    A bag for Sonosax SX-R4+RC8+ Combo

    Thank you all for your advice! I now use an SXR4, old model, a couple of lectrosonics 210, an Audio Limited A10 dual channel system, a two channel mixpre (non digital) if I need more mic inputs to feed the line inputs of the recorder. Let me tell you the story behind my request. The new year is giving me the oportunity to work on a 7 weeks movie, not a big one, but not an indie one. Since I wish to upgrade my SXR4 for some time, this movie, a 3 weeks documentary around the world in June, and some other jobs, are a good occasion to upgrade and buy something new; my wish list is: SXR4plus, RC8 controller, a second wide band dual channel radio mic system, an active antenna splitter. My first question, for the RC8 users is how useful it is? I can imagine it's useful on a movie, to solo each track during a dialog scene, and to speak to the boom operator by the slate mic; but do you find it useful in other situations too? In a one man band situation (my 90% jobs to this day), for a documentary with 3/4 radio mics and a boom, is it worth the extra cost, in your opinion? An active antenna splitter is of course useful in a movie, but maybe in a doc I could go on using the whips, or use a passive splitter with my two lectro sna600. Powering everything from the dc output of the SXR4plus is a good solution if I use only one A10 system, but, if I buy a second one, the 7 W recorder output is not enough to feed 2x 4,4 W A10 receiver. I could go with the new small dual channel Wisycom MPR52, or the mcr42, but I do not know if using different brands with different technologies is a plus, since you have different weapons, or a minus, since you could have different sounds. About the bag, my first question, I already own a big petrol 614, a small petrol 607, a small Camrade/Souns devices Bag; it was for a SD302 mixer, and from the picture I think it's close to the Portabrace you show me Patrick. So I'm looking for a compact bag able to be adapted to the audio kit I'm thinking about. The Ktek small Stingray seems to be a good choice. Thank you again!

    A bag for Sonosax SX-R4+RC8+ Combo

    Hello everybody, I'm planning to buy a Sonosax SX-R4 + RC8+ combo. I'm looking for a bag able to keep them together with a couple of slim receivers, an np1 battery, and an antenna splitter when needed. Seems to be that the Ktek Stingray Small is deep enough to accomodate on three rows the recorder, the rotary controller and the receivers, but I don't think there is some room left for the antenna splitter. Morover I don't like to much the idea I can not close the outer pouch of the bag with a zip, even if the lateral zipped pouches seem to be spacious enough to keep my tx, lavs and accessories. I like the Orca OR30, too, but it seems not deep enough to put everything in. I have an old Petrol 614, that I could use when I need to bring the full set, and I could buy a Ktek or an Orca for the lighter days. PortaBrace AO-SXR4AD8+ is a bit odd, to me, since it has no lateral covering. Is there some of you that found a good bag for the Sonosax combo? Thank you in advance for your time, have a nice day,

    Thank you all for your advice, I'll try to test a OR30 before buying one.

    Show me your bag

    Hi Mathias, is your bag an OR30? I have a very similar set up, and I'm going to replace my old petrol PS607. I'm looking for something a little larger then mine, and the OR30 seems a good choice. Thanks a lot!

    Zaxcom QRX-100 my first impressions

    Hello to everybody, my name is Marco Zambrano, I'm a sound mixer and boom operator located in Italy, I know this is a quite old post, but I've been offered a zaxcom qrx100 with fib option and a couple of trx900la, in block 23. It's my first time with zaxcom: I'm attracted by the recording and IFB capability, but I'm wondering if this system is still a good choice today, since the new wide band products are out. Someone reported me that the new wideband series is the only one really reliable. About the rf spray problems I couldn't find a clear answer: is a problem affecting the qrx100, too? I'd very appreciate your opinions. Thank you very much and have a nice day.
