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

Yes, indeed!

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

I haven't seen a street price yet on the SRc, but that's good to know. A $200 premium is downright affordable.

Any updates on the AES plate?

Lectrosonics just announced their new SR-AES3 Audio Output Adapter, a new endplate which gives ALL SR receivers AES digital output capabilities. Fitted with a word clock port, it can be run as analog, AES digital with internal word clock (no external connection) or as AES with external word clock. Now, any SR series receiver will be capable of delivering 2-channel digital audio direct to the mixer or recorder eliminating the gain staging questions of "what should my output level be?" and "what should my input gain on my camera/mixer be?"

An update on the SRAES3 digital output plate:

The question came up on the Facebook "Freelance Sound Mixers & Recordists for TV/Film" group:

"If you're inputting a few of these [SRc with SRAES3] into a recorder with sample rate converting inputs then syncing them all with wordclock is unnecessary, correct?"

In talking with our engineering department, we all agreed that "there is no reason we can think of that it won't work". That's great in theory, but what about a test?

So we set up some tests by using two SR receivers, each with the SRAES3 output plates, feeding a 688 via the AES3 inputs. We did not use a word clock master. Each SR was fed by two transmitters, for a total of four channels. First, we tied all four lav mics together with a rubber band so that we would have basically a mono signal going into the four RF channels, thus into the two SRs, two SRAE3 plates, and into two dual AES3 inputs on the recorder.

From there, we mixed those four tracks back to to mono (actually we mixed each of those tracks both to the L and R tracks of a stereo file). The results were fine - no phasing, no issues at all. We also then separated the mics & transmitters around the office, and recorded ambience, i.e. room tone. No issues at all.

If you're interested, here's a link to the first test file:

Hi Karl,

Can you make it "public" the file? I had to sign in to Dropbox to listen the file. Maybe someone has not have a Dropbox account.

:)

P.S Are you sure there is no issues? Nice music BTW.

I could download without logging into dropbox, just ignore the sign in screen and then click on the download button top right.
