  1. I wouldn't run a consumer level (-10) unbalanced output 100 feet. There is a lot of potential for noise. Do you have a mixer, mic pres, or anything you can use to drive a balanced signal to your cart?
  2. Love my Edsyn Loner: https://www.edsyn.com/product/ST/CL1080.html Cheap? Heavens no. But I've used it for everything I've worked on for 15ish years with no issues.
  3. The Sennheiser has a 3.5mm connector, the E6 can be purchased with an XLR or 3.5mm. Either will plug directly into a MixPre 3.
  4. Also, the site lists $300 as the introductory price.
  5. I'd start here: http://www.416tupgrade.com/416Tupgrade.com.html
  6. My guess is that the price is adjusted to fit the market. Most people aren't going to want to pay $600 for a plugin to run on a $885 recorder (MP6-II). If you paid $4200 (or more) for your recorder $600 doesn't seem so steep, especially compared to a $3000 DNS-2 that needs power, cabling, and adds routing complexity.
  7. SyncBacs don't work on Hero 8 (yet) or Max, only 4, 6, and 7.
  8. Audio LTC is doable on older models but seems to fail miserably on newer cameras; I can do it on my Hero 3 Black but my Hero 7 mangles the LTC. More info here:
  9. If you have an audio input adapter for the Hero 4 you can try recording LTC straight out of your timecode box. This works great on my Hero 3 Black, and not at all on my Hero 7 so you definitely need to test. I love the idea of the SyncBac but don't need it enough to justify the expense.
  10. After having issues with cell coverage when I was streaming meetings held in basements I took the sub output from my mixer and ran it into my laptop. I used the online meeting option of my office phone system to set up a webmeeting that the live captioners could join. Be easy enough to do the same with Zoom, Skype, or any other platform as long as you have internet service. Obviously not as convenient in the field.
  11. I took an 1/8" sub output at mic level from my F8n into a mono summing cable I built and ran it into 1/8" to USB-C adapter on my Pixel 3. Used it dozens of times to feed captioners during livestreams. Also worked with iOS 1/8" to Lightning.
  12. Running Gqrx has pretty painless on a Mac for me. Can be downloaded here: https://github.com/csete/gqrx/releases/download/v2.11.5/Gqrx-2.11.5.dmg Biggest issue for me is there's no practical way to scan; I found some scripts that I couldn't get to run due to incompatibilities with the OS version of some executable and I gave up. I did get it to work on Linux running on a virtual machine on my laptop, and decided this was too janky and if I really needed an RF scanner I'd buy an RF Explorer. I still enjoy futzing with the SDR, but doubt I'll ever use it on site.
  13. Looks like an Earthworks M series,
  14. Can the international versions of products like this be brought into the US by an individual? For example, if I happened to be in Vancouver, B.C. on vacation and went by Trew Audio could I buy this (or an Audio Limited A10, etc.) in person, bring it back to the states and use it as long as the frequencies are legal? I assume the biggest issue might be ensuring that firmware updates are the international version and not the crippled US one. Looks like an interesting system, although the lack of a volume knob on the output dings the usability as an IEM a bit.
  15. I've been meaning to play with Cleenfeed: https://cleanfeed.net/ Audio only, but even the free tier seems pretty usable.
