    DIY camera snake?

    Have you consider the Remote Audio Multipair cable? It's a 3 channels (3 pairs) cable. It's sold by the foot. The channels are readily made for that purpose, color coded (blue, red and black for the stereo return), you just wrap them with techflex after the fan out and there you go. Used Neutricon 8 pins for the breakout part. Cost me about 100$ for a 23' snake.

    Noisy R1a?

    Even with volume at zero, next to turning it off there is a significant noise floor. Only solution I found so far is higher impedance HP. Tx is at a proper gain structure!

    Noisy R1a?

    Hello fellow soundies, I just bought lectrosonics R1a's and I find them very noisy, hissy. Has anyone encountered this issue? Mine are pretty new and the three of them has the exact same noise. Has anyone encountered this? Thanks !

    Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    I always tape the first 3" of cable (from capsule) with mole skin, I helps a lot.

    Nope, not the same. Twisting clips instead, with a secure button you can also clip if you want. IMO way better than petrol clips.
