  1. Yeah, I guess make sure the transmitter is in IFB mode but I'm not sure what that does exactly. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. I have to admit that I've tried multiple sets and they all have a ridiculous noise floor. Kind of surprising. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk One mixer I know uses a 411 with a headphone amp. Very bulky but sounds incredible. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. The LT has performed very well for me RF-wise. It is a little too chunky for my taste in form factor which is my only really gripe about it. I did have one fall off of an actor (probably my fault) without my knowledge. When we ran the subsequent take, I had no signal from him. I went over and he had set the pack back on his belt, but the battery door I guess had come slightly open when it fell so while the batteries were still in there (loosely), they weren't powering the Tx. Everything ended up being OK but I don't believe that could have happened with the SMQv. I think when the LT first came out, there was some speculative talk about a 100mW wideband SMQv. I don't know if something like that is in development but if it was, I'd probably buy 4-6 of them. I rarely use the 250mW setting and I think Lectro said 250 mW wouldn't be possible with the widebands which is fine with me. I just desperately don't want to buy the SSM's because I don't want to invest in new lavs with different connectors (though the new threaded B6s look interesting) and of course, they run on those cell phone batteries. If this hypothetical wideband SMQv isn't announced in the next 12 months or so, I guess I'll bite the bullet and get maybe 2 SSMs just to have more wideband transmitters that aren't LT's. Of course it's nice to be able to hide them too.
  4. +100% One of my favorite things about the company is that they are always active and honest on this forum and that we always get the answers we need.
  5. I thought the SNA could only cover 100 MHz at a time (about 4 blocks), so how is it you're making it work from 19 through block 23 for a total of 5 blocks of bandwidth?
  6. Reviving this thread. Has Lectro officially fixed the issues users were having with SRc's? If so, starting with which serial numbers?
  7. I never knew the gain setting affected the range. That is really surprising to me. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. KGraham, I took a listen to your file and while the noise floor is noticeable, especially compared to the 641, it's not a deal-breaker for me. Especially with the plug-ins, denoisers, etc they have today. Plus, for moving car scenes, they'll do a good amount of sound design which I think would bury the hiss.
  9. I just ordered two and now you guys are making me nervous. I'd be interested to know if an XLR buttplug sending 12 or 48 volts helps. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  10. But is block 26 still completely doomed? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. I'm not sure actually, that's why I was asking. There's been talk about it for a little while now. I did not know about the 4 different wires though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  12. Just found this other thread: Kortwich looks very promising as does the AudioRoot Femto: http://www.filmtontechnik.de/kortwich-produkte/preamp/#c3159 http://www.audioroot.fr/product/femto/ (but not for wireless boom unfortunately)
  13. Thanks for the tip on the peeling. I'll give it a try. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah these are a no-brainer. Cheaper, smaller, and last around 50% longer than the NP-1s. I use the Remote Audio "skin" version with the AudioRoot cup and a BDSv4u. Excellent. The cup is a little tight which is better than a little loose but it does scare me when putting in/taking out batteries because I'm afraid of bending the pins but so far absolutely no problems after 6 months of use.

  15. Anyone using the Remote Audio cup? Curious about it's hold on the batteries Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
