    Mercedes Metris OR Chevrolet Express 3/4?

    Hey all, I am going to invest into a production van in the near future and I am starting my research. Any input from current owners of either platform would be greatly appreciated. I feel the Metris is more appealing visually. However, I appreciate the Chevy's ability to perform your own in-house maintenance. ( I change my own oil/brakes/anything not needing a lift). Chevy Express 3/4 Pro's- Robust Chassis Powerful V8 Self Maintenance More dealership locations ?? Con's- Heavy Not as stylish Looks like rape van Looks like commercial vehicle making it target for theft Not as customizable Sound proofing/insulation/road noise? ?? Mercendes Metris Pro's- Mercedes ( Brand perception) Sleek design Advanced cabin technology Low height for parking garages ?? Con's- Expensive maintenance Fewer service locations Unable to self service ??

    Sound Devices MM-1 preamp

    I just got a used MM-1 on Friday. I love that little guy. I can tape it to my Zoom and get a decent plant mic recording.

    USB-C Connector

    USB-C is 2X as fast. 10Gbps. Thats a difference between one hour or thirty mins on a 64GB card. "The latest advance to come out of the USB Implementers Forum is the USB Type-C connector, a device with gigabits of bandwidth and can handle enough current to power a laptop. It’s the future, even if Apple’s one-port wonder isn’t." The USB C is more robust than it appears. I recently pushed a small HD off the desk and it swung from the USB C port on my MacBook Pro. I was surprised that the small USB C port did not get bent or wonked in any way. The HD never ejected, it stayed booted. I was very surprised myself that it did not eject the drive. USB2-USBC adapters, cables and accessories are not created equal. Some will work, some will not, depending on if they paid Apple. I was initially hesitant towards USB C, after using it for 7 months. I hardly think of it twice. +1, this is gospel.

    @John Blankenship Happy Birthday buddy! 🎚️🎂
  10. It's all good until your WiFI network gets compromised. I apologize in advance for my ranting. FYI- Did everyyone know there are up to 14 channels of WIFi available from most routers and the majority of routers are default set to channel 1. Change your Wifi channel to an open channel and watch your Netflix truly fly. +1, In all fairness, I haven't learned to communicate with "live events people". Your no luddite. Could you try running both for a few gigs? A cable and a Wifi feed? A wireless Wifi network audio feed has to be very reasonably priced these days. SONOS is a good company also. Maybe contact Plantronics directly in Santa Cruz. They probably already have an enterprise quality solution available.

    Behringer tried to sue Dave Smith Instruments, forum posters

    Behringer is trash. Sometimes useful albeit. Dave Smith is coveted rare earth sound. Haters gonna hate.

    Question Re: Updating Firmware On Sound Devices Products -

    Great idea Mike. I like the idea of having an SD card pre loaded with previous firmware revisions. Less downtime.

    Question Re: Updating Firmware On Sound Devices Products -

    Yes. It is written to the internal drive on the Sound Devices machine to operate the system, ( OS ) as Mac likes to call it. No need to retain original file on SD card. It's 76 degrees and gorgeous outside here. Good day to you too!

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    "There are so many misunderstandings about vitamins, that it is well-known that much false information is present. One such VERY misunderstood vitamin is Vitamin C. Our government rates Vitamin C by the amount of Ascorbic Acid it contains. Well, let me enlighten you. Ascorbic Acid is merely a COMPONENT of the Vitamin C Complex." Hmm…Not bad info.

    Schoeps CMC3u/CMC5 Amplifier Cleaning

    So much history. I cannot say for sure this was the exact mic used, I won't speculate. It is the real deal. No hotrod. @pverrando I have a 12T Power Schoeps with your name on it as soon as I get some extra cash. I've only heard positive things.
