  1. i agree the price is very high. At least its cheaper than the oasis.. but all things zaxcom have always been very expensive so no surprise there. Colored caps for the faders is an excellent idea.
  2. What are peoples thoughts on the new control surface? I think it looks amazing and is a great successor to the mix 8. I do hope that the trim pots can be fully routable as faders or zaxnet trims tho, that way you can have 16 faders in a super tiny control surface. I have gotten used to mixing 12 tracks from the bag with my nomad 12 + fp8 combo so mixing with rotary faders is not a problem for me. I love how flexible and simple the fp8 is so I hope that carries on into the Aria. Either way I am very intrigued. Love the rugged design and maintenance free faders, also the zax hub integration and nomad compatibility. Great job zaxcom!
  3. I do not like that you need a phone to control it.. Also that run time is really low and the price is really high. I do feel the ZMT4 runs circles around the A20mini.
  4. Yea DPA lavs are crazy fragile, and they age terribly. I almost consider them expendables at this point.. Thats why I dont buy them anymore. They do sound great tho..
  5. it would be great to have a mixed color bag (;
  6. i think its important for your battery case to be able to operate while the lid is closed. Many pelican cases cannot charge the np1 type batteries unless they are open, which if you are shooting in crazy locations where there might be rain or dust its nice to have the case shut close (with a internal fan for cooling) while still charging all the batteries. I find for my uses your average tool box (adapted to our needs) works really well.
  7. 7506s are the best location sound headphone in my opinion. They are terrible for music and dont sound very good in general, but because you can hear all the problems very clearly they are the best. With upgraded cushions they are very comfortable. Also they are well priced and fairly reliable, and they are easy to fix or replace, and they fold, and the cushion on top is nice to rest a boom on, and the list goes on..
  8. I bought mine to compliment my cs3e and i am very happy. I found that i like how it sounds more with the rycote wind muff on better than having the mic naked or with the provided wind screen. So I just keep it on all the time, even indoors.
  9. I know many sound mixers might have different opinions, but if you can afford zaxcom go zaxcom.. no brainer for me. They might be overkill for your intended use tho. Nonetheless they are good tools that should serve you well (even tho they have a bit of a learning curve). For more complicated shoots (narrative) nothing beats an experienced sound team that know how to listen and fix problems on set. Not to mention sound mixers normally have amassed large bags of tricks and tools for different situations. But for interviews and such you should be fine.

    bag drop

    I have seen big monitor screens that fold away and only take up one rack space! its very expensive tho last i checked.
  11. its just a matter of time. 4 channel slots are the way of the future. Any company that does not go that route will just not be able to compete anymore in my opinion.
  12. the sony MDR7506 are not perfect, but they are the best for me. They fold into a little ball so its easy to transport them, they have the perfect headband for resting a boom pole on the top of your head, if you change the cushions to thicker ones they are the suuuper comfortable, and they are not to expensive. Because with the craziness of location sound work headphones get mistreated more than they should. Also fixing them or getting parts for them is easy and cheap. Also they sound good enough or bad enough so that I can identify problems. I also am a fan of the curly cable, but I know that is a personal preference.
  13. Thank you for explaining, I guess some people will surely like and find dante useful in the 888. It seem to me it is more for cart based work even tho i have seen big bags with DSQD receivers so that is definitely an option (albeit an expensive one). It would make sense if sound devices is planning on making their own super slot receivers that work with dante and integrate into their recorders. They have to find a way to compete with zaxcom in my opinion.. It is also a nice feature of dante that you can daisy chain two recorders and make them behave as one. Still a bummer for me that there is minimal AES built in.
  14. you can make your own or have somebody make it for you. The schematics are on the manual of the nomad. Also gotham sound or trew audio can make them for you. Surely somebody in hong kong can make it for you tho.
  15. AES makes more sense in a recorder with the 888 size and track count in my opinion. How does one even work with dante in a sound bag?? And the fact that you need to buy an aes expansion thing to have aes on a 7000 dollar machine is cray cray.
