In 1990, the Shure "L" series VHF wireless system was introduced. It was to have been named the "Liberty" series, however a legal search found that "Liberty" was already used as a pro audio product trademark. In a flash, "Liberty" was shortened to "L." Five years later, the "L" series was replaced by the "LX" series. "X" was added to "L" simply as a place-holder during the internal development and design stages. "LX" became so commonly used within Shure that the Marketing Department reluctantly decided to use it as the official series model number. This led to "SLX," "ULX," "ULX-D," "GLX-D," "BLX," and now "QLX-D."
