    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Hi Frode, well, I think Glenn nailed it when he said pixel could be a db. Where you're sitting or standing could make a db difference. If you were right here in front of me, I would want to see what you're looking at, yes. I'm just not sure at this point if there's much to see. Thank you, Martin

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Frode, In your description you mention "electronics". I'm pretty sure you meant Lectrosonics. I'm an all Zaxcom guy, but aren't Lectro antennas BNC connectors? If they are, How did you plug them into a Zaxcom? What length were both antennas cut to? Thank you, Martin

    UCR 411A bad power input

    JCC, Hi, There is a zero percent chance that radio shack has it. Gotham might, I'm not sure. I might have it, I know have the connector for Zaxcom, because I'm a Zaxcom guy. See if Gotham has it, I guess your in NYC? Send me a private message if they don't have it. Thanks, Martin P.S., When you mentioned replacing the "joint" what were you talking about? M.W.

    UCR 411A bad power input

    JCC, are you a solderer? If so, I would simply replace the power plug on the receiver. That may easily fix the problem, you would only have down time of a few minutes, and it's just a few dollars. Thanks, Martin

    Mic Power Consumption

    Constantin, "more significantly" because of? I want to make sure I'm not missing something here. Also, that Neumann mic must have some serious downside, no one seems too excited about that one. Sincerely, Martin

    Mic Power Consumption

    Hello, And then there's the Schoeps 2U at a whopping 170ma. 7.7 times the power used of the DPA. Thanks, Martin

    Tony, As far as the spacing goes, I have done experiments with the spacing and you can pack them in really tight. When I 1st started using 96, I would scan and it would put me right next to the frequency that was right before or one of the other ones I had already scanned and had entered in the previous transmitter scans. I felt like I was in a Money Python skit because I feel like I should be asking the receiver in a thick British accent "Are you serious about that frequency, really, you kant be serious". But it works great. But I still sit there and look at the frequencies and go man that's close. Sincerely, Martin

    Hello, I like both. I use z96 mostly. Maybe you should try doing what I should try doing. You get on set, hand the P.A. one of each, tell Aruly, "hey go walk for 2 minutes, then come back." All the while watching the meters, see what it says. Does anybody dislike my idea? Thanks, Martin

    Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Daniel, It has been my experience, when working with British crews, they know Zaxcom backwards and forwards, which was a surprise to me. And I mean as compared to American crews. Apparently Zaxcom is quite popular in the UK. Sincerely, Martin

    If people believe the speculation that the banks are about to go out of business and close, That's speculation historically has led to people running on the banks, and subsequently they did fail.

    Sorry, I will go fix my post. Thank you, Martin I have changed my comment into the form of a statement instead of a question, so as not to further the discussion about zoom products that the other member started. Thank you, Martin
