DBa Transmitter Announcement

35 posts in this topic

That sounds awesome! Very happy to see more and more manfucturers are moving to fully digital systems.
I have two immediate thoughts with this:
1. When is the planned release? And when in Europe?
2. I am surprised to see the TA5 on these. I was under the impression that Lectro would be moving to Lemo on all tx?

Hi Constantin, thanks for your interest. The advantages of digital transmission are many, but there are also of course challenges. The main goals of this product are A) pristine audio quality, comparable with any wireless system on the market (20-20K response, 24 bit/48 kHz conversion) and B) strong encryption for those that need it (government, corporate, sports broadcast).

To answer your questions:

1. The DBa is released now in the US, Canada, Mexico and South America. We do not yet have EU certification for this product and I'm not yet sure when that will happen.

2. Only the SSM has the Lemo connector at this time. It remains to be seen if we will put the Lemo on other transmitters, but it is a possibility, depending on the demand.

The DR receiver system is compatible with the DBa. The DR is similar in layout to the Venue 2, but is a digital receiver with switchable analog/AES digital outputs.

The press release mentions its powered by 2 AAs so maybe the size of a SMQV?

No dimension spec on Lectro site.

Is the DR a modular system like the Venue 2?

Yes, it is very similar in layout, with up to 6 channels in 1RU. It also has AES/EBU outputs in addition to analog. And since it is digital, it has clock in/out as well.

Just as a point of comparison, the DBa and DR combination has the same range and walk test ability as an SM and Venue combination or UM400a and UCR411a combination. To be specific, the DBa and DR walk as well as anything we have made.
Best,

In very crowded radio environment digital transmission seems good, but in other situations I have not noticed a good range with digital transmission with whips antennas. Two weeks ago I added in my "all brand" test Audio LTD 1010 and Sennheiser 6042/D9000 : the result was the same (the new Zaxcom's modulation ZHD was still not available in France two weeks ago so I have not tested it.

ZHD transmitters are available in all CE countries.  We would love for you to try ZHD48.

I'm interested in these transmitters but not until they can run with a receiver in dual mode. Is it still the case that they cannot?

I think ZHD 96 works in dual mode on a QRX 200.

 

... Wasn't this thread about a new lectrosonics product? ;)

Maybe Lectrosonics and Zaxcom will kiss and  make up and all digital TX RX will work together in piece and harmony... (:

Are these DBa Tx going to work with a (suitably tuneable) D4R?

Or put it another way, will there a bag-able Rx for this system?

RE: Bagable RX for this system

The read I get from TPTB is "probably," but none available at this time.
