    I have been recording sound for almost 20 years. Mostly TV, doc & lifestyle.
  1. Call Lectro with the serial number. Or, if you're handy, it's probably labeled on one of circuit boards. Grab a screwdriver.
  2. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    I like the 7506 cable as well. It spends most of the time tucked into my bag, but I can release some coil when I need it.
  3. Lav on a speaker usually works well enough. If it's just a podium mic, I try to split it before their mixer, or plant a lav on the podium mic itself.
  4. DIY camera snake?

  5. signal amplification

    I believe 10-15 feet is fine, as long as you are using good quality (low loss) cable.
  6. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

  7. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    From Larry F - 'Smaller resistors give proportionally more gain. 2k is 6 dB more gain than 4k and 1k is 6 dB more again.' They recommend a 1k on the wiring diagram...so if they used a 4k resistor by accident, that would be -12db ( I think!). Imagine if they used a 10k by mistake!
  8. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Maybe the resistor is way bigger (more resistance!) than in should be? Effectively, padding the signal?
  9. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    That is the correct universal wiring.
  10. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Definitely sounds like an error in wiring (has happened to me a few times!). I typically set a cos-11/SMQV at 18-20.
  11. UCR 211 pilot tone

  12. Countryman Lav's

    I have a couple that I've barely used (wired for G2's) They sound good to me, I just find the cable a bit stiff. When trying to hide the head, the stiff cable has a tendency to twist and made a bulge in all the wrong places (sometimes!)
  13. SMA 50 ohm termination

    I had the same issue...worse performance with the distro. You can try Lectro PF25 filters on the antennas.
  14. What is this blue bracket?

  15. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    Are you hearing phase cancellation because of delay introduced by a digital wireless system?
