  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. ZHD96

    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
  8. ZHD96

    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
  9. Zaxcom STA042 accept spdif 75 ohm Signal?

    Hello, You may have one the hardest question of the year award. Sincerely, Martin Hello, You may have one the hardest question of the year award. Sincerely, Martin
  10. TS-C Clap Hold issues

    Hello, I thought it was the reverse of this, TC then UB. Sincerely, Martin
  11. Putting TRX LT3 into Record mode

    And as long as your not putting too much power into the amplifier.
  12. 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
  13. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    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.
  14. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    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
  15. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Zoom is making "professional level equipment" Ha, ha, ha, wee, Good one. Mirror, And it is speculation that drives the market. Sincerely, Martin
  16. How did they capture this audio? [BBC 1979]

    GS, The audio is out of sync, adr? You mentioned how they did it when he walked to the van, we don't see his mouth, so we don't know how that was done, in other words it could have been done at a different time since we're not looking at his mouth. For the outside shots, I could do that with an 816. That doesn't seem too hard. In the closing shot when he's walking away from us, again we don't see his mouth. What do you think? Sincerely, Martin
  17. Zaxcom ZMT3 Battery Life

    Hello All, I'm curious what everybody's getting on ZMT3 battery life. Either real world or testing. What battery are you using, how long is it running your ZMT and what power level setting are you using? Thank you, Martin
  18. AES Inputs on Mixer/Recorder

    Kyle, I too have a spare Nomad, which most of the time just sits there waiting for something to go wrong, but hasn't happened yet. The problem with that is the time that it would take me to change out the Nomads and reroute everything for my current situation, is much longer than it would take me to grab 3 or 4 XLR cables and plug them into the back of the Nomad. Just that simple act and re routing the XLR's would take a few minutes, but I think that would be a lot less time than changing out Nomads. One of these times when I'm bored in my hotel room maybe I will have a race to see which one takes longer. It might not be as long a difference as I'm thinking it is. Sincerely, Martin
  19. Ursa Pro Mini AES not working

    With, Ok, now I see. You had mentioned the Zaxcom wiring, which threw me off. You're past the step of troubleshooting wiring, if your wiring is working, So that's why I got a little confused there. Thanks, Martin
  20. Ursa Pro Mini AES not working

    Within, What does the following from your original post mean? "The same occurs when hardwiring via a single xlr and setting my 633s outputs to aes." Thank you, Martin
  21. AES Inputs on Mixer/Recorder

    Kyle, I have to agree this might not be a great idea. Yes I am digital input into my Nomad, but at least I know if everything else goes to pot, that row of beautiful big holes are in the back of my mixer. And I like that. The way technology goes maybe 5 years from now, the mixers won't have XLR inputs, and younger mixers will see our XLR inputs and say "Look at you, rocking it old school". Sincerely, Martin
  22. Ursa Pro Mini AES not working

    With, You mentioned the wiring of the Zaxcom, And also that you tried coming out of your mixer with AES. If your AES wont work out your mixer, were you just mentioning the wiring coming out of the Zaxcom in case your mixer was broken, or your mixer cable was bad? In other words what I'm saying is that if you believe your mixer output AES to be working, and it won't provide signal to your device, then the other unit, the Zaxcom, would also not be able to provide AES output. Have you tried testing by having AES feed from one of your units to the other? Feed AES from Zaxcom into your mixer, and feed AES from mixer into Zaxcom? If you did, what happened? Sincerely, Martin
  23. Zaxcom ZMT3 Battery Life

    Larry, Thanks. I think I'm surprised that one amp only reduced the runtime 9%. What does it do to the runtime if you pull 40 amps? Kidding. I have done that with nimh though. If the battery you get from B&H is a identical I'm thinking you don't notice anything different in the testing. Anyting outside of one and a half percent either way. I tested LiPO batteries years later, and they had only lost a very little percentage. Larry, what is your start voltage, prior to firing up the transmitter, and what are you using for an end voltage on the test that wasn't in the transmitter. For that matter what is the shut-off voltage on the transmitter? Sincerely, Martin
  24. Zaxcom ZMT3 Battery Life

    Larry, They are much more honest when it comes to the charger rate imprinting. 400Ma charger takes less than 2 hours to charge. Ok, there we go, you can't charge a depleted 1100mah battery in less than 2 hours with a 400mah charger. Ha. You would think they would put on there, that their chargers are 575mMa chargers, then, minus testing, we might believe their batteries were 1100mah batteries. Sincerely, Martin
