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.

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
AwesomeBy: scott on 9 May 2020Fantastic 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 reviewBy: Sonny on 11 March 2020I 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.
