  1. Listening to the comparisons, it really can't live up to the 416. It's just so muddy side-by-side. However, if it proves to be as tough as they are claiming (which it seems it might actually be), then it would serve well for particularly unsavory situations (heavy rain, snow, etc). Compared to the other mics in it's price point, it sounds pretty great. Might make a good backup for cheaper kits.
  2. Thanks!
  3. I've been curious about buying some new radio mics, how quickly will the 600 block become illegal? Would I be able to get at least a year or two out of the equipment or would I be lucky to get a few months?
  4. Would these still be a good buy with the FCC getting rid of the 600+ frequency range? I might only get a year out of the system before they become obsolete.
  5. Lately I've been using my Roland R-88 on set for some small narrative and documentary work, and I've been looking to increase my battery life. However, I've been looking into external battery sources (Np-1's and the like) and have had some trouble figuring out how to get a battery setup working in a bag. A lot of the battery info and connectors online have VERY minimal information available, and I haven't been able to discover how I would go about setting up a system that would work, so I guess I'm just asking for some pointers of where to start? The Roland has a special battery sled for AAs, as well as a 4 Pin XLR (9v-16v) for external power, so I'm not sure what I need.
