  1. I have a pair of Gefell UM70s that can be susceptible to RF, which seems to be a common with those mics. A common cheap fix is to make pigtails that connect the shield (pin 1) of the female XLR to the chassis with the unused tab on the connector. https://gearspace.com/board/high-end/111893-gefell-owners-users-what-you-need-know.html I'd contact Beyer support first, but this is something to look into if there aren't other options.

    IDX NP-9X ?

    Great to hear, thank you both! I’ll probably order two of them to replace some of my older LS7’s.

    IDX NP-9X ?

    Anyone here have experience with these new IDX batteries? https://idxtek.com/collections/battery/products/np-9x I need to replace a couple of my NP1 batteries and noticed these newer IDX batteries are 96Wh rather than 68Wh for @ $40 more. I'll probably go ahead and try one, but thought I'd ask since I didn't find any reviews here or elsewhere online.
  4. 😳 After seeing this thread I'll be using headphone adapter for my SD 10ii. Thanks for sharing this info.
  5. Nice setup. What are you using to hang the headphones on? I want to try something similar.
  6. I waited quite a while to get a new bag for my 633 as I wanted something not too big, but that could also fit a decent amount of equipment and be somewhat flexible setup wise. After checking out most of the competition I decided to get the new Porta Brace AO-1XB. I'm really happy with it so far and thought I'd share some photos of different setups It can accommodate. The only thing I am not sure about is the handle. I've never had one and don't like it getting in between me and the bag when I have it around my waist. But now that I have one, I really like it for moving the mixer around when it isn't around my body. Initially I thought I would get rid of the handles and make a remove-able one to attach to the rings... but I'm gonna hold off for a bit. Porta Brace did a great job with the side access, there is a lot of room to get to the different connectors and media slots. Adam Butler on the forum here had a lot to do with these bags. Nice work Adam!
  7. Hey jwill, I like the Kortwich bag/setup. Is that a custom order or a standard model? I don't see a 633 bag like that on their site. Does it have a side or bottom flap for the NP1 battery? Thanks, Chris
  8. Thanks for all the replies and good info.. I'm putting a list together of supplies I need to order.. Hopefully all from one place. Do you guys add shrink or a tougher plastic sleeve to the cable near the point of exit? I imagine it's necessary to keep the cable from getting pinched/damaged. Jim, I'm curious to hear about your method that doesnt require filling in the connector.
  9. Thanks for all the various DIY info on making these rt angle xlrs, I'm ready to make some for my 664 inputs. Matt, I'm curious which Neutrik's you used as I would like to avoid having to cut down the connectors if possible. Was it this model (with internal thread) http://www.neutrik.com/en/xlr/xx-series/nc3mxx-wob or the neutrik posted earlier (with the M17x1 thread on the back) http://www.neutrik.com/en/accessories/modules/nm3mxi Both look like they would work, but looks like you might have used the former.
  10. I should have replied sooner. . You guys were right, of course, even though it was new and barely used.. it was faulty. I bought a replacement which is working correctly and doesn't have drop outs when moved around. Thanks..
  11. I ordered my 664 from B&H and there was no external power adapter included.
  12. Thanks David.. I appreciate you digging that out. I hadn't seen that photo and didn't know it was an option.. Good to know as I try to come up with ideas.
  13. David, Thanks for the kortwich bag photos.. Very helpful as I plan on getting a kortwich bag made for my 664. What do you think of having kortwich add a pouch on each side of the waist belt (for transmitters or lav cases). would this work or intefere with normal use? Thanks Chris
