  1. That's about the same capacity of a nicad NP-1 if I recall correctly. I used to power a SD302 and 2 Micron receivers for most of a day on one of those. 😀
  2. To me it almost sounds like timecode bleed, but not quite. I also wonder if the power supply is underrated for the 633 or maybe just faulty.
  3. I have 5 ek300s and they get through a whole day, everyday since I've been using them. Typically they still have 2 bars left on the battery meter (LADDA 2450)
  4. Hammond Enclosures make a tiny project box, similar to this size. Otherwise, maybe find someone local who does 3d printing and get them to whip some up. I had some brackets made/printed for my slot in style receivers and they've held up beautifully so far (over 2 years ago)
  5. You'll be fine with Wisycom (wideband I assume?) I use mine around 572-577mhz in Toronto. I was recently in Montreal and didn't have any issues either.

    I watched a demo on YouTube where they removed cicadas (iZotope) from a dialogue track (from The Walking Dead, I believe) Made in Georgia, so you know the cicadas are hardcore.
  7. All 2 wire+bias. Any chance you can upload a sample file?
  8. I have a B6 (grey band) that I rarely use, but I believe it behaves the same as you're experiencing. My other lavs are COS-11 (3-wire) DPA 4060 (2-wire) and MKE-1 (2-wire) and they sound great all the time. What recorder are you using? Have you tried playback to see it maybe the distortion is from another part of the chain?
  9. A common term that I've heard amongst production office staff up here in Toronto for summer - "Women's Winter" aka: air-conditioning set way too low.
  10. Try a BNC connector that is for rg174.
  11. Keep a close eye on it for the first few days. I've had unreliable batteries in the past, as well as a poor connection of the battery.
  12. Nothing to be afraid of. Remove all screws from top and bottom of case. Note the longer and shorter screws and where they go. There are another 4 screws (I believe) that hold the XLR board in place. Remove them and the ribbon cable if you are comfortable with that. I think you can still change the battery without completely removing the XLR board.
