“The Astral Series is the result of years of research and development in wireless technology to design robust, versatile solutions for mobile RF professionals that can be used around the world.

The A20-Nexus uses Sound Devices’ SpectraBand technology to provide a global tuning range of 470-1525 MHz and RF filtering capabilities that allow it to use legal RF frequencies worldwide. Additionally, the receiver features long-distance remote control of transmitters and integrated RTSA (Real Time Spectrum Analysis). You can control it using a mobile phone or tablet via a web app, and power and connect it to audio via Power over Ethernet (PoE+) and Dante. As a result, the combination of features allows it to replace multiple devices in any RF professional’s wireless toolkit, and its compact form factor makes it suitable for use in a bag, on a sound cart, or in a fixed installation.
