  1. A DSQD for Europe and other countries is on the project list though it is hard to give a firm timeline. Sorry to give a fuzzy reply but the future is fuzzy on that one. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  2. Seems like a good idea and should be relatively easy to do. I will pass it on. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  3. I sent Karl at Lectro an inquiry. You should hear something today or so. Typically we do EU testing (CE) at the same time as FCC testing but EU has more paperwork to get through. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  4. Data sheet now lists -3 dB at 11.3 kHz. Probably exactly the same specs as before just 3 dB point instead of 1 dB point. The cutoff is not due to sample rate but bandwidth restrictions (occupancy) of two audio channels under FCC rules and EU rules. Bandwidth occupancy for 0 Hz to 10 kHz is the same as for one single octave of 10 kHz to 20 kHz. Tossing away that upper octave allows two channels of audio information. It's not what I'd pick for my hi-fi system but that's not its purpose anyway. Plus at my age, a 10k range is becoming overkill. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  5. I can't imagine they haven't. Wouldn't be like the crew to not double or triple check it. Also, the frequency architecture of the Venue is different from the SRc and by this I'm speaking of the various conversion frequencies and IF filters as you go from the carrier frequency down to baseband. I will ask, just to triple check. By this time there are more than enough users to expose that bug again. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  6. The Venue 2 receiver system was made available this week in the 941 Band. This band is open to Part 74 users (sound mixers) and has become a defacto traveling band. Part 15 (unlicensed users) are excluded. Four models of transmitters are available in the 941 band. Currently, users are seeing very clean scans in these bands. See info at : https://www.lectrosonics.com/lectrosonics-venue2-receiver-system-now-available-in-941-960-mhz-band.html Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  7. Done. For some reason I can only put in two tags so I removed Lectro. (??) LEF
  8. It would have about 15+ decibels of loss if the amp is not powered. It needs a bypass relay to do what you want. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  9. Showing once again that Smoking Tumbleweeds is deleterious to your mental health. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  10. In its pass-band, the PCA900 has the same gain and directionality as a sharkfin. If you don't need the wide pass-band of the sharkfin, the narrower pass-band of the PCA900 can reduce the amount of RF hitting the front end of the receiver. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  11. Hi Ty, That would give you a 34 Volt drop on a DIN standard 48 Volt supply, i.e., 14 Volts at the mic pins. As I remember, the Earthworks mic is a high current draw mic with one leg being a current mirror of the other leg. We had to sell a pin flipping adapter for our HM series plug on transmitters. Best Regards, Larry Fisher

    The Lectro DSQD 4 channel receiver is Dante as standard. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  13. Hi Eric, Karl Winkler at Lectro just sent me a note that he has made the instructions less confusing. There are still a lot of choices. If you don't know the series of firmware your unit uses due to a botched reload of firmware, a quick call to service with the unit's serial number and the model number stuff from the blue tag will get you in order. The proliferation of choices is somewhat due suppliers changing their DSPs and CPUs. Then some of it is due to bug fixes. Occasionally, it's due to bored engineers. Seriously, thanks for pointing this out. It helps both us and our suffering users. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  14. Hi Chris, It would work if the zeppelin were several times larger than the wavelength of the lowest frequency you wanted to block. If 100 Hz were your cutoff, the diameter would have to be greater than 40 feet. The more practical solution is what the mic designers do right now with diaphragms somewhat open on both sides, tuned chambers and interference tubes. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  15. Ok, I was confused by the "The hits I experienced, I have also experienced with My current Venue,". Evidently this is two different scenarios. Let's see what a different DSQD brings. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
