  1. I haven't weighed it but I would guess empty it's around 100lbs
  2. Just finished the main build for this cart today. All 80/20 profiles with Rackman Aluminum Drawers. Still have a few things to add but it's functional for now. Booms go on the left side, carpets on the right.
  3. I'll take some.
  4. The newer vdb poles are pretty quick to change the cable on. Less than 5 minutes. No soldering required.
  5. I'm guessing that the rig I posted is setup for full time shore power but has the APC for backup in case of loss of power. I would think that it is a fairly power hungry rig with the QL1 and Mac mini setup.
  6. If they are for theatrical then I would switch them if you don't have a specific need for the microdot.
  7. I have a lot of microdot DPAs and I have mixed feelings on them. Most of the time when doing basic narrative work I don't experience any problems with the connectors. If the actor is extremely physical in a scene I can occasionally experience problems and need to tape the cable to the connector. I also do some musical theater on the side and we tape all of our connectors. We experience lots of problems in the theater with connectors coming loose. We have multiple systems so the microdot is nice when we have to switch around packs but otherwise I would have done hardwired connectors. It really comes down to how physical the actors are imho.
  8. Wow that's a lot of wireless mics over a large area.
  9. I have this one of the setup underneath the mixer.
  10. Here is a cart I saw at NAB a couple years ago. I believe this is Fernando Delgados cart.
  11. My hands are fairly normal size, I guess
  12. I was able to see them at NAB so I was already knew how big they were. They are a fantastic size. I'll upload a picture in my hand
  13. Just got my double pack today. Here's everything they come with plus a user guide. Also charged and ready to go.
  14. That's pretty amazing John. Really amazing to see how far recorded sound has come. One thing that I found interesting in the article is that he never intended it for playback but rather for the study of sound.
  15. Here is an article I found about early sound. Apparently this year marks the 200th anniversary of the man who invented recorded sound. http://www.npr.org/sections/alltechconsidered/2017/05/22/529550254/at-the-dawn-of-recorded-sound-no-one-cared
