5RC 2.4GHz Passive/Active Instrument Wireless System
The new Nux B5RC is the new wireless unit from Nux and now works with both passive and active instruments ranging from Electric Guitars, Bass Guitars, Ukeleles and other Instruments that have a 1/4" jack input. It uses 2.4GHz wireless technology and features a latency of less than 5 milliseconds. It also has a transmission distance of 15 meters and gives you the freedom and removes the hassles usually associated in using conventional cables.
The Nux B5RC now uses an automatic frequency matching technology eliminates cross-talk. The transmitter and receiver will automatically select the best channel for pairing ensuring that you are unbothered with such settings and can focus on playing. This completes the definition of plug and play.
Definitely built for the road and on the go, the Nux B5RC comes with a Rechargeable Charging Bag. This will allow you to charge the B5RCs while you are not using them and if there is no wall socket or USB port nearby. A full charged Charging Bag can charge the units 2 to 3 times. The average usage time of the B5RCs is 3.5 hours.
4 up to a maximum of 5 pairs of the Nux B5RC can be used at the same time depending on the setup and current environment of where the units are being used.

A massive upgrade to the original B2By: Chris Rulewski on 26 June 2021I had a lot of trepidation when buying this model, as I also have the original Nux B2 model. The original worked well, however had a little "tick" occasionally with the signal, and only had a playtime of around 3 hours, so not really useable. However when playing with the B5RC's, I am very pleased with the battery life (I'm averaging an on time of 5 hours per session and they still have not gone flat on me), it's performance (very solid signal) and the convenience of being able to just charge them in their case which I can keep in my guitar case between gigs. This way I know that they are always charged and I only need to charge the case once a week or so. The technology is still very Line of Sight dependant, and since I also use 2.4ghz wireless IEM's, I need to ensure that the 2 signal path "lines" don't cross each other to prevent mini-dropouts. With all this in mind, a great upgrade from the original.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for the feedback and we really appreciate your support!
Awesome Customer ServiceBy: Rod on 13 April 2021I bought a set of these last year. Work very well and do what they are meant to do, lead free connection to your amp. My bass player loved them so much he bought a set himself. While removing from their charging case a small piece of plastic broke off the corner. This didn’t effect the way they worked but I let Artists Guitars know anyway. They had me send them back and replaced them straight away. Unbelievable customer service that you rarely find these days, especially when purchasing online. Can’t thank them enough. They sell some quality music gear and back it up with awesome customer service.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for the kind words and we pride ourselves in providing high quality products partnered with high quality customer service. Thank you for the support. Cheers!
NU-X B-5RC wireless systemBy: Robert Norwood on 29 March 2021Thankyou firstly for sending a replacement set in record time. Exemplary service. Artist Guitars have chosen well to supply the NU-X B-5RC wireless system as it is a quality product. 2 features I find very useful are the mute ( no popping on instrument change) & the charging case ( great for 'top up'during gig breaks) I recommend this and other gear you supply to my muso friends . Thx. once more. Robert Norwood

Works well on certain pickups.By: Garry J Petrisic on 23 March 2021Bought these thinking they would be superior to my two sets of Xvive. Emits high pitch whine noise when plugged into LR Baggs I beam pickup. As soon as you increase the gain the whine is annoying. Works well on every thing else. To defeat the whine, I made a shield for the bottom of the transmitter using aluminium foil and electrical tape to around the on switch. This subdued the noise to almost inaudible without loss of clarity. Otherwise the charging station is really handy. A good product.

Best value. Excellence productBy: Dang on 20 July 2020I'ved used other guitar wireless systems, but NUX B5RC is the best value in term of pricing and peformance. Worked with electric guitar and acive pickup. I had the NUX for around 3 three weeks and I am very happy with it.
Works Great and Very ConvenientBy: Ken on 2 July 2020I've had these for about a week now and have used them extensively every day in my practice sessions. They have worked very reliably without any noticeable sound latency. It's also very convenient not having to use a cable. I can definitely recommend this product.
Nux B5RC 2.4GHz Passive/Active Instrument WirelessBy: Peter Dent on 27 June 2020Had problems with the Xvive U2 Wireless System I purchased from Artist Guitars and they recommended I return the Xvive to them and they would replace it with a Nux B5RC 2.4GHz Passive/Active Instrument Wireless System. I have only had the Nux for a couple of weeks but it is working well but I have not been able to test it at live gigs yet. So far it has performed really well but should to be kept well away from Modem /Routers which operate at 2.4GHz as it effects the Nux signal.
Best wireless system I’ve triedBy: Daniel on 24 May 2020I did have the NUX B2 for a long while and had a whole bunch of issues with it and after replacing it with this I can 100% say this is the superior product. It’s built better, more feature packed, no background noise (compared to a tiny bit in the B2), has a much better system to charge it with the carrying case and is smaller which contributes to the fact that it looks nicer
