Hi Adam, the NiMH selection gives you a timer. The reason for this is that NiMH batteries have a very flat discharge curve so a battery meter is impractical.

Hi John, any frequency band is a hardware issue. There will be SSMs, VRT2 and SRc/SRc5P on the B2 band.

Excited!!

What's the difference between B1 and B2?

B2 will be blocks 22, 23, 606, 24 - That will allow people using 606 transmitters to use B2 and utilise all frequencies. Currently B1 and C1 straddle half of 606 each, so 606 transmitter owners (UK) wouldn't be able to use all frequencies on their transmitters if choosing either B1 or C1.

These look great - and I'm sure they will sound phenomenal as well. 

Is it possible to upgrade existing SRb units to wideband SRc?

Cheers,

Every single piece is different including the outside case. It would cost more than a new unit to upgrade.

The only thing I can think of is the SmartTune feature which is a step-by step setup process we've been employing in the Venue, LR and R400. By following this process, then using IR sync, you can have your transmitters set up on good frequencies in less than 5 minutes.

Case changes were made for new features such as IR sync. As Karl said, outside dimensions remain the same to fit all of the current accessories and all the slot cameras.

there was a post somewhere on jwsound about an AES endplate being in the works for the distant future, knowing the Lectro crew are frequenting these boards may I make a far fetched request that if there is any possible

way to make a switchable endplate version that can do analog/aes this would be an amazing thing? love aes and hope to see it on more cameras, but if you never know day to day what you are patching into, an aes plate is not going to be a good default plate. something you can switch on a job to job basis though.....(this could also hold true for bagged sr to mixer as well)

yes an endplate can has both digital and analog would be really great.

And for Octopack, is there will be a new version comes out as well ?  I'd love to see them have digital output as well.

RE: the AES endplate - yes both analog and AES mode - this is just starting in design (but we have started!) so don't expect it overnight.  It will be switchable between analog and AES, and provides for external power input.  Be bigger than standard endplates to allow circuit room but we will make it as tiny as we can.  It will be backwards compatible with the other SR receivers.  Think a little deeper than the SREXT but looking quite a bit like it.

RE: the Octopack - we've seen some interesting posts asking for additional capabilities - some good ideas there.

The SRc to me looks like a real winner. Having the flexibility of three blocks is a no-brainer. Although you have to weigh that against the SRc's price of $3000, vs. $2000 for the SRb.

So it will work with SRa and SRb receivers, too? That would be brilliant! Will it add AES capability then as well?

Street price difference is only $200. ($2299 SRc, $2099 SRb) the $3080 price is MSRP, but no one is charging that amount
