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.

You're able to use a maximum of 4 B5RC units at one time simultaneously. If you are using other Wireless devices in the 2.4G spectrum, however, you may get interference.

NUX Wireless

By: on 18 May 2022
these wireless kits are great, work excellent with active pups (emg's and SD EMTY Blackouts) aswell as passive. Well worth the money comes with great little carry\charge case, no loss in sound quality, Give them ago

Nux Wireless System

By: on 12 April 2022
We've had other wireless systems for out instruments, but after a while they had problems sticking to a channel. You'd be halfway through a song and they'd lose connection. Not so with the NUX. As long as they are charged up, they work every time. And they work for a long time on a single charge. We use them for about three hours at a go at least. And here's the next good thing. Their case is a charging station in itself. After using them all morning, we plug them into their case and they are charged up, ready for the afternoon session, by the time we get back from lunch. You can do this three or four times before you have to recharge the case. The only problem we have had is they are not necessarily compatible with all instruments. They work fine with our guitars, ukuleles and basses, but my UBass sets up a slight hum through the amp.

Exceeds expectations!

By: on 27 January 2022
This product sounds better than the new lead I bought alongside it with my transaction. I know, because I used nothing but the wireless system for a week, until I forgot to charge it one night and it died, so I had to use my cable. Which still sounded great, but I'm not kidding. This setup is worth all the money you pay for it

Thank you very much for the review. We are glad to hear that the item is working great for you.

Nux B5RC replacement

By: on 8 September 2021
The case of my Nux B5RC stopped charging. After reporting it to Artist Guitar, they where happy to replace it. I'm glad to have it back because it works very well Btw, it was only the case, individual I could still charge the units. I highly recommend the product and the great service Artist Guitar provides

Nux B5RC guitar wireless system

By: on 19 August 2021
This wireless system works well with my basses and is very simple to get up and running. The design of the carry pouch is really clever as it acts as a charging station for the transmitter and receiver while keeping the units together in storage. So far I have only used it at home where I practice, so haven't tested how far I can stray from the receiver before signal dropout or how good the system rejects interference, but for my purposes it'll do just fine.

Artist Guitars Response
Thanks for the review and we're happy that you're satisfied with your wireless system. cheers

Excellent product

By: on 18 August 2021
I would like to begin by saying the people at whine about noise from this wireless unit are indeed wrong. Also made me feel like I should not buy but glad I did regardless All guitars I have are active pickups and yes already this product will go well with passive pickups but for the active player which we are around. No noise what so ever running noise gates on profiles of my Kemper. Awesome product and for the price will recommend to anyone as I do have an akg unit with a busted receiver and the price of those are ridiculous for the way they are made...

Artist Guitars Response
Thank you so much for sharing this with us and will definitely help us a lot. Cheers!

Works well with passive pickups

By: on 13 August 2021
Works well with my passive only pickup instruments, makes a wireless noise with my active pickup instruments, presumably frequency interference, would still recommend as it is a great system for having fun and moving around while playing but will only work well with passive pickup instruments.

A massive upgrade to the original B2

By: on 26 June 2021
I 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.

Awesome Customer Service

By: on 13 April 2021
I 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.

Thank 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 system

By: on 29 March 2021
Thankyou 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: on 23 March 2021
Bought 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.

Good service good product good selection product range for this company looking forward for the next arrival of the bass amp head &cabinet

Best value. Excellence product

By: on 20 July 2020
I'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 Convenient

By: on 2 July 2020
I'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 Wireless

By: on 27 June 2020
Had 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 tried

By: on 24 May 2020
I 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

Awesome

By: on 9 May 2020
Fantastic product and quick postage as usual by Artist. The Nux B5RC have not skipped a beat and have exceeded my expectations. Use them in a room with several other wireless devices and wifi with no interference whatsoever. I get less hum out of the Nux B5RC than I do using a high quality cables in the same environment. It’s awesome to be able to sit out on the deck and practice while the amp is inside not having to fuss around with cables or use a small practice amp. The unit pairs instantly once both units are turned on and the one push to put the device on standby is a handy feature. Only negative is the battery however it’s not a major issue if used for a few hour sesh but the only thing I’ve noticed, I get about 3 hours of playing out a full charge on transmitter before requiring to plug them back into the case for awhile to continue playing. I haven’t used any other wireless guitar systems so can’t compare with others, but I’m very happy with these and would purchase again.

B5RC review

By: on 11 March 2020
I bought the B5RC from Artist Guitars and had the usual quick delivery. I have a lot of guitars in the house and the B5RC worked very well with standard Fender electric and bass guitars (both passive pickups), with Artist's own electro/acoustic dreadnought (D200 CEQ) and even a cheap Aldi electric guitar The Rx unit plugged into a Yamaha amp and a Zoom G5 effects processor without any problems. No hums or other noises - very clean and with no discernable lag. I have also used the B5RC with a passive stick-on (with double-sided tape) microphone that is attached to a classical guitar. The microphone terminates in a 1/4 female plug that the Tx unit just plugs into. The Tx unit powers the mic. Very clean sound. This setup is much more convenient that having to use an external mic/stand when using a normal classical guitar (with no electrics built in). The Tx and Rx units pair up super fast - less than a second. When I first turned both units on for the first time, I saw just one quick red blink and then a steady green on both units. I thought the units were defective and were not pairing up; until I plugged both in and found that both were ready to go - very impressive compared to how kludgy Bluetooth pairing can sometimes be. Unfortunately, the B5RC does not play so well my the Yamaha Silent guitar (SLG200 Classical). I don't think the output of this guitar is passive as it has its own basic effects processor and requires a battery to work. The sound is wooly - like if you have the tone control turned down to the minimum or if there is a thick blanket between you and the speaker. I find this annoying and disappointing after enjoying the crystal clear sound with the other guitars. I also get a constant soft humming and this humming gets louder if I move the guitar( with the B5RC plugged in) to within one or two meters of my home's network router. The SLG200 normally works flawlessly with a cable - no noise at all and clean sounding. Note that I do NOT experience this humming or network router interference problem with the other guitars. I really want to have this silent guitar used on stage without a cable but it's a definite no go with the B5RC because of the sound quality and noise issues. I don't know if the problems is specific to the Yamaha/B5RC combination or if the B5RC may not play nice with other active type instruments/systems. The Artist dreadnought (D200 CEQ) has a Fishman system (I assume this is an active system) and the B5RC has no problems working with this guitar. The B5RC certainly works beautifully with passive pickups/mics.

No more tripping over cables. No dropouts. Great sound quality and lasts quite a while on a charge. Great little product.

NUX B5RC 2.4Ghz Wireless Guitar System

By: on 13 February 2020
Purchased this wireless guitar system as I wanted something that was reliable and worked well. The NUX B5RC fits the bill perfectly. I walk around the house and do not have any dropouts, even through walls. Tested near my wireless modem and no problems at all. (This has not been the case with other systems I have tried). It is well built and has a nice solid feel to it. Little smaller than other systems and that is a bonus as well. Also the case that you store them in recharges the units when not in use, very handy. Very happy and would not hesitate to recommend it to any guitarist, bassist looking for a wireless system that just works as it should.

No drop outs

By: on 21 January 2020
I suppose time will ultimately tell but this wireless system has not given me drop outs, I had been thinking something else in line was causing the problem but had been using a cheaper wireless system so these may have proved where the issue was!...The recharge in the case idea is totally practical..I put a magnetic plug into the case mico usb port to make charging a matter of clipping on the lead. This is a totally practical solution to a useable no cable system with easy recharge in case! The case holds its own battery which will recharge units several times on its own

bought a Swiff w50 from Artist Guitars but was not happy with the sound so i returned it back to the store for a refund which the good staff at Artist were happy to do. While l was there the staff suggested l try the new NUX B-5RC wireless system. Wow what a huge difference very natural sounding with no noise l tried it on my strat and Maton electric acoustic and it sounded brilliant.Big thanks to the guys at Artist.
