  1. BDS connectors

    Eric, it’s been awhile since I’ve owned any Zaxcom wireless but I remember it was just the STA150 adapter that required the shorter 760k connector. Pretty sure the receivers all use the longer 761k bds style plug.
  2. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Glen, did you guys consider a right angle version?
  3. More dynamic range, less distortion. Interesting! Unclear if these will be even more expensive or if they will replace the current models eventually. 4060 gets 6dB more dynamic range. 4061 will get 14dB more. 4063 as well. No 4071 for now or Slims and limited color selection. Just bought two new 4060s last month. Typical! http://www.dpamicrophones.com/core
  4. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Which block SRc? I remember reading that there are still known issues with the C1 block. Having to do with walkies and other interference. You should really get get in touch with Lectro directly if you have not already.
  5. Prototype BEC bracket for F55 Documentary Dock

    This looks great. Curious though, why not use the standard BEC side plate? The camera in this photo already has the necessary bracket installed under the battery plate. Mike Babcock at BEC is great. He made a custom QRX holder for me some years ago. What I would like to see from BEC group is some kind of universal plate that screws into 1/4-20 threads and allows you to mount any of their boxes. An abundance of 1/4-20 threads are common on most cameras. Cameras don’t seem to have the BEC side plate bracket installed these days and it would be useful to have something that could just screw down into the cheese plates that camera guys just love buying. While it’s easy to install the side plate bracket it’s not something you can really do in the field.
  6. 664 panic

    Put it back in the 664. Does it play ok there?
  7. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Also huge! Look for an 1/8th watt metal film resistor, 1%.
  8. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Snip that thing off and pay Your nearest cable maker to re-terminate it. My guess is Sanken adds a much larger resistor value than necessary.
  9. Wireless blocks in Chicago

    Just avoid 22 25 is also pretty much toast except for a small chunk on the top and bottom. Enough for 2-3 transmitters at least
  10. NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    Zaxcom has a patent on recording wireless. This explains the limited record functionality on this new SM
  11. NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    It does one or the other not both at the same time.
  12. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    I thought there might be a rubber seal of some sort but couldn't tell from the picture. Should have known you're already on top of it.
  13. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Also, how about some black or dark grey spring clips to go with these. The blue can occasionally be seen through thin fabric. I know Lectro is partial to that anodized blue but just sayin...
  14. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Not sure why you couldn't jam via the TA5. The recorder is a a great feature to have even if it's not regularly used. I do worry a bit about the position of the card slot. That surface tends to get a bit grungy over time. Though it is the best most foolproof spot to secure the card. Maybe a rubber plug to keep it clean when the recorder isn't in use. Thank you Lectro for listening to all of us who love the SM design.
