  1. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    A client was recently confused as to why I wasn't able to sync a Lectrosonic R1A to his wireless Apple headphones. "But it's wireless!"
  2. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Very cool!
  3. Lectro SRc field reports?

    At this point, looks like it might be wise to invest in that new Lectro SRUSB plate to do your own firmware updates rather than paying for shipping/insurance + downtime to get the factory to update the firmware.
  4. Farewell innovation?

    Kind of funny that the company that didn't have wireless products till 2001 is suing the company the had them in 1975.
  5. camera link

    I've been using my IFBT4 in my bag next to my SRc and SRb for years. No problems so far...

    G3 at +12db and the Alexa's preamp turned up a bit has yielded enough oomph when I send tone to match the level on my mixer's output.
  7. Lectro SRc field reports?

    I don't believe it did. I was mostly having screen and back light issues so that part of the unit was replaced.
  8. AES inputs on high track machines

    I know you want a DC, AES option BUT Tascam does have a new Dante box (isn't there a Dante option for the X3?). It's 1u and takes 22w which I'd imagine you could rig to a DC inverter pretty easily. Can't beat the price either... Tascam ML-16D Apparently they make a 32 channel version as well. Not too shabby for $2k Tascam ML-32d
  9. Sell it all but keep a c-stand (for locked off interviews) and a stinger.
  10. wireless lapel systems for budget

    See if you can't get your hands on some SMQa or SMDa's (250mw and 100mw locked respectively). They aren't backlit but are the same dimensions / have most of the same features as the SMQV's but are currently being dumped on the used market for pretty darn cheap. I picked up a 411a/SMDa recently for $1200 shipped. I have some SMQa's as well although they only get about 4-5 hours on rechargeable AA's, they sound great. The SMDa gets 8 hours since it's only 100mw.
  11. Different TASCAM HS-P82 Hardware Versions?

    Weird.... seems like B&H has the photos you're talking about. I wonder if it's a mistake in that it's images from a prototype version before it was finally released? I noticed on the top it seems (pretty blurry) it says "HD-P8" which if you google that, it refers to the rackmount version.
  12. Good source for batteries in Toronto?

    Give the 2450 Ladda batteries from Ikea a shot. I've been loving mine and you can't beat the price.
  13. Lectro SRc field reports?

    I got my SRc back from the mothership a couple weeks ago (its second trip there). Seems to be working fine for me now...
  14. 1/4 Track Playback Head On A Nagra IV-S ?

    I'd hate to ruin a great working Nagra but maybe reach out to a place that restores them?
  15. Hirose-powered Mac Mini.

    One advantage of these new USB-C laptops though is the fact that you can get battery packs for them that run the machine straight over USB.
