  1. Probably a (fairly) standard "Nigerian 419" scam. They will send you a check for some amount over what was agreed upon, then they'll ask you to wire the difference to a 3rd party. The check will be bogus, but it will take your bank a few days to figure that out. Thus, the only real money that will move is yours into the 3rd party account.
  2. Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Lectrosonics AMM and AMJ antennas have SMA connectors, FYI.
  3. Congratulations to Mark Wingarten, Gregg Landaker, Gary A. Rizzo & team for their well-deserved Oscar for Best Sound Mixing on Dunkirk! And congrats to all the nominees - all excellent films: Baby Driver, Blade Runner 2049, The Shape of Water, and Star Wars, the Last Jedi.
  4. Nice interview - great to see some of the clips from older movies Danny worked on & hear about the methods used. Thanks for posting!
  5. Congratulations to CAS Awards winners

    Here's a link to the complete list: http://cinemaaudiosociety.org/54th-cas-awards-nominees/ Reminds me there still some movies & shows I need to see. Nice work, everyone!
  6. Lectrosonics is pleased to introduce SRc and SRc5P Digital Hybrid Wireless® dual-channel diversity "slot" receivers with Smart Tuning and SuperSlot™ compatibility, designed for top performance in tough RF environments, making them ideally suited for field production and other applications challenged by rough conditions. More here: http://www.lectrosonics.com/US/lectrosonics-introduces-the-src-and-src5p-receiver.html
  7. Overview/Review of the Lectrosonics Duet IEM System

    Derek, thanks for your questions. The IFB mode operates basically as you describe: it works very much like an R1a but with diversity and a better headphone amp. We don't have a lot of user feedback on that feature yet, but in our tests here, it walks fairly similarly to an R1a. Sound is about the same, limited by the transmitter audio processing/companding and the narrow FM deviation. With the current M2R hardware, it doesn't have the resources to do a 400 Hybrid mode - takes too much processing. No comment on digital SMs. Our standard answer to such questions is: if we were to design a digital SM transmitter series, what features are most important to you?
  8. Congrats to all the nominees this year! Fine work all the way around. Sound Mixing categories here: http://cinemaaudiosociety.org/54th-cas-awards-nominees/ Products here: http://cinemaaudiosociety.org/54th-outstanding-product-awards-nominees/
  9. Wireless in Europe

    Europe is going to the 470-700 MHz range as the US did back in 2010. Now, of course, the US FCC has auctioned off the 641-698 MHz band. I would not be terribly surprised to see that happen in Europe in 5-10 years, but we don't see any concrete signs of such actions yet. So, for now, the "safest" range worldwide is 470-614 MHz (608-614 MHz is reserved for radio astronomy in some countries, including the US). Most of what Lectrosonics sells in the US is the A1 and B1 bands (blocks 470, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23). In Europe, it is mostly B1 and C1 (blocks 21-26) if that helps. Our agent in Europe is Jim Bakker, +33 (0) 78558 3735 if you are interested in reaching someone there for advice.
  10. Stolen equipment - San Francisco

    Please send a list of the Lectrosonics gear with serial numbers to service.repair@lectrosonics.com so they can get it into the "Lost/Stolen" database.
  11. Lectrosonic UCR110 + UM110 Frequency Question

    These (and any block 33 units) stop at 861.900 MHz, so your F,F setting results in that frequency for the carrier.
  12. SRCs screen "bleeding"

    Hi guys, sorry this is happening. We have been sorting the LCDs to remove any bad ones for several months already, but up until now were unaware that the problem could be latent and not show up for some period of time. Of course we will be happy to replace those LCDs under warranty - please contact our Parts & Repair department at 800-821-1121 or service.repair@lectrosonics to arrange.
  13. Congrats to Roger Stevenson, Keith Rogers, Scott Weber, & Kyle O’Neal for the Emmy win for "Westworld - The Bicameral Mind" (winner for Outstanding Sound Mixing, 1 hour comedy or drama series). Great job, guys! And congrats to all the nominees - all these shows had great sound: House of Cards, Better Call Saul, Mr. Robot, and Stranger Things!
  14. Indy film aftermath- my sound experience

    Thanks for coming back in to tell us how it went!
  15. Experience in Russia

    All I can add is that our Russian dealers typically do buy mostly block 26 equipment, and a few things in higher blocks (27, 29) that are legal there but not in the US.
  16. Trade Shows and Expos

    Plasa isn't likely to have much concentration of field equipment. However, IBC is like the NAB of Europe. All major manufacturers of field equipment will have equipment on display there, mostly in Hall 8.
  17. Ssm with mcr42

    It should work quite well - there are quite a few SSMs out there being used with Sennheiser 3000 and 5000 Series transmitters. It will not, however, send battery level info.
  18. Frequency Coordination

    A comprehensive program like IAS generally makes coordination quick and painless. It does cost $500, however. IMO it pays for itself in time and by the elimination of frustration, though. The program includes most makes & model ranges of the wireless you own or will encounter. I use this software almost daily to either do my own coordinations or assist others with theirs. A less expensive app for this purpose is Freq. Finder, and I know a lot of people use it as well. While not as comprehensive as AES, FF works on a mobile device and is easy to use.
  19. Lectro Power Solution

    Robert - yes, the SRAES3 can output either analog or digital. There is a switch on the side to make the choice of what comes out of the TA3 connectors.
  20. A new player in the installed wireless game.

    Looks like a really well thought-out system for point-to-point wireless audio.
  21. When lavs attack

    LOL that is.... something.
  22. IMO 2 frames out would be the max - that is already 1/12 second or 83 ms (at 24 fps), and would be noticed by some people as "not quite right", as Joel points out above.
  23. Need 3 wirless mics

    Of the bands you list from their manual, the only ones that are legal for operation in the US (assuming those units have FCC type approval) are: 518-542 572-596 620-670
  24. Lectro SMQV and dweedle tones

    Glad to hear it, Alen!
