  1. A 1db difference between the loudest & softest parts sitting @ -.05 db on the meter seems to be reasonable.
  2. user name & password is most likely what you registered with.
  3. Be happy in the knowledge that it will only take a few weeks perhaps with Sennheiser. If it was a Schoeps that had to go back to the factory it would take 8-10 weeks before you got it back from Germany.
  4. Open the barrel on the TRS connector and check the wiring. You should have the white and ground wires together on the TRS ground connection, the black wire goes to the short tab, that's the tip connection. That has always worked for every COS-11 that get's connected to a wireless transmitter.
  5. Using .032 diameter 60% rosin core solder will eliminate any heating issues. The smaller diameter heats and flows faster than larger sizes. I use the basic Weller soldering set up with the temp knob set at #4. I don't know what temp that is but it works perfectly at that setting. Since it's not broken I don't try to fix it.
  6. Rosin core solder has all the flux you need. Stay away from mixing rosin core solder with the lead free solder as they don't bond together and cracks will develop in the solder joint. Much like a cold solder joint.
  7. The Lectro plug on units we used powered other microphones with no problems. The CMC 6 in question worked fine at both 12 & 48vp when fed from a mixer. I should add that the mic used to work fine with a plug on tx and then just stopped a couple of days ago. In any event the mic is on it's way to Schoeps via Redding Audio and should be back in about 2 months.
  8. Here's the problem, Schoeps CMC 641 mic works perfectly when powered from a mixers 48vp, however when powered from any plugon tx with 48v phantom it sounds tubby with no midrange and HF response. The problem is in the mic but why?
  9. The Monday Night party at NAB April 24th. Who's in for another night of fun at "Battista's Hole In the Wall" italian restaurant? It's behind the Flamingo Hotel.
  10. Second City Sound is 773-277-9320.
  11. Those people that I know who bought a DNS2 use them when there is no take 2 possible and/or to help improve the ambience of where they have to record. They always record a processed & unprocessed track for post (if there is any) to work on. I like to think of the DNS2 as a green screen for sound.
  12. If you're concerned get the serial number from the seller and check with Sennheiser. They'll let you know it's status. Don't judge the mic by it's shades of gray, the MKH50 is black not gray.
  13. If you opened up the HHb Portadat as I had done you would see "Aiwa" printed on the circuit boards as "Aiwa" was a Sony brand back then. I have my Portadat unit and it still works perfectly.........I think
  14. COS-11's are just about the most difficult lavs to solder. The individual leads are extremely thin and have no stability to stay in place. It's the perfect self torment for masochists.
  15. Sanken COS-11 have 3 wires, ground, White (bias) and Black (audio). Normal wiring is to tie the white wire to the ground connection along with the ground wire and the black to the positive pin connection. I've wired dozens of Sanken COS-11's that way and no one has ever brought up any polarity/phase issues.
  16. Not to worry, there will always be room for you my friend.
  17. Satay, 3900 Paradise rd, Las Vegas.
  18. "0" level on your mixer should be set at -20dbfs on the camera. On some cameras the reference setting is -12dbfs so use that as your reference setting. Just be sure output & input settings are the same, line out to line in or mic out to mic in.
  19. Word is the available bandwidth will be from 470-608.
  20. You might consider testing out a DPA lav if you can.
  21. Perhaps when it's outside clothing but not hidden under 1 or 2 layers of clothing. Not to worry, post will adjust to match.
  22. 165 euro is $175 usd. We're in the wrong business.
  23. Well said Glenn, well said indeed. Bravo.
  24. No not at all Jeff. I just thought adding a bit of semi off topic levity would take the edge off the comments. Sometimes you have to look at the big picture.
  25. And a special award to Lectro for supporting the annual RAMPS/JWSOUND mixers party at NAB every year.
