  1. Q- A- @mano Congrats on getting the Schoeps BTW.
  2. Its kinda like saying "how come my Audi wagon turns slower than my BMW X3 but my Mercedes ML is the fastest?" They are different designs for different purposes. I would suggest getting three vehicles of the same make and model and comparing apples to apples, as opposed to apples to oranges to tomatoes. Then you could if you wanted to get into the actual Capsule and amplifier to perform critical listening test's once the variables have been removed. If you would like to know how to perform critical listening test will tell you, but I'm not gonna give it away. This is three completely different platforms.
  3. 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 opportunity to say how much I appreciate all in this community. I wouldn't think twice about buying a Deity product, if it fits my needs and budget.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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. Nobody even touched it. We're talking heavy hitters from around the globe. CEO's, CCO's, CFO's you name it. I only noticed because I opened one package to wipe down the mix console. If that was today all the Lysol wipes and hand sanitizer would be gone in seconds! I read a joke online that says " I've been washing my hands with sanitizer and cleaning everything so much that when I go to the bathroom my pee cleans the toilet!". There is going to be allot of "sanitizer" in the eco system in the coming years. My sister works for a large soap company. She's been working full steam the whole time. Just imagine the amount of cash the companies that have been open during this have made. The demand plus the scarcity has created profits unimaginable before. I just hope they use that cash to make more productions!!! I like to think of cash flow like water, it always goes somewhere. I have heard more than one company refer to this as "Busier than Thanksgiving or Xmas". It's feast and famine at the same time! "So far, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on U.S. alcoholic beverage sales has been different from the experiences in past recessions. Alcoholic beverage sales have spiked significantly, but the impact has been uneven. Some producers have seen their sales soar, while others have seen them decimated." Take care buddies!
  7. I wrote this big long post with lots of suggestions, I went way overboard. I'm gonna wait and see how this plays out before I decide to jump in. Nobody else thinks the Pre amp on the Tascam is the biggest issue??? After all it is designed for DSLR's.
  8. Just go to the website, and check it out, they already had most of my employers listed, the rest I filled in the address and contact info, start with registering and opening a claim. You can ask questions directly through email, it says 6-7 days for response, but I got my answer response in an hour. FYI I filled it out ( different forms) what felt like 5 times. I don't know why but I had to do some things twice, maybe because of their heavy traffic during the rush. http://uio.edd.ca.gov
  9. I was supposed to work the entire month of March... Hello unemployment insurance, my name is Dalton. My union sent out emails suggesting UI and if you get sick (with the real thing), your eligible for disability ins. Don't pass because you think you don't need or deserve it. I passed back in 2009 because I thought I was "too good/hard working". I wish I had signed up for UI then.
  10. Marin IJ link passengers exposed to corona virus were out in the community All my local work is cancelled until further notice. I started counting coins again.
  11. @LuckyNat I can't process this right now, but I will get back to it one of these days. Your response is appreciated. You have some proper points.
  12. I am working on a SD888 and going through the steps to connect a Samsung Tablet running the latest version of Android. This is how I got it working, your experience may vary. The USB A-USB Micro cable is a possible fault and should be swapped out if suspected. Not all USB-A_USB Micro cables are the same. -Download SD Remote App. Plug in the USB cable to the 8xx. -On the Android Tablet, -Turn on USB developer mode, -( it's a hidden key tap ,6 taps for me), Settings->about tablet->Software information-> Build Number ( Tap build Number 6 times to turn on developer tools) -Go to Developer Tools->Turn on USB debugging, -Set USB to MIDI (Developer Options->Networking->Default USB Config) -On the SD 8xx, Press menu -go to 1.POWER -go to 5. USB-A Charge Output -Confirm 500mA ( not 1.5A) FYI- _You have to use a USB A-USB Micro cable ( or whatever USB type your tablet uses) to use the SD Remote app. _SD888 does not function with the IOS Wingman APP. ( Wingman is being replaced by SD Remote). _The SD Remote app will be available on IOS soon. ( It will require the BT antenna) _Coming from using a 6xx series mixer, the 8xx series mixer was intuitive, easy to use, and required minimal head scratching. I got it setup in under an hour. _The colored LED's are very pretty. I like the color scheme. _I made the screen on the 888 freeze, I don't know how, SSD,SD1,SD2 were unformatted. The buttons still responded, I didn't put on cans to listen, power cycled the machine and no more issues. What would this thread be without a pic!
  13. Any puplicity is good puplicity.
  14. What TX are you using it with? Are you using a Microdot-TAF adapter? No repair, it's trash. It's a molded connector, I dissected one once, I'll post pics if I get motivated. The issue is not the actual microdot collet, it's the hair thin cable thats lost connection somewhere along the inside of the molded connector. I suggest chopping it off and selling an unterminated 4098. Put that toward a replacement. unterminated DPA mics still fetch a fair amount. Best, D
