  1. I hear you, Jim Feeley, I have a good few of the older Pelicans and my older arthritic fingers feel the pain when using them, but short term pain etc etc
  2. I use the RF Venue Diversity fin on my smaller cart. On the main unit cart i use 2 Lectro ALP620s. In the bag, I use whips. Range, of course is stellar with the Lectro fins, but the RF Venue is a close second Whips have much more limited range, so I keep the receivers as high as I can in the bag.
  3. Separate is good in this case. Many tasks only work well with one way communication. (overly simplified). For TC, bi-directional cables can induce errors from one device to the next. single direction cables make life simpler. They should be well labelled with the signal direction marked. Just my 2 cents
  4. Sorry to hear that, Henry, about customer service. I have dealt with Canford's a few times now for replacement parts, and a new boom and found them very good and responsive to my inquiries. The Panamic Maxi that has 3 stages and goes to 14 feet. It has been our go to pole for drama for over 20 years now. We have 3 of them now, and a 4 stageSsuper Maxi 16 footer - "built well, and just feels good to use" No experience with a 5 stage Panamic. The 14 foot Maxi is very light and stiff, collars work flawlessly, repair parts available, and everything I use has the Panamic quick release attachments on it. My VdB documentary booms have the fittings added for the Panamic release, as well as my super shorty Ambient. I guess you are aware of the caveat about tightening the Panamic quick release - find the end of slot and make sure the flange on the thumbscrew seats in the circle, not just close. (just a tip for anyone new to Panamic)
  5. Yes Constantin, I also pay it no heed since the overview is what I find very useful and quick. Jim
  6. FYI Constantin, The “large display” for a single TentacleE is not accurate, only the small display which shows all active TentacleEs is correct. Large display on a single can be about 2 seconds late. Maybe they will fix this in a later firmware release. Not a big deal for me as I use the comparison screen usually.
  7. "Comfortable foam handle".... Hmmm
  8. The Halter Technical scene monitor seeem to be decent for the price. As afewmore years mentioned I am in favour of 1 wire to headset, one reason I got some.
  9. 2 cables - one to each ear. Right away, No.
  10. I have a few new ones and they do seem a bit stiffer, but I assumed they will soften up with use. I have never encountered a problem with a COS-11 cable and have been using them since the early 2000s. No problems with showing through clothing on the newer ones so far.
  11. Wow, that is quite a unique set of gremlins there. Hope Lectro can solve it ASAP.
  12. Did you try Nagrit in Rome. I'm sure they would ship to anywhere in Italy.
  13. The nut in the picture looks like a nylock nut. It has that roundish dome. Maybe it just lost its grip or something.
  14. Does anyone have a handle on specific Harmonized Tax codes for these items? Jim Rillie Production Sound Mixer
  15. Looks like you are in a 60Hz country!
  16. Yes, it works as do any stereo headphones with Comteks, but my question regards the left and right ear being out of phase with each other.
  17. Sounds like a great deal. Are these headphones compatible with Comtek PR-216 - meaning are they stereo or do they send comtek signal in mono (not in phase one ear and out of phase other ear) which conventional stereo headphones do? That would eliminate the need for a mono-to-stereo adapter in order to get a true mono signal.
  18. I agree with Dan.That’s what I always heard when asking my mentors about the origin of MOS.
  19. Sorry, rant on If you have all those extras going on the camera, why on earth would you want to add two receivers (or a dual channel receiver) as well? Wouldn't it be more efficient to hire a professional to handle sound? Chances are you will get much more usable sound that way rather than playing around with added technology you don't seem to have a clue about. Isn't video transmission, follow focus, operating the camera and framing, composing and exposing correctly etc etc consuming your skills and time? You do realize, that this is a professional sound persons forum...
  20. Maybe the Demerbox guys could come up with something?
  21. I would think yes to your last question, Jay.
