  1. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    If true, I know what I'll be upgrading to...
  2. Echo Park Horrible RF

    Yeah I have been here with shark fins in the past but today I am bagging it with whips only. Good news is that the coverage is all tight and and there's only a few lines (commercial) so I am just staying close and making it work!
  3. Echo Park Horrible RF

    This is my third time in the last ~2 years filming at Echo Park Lake. Does anyone else just get practically zero reception here regardless of frequency block? Seems like it is just constantly bombarded by RF (see 470-698mhz scan attached).
  4. DUNKIRK: Too Loud?

    I saw Dunkirk on 70mm in the Cinerama Dome on Sunset. I went with a buddy who had already seen it at the Universal City Imax where he said his ears were ringing afterwards. I am pleased to say though that the Dome screening of it was great and even though my friend had seen it before, he said the movie made a lot more sense (LOTS of characters and moving around in time in this picture...) since he actually could hear the dialogue proper and not be overwhelmed by just SFX.
  5. Camera Hops

    Well are you looking for hops or simple scratch? For simple mono sends for not too much $$$, I just use my Lectrosonics IFBT4 transmitter that I use with my R1A's anyways for IFB's, then use some old Sennheiser G3 receivers that are on the same frequency band, tune them into the IFB transmitter's frequency and it sounds pretty darn good (in IFB mode). Great range thanks to the 250mw Lectrosonics signal rather than a G3's 30mw.
  6. Bye-bye 600 MHz – Audio Technica Response

    I bought a venue field / SMQa's / SRB's loaded with nothing but 600mhz from New Zealand a few years back, probably will end up selling it right back that direction ironically enough!
  7. Lectrosonics LT vs SMQV

    Very nice and clean. Any particular reason why you eschewed two SRc's for the LR receivers?
  8. Wireless - Is the sky falling?

    Well it seems like the "repacking" of channels has begun. Article in the LA times today about how KSCI is going off the air due to "the station’s involvement in a profitable auction of its spectrum". They are 494-500mhz NTSC channel 18. I'd imagine someone big like KNBC (36) or KCBS (43) is probably taking their spectrum space. I have 6 SMQV transmitters in the 600mhz range (youch). To reblock or sell out/upgrade, that is thy question of my sound life lately...
  9. 470-512MHZ

    With how unpredictable the FCC has been lately, who knows. Half the time I wonder if the future of sound recording is just going to be booms and plant mics a la "the old days".
  10. Perhaps the ultimate location speaker

    Turning ordinary items into speakers is somewhat of a trend right now. A seller at my mom's vintage market comes and sells things like these (he also does custom builds - he'll put a speaker and amp into damn near anything for you) every month.
  11. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Well this is kind of a no brainer to buy if you're picking up one of these mixers...
  12. Show me your bag

    How do you like your UR5's? Using them with UR1m's?
  13. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Looks like it would be a great backup recorder for travel gigs. Small enough to keep stored away somewhere without adding tons of weight to your bag, but with enough features to "make things work" if your main unit fails.
  14. PSC RF Multi SR Six Pack

    With that DB-37 connection on the back which outputs all six audio channels as well as provides power for the unit, I wonder who would be able to make a cable for that and for how much $$$. Seems like it would be great to be able to use this is in the bag with the standard connectors on the side, but then be able to grab it and quickly plug in the DB-37 cable to a cart / hook up the antenna connections and have it be a cart rig too.
  15. I believe it was the 1999 "Sawtooth" PowerMac G4 was one of the first computers that had an option both for a Zip drive and DVD-ram drive. I remember CompUSA showing off the DVD capable drives by playing Top Gun on DVD on one of those original Apple Cinema Display (LCD) screens hooked up via this magical new connector called "DVI". High tech stuff!
