  1. Robert, I remember Pinewood and Shepperton studios in the UK mid 80's. The red light and bell were the exclusive domain of the Sparks. Last time I was there it was a runner in charge of it and people were wandering in and out when the red was up as all the door interlocks seemed to have been removed or weren't working
  2. When describing the cable orientation it is much easier to use the clock system. Straight up being 12 o'clock, straight down being 6 etc. I can't think of one cable technician in the Uk who doesn't use this system.
  3. In weight alone it's a no brainer. The Kortwich is only a few ounces against the SQN's few pounds.
  4. Phillip, I personally don't know anyone using the 'Pink Noise' one. It wasn't available when I had the 633's. (both of which came from Pink). I'll put the feelers out on the UK groups and find out who uses one. I would suspect that it will be very good as Pinknoise aren't just box sellers. John McCombie was a highly respected recordist before he changed track to selling gear so anything he has a hand in would get my vote of approval.
  5. I bought the three way Kortwich to use with a 633. It was excellent, very low noise and did everything it said on the box. I bought the six way to use with the Mini Solice and once again it was faultless.
  6. Fairly easy Vin until you get to my age and close up vision starts going!!
  7. There is legislation in the UK to cover this. 8% plus an admin charge of 40UK£
  8. The 3D printed caps made by Eric Kryglemans must be the way to go as they not only eliminate all the mixing of epoxy but allow you to have the cable exit at any clock orientation and also allow you to pull the xlr into its component parts to solder.
  9. I think it's made in Switzerland Mike.
  10. As a newcomer to Lectro equipment can someone put me right regarding quad boxes? Are they block frequency sensitive or is a quad box a quad box and will work with any block.
  11. Thanks for the thought Eric. It was definitely French. A search on Alibaba didn't find anything though.
  12. A while ago someone posted a link about a right angled Lemo for time code. It was definitely from France but I don't think it was Audio Root. Anyone throw any light on it?
  13. Page 1 film school manual. Remember you only get what you pay for.
  14. If it has a bulbous head I'd guess at Shure M58
  15. The first one of the bloop light and tone I saw was about 1967/8.
