    Countryman B2D or DPA 4080

    4080 sounds great, I think has a bit too much low end roll off (they’re really trying to counteract its proximity effect, though it still sounds great as all DPA lavs do) but is far far from visually discreet. Quite large, especially on a tie clip. Can’t speak to the countryman, it may be smaller.

    DPA 4098 Travel cases

    Glad they’re being made again! Love mine.

    TentacleSync E review

    For what it's worth, I've owned several of the original model and have been using 2 of the new ones for the last month or so. I've had no problems totally replacing the old ones with the new ones in my workflow, and I absolutely love the new cable locks. One tip that may help folks here that are newer to these boxes is that you always need to switch the frame rate on the tentacle to the proper setting before attempting to jam. I don't believe they will auto-jam and pick the right frame rate by themselves. This is one of the reasons I have enjoyed using the newer ones - being able to do this wirelessly. I have had no problems with mine doing this. Jamming from a 633, have used to feed C300, C500, Amira, Alexa, Mini, various Reds, FS7, F5, probably some Ursa models, etc.

    Hello… again!

    Allen we don't know each other but I know your voice very well from those MH videos way back when. Very helpful as I was first getting my head around that stuff. It's a small world, geez.. Welcome (back)!

    Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Nobody read the FCC materials yet? There's some cool info buried in there... Not the least of which is the new device looks to be 25/50/100mW..

    NEW: Timecode Systems | UltraSync One

    Here's hoping! A great day for TC generators...

    Rodelink power solution

    The issue is not so much that you'll need the right connectors as you need the right voltage. USB is 5VDC, where the outputs of your BDS are (likely) 11-16VDC depending on the charge of your batteries.

    DPA 4098 - first impressions

    FYI with the DPA gooseneck accessories, the 4080s can be rigged up to be nearly like a 4098 (you have to mount the goooseneck separate from the microdot into the transmitter, however.) I too wish for a flatter response model, but alas. The cutoff does help greatly when using them as intended as cardioid lavs attached to talent.

    Ambient Eumel & Lectro HMa

    You can save some money if the Lectro adapter is cheaper, since the HMa can be set to 5v power. I can confirm from my own experience that the HMa set to 48v plays just fine with the Eumel however.

    Very Funny, Lectrosonics FAQ

    Works on my 411A! No score indicator however, so the game just kinda goes on forever.

    Lectro firmware update?

    I hope they add some way to USB firmware updates on an SRc, maybe a special back plate?

    Denecke TimeCode ToolBox

    The 10.1 update seems to have fixed it! Upon first launch, it gives me the whole "this app hasn't been updated" 32-bit warning, but after that functions ok? At least that's my experience on my AT&T 6 Plus...

    Substitute for Denecke TC Tooolbox

    Nope, it will only read an external signal.

    Ethernet connector / Alexa Mini

    Curious about this myself, so I tracked it down. Mad props to Arri for having pages of connector pinouts at the end of their manuals - p.174 in this case.
