  1. I wish 2020 would pass away. I'm all out of tears. I met him in Vegas a few years back. I had no concept of his achievements. I could tell he was a big deal, he was very polite and cool with me. Eric posted a comment in one of my threads and I noticed immediately.
  2. Oh wow. You gotta see it to believe.
  3. Please let me know if you need help with cable management/fabrication.
  4. Shure probably won't make an RX that fits in a bag in this decade. Yes the Axient stuff sounds excellent but still has a 3MS delay. The delay is in the AD>DA. From what I was told, this wasn't enough of an issue with the current consumers. Shure still always has a place in my kit. Syncing the frequencies between the rack RX and the TX's on the Shure Axient system is a dream... Funny how they used the Shure UR5 RX chassis for all Axient RX's. My next investment will be a Sony wireless system. Same here, but with MAHA's.
  5. Have you compared it to a CMC641_INT Cabled_SD-MM1_A10TX setup? I can't believe the A10TX Pre's compare, but if they do, I would like to hear about it. This might be better for another thread. A10 VS. SD-MM1 Best, D
  6. I might be back end of August. I took a CoV-19 Compliance certification course end of July. I hope the internal battery on my SD664 still holds...
  7. Set something up and see how long it last's. I bet not too long. Going from cold to hot kills most components quickly. Make test recordings and post them here for us to criticize and eviscerate. That criticism will be valuable information. Also be aware that someone hiking/walking that see's this object might steal it. I suggest a laptop cable type lock in addition to a small contact/ info card. Maybe even lie and say "this device has GPS tracking"… Someone else posted asking about same type of project and I suggested an actual outdoor weatherproof microphone. They are
  8. The interface look's cool. Perfect size for a spaceship!
  9. I sent back a Rx three times. Got the Rx back, exactly same problem. On the fourth attempt they pulled the " this item is no longer supported" " we don't even have parts in stock anymore". The kicker is that I had to pay out of pocket for the first return. I received a refund after the third return and a long drawn out back and forth with dept head.
  10. Find a Mentor asap. I suggest finding someone in the 695 union and buying them lunch, coffee and showing up 20 minutes early. Or you could be super savvy and email someone to setup a zoom meeting. I bet you would be surprised who would respond and oblige your request. For the Union, 695 is one of them, check your area.

  11. Q- A- @mano Congrats on getting the Schoeps BTW.
  12. Allot of goods are manufactured there. Whole n'other can of worms. FYI-I source locally when possible/practical. It'd be like saying Detroit/Automobiles in the 60's though. All the best is made there; Foxconn, etc... It is what it is. I don't relate to Deity, but I have respect for @Vincent R.. I've felt inclined to troll and bad mouth the company, but resisted because I like the general idea and the direction they are headed. I would prefer to support rather than tear apart. I've been following them from the git go. Just want to take to oppor
  13. Not treacherous, did you ever build models cars/airplanes when younger? I've made a few windscreens and cages, it was intimidating but not difficult by any means. Quite impressive when finished. Most have a few broken bits and bobs of rycote end caps and pieces that they keep around to fabricate a special purpose wind screen or one time use kinda thing. I think you should go for it. Let me know if you have any questions.
  14. Used to think it sucked to have more W-2's than 1099's. Crazy its already almost May. This is a real gut check for all. We cannot stress this enough.
  15. Unless they put the LAV in their mouths, I don't think there will be any issues. Anyone says anything then have a super deluxe Cedar Sinai decontamination station ready to go! ( a spaghetti jar full of %99 alcohol). If I have to wipe down 8-10 LAVS a bunch of times throughout the day I am going to blame @EmRR. 😜 In all seriousness it wouldn't be that tough to hang them up and give them a wipe while they're hanging. If it ever even comes up... FYI on the very last job I worked on FEB 27th in SF we had a table with lysol wipes and hand sanitizer.
